          "Drinking Alone"

It's hard to see you there
Like a knife, stabbing me deep
Antagonizing feelings within
Like restless, dreaming, sleep
And you speak to me in riddles
Cannot comprehend your mind
I'm kicking myself daily now
I feel so unalive!

It seems there's no way to stop this pain
Would it be easier to stop the rain?
I've tried all things and alcohol too
But drinking alone is a dangerous thing to do!

Sitting alone in sorrow
Seeking a shelter where I can hide
The voices trapped inside me
Say things to which I can't abide
But I notice that tomorrow
The sunshine seems so bright
I'll wait again for the strength
To face another lonely night

I face each day, and smell it sweet
And see the future at my feet
Do all the things that I want to
Is drinking alone a bad thing to do?
