When I was smaller
you used to hit me, yell and scream
curse, break and throw things
downgrading me, calling me names
building me up just to be knocked down again
It was normal life for me
I used to dream I was far away
with my knight in shining armor
Now everyone laughs at me
Calls me "stupid" and "naive"
Because I love my "knight"
A man who acts the same 
But I still love him just as I love you
And it hurts, but to me it feels right
almost like I am home again.
