Just Another Normal Night

Afraid to meet his steely glare The stench of alcohol fills the air Same old scenario, same old fight Just another normal night Seeing stars, fists are flying Make it stop, I hope I’m dying A punch in the back as I make for the door A kick to the stomach as I lay on the floor Lie down, play dead, and end the curse Only seemed to make things worse A thump to the head more to follow Sure he’ll regret it come tomorrow Waking sober, full of grief? I still live, so maybe relief To see though bruised I am fine A promise never again, well until next time He’ll be home again real soon Been out drinking since before noon Same old scenario, same old fight Please, please not another normal night
