That Bottle's Shame


I'm watching that bottle in shame

Crouched over in physical pain

I want it to eradicate what I feel

I swallow as much as I can

And suddenly all is ok

Its okay you two fell out of love

and that you broke my heart at a tender age

its okay if you leave and we go our separate ways

Because I'm numb to whatever comes next

Some may say I am dancing with the devil

And so I am; but I will never fall in love

I know his evil ways

I've been down that lonely path

I'm not as naive as you may think

I only let you believe I am weak

This is my game to hide my heart from you

So you can't see all the talent I possess

I can walk away just as fast as I came

And you'll be wishing I never left

You'll be calling out my name

Crouched over in emotional pain

And ill be laughing to myself thinking

Now who wants that bottles shame?
