A song about being abused. This song is contributed to the "Give 'em Hope Campaign."

lyrics

Verse 1:
My dad was abusive
My mother turned a blind eye
She knew I was hurting
But she didn’t take a stand by my side
I wish I knew how my life
Was gonna end up then
If I could travel back in time
I’d tell myself “self you’ll be fine”

Hook 1:
I’d give em hope
I’d make him smile
I’d keep him company
Just for a little awhile
I’d mend his wounds and I’d free his soul
Yo I’d call his dad A fuckin’ fat asshole
Yo I’d hit em back I’d break his fuckin’ nose
Cause nobody fucks with me no more
I’d cut em down just like he did me
I wouldn’t offer the man no fuckin’ sympathy

Chorus 1:
And now my life’s better
And now that doesn’t matter
Cause I’m no longer battered
And my daughter don’t get hit I wont let her

Verse 2:
My boyfriend was abusive
And he didn’t treat me right
He was such a druggie
He didn’t know how to prioritize
I barely ever seen him
And when I did all we did was fight
If I could erase what I felt
I’d have realized that I’d be fine

Hook 2:
I’d give em hope
I’d make him smile
I’d keep him company
Just for a little awhile
Yo I’d mend his wounds and I’d free his soul
I’d call his fuckin’ man A pill-poppin’ ho
Yo I’d hit em back I’d break that fuckers nose
Cause nobody fucks with me no more
Yo I’d cut em down just like he did me
I wouldn’t offer the fuck no fuckin’ sympathy

Chorus 2:
And now my life’s better
And now that doesn’t matter
Cause I’m no longer battered
My boyfriends don’t get hit ever

Chorus 1:
And now my life’s better
And now that doesn’t matter
Cause I’m no longer battered
My daughter don’t get hit I wont let her

Chorus 2:
And now my life’s better
And now that doesn’t matter
Cause I’m no longer battered
My boyfriends don’t get hit ever
