Lyrics:
I was afraid you'd hit me if i'd spoken up I was
                                              Afraid of your physical strength I was afraid
                                               You'd hit below the belt I was afraid of your
                                             Sucker punch I was afraid of you reducing me
                                             I was afraid of your alocohol breath I was afraid
                                             Of your complete disregard for me I was afraid
                                              Of your temper I was afraid of handles being
                                             Flown off of I was afraid of holes being punched
                                               Into walls I was afraid of your testosterone

                                                  I have as much rage as you have
                                                   I have as much pain as you do
                                                  I've lived as much hell as you have
                                               And i've kept mine bubbling under for you

                                                     You were my best friend
                                                       You were my lover
                                                      You were my mentor
                                                      You were my brother
                                                      You were my partner
                                                      You were my teacher
                                             You were my very own sympathetic character

                                             I was afraid of verbal daggers I was afraid of the
                                             Calm before the storm I was afriad for my own
                                             Bones I was afraid of your seduction I was afraid
                                              Of your coersion I was afraid of your rejection
                                              I was afraid of your intimidation I was afraid of
                                            Your punishment I was afraid of your icy silences
                                             I was afraid of your volume I was afraid of your
                                              Manipulation I was afraid of your explosions

                                                  I have as much rage as you have
                                                   I have as much pain as you do
                                                  I've lived as much hell as you have
                                               And i've kept mine bubbling under for you

                                                        chorus * chorus
                                                      You were my keeper
                                                      You were my anchor
                                                       You were my family
                                                      You were my saviour
                                                     And therein lay the issue
                                                    And therein lay the problem
