I like the Guitar work. Can stand on its own as an Instrumental. Pretty good tune!

    - Steve Dafoe - Songwriter

Say Hello To Goodbye

I touched my face
looking in the mirror
I couldn't stop
the following of tears
Tired of makeup
to hide the abuse
I got every time
He came home drunk
I wasn't going to let him
have his way this time
I'd pack, tell him tonight
To say hello to goodbye

I went to the bedroom
where my child was asleep
I whispered while caressing
My little girls bruised cheek
"Dear God, she's only three.
What kind of life is this?
I'm not going to make her
hide her daddy's every hit."
I wasn't going to stand by
and watch my baby die
Tonight was the night
He'd say hello to goodbye

Midnight I was screaming
As my child ran down the hall
A man with an iron fist
Nothing was stopping him at all

He said, "No one disobeys me,
I'm the one that rules."
And it was in that moment
I knew what I had to do
I trembled in the corner
My child behind my back
Crying, "Mommy, it hurts,
I promise not to be bad."
I prayed 'God forgive me'
As I held up a forty-five
I looked him in the eye
And said, "Say hello to goodbye."
