The Night Is Bleeding Lyrics

Everybody envied me as I
Walked down the aisle
Picture perfect wedded bliss
A pair of matching smiles

I never knew what kind of man he was
It took me by surprise
The day he grabbed me by the hair
And glared at me with reaper's eyes

Now the night is bleeding
The law protects a man who beats his wife
The night is bleeding
The law ignores a woman pleading for her life

Your paper handcuffs couldn't stop him
They never even slowed him down
I had to worry he'd be standing there
Every time I turned around

You believed him when he said I deserved it
You believed him when he spun his lies
You even nodded when he said he was so sorry
Your callus ears ignored my cries

Now the night is bleeding
The law protects a man who beats his wife
The night is bleeding
The law ignores a woman pleading for her life

Treat the symptom, ignore the disease
There's no such thing as an idle threat
We all know, we all know
Where it leads

Where were you when he said he was coming
Where were you when I said I was scared
Where were you when he kicked down the door
And where were you when he threw me down the stairs

Where were you
Where were you
The night is bleeding

You say you're here to serve and protect
But you ignore and reject my cries for help
The night is bleeding
The night is bleeding
