I close my eyes

Try to block it out

Hope to wake up

For it all to be a dream

I listen to the yelling

I hear the things being thrown

Hope that noone will get hurt

It hasnt happened yet

Its gonna happen soon

I close my eyes

Try to block it out

Hope to wake up

For it all to be a dream

I listen for the door slam

So that I know its safe

Its then that I sneak out of my room

To go to my special place

A place of innocence and happiness

A place of calm and peace

A place so different from my 'home'

The place I want to be

I close my eyes

Try to block it out

Hope to wake up

For it all to be a dream

Finally things are changing

We're moving

Away from him

Not exactly what I wanted

But better than it is

So I shut my mouth

And hide my tears

Go with it all

Feel so alone

I close my eyes

Try to block it out

Hope to wake up

For it all to be a dream

A simple reunion

To have a conversation

About me

Turns into an argument

I'm a possession

Not a human being

I run away

Away from them

Away from it all

I close my eyes

Try to block it out

Hope to wake up

For it all to be a dream

This time it is

A reenactment of the past

Playing over in my head

As I'm trying to sleep peacefully

So I let my tears flow

As I cry myself to sleep again

Only to be forced to wake up

Wake up to a reality

The reality of which haunts my dreams
