Elle Sinclair Music
The good and bad cycles of abuse are confusing to the heart. Updated official video for "Again", the first song on my new album "Gilded Cage". **No triggering imagery** Subscribe to Elle Sinclair on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/ElleSinclairMusic/?sub_confirmation=1 💗 Connect with me here: https://www.ellesinclairmusic.com Stream full "Gilded Cage" album: Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/4PYe6eSOdLj3uK6o048ahn Apple Music: https://music.apple.com/us/artist/elle-sinclair/1525337604 Amazon Music: https://music.amazon.com/artists/B08DTLKSNY/elle-sinclair?tab=CATALOG&ref=dm_wcp_artist_link_pr_s -------------------------------------- This song is written from the perspective of a female in an abusive relationship, because that was my experience.

For help, contact the Domestic Abuse Hotline at 1−800−799−7233 or visit https://www.thehotline.org/ --------------------------------------- LYRICS I’m so confused A few hours ago he was saying, “I love you” On a date by the lake in the sunshine We laughed and dreamed, Having a good time I dared to wonder Could the dark days finally be over? But then it rained As suddenly, it all came crashing down, again My world is falling apart again Dreams lay shattered at my feet My chest aches and it’s hard to breathe I cry until I feel sick again The cycle circles, never ends Life is only good til it’s bad again A simple disagreement escalates unexpectedly He’s screaming profanities And towering close over me My whole body tenses as his rage fills the air He never fights fair I lock myself in the bedroom, Headphones turned up loud To drown out his pounding on the door, It’s a scary sound I wish that I could say This was the first time or the last But it’s here we go again I wait for days For him to own the hurtful choices That he made All I get is a one line “I’m sorry” Before the blame is switched back on me How will he change When he won’t ever even take the blame? I’m losing faith I hate that it keeps crashing down, again If he won’t stop hurting me Maybe it’s time I should leave Before it comes round again If he won’t stop hurting me Maybe it’s time to be free Spread my wings into the sky --------------------------------------- #originalsong​ #signsofabuse​ #femaleempowerment​

I’m crying out, reaching out I need someone to understand I’m crying out, reaching out Show me how to break free I’m crying out, reaching out Can anyone hear my silent scream? --------------------------------------- #originalsong #toxicrelationship #femaleempowerment

Will I ever be free? This isn’t how I thought my life would be Afraid I’ll never leave this cage That I’ll never be free This isn’t how I want my life to be --------------------------------------- #originalsong #toxicrelationship #femaleempowerment

How could you do this? How dark is your mind? Drop by drop Brainwashing me Twisting situations To crack my sanity Mind games prodding me Driving me crazy Master manipulator Crystal clear I see it now But your lies still pull me down I need time and space To break the spell You’ve cast over me I’ll trade truth for lie Go from dark to light I’ll undo all that you’ve done Til I’ve reclaimed Every piece of me And finally am free --------------------------------------- #originalsong #toxicrelationship #femaleempowerment

So much of the journey of getting out of abuse

is getting an inner conviction

that what you are experiencing is wrong

& that you should be treated better.

That conviction gives you the strength

to break out of the cage.
