Hiding the pain

He hurts you constantly
And all you can do is think of him
You can’t get him off your mind
The bruises on your fragile body
Remind you only of the pain
But you fell head over heals it’s insane
His caring side the only thing you see in his eyes
Your friends don’t understand why you’re with the guy
Hiding the pain you show him love
While all your friends pray to up above
Will he take it to far
Will you even notice
The pain he puts you through
The bruises on your arm
Oh they are so deep and blue
The tears in your eyes represent the hurt
Build yourself strong make you more reassert
Hiding the pain isn’t worth the time
What he does honey it’s called a crime.
