  You punched and punched
You kicked and you kicked
You broke my arm
But you did not break my spirit

You battered me
You beat me
You just about killed me
All of this just with your two fist

You threw knives at me
You hit me with a bat
You hit me with beer bottles
You hit me with anything you could

You were suppost to be my dad
You were suppost to love me
Instead you just used your fists
I never understood why

I remember being in the hospital
I remember you threatening to kill me
I remember you letting your friends do stuff to me
You were always good with your fists weren't you?

Why did you do it?
Why did you hate me so?
How could you be so damn cruel
How could you do that to your own flesh in blood?

Now I don't have a damn thing to do with you
You no not exsist in my life
You can call me all you want
Your not getting what you want

Come near me with your fists again
I will protect myself this time
I am no longer a naive lil girl
I am a woman who knows it is not right what you do

Face the facts for once in your life
You need help and you need it now
You have already destroyed those who loved you
Do you want to destroy yourself even more?

Why couldn't you love me?
Why wasn't I good enough?
What did I do to deserve that?
Why am I still wondering?

You were my father
But I no longer think of you that way
I think you just helped my mom have me
I have a dad now who loves me and is there for me

You can never be that person
So just back out and leave me alone
Your fist no longer scare me
You no longer scare me

Your not worth being scared of
That is what your aim in life is
Is to scare anyone you can
Why are you like that?

Your fist bloodied me
Your fist broke me
Your fist bruised my body
Your fist will never do it again

You punched and punched
You kicked and you kicked
You broke my arm
But you did not break my spirit
