SURVIVING CHILD ABUSE

Hello…Don’t Leave Me…

Music- it is the back drop of my life… I change a few words of the lyrics sometimes to fit.. but the majority of the words stay the same….

This is a song that fits into the silence of my space right now

Adele’s “Hello”

Hello, it’s me

I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet

To go over everything

They say that time’s supposed to heal ya

But I ain’t done much healing

Hello, can you hear me?

I’m in California dreaming about who we used to be

When we were younger and free

I’ve forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet

There’s such a difference between us

And a million miles

Hello from the other side

I must’ve called a thousand times

To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done

But when I call, you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside

At least I can say that I’ve tried

To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart

But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore

Lyrics continue below

Hello, how are you?

It’s so typical of me to talk about myself, I’m sorry

I hope that you’re well

Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happened?

It’s no secret that the both of us are running out of time

So hello from the other side

I must’ve called a thousand times

To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done

But when I call, you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside

At least I can say that I’ve tried

To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart

But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore

Oooooh, anymore

Oooooh, anymore

Oooooh, anymore

Anymore

Hello from the other side

I must’ve called a thousand times

To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done

But when I call, you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside

At least I can say that I’ve tried

To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart

But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore

A second song that is filling my silent spaces right now is the Winan’s “Don’t leave me”:

Verse 1:]

Somebody told me the other day

Your patience was wearing thin

I’ve heard you were slow to anger

But wouldn’t always strive with men

And I have to admit

You have asked me to quit time and time again

But this feels like the last time

Feels like I’m living in the last time

Kinda remind me how my Momma told me

“Boy, the stove is hot.”

It wasn’t that she didn’t want me to eat food

She didn’t want me to touch the pot

Now she had to reprimand with a backhand

But the message I finally got

Y’all, it feels like the last time

Feels like I’m living in the last time

[Chorus:]

Don’t leave me

I don’t deserve for you to stay

But don’t leave me

What I done, you shoulda been gone far away

Don’t leave me

Give me one more chance I pray

Living in the last time

Gotta have a made-up mind

Don’t leave me

Somebody called me the other week

Said, “Boy, you really got time

You know you’re young, go out have fun

Before you make up you mind.”

And I have to admit I have slipped from time-to-time

But this feels like the last time

Feels like I’m living in the last time

Kinda reminds me how my Daddy told me

“Boy, don’t move the car”

But when he went in the store

I put the pedal to the floor

Did what I wanted anyhow

Can you imagine, my friend, when he faced me again,

When he found out what I done

Y’all this feels like the last time

Feel like I’m living in the last time

Heaven knows how long its been

Don’t know where and I can’t say when

Sure would be nice to feel your spirit again

I must say since I been alone

I can’t face it on my own

That is why you hear my spirit groan

I can’t live without your spirit

God I need you near me Lord

Give me one more chance

Yeah, yeah

I can’t live without your Love

Give me one more chance

Oh Lord I can’t live without your spirit

You know I’ve got to be right near it

Just give me one more chance

And I’m crying…

If you ever left me, if you ever left me

If you ever left me, if you ever left me

Where would I be?

I couldn’t make it

I couldn’t take it

I’d cry all night long

You see, you see, the sun wouldn’t rise

Moon wouldn’t glow

Stars come out at night

Vegetation grow

Ohh, Don’t Leave me Lord

I couldn’t find my way home

I wouldn’t know what to do Lord

I wouldn’t want to get up out of my bed

You might as well bury me!

I wouldn’t want to live, wouldn’t want to live

Well, don’t leave me

Lord, don’t leave me

Credit for both songs goes to the writers and singers. I post the lyrics to say that I am inspired … to say that these songs fit into a space for me that speaks what I couldn’t.

Simply… Hello… don’t leave me .. God

Stay blessed y’all!
