Afraid to move
Did I want some thing to happen  
Did I think you would change  
Did I believe if I moved  
I would explode
I endured bullets, bombs, rockets,
M 80's shoved down my ears  
Until I was in tears  
Feared of  
fearless cares  
Nothing I could hear  
Because we were not a pair
Invisible ropes hung me day and night  
I could not fight
Drowning and unspeakable things A blind eye saw
Scars ripped me to the core
Did I think I would explode
If I walked away  
What would of happened if I left
I would be alone  
Someone else would give you a home  
I Can't move!  
Hand me your phone!  
I reached out my Arms  
I Surrender  
"My child
Here's your suit of armor
And your helmet
This too
I render
Your sword is place at feet  
I heard you when you gave in
I'm here to help you I'm your friend  
I finally moved  
And once I took my foot off the mine
The only thing exploded was you  
So what was I afraid of
why did I stay  
I wish someone told me
at that time  
that a controlling man
could feel like
you're standing on a mine.
