“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
