Who Can Blame Her

They kept her home most every night.
She met a boy they didn’t like.
She mentioned love, they locked her away
One night she found the key and made her break.

Who can blame her
If she never turns around again
Leaving them to curse into the wind
No longer controlled by their command, she takes his hand.

He turned on the light and showed her around.
When he pulled her close she made no sound.
He saw it would take so long to erase
The years of madness that they made her face.

Who can blame her
If she never turns around again
Leaving them to curse into the wind
No longer controlled by their command, she takes his hand.

Killing her for so many years
And she thinks of so many reasons
Maybe it’s just crazy fear, maybe she should try again.
He holds her. . .he holds her
and says let love destroy the pain.

Who can blame her
If she never turns around again
Leaving them to curse into the wind
No longer controlled by their command, she takes his hand.
