I was ten when the darkness loomed
Over my bed.
Scared for my life; for my life and breath.
Now I sing, this measured song to forget.
Silent for so long. Almost gone, I held my breath.

Surviving Tears
Surviving Tears
Gin, blades and fire
Surviving Tears

No more, I see the child, who cried
Who cried over my bed
Gave up truth, cause' it lied.
It lied.
There were times I wanted to die.
Tell this story. I had to try.
Dredging memories. I hate it.
But I survived!

Lost the love I need in me.
My skin scarred, no longer bleeds.
Gin, blades and fire
Surviving Tears
