How can relationships
be not what I expected
Or what they used to be?
When you got to ask to go out
or spend the night at a friend’s house.
You really think that your boyfriend
is just like your father.
How can you live,
where is your freedom.
You just got to wonder.
It is supposed to be equal.
Trust, love, care, and everything else
where is it?
You just got to wonder.
He/She just got complete control of your life
and you can't do nothing about it
besides beat the living crap out of him/her again.
What if you don't want to hurt him/her
because you love him/her way to much?
