My name is Sarah

My name is Sarah, I am …..

I am but three,
my eyes are swollen I cannot see.

I must be stupid, I must be bad,
what else could have made my daddy so mad?

I wish I were better, I wish I weren't ugly,
then maybe my Mommy would still want to hug me.

I can't speak at all, I can't do a wrong
or else I'm locked up all the day long.

When I awake I’m all alone
the house is dark, my folks aren't home.

When my Mommy does come, I'll try and be nice,
so maybe I'll get just one whipping tonight.

Don't make a sound! I just heard a car
my daddy is back from Charlie’s Bar.

I hear him curse my name he calls
I press myself against the wall.

I try and hide from his evil eyes

I'm so afraid now, I'm starting to cry.

He finds me weeping, he shouts ugly words,
he says its my fault that he suffers at work.

He slaps me and hits me and yells at me more,
I finally get free and I run for the door.

He's already locked it and I start to bawl,
he takes me and throws me against the hard wall.

I fall to the floor with my bones nearly broken,
and my daddy continues with more bad words spoken.

I’m sorry!” I scream but its now much too late
his face has been twisted into unimaginable hate.

The hurt and the pain again and again
oh please God, have mercy! oh please let it end!

And he finally stops and heads for the door,
while I lay there motionless, sprawled on the floor.

My name is Sarah and I am but three,
tonight, my daddy murdered me.



My name is Luka

My name is Luka
I live on the second floor
I live upstairs from you
Yes I think you've seen me before

If you hear something late at night
Some kind of trouble. some kind of fight
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was

I think it's because I'm clumsy
I try not to talk too loud
Maybe it's because I'm crazy
I try not to act too proud

They only hit until you cry
And after that you don't ask why
You just don't argue anymore
You just don't argue anymore
You just don't argue anymore

Yes I think I'm okay
I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that's what I'll say
And it's not your business anyway
I guess I'd like to be alone
With nothing broken, nothing thrown

Just don't ask me how I am
Just don't ask me how I am
Just don't ask me how I am



Black And Blue Lyrics
By Halijo Wester

I sit in silence, agony and pain,
I tried to show him how to love, not blame.
I run away, he grabs hold,
my arm is twisted, bent,
and I grow old and tired of all this weariness.
the hate not spoken, his past that I get,
his kind gestures all are tainted black,
I have to bounderise counter-attack.

Because I'm
black and blue.
This kind of love the tears burn thru.
Black and blue,
does my mirror image haunt you?
Oh!

His poison I am so addicted to.
his charms come with a price, a heavy due.
It leaves a hole deep within my soul.
I'll have to get away, maybe still be whole.

Black and blue.
This kind of love the tears burn thru.
Black and blue,
does my mirror image haunt you?
Oh!

I'll run away, far from this life,
nowhere to stay, the streets is where I lay,
for my children I will pray.

Cold and lonely, broke and tired,
too sick, too shamed, I'm scared
and a little wired.

Have to find a ticket to the moon.
Hey mister, give me a ride, pull a trick or two.
Oh date of wine, I'm not your find.
I'm a soul survivor, not your "ass" to grind.

Black and blue.
This kind of love the blood stains you.
Black and Blue.
Does my mirror image haunt you?
Oh!

[spoken...]
You say I can't leave yet, then pay for my time.
Just want to step outside, pretend I feel fine.

He grabs my hair, pulls my head down.
I am human hurting, not your your punching round.

Black and blue.
This kind of love the blood shames you.
Black and blue.
Does my mirror image haunt you?
Oh!

Confused and dazed, on the wrong track,
trippin' hard to find a way back.
Abused and scolded, soul so worn.
Desparate cries, inside wars.
Keep your dollars, find my sense,
broken dreams, peace of mind spent.
Standing sideways, need some sleep.
I'm black and blue.
Wounded soul, surviving soul, wounded soul,
surviving soul for me to keep.

Black and blue.
Black and blue.
When it's safe, I'll cry the tears to heal,
thru ............... black and blue.
*No more black and blue*
*No more black and blue*
Please,
*No more black and blue*
