You Will Never Know

You will never know

What it feels like to be me

You will never know

What it felt like

growing up

with a mom that hated you

and a dad who wished you didn't exist

You will never know

What it was like growing up all alone

With a mom that wouldn't let you have any friends

With a dad who begged for reasons to hit you

You wil never know

How much I love you both

And how much it hurts

To know that you will never put your arms around me

and just hold me

and just say "I love you"

To know that I will never be able to put my arms around you

to just hold you

to just say "I love you"

You will never know

Till I am gone

No matter how hard I scream

You will never know how alone I am

Until I am no more
