Give Up Love.

I’m going to shout out a loud awakening
Told story straight from my heart
It’s a hard road to face
But with numbing of the pain
Consolved by the drink you love
The poison that stuffed everything up

It’s hard to fake that I care
But it’s the middle of the truth
It meets halfway in denial and how much I really care
But with half a scotch down and the sun setting
I can’t turn things around
It’s not too long now
When those hiccups stop and when I wake
To the vicious cycle of these ropes to jump
It’s time for me to give up

Screaming horrors from my voice box that hides
But the escaping behind from the heart
It’s those hidden away scars that really make me cry
The pain that used to be hidden away
Now re open wounds
Deep as cuts
Like from a slaughtery
But all I can hope for
That someday you’ll forgive me

It’s a tough luck life
One that hasn’t brought me anything worthy to lead
But when meeting you that brought me to the better half of who I am
But that damn bottle of scotch
It took you away and drowned my sorrorws as a man
You fed my heart and soul
But all was just a pile of crap now
That you’ve left
Walking forward right out of that door
You didn’t look back at me
Just your stagnant stare which burn’t the hole through my heart
It was what seperated us
It tore me apart

But now I’m just hoping to find a fresh start
A better place somewhere now
Without you, it’s been like living in hell
My scotch has drowned me for a while
But your love still lingers on
But there’s nothing that anyone can do now
I’m like a sad faced clown in a maze of shattered blues
Tears or a scraped knee haunt my dreams
But those tender dreams of you
They still visit when I’m in need
Nothing will wake me up
I’ve been blessed one
But I must be true
I’m still in love very much with you
But you’ve gone
And so now
There’s not much left to do
My life has been a drunken waste
But with all that said and done
My love will still live on
And while my weakness lurks around all those mysterious dark corners
My mind will still play those terible tricks
I was born into this world
Like a monkey born to swing
And now I’m a born drunk
Just ready to give up

Give Up Love.

Artist's Description

Written about many who endure this life, my ex was one of these, but that was over six years ago now. I can only hope they’ll realise what they’ve lost. There’s no going back with me, but they still have a life in which they can turn around with the support of professionals.
Good Luck to all, just know we care =)
