The peaceful sound of humming
A touch so soft and pure
She doesn’t feel the pain
She’s lying on the floor

At last she’s got away from him
She knew one day she would
She would have done it sooner
if she only could

She’s lying with the Angels
away from all the pain
she no longer feels the punches
or passes out again

She doesn’t have to worry
when he comes home tonight
She’s lying with Angels
completely out of sight
