[Intro](play twice):
Bm  Bm/A  Gmaj7  F#sus

[Verse 1]
Bm      Bm/A      Gmaj7         F#7sus
   Once upon a time there was a girl.
Bm         Bm/A   Gmaj7          F#7sus
   In her early years she had to learn
Bm        Bm/A               Gmaj7               F#7sus
   How to grow up living in a war that she called home
Bm       Bm/A                Gamj7                F#7sus
   Never knew just where to turn for shelter from the storm
Em                            Bm
   It hurt me to see the pain   across my mother's face
Em
   Everytime my father's fist would
F#
   Put her in her place
G                                  Bm
   Hearing all the yelling I would cry up in my room
G                          F#
   Hoping it would be over soon...

[Chorus 1]
G                                D
   Bruises fade, father, but the pain remains the same
G                               D
   And I still remember how you kept me so afraid
G                                     D
   Strength is my mother, for all the love she gave
          A                           Em
And ev'ry morning that I wake, I look back at yesterday
         Bm   Bm/A  Gmaj7  F#7sus
And I'm ok...

[Verse 2]
Bm         Bm/A    Gmaj7               F#7sus
   I often wonder why I carry all this guilt,
Bm          Bm/A             Gamj7              F#7sus
   When it's you that helped me put up all these walls I built
Em                                 Bm
   Shadows stir at night through a crack in the door
Em                           F#
   The echo of a broken child screaming "please, no more"
G                                  Bm
   Daddy, don't you understand the damage you have done?
G                                      F#
   For you it's just a memory, but for me it still lives on...

[Chorus 2]
G                             D
  Bruises fade father but the pain remains the same
G                              D
  And I still remember how you kept me so afraid
G                                   D
  Strength is my mother for all the love she gave
          A                           Em
And ev'ry morning that I wake, I look back at yesterday...

[Bridge]
C              G/B        Am
  It's not so easy to forget
C          G/B          Am
  All the marks you left along her neck
C                G/B                Am
  When I was thrown against cold stairs
C             G/B          Am
  And ev'ry day afraid to come home,
                         F#
In fear of, what I might see next...

[Chorus 1]
G                                D
   Bruises fade, father, but the pain remains the same
G                               D
   And I still remember how you kept me so afraid
G                                     D
   Strength is my mother, for all the love she gave
          A                           Em
And ev'ry morning that I wake, I look back at yesterday
         Bm    Bm/A   Gmaj7   F#7sus
And I'm ok...                 Mm...
    Bm
I'm ok...

THE END
Enjoy!

This song hits really close to home for me, and I almost started crying when I played it. Thank you for posting this, you did a good job.
