I’m Taking Back My Life

Staring out the window
through the raindrops and my tears
i see my past go by me
as I travel through the years

I’m sitting on a greyhound
all I own is down below
The darkness hides my bruises
and my inner scars don’t show

I tell myself “it’s time”
I know just where I’m at
I tell myself “it’s time”
I know it’s time that….

It’s time that I took back my life
It’s mine..damn it…mine
It’s no one elses…it’s my life
It’s time…yes…it’s time
I’m taking back my life at last
Once again I will be me
I’m gonna find out who I was
It’s time that I was free

Married nearly fifteen years
with a dozen blackened eyes
More broken bones than I could count
Fixed by I love you….broken lies

I still don’t know just what I did
To have love shown this way
I buried myself deep inside
I hid my life I guess you’d say

I tell myself “it’s time”
I know just where I’m at
I tell myself “it’s time”
I know it’s time that….

It’s time that I took back my life
It’s mine..damn it…mine
It’s no one elses…it’s my life
It’s time…yes…it’s time
I’m taking back my life at last
Once again I will be me
I’m gonna find out who I was
It’s time that I was free

He doesn’t know just where I am
In fact, neither do I
And watching through the rain streaked glass
It’s easy now to cry

The nurses called the cops this time
Gave me money…and said run
He’ll spend the night in lockup
And you’ll be gone before the sun

I tell myself “it’s time”
I know just where I’m at
I tell myself “it’s time”
I know it’s time that….

It’s time that I took back my life
It’s mine..damn it…mine
It’s no one elses…it’s my life
It’s time…yes…it’s time
I’m taking back my life at last
Once again I will be me
I’m gonna find out who I was
It’s time that I was free

I have never had this feeling
Not in many many years
There’s a voice deep down inside
That’s been stifled by my fears

I’m taking back my life from you
I’m me and not your wife
I’m no longer your old punching bag
I’m taking back my life…
I’m taking back my life
I’m taking back my life
