In too deep


I can see it in his eyes all red and blood shot and dark,

He's been somewhere he promised me he'd never go again

Most days I feel like screaming at the top of my lungs

To try and get it through to him what he is doing to him self

 And is family. And I just get that bloody look. don’t care just give me money.

He acts like I know nothing about it but I know enough to know he is in far too deep.

I know what it has done to him and what it has done to us

You're no longer a real person, more like a puppet on a string.

  Every single move he make’s is controlled by the shit he takes

You think you have control but you don’t know matter what you do

They will always find away round to getting that fix.

In my mind, I hold a picture of how you used to be

The memories he can’t take away I still see that sweet-faced baby

And the toddler full of joy the charming little boy you used to be.

Where did it all go, wrong I tried so hard to bring you up the way I thought

Was right.  The road has not been easy but I’ve always lived in hope that my

boy would be back as he used to be. Through all the broken promises and the lies the stealing and the lies I no deep down I have a son who is wanting to come out

I no its hard but you must be there for them through thick and thin cause it

just takes that one special moment that will light a

spark and he will be back to that boy I used to no instead of the ghost he is today.
