Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Just a game.


This song reminds me of how I have always been afraid and sought safety in people, but got hurt more and more.

I have been a piece in too many narcissists/sociopaths games.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

  1. I don’t know where I am
    I don’t know this place
    Don’t recognize anybody
    Just the same old empty face
    See these people they lie, and I don’t know
    What to value anymore

    But there comes you to keep me safe from harm
    There comes you to take me in your arms
    Is it just a game?
    I don’t know
    Is it just a game?
    I don’t know

    Pleading eyes that break my heart
    So homesick and confused
    But I know I must play my part
    And tears I must conceal

    There comes you to keep me safe from harm
    There comes you to take me in your arms
    Is it just a game?
    I don’t know

    To keep you safe from my world
    Take my hand and my heart races
    The flames illuminate our faces
    And we’re on fire
    Blow a kiss to the crowd
    They’re our only hope now
    And now I know my place
    And now I know my place
    We’re all just pieces in their games

  2. A beautiful heartfelt and moving song. This is the very first time I have ever heard it!

    Defines the emotions one has when they are vulnerable and sore and sad and afraid of the pain that happens in almost every relationship we ever have.

    There have been times I have felt like this.

    I have an amazing book, called ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway’ – Susan Jeffers. Highly recommend it šŸ™‚ –

    A highlight –

    “The fear will never go away as long as I continue to grow. The only way to get rid of the fear of doing something is to go out and do it. The only way to feel better about myself is to go out . . . and do it. Not only am I going to experience fear whenever Iā€™m on unfamiliar territory, so is everyone else. Pushing through fear is less frightening than living with the underlying fear that comes from a feeling of helplessness.”

    • Thank you, I am glad you like the song too.

      It is a song that shows vulnerability, and fear and confusion and I connect deeply with the emotions of the piano music and the song/lyrics

      Thank you for the lyrics and adding them.

      • I absolutely agree! And you are welcome šŸ™‚ I could hear the words, though not quite as clearly as I would have liked and it always helps me to read as I am listening šŸ™‚

        Thanks so much for sharing, If it weren’t for you, I might not have ever come across it šŸ™‚
