Liquid Courage

Rating: 5.0
I put the whiskey to my lips
because I’m sick of all of this
no more tears sadness and pain
I don’t want to think of you again

I went and loved you with all my heart
knew I’d stay right from the start
holding you in my arms so tight
nothing has ever felt so right

you spit venom into my eyes
every word spins a web of lies
falsehoods told to family and friends
now I can never trust you again

I never harmed you, I never strayed
my only thought was you day after day
I can’t imagine you not in my life
more bad dreams another sleepless night

part of me still wants us to go on
at the end of night comes a band new dawn
I’m nearly broken because of this
My soul is poisoned from your serpents kiss

when I walk out that door
that’s the end I’m gone, no more
I’m going walk right out of your life
no more heartache, pain and strife

I won’t let you hurt me again
my road of sufferings at an end
no more crying games at night
my head held high pointed toward the light

it’s the last you’ll see of me
like a bird I’ll fly and be free
I’ll make a brand new start in the world
The universe will open up and unfurl
