Lay Me Down To sleep

  Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
And if I die before I wake
I pry the Lord my soul to take

He grabs my arms
He grabs my leg
I scream
I shout
I cry
I beg

He drops me on the wooden floor
His rage continues
I don't want it no more

He kicks my body
I am in fright
He kics my body
More slapping tonight

I stumble over the kitchen drawers
I cannot take it no more
I grab a knife
I want to leave
Slashing my wrist
I am now at peace

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
And if I die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take

I took my life
That very night
With nothing but depression
And a butcher knife

I left the hurt
I left the pain
My blood splattered on the window pane
And now you know what he did to me
And he was supposed to be my daddy.
