about

(Snyder/Roy/Savarino)

lyrics

Black and blue
Beat myself up
A few too many times

Regret and rue
By now he is used
To my abuse

Again
Know how it feels
Feel how it hurts

I suffer through
Limitation
Deprivation
And degradation

Don't you hold
Don't you hold hate
Don't you hold hate in your heart
Don't you hold
Don't you hold hate
Don't you hold hate in your heart

No no no no don't you hold
Don't you hold hate in your heart

Again
Feel how it feels
Feel how it hurts

Carry me through
This miscarriage

I suffer through
Limitation
Deprivation
And degradation
