“I Do This Because I Love You”

Love is shown in many ways

A rose, a cuddle, a kiss

But never should someone say

“I love you” with their fists

.

Ignore the words he uses

‘Cause they just aren’t true

He doesn’t give you bruises

To tell you that he loves you

.

A broken jaw, a fractured skull

A busted rib, a shattered arm

Don’t say this was not his fault

Don’t say he meant no harm

.

He doesn’t beat you out of love

He doesn’t cut you ‘cause he cares

And it was not a loving shove

When he pushed you down the stairs

.

Don’t stay silent ‘cause you’re scared

Don’t think there’s no way to escape

Let others help, let your cries be heard

Before it gets too late
