I wish I knew what toxic really meant To keep her far from harm. I wish I knew the words that were spewed Upon that dangerous farm. I wish I could have kept her safe From terrible words and deeds. I wish I could have tended to her; Taken care of all her needs. Now she sits in an office with a man Talking about her past. The one I should have protected her from I hope this is her last. I wish men would have stayed in her life Like they just couldn't in mine. My choices were her consequences Yet I failed to see the sign. I hope he can fix all the demons inside That I failed to protect her from. I hope she understands her worth someday And peace will finally come. I wish I had never moved here Thinking this would be so great. When I had my own demons to fight This wasn't my daughters fate. I wish I could take her pain away By holding her tight. I wish I could make all my decisions again Make this terrible journey right.
