I Thought I Knew U

Its a long night, i had to work the late shift.
Calm and boring like any other nite.
You came in from your own work.
Bought a ticket and stepped aside.

Every night you do the same
Looking at me with that shy gaze
Suddenly u gave a smirk
I knew right then you weren't a jerk

Now I expected you every nite
Comming to see me
Making my nite very brite.
And you did every nite

Its busy then usual
Its the weeked so its usual
Here you come right on time
Buying your ticket and stepping aside

While u waited aside
rushing the customers out i tried
Finally u show up infront of me
Giving u my phone and address is what came from me

I couldn't waite
I had to call
When I did
U didn't answer at all

Your brother did
You were asleep
Poor thing
Hope u were thinking of me

One month later 
We've been dating quite a bit
I fell for u hard
Nothing seemed amissed

Two months later
Something felt odd
Had to get checked out
I was pregnant oh my god

But you did right
Like a man I expected you too
you got on one knee 
and asked me to marry you

Nine months of pregnancy
Here you still are
Trying to hold back tears
Oh you are definantly a dear

Here comes our pressious baby
Here it comes
You cry for joy
For now we have a little boy

He looks like u
but has my smile
He is so precious
our grinns turn to smiles

We get our own place
To raise our own
To be a family
In our own home

Everything was fine and happy
I was in lover's bliss
I felt it in our kiss
But then it ended just as quick

It ended quick
Oh god i was so blind
Something i must've missed
When along came that first hit

Your smile hardly shows
Your anger begins to grow
Im getting scared even more
The love you had is never more

Your anger turns to hate
Your hate turns to hits
Im so damn scared
Im not liking this one bit

I feard for our son
The one I thought you loved
Oh you still love him
But no longer love me

Im black and blue
Cause all the hitting 
And strangling from you
I knew what i had to do

I had to go
I had to leave
The love is no more
I had to go on my own

I thought I knew you
I thought I did
I thought I found love
I almost thanked the heavens above

You're true colors showed
Now you live on your own
My heart is hurt
Cause all this time you were a jerk
