I'm OK- Christina Aguilera

 

I'm ok 
Once upon a time there was a girl 
In her early years she had to learn 
How to grow up living in a war that she called home 
Never knew just where to turn for shelter from the storm

It hurt me to see the pain across my mother’s face 
Every time my father’s fist would put her in her place 
Hearing all the yelling I would cry up in my room 
Hoping it would be over soon

Bruises fade father, but the pain remains the same 
And I still remember how you kept me so afraid 
Strength is my mother for all the love she gave 
And every morning that I wake 
I look back at yesterday 
And I’m OK

I often wonder why I carry all this guilt 
When it’s you that helped me put up all these walls I’ve built 
Shadows stir at night through a crack in the door 
The echo of a broken child screaming, please no more 
Daddy don’t you understand the damage you have done 
For you it’s just a memory, but for me it still lives on

Bruises fade father, but the pain remains the same 
And I still remember how you kept me so, so afraid 
Strength is my mother for all the love she gave 
Every morning that I wake 
I look back at yesterday

It’s not so easy to forget 
All the marks you left along her neck 
When I was thrown against cold stairs 
And everyday afraid to come home 
In fear of what I might see next

Bruises fade father, but the pain remains the same 
And I still remember how you kept me so afraid 
Strength is my mother for all the love you gave 
And every morning that I wake 
I look back at yesterday 
And I’m OK

I’m OK
