[Bm]    [Bm/A]    [Gmaj7]    [F#sus]    [2x]    
[Bm] Once [Bm/A]upon a tim[Gmaj7]e there was a [F#7sus]girl.       
[Bm] In her [Bm/A]early y[Gmaj7]ears she had to[F#7sus] learn       
[Bm] How to[Bm/A] grow up living in [Gmaj7]a war that she calle[F#7sus]d home       
[Bm] Never[Bm/A] knew just where to [Gmaj7]turn for shelter from[F#7sus] the storm
[Em] It hurt me to see the pain [Bm] across my mother's face
[Em] Everytime my father's fist would
[F#] Put her in her place
[G] Hearing all the yelling I woul[Bm]d cry up in my room
[G] Hoping it would be over [F#]soon...
[G] Bruises fade, father, but the [D]pain remains the same
[G] And I still remember how you [D]kept me so afraid
[G] Strength is my mother, for all the [D]love she gave
And ev'ry [A]morning that I wake, I look [Em]back at yesterday
And I'[Bm]m ok   [Bm/A]...      [Gmaj7]    [F#7sus]    

[Bm] I often[Bm/A] wonder [Gmaj7]why I carry all this[F#7sus] guilt,       
[Bm] When it's[Bm/A] you that helped [Gmaj7]me put up all these[F#7sus] walls I built
[Em] Shadows stir at night through a[Bm] crack in the door
[Em] The echo of a broken child[F#] screaming "please, no more"
[G] Daddy, don't you understand the da[Bm]mage you have done?
[G] For you it's just a memory, but for [F#]me it still lives on...
[G] Bruises fade father but the [D]pain remains the same
[G] And I still remember how you [D]kept me so afraid
[G] Strength is my mother for all the [D]love she gave
And ev'ry [A]morning that I wake, I look [Em]back at yesterday...


[C] It's not so e[G/B]asy to forg[Am]et   
[C] All the m[G/B]arks you left[Am] along her neck
[C] When I was thro[G/B]wn against cold sta[Am]irs   
[C] And ev'ry da[G/B]y afraid to c[Am]ome home,
In fear of, what I might [F#]see next...
[G] Bruises fade, father, but the [D]pain remains the same
[G] And I still remember how you [D]kept me so afraid
[G] Strength is my mother, for all the [D]love she gave
And ev'ry [A]morning that I wake, I look [Em]back at yesterday
And I'm [Bm]ok... [Bm/A]    [Gmaj7]    [F#7sus] Mm...       
I'm [Bm]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
Everytime 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 ev'ry 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 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 afraid
Strength is my mother for all the love she gave
And ev'ry 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 ev'ry day 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 she gave
And ev'ry morning that I wake, I look back at yesterday
And I'm ok... Mm...
I'm ok...
