I lost someone to alcohol,
With every sip,
Our bond lost grip,
To even hold hands.
When his hands was filled with bottles,
deep down my pain bottled.

I lost someone to alcohol,
I don't know why he drunk this monster,
He said it was like an energy drink,
But with every sip,
He couldn't think,
Or even remember his hurtful speech.

I lost someone to alcohol.
I envied the love he gave to this fluid,
When the relationship we had was hard to build,
All the resources diminished,
because alcohol demanded it.
Now with every sip
We drew closer to poverty.

I lost someone to alcohol
I wish we could have a connection
The same way he does during his drinking session
I miss the days he spoke to me while sober
But Now with every sip
Our conversation is over

I lost someone,
I lost love, i lost faith, I lost hope
I lost a father, I lost a brother
I lost a friend
I lost to alcohol that became their friend
