WISH I KNEW YOU WHEN I WAS YOUNG

WISH I KNEW YOU WHEN I WAS YOUNG

Looking back on those years...
Everything was fragmented.
Everything was made by nightmare.
I got a lot of questions to ask,
But there were no answers found.
My life was a missing puzzle.
Trying to solve it every day.
Through a maze game chased by a cat,
A little mouse is being played.
I had no time to play with friends.
Had no time to pick little flowers.
Had no time to fetch something cool.
For I was imprisoned to his abuse.
Nobody was there for me.
It was only me hearing my own scream.
Trapped in a secret room 
No one was there but a doll on my knees.
Such an abuse to see an old man kissing me.
I was young when he manipulated me.
Ten years still, chained on his arms
Waiting for a white horse to come around.
All grown up with fear in my head.
Still he got in to me and scared me to death.
I was about to kill my long torture
But there's a sudden bang on my twenty year old door.
A man in uniform from outdoor,
Saved me from fire I tasted so long.
Came in to me to calm my frightened tears.
The man who kidnapped me for years,
Took his life and jumped over the bridge.
He may get a peaceful life,
But his soul is burning in hell.
Wish I knew this savior when I was young.
He could have changed my fate forevermore.
I could live life like what others do.
Live life where no one abuses you.
Wish I could change things just like that
Forget the bad memories in the past.
Wish I knew this savior when I was young.
Things could have turned differently then and now
I'd like to see myself enjoy childhood memories
See myself enjoy with purity
