Love Her

I met a girl who hated the world
She used her body to sell her soul
Every time they’d break her and pay
Tear out her heart and leave her in pain
I never found out how she survived
All of the sadness she kept inside
I never found out how she could lie
With a smile on her face and the scratches she’d hide

You could love her if you paid
You could have her every day
You could love her if you prayed
You could have her every way

Down on her knees, she wept on the floor
This hopeless life she wanted no more
Dead in her mind and cold to the bone
She opened her eyes and saw she was alone
She never found out how much I tried
All of the sadness she kept made me blind
She never found out how much I cried
The rope so tight on the night that she died

You could love her if you paid
You could have her every day
You could love her if you prayed
You could have her every way

I never found out how she survived
A life lived in lies is a life of denial
I never found out how she could lie
With a smile on her face and the darkness inside

You could love her if you paid
You could have her every day
You could love her if you prayed
You could have her every way
You could love her if you paid
You could have her every day
You could love her if you prayed
You could have her every way
