She was confused and abused in this life
Emotional and violent moments
That seemed to take the longest time
Every single knockout, dragout, fight they ever had
Apologies and dignity denied
He starts to laugh
He starts to lie
With suddenly psychotic eyes.

Every night she cried herself to sleep she didn't recognize
Her own face in the mirror, black and blue,
So afraid, intimidated like a child, she hides away
He would always try to justify what wasn't true.

Justified black eye

Taken for granted she sleeps by the phone Waiting for a call from him
But it seems he's never coming home
14 beers later he is there without an answer
Once again she questions his lies
He goes to bed with no reply

Tomorrow morning different story
And he'll be a different guy
He'll justify her black eye with another lie.
She packs her bags in great temptation
He's on his knees, again he cries
A hug and a kiss and a don't know why
As a tear drops from her swollen eye
Apologies until tonight and another
'Justified' black eye
