Into the night she ran
not knowing how she got there
or when it all began
Faster her legs took her
far from it all
it’s all such a blur
Stopping to catch a breath
smiling to herself
saved from her own death
Feeling so alone now
she knows the faithful One
she hits her knees to bow
You rescue me time and again
I feel Your strength
rising from within
As she rose to her feet
His presence comforted her
surrendering without defeat
Did you know that when I spoke your name it hurt so much I changed it to stop feeling the pain?
Remember when we played that same game, you called me your girl and showed me how to feel shame?
Tequila was your best friend and melted your brain. It’s what made you start to go insane.
That fly over there, hanging on the wall, knew before I could admit I was about to free fall.
Can you see down the pipe to the mud and the muck? What’s that but me, your most favorite piece of ass just to fuck.
She has this flame engulfed and fueled by rage. This girl won’t be contained any longer in her cage.
Did you know I held up this white flag of surrender? A daunting task but someone needs to remember.
Can you hear me down the road that now divides us forever? I’m shouting from my side, across the line that’s been drawn. You think you are so clever.
She listened to my cries and then words that she said, I hushed them to remind her all the tears that I have shed.
She then held my hand, looked me gently in the eye and said, yes and remember all the tears that you have shed.
