Without You

Without you I wouldn’t be the woman I became.

There is no longer anyone to tell me what to do.

Without you there is nobody to blame.

Finally I have to take responsibility for my life.

The bruises on my body have healed and I look fine.

Without you how could my black eyes shine?

The bruising in my heart remains true.

My pleas fell on deaf ears for without you there was nobody.

Now I can get on with my life for without you there is no crime.

There’s bruising all over, black and blue right through.

I tell everyone how I fell down the stairs.

Without you I get on with my life, not knowing when the internal pain will heal.

You always returned to me with a vengeance.

Each time I took you back not knowing any other way of life.

Without you I thought there was no life.

Now I see the reality of a new tomorrow.

Without you there is now renewed hope and a lot of light.
