I am crushed by your harsh words your lies & your deceit

& by the anger you've shown me, I have no words left to speak

I am damaged by your vile actions your moods & your contempt

& by the hate that you've shown me, compromise, I won't even attempt


You attack me when I'm most weak

I have no strength to retaliate

Crushed, but still I stand in defiance

You'll never damage my conscious state


You attack me when I'm so blind

I have no strength to retaliate

Bruised, but still I stand in defiance

You'll never break my mental state


I am bruised by your cruel words, your sneers & your disdain

& by the pain that you've shown me, we will never be the same

I am broken by your foul actions, your smile & your fake tears

& by the sorrow you've shown me, this all adds to my waking fears

    I enjoyed Robot dancing to this, took me back to those days of .... ouch i'm not so nimble as i was then..... Look you've brought out the 'Marvin the paranoid android' in me.

    Take me to the service bay i need refreshment.

    Didn't listen but did read
    I can see it's been faved by a few so almost don't want to say this
    You are a fantastic writer
    I read this as is
    Then without the AND signs
    Not sure you needed them in this one
    Stunning both ways

    A very good song. Any new ones?

    The third stanza I connect with the most. It still stings when I’m reminded...but I’m also reminded that it is one of the many stings that has made me stronger and guided me to follow the path I am on! Pretty good so far!
    I’m happy these lyrics were recorded. I’ve been listening to the song all day long! I’m enjoying it . Thank you for sharing your talents!

    As always...
