The Misery is Over        


With sadness in my heart I packed my things and left the place I love

To do what I thought was best, I threw in the towel when push came to shove.

He wanted so much more from me than I could give, and we called it love.

So, I had to put on a good show, but it never was enough.



But, the misery is over now.  How can it be I stayed so long?

Pretending he was the one who moved me like a love song?

Now I’m back in town, and I will not be kept down,

‘Cause the misery is over now.


With quiet oppression he held me down ‘til I could not breathe.

All the while proclaiming that he was the one who had set me free.

 “Free from what?”  I wanted to ask, but I held me peace.

Through the bars I watched as my life slowly slipped away from me.
