Unlovable love

As dawn breaks I wake up anew

I cannot live this life with you

I cannot live with bars of steel

Unlovable love pray set me free


My nights are cold, my soul it weeps

I cannot rest, I cannot sleep

You want me but I fear as prey

I cannot live my life this way


You will not love, you will not leave

You will not be the girl I need

I cannot stand these hurting blows

Unlovable love please let me go


You must know this cannot go on

My body bruised, my bones are numb

You split my lip and tore my clothes

You’ve locked and bolted all the doors


You see so much that isn’t there

Did that girl smile? Did that girl stare?

Do you know her? I’ll bet you do

Another night of Hell for you


Your smile is but a cold façade

My keeper or my prison guard

Too long I've waited, stayed and prayed

Unlovable love, I will escape…
