I can’t keep doing this,
I become afraid every time you open your mouth,
I can’t keep enduring this,
I shouldn’t be with you if I’m afraid of the words that come out of your mouth,
There’s no good reason to endure this.
I become afraid that you’ll raise your hand,
Your hands aren’t gentle hands,
I’m afraid of your hand,
I’m afraid that you’ll hurt me with your hands,
I should let go of your hand.
I’m longing for a gentle love that you’ll never give,
I’m longing for a gentle lover,
I’m leaving you for someone who’ll give me what you’ll never give,
I’m leaving you for a gentle lover,
You can go find someone else who’ll be satisfied with the kind of love that you’re willing to give.
