Drinking By Myself

Recommended Posts

Here's a new reggae-rock tune I wrote:

Drinking by myself, it makes me feel so used.

But it numbs the pain, Lord; I’ve been abused.

All I want is to sing the blues.

Sometimes I can’t stop the thought,

That I’d be better off, better off,

Alone in the dark.

It’s here that I find myself,

Looking for a way out of this hell.

You know, a man can only take so much.

I think I’ve had enough.

Yeah I’ve done a little time, but I haven’t done a lot.

Life was going great, and then I got popped.

I rolled up my spliff, then got rolled up by the cops.

Busted with LSD, the first strike of three.

But I haven’t felt the pain without delight.

Just like the Vicks and fluorescent lights,

Empty bottles and forgotten nights.

I’m a sinner; I don’t know what’s right.

It’s here that I find myself,

Looking for a way out of this hell.

You know, a man can only take so much.

I think I’ve had enough.

Just give me one more hit.

And I feel it; I feel it take a hold over me.

Stand behind a horse too long, you might get kicked.
