Everytime I end up waking up in some hotel without my set of keys,
Coming to, remembering the way you turned me out when I was on my
Knees.
You think that was one up for you,
But I know I scored something too.
When I see the way you have to struggle just to do a little simple
Thing,
Feel apologetic just because I'm not particularly suffering,
So I let you take me down,
I'm like your rent-a-clown.
When I saw my baby cry,
Knew that he loved me.
That was some great victory,
He cried because of me.
He hit me with his belt,
But his fears were all I felt.
When I saw my baby cry,
I knew he loved me.
When you try to cut me down and push me back if I attack your
Attitude,
I rise up to the challenge 'cause I like to taste the sugar of your
Violent mood.
Just like a stormy sea,
You're natural poetry to me.
When I saw my baby cry,
I knew that he loved me.
When I saw my baby cry,
I knew that he loved me.
That was some great victory.
He cried because of me.
He hit me with his belt,
But his fears were all I felt.
When I saw my baby cry,
I knew he loved me.
I knew he loved me.

On these lyrics.
I should have saved the posts from the lists, but it was mentioned that
This song is autobiographical, and 977 is the room number
Where the incident ocurred.
