You Don't Need The Booze

Mornings are quiet 
Uncomfortably so
But afternoon drinks
they start the show

By evening, 
the voice is bossy and loud
‘I love you girl; you make me proud’.

And later, the slurring, 
and uneven feet 
Next day, no memory, 
just rinse and repeat. 

Day one, two 
and even three
Each morning more quiet, 
self-defeat

I love you daddy 
but your hands they shake
I feel so sad
my heart it breaks. 

I hope my path 
can show you hope;
You don’t need the booze 
In order to cope,

You’re surrounded by love
So take off the mask,
Step into the light
In the sun we will bask.

I hope my path 
can show you hope;
You don’t need the booze 
In order to cope,

You don’t need the booze 
In order to cope
