Lorna

Lorna stepped into the light
Ten years to the day since the bars came down
Sweet breath, the air so clean
It was the finest day she thought she’d ever seen

He’d been a smooth talking boy, come in the August swell
She longed to own what he had to sell
Saw those eyes so filled with pain
And swore he’d never spend a lonely day again…still she pleads

Save me from this burning need to lick your wounds boy while you watch me bleed
Someone save me, please..

He laid down the law tried to set her straight
She never knew love could be so filled with hate
His words like bullets, his fists grew mean
She fired that gun at her chance for freedom, still she pleads…

Save me from this burning need to lick your wounds boy while you watch me bleed
C’mon save me from this burning need to lick your wounds boy while you watch me bleed

I know what it looks like from the outside
But you gotta figure something went wrong, long before that day
You don’t know what I was handed, don’t know where I’ve been
And you don’t know what it’s been like living in this skin

She walks with purpose now she never had
Sees straight through to both the good and bad
Her bags are heavy but her heart is light
Cause she’s finally learned how to treat herself right, no more pleas to..

Save me from this burning need, to lick your wounds boy while you watch me bleed
No more saving from this burning need to lick your wounds boy while you watch me bleed

Lorna stepped into the light…took a deep breath of freedom
