im new...

does everything have to be about break ups? or can it just be about how fucked up love and life in general is?

either way...here's a lil diddy i wrote...

"childhood back"

Daddy left home when I was young
Though his beatings never were quite done
Momma worked late so I had food
She cried all night but I never understood…

Why did you leave me way back then?
What did I do? Just tell me when…
I didn’t mean to be so bad…
I just want my childhood back

Kids at school would point and stare
Always laughed at the clothes I would wear
Never had the money for some fancy clothes
The life I lived no one ever knows

Why did you tease me way back then?
What did I do? Just tell me when
I didn’t mean to be so poor
I just want my childhood back

Cold Christmas nights with no one home
Xmas lights show my lonely road
Momma’s working late, it’s the only way
In the darkness my childhood pays..

Why was I so cold way back then?
What did I do? Just tell me when
I didn’t mean to be so alone
I just want my childhood back

The girl back home I loved you so
No one ever told me that you would go
Alone I sit drinkin my last beer
Its getting watered down by my own tears

Why did you love way back then?
What did I do? Just tell me when
I didn’t mean to not be loved
I just want my childhood back

Looking back on a childhood lost
My cold calloused heart is the cost
Ive tried so long to hold back these tears
But nothing can stop my darkest fears

Why did I drink this world to an end?
What did I do? Just tell me when
I look at the bottom of an empty bottle
I just want my childhood back.
