Break Away
Copyright 2009 Jorie West

She looked into the mirror, touched the colors on her face
And reached down for the makeup that would cover every trace
Of the bruise upon her cheekbone from his heavy hand last night
She wondered what she'd done and if she'd ever, ever get it right
She closed her eyes, remembering the words her father said
So many years ago when he wished that she were dead
And she cried, cried, she cried

Sometimes he'd ignore her but mostly he was cruel
He beat her with a belt, he said because she broke the rules
The first chance that she got she packed her bags and ran away
And moved in with a stranger just to have a place to stay
But he used, and abused her, like her father had for years
And today it's hard to see through the swelling and the tears
When she cries, cries, she cries

Break away!  Go!  Break away
From the heavy hand of an angry man who'll never treat you like a lady
He'll break your heart, tear you apart
Leave you crying like a baby if you stay
Hey!  Hey!  Break away!

Lying on the counter she saw the butcher knife
And picked it up determined to end this hopeless life
But a baby's cry pierced through her thoughts
The knife fell on the floor
She realized that her baby girl deserved to have much more
She grew up believing (a lie) that her mama didn't care
She couldn't do that to her child
She could never leave her there
When she cried, she cried

Break away!  Go!  Break away
From the heavy hand of an angry man who'll never treat you like a lady
He'll break your heart, tear you apart
Leave you crying like a baby if you stay
Hey!  Hey!  Break away!

Yaweh!  Yaweh!  Yaweh! Yaweh!
Hey-ya hey hey-ya hey hey-ya
Yihowa, Tsisa Gesvhi Unelanvhi!
Hey-ya hey hey-ya hey hey-ya
Yihowa, Tsisa Gesvhi Unelanvhi!
Hey-ya hey hey-ya hey hey-ya
Yihowa, Tsisa Gesvhi Unelanvhi!
Hey-ya hey hey-ya hey hey-ya
Yihowa, Tsisa Gesvhi Unelanvhi!
