Papa Loved To Love Me
Don't know, please, don't know, know, please
Don't know, know, please don't
I remember it all like it was yesterday
I remember praying
Jesus won't you come my way
I remember the liquor on his breath
His hand on my thigh
I couldn't scream
All I did was cry
I didn't know [?]
Why did God make me
Blaming it all on myself
When I could do nothing else

Papa loved to love me
Nobody tried to save me
Papa loved to love me
Now I am the one who's crazy
Papa loved to love me
Nobody tried to save me
Papa loved to love me
Now I am the one who's crazy

When I told mama
She went away that day
Something in her face
Something in her face
Will never be the same
I know she tried to save me
But soon I went crazy
[?] every night
Trying to keep the light, the light of my heaven
The light of my innocence, the light of my future
The light of my strength

I'm older now, not used and not bruised
Is my excuse
Why did I have to be strong to survive this abuse?

Papa loved to love me
Nobody tried to save me
(Nobody came around to save my soul)
Papa loved to love me
Now I am the one who's crazy
Papa loved to love me
Nobody tried to save me
Papa loved to love me
Now I am the one who's crazy
Somebody save my sould
Make me whole again
[Scatting]

Papa loved to love me
Nobody tried to save me
(Nobody came around to save my soul)
Papa loved to love me
Now I am the one who's crazy
Papa loved to love me
Nobody tried to save me
(Nobody came around to save my soul)
Papa loved to love me
Now I am the one who's crazy
Somebody come around and save my soul

Now I am free
