lyrics

Verse 1:
Could you even understand
What it’s like to be used at hand
By so many men
I had so much trust in you
To have you turn around
And sell me to pay your dues


Chorus:
So why was I
I not good enough
And how was I
So damn foolish


Verse 2:
Could you even understand
And have you gone and washed your hands
I’m sure you have
And now I hold my head
Above a spirit dead


Chorus:
So why was I
I not good enough
And how was I
So damn foolish
And where was love
When you sold me away
And where was hope
When I’m raped every day


Verse 3:
I’m not the same girl
Not the same girl
Could never be the same girl
In that bright blue world
And if you had to choose again
Would you keep me then
I bet you wouldn’t
And would you even know my voice
Would you know my face
Withered and stressed to age
Well I fought, and I screamed, and I ran
And I bruised, and I bled
And I felt an evil so cold instead



Chorus:
So why was I
I not good enough
And how was I
So damn foolish
And where was love
When you sold me away
And where was hope
When I’m raped every day


Outrro:
So close your eyes
And just hide from the pain
And breathe a sigh
Let your thoughts drift away

Away…
