Shattered Life
By Steve Cook

Everyone hears me but no ones around
As I scream and shout my empty bottle hit’s the ground
Been drunk for months trying to find
The answers of why you left me behind
The questions fill my head like the booze that I drink
As I open the bottle here’s to you I think
Hoping the next drink will ease my mind
They say every heartache heals with time
But who are they? Do they really know?
Have they traveled this road like a carnival show?
Or has it been many nights they lay alone
Hoping for the ring of the telephone
Wanting and needing to hear their voice
To hear the reasons they made that choice
For the loneliness that engulfs my broken soul
I guess I need some time alone
To pick up the pieces of my shattered life
So I sit here and drink as I caress the blade of a knife
Thinking my life is over with out you here
All these questions have my mind unclear
For me to end this pain what can I do
Sit here drunk and act like a fool
Or pick up the pieces and turn on the lights
And give up all these drunken nights
Go one living with you in my head
Or use the knife and end up dead
This is no cry for help by any means
It’s a lonely life with lots of dreams
So I'll put down the bottle and put down the knife
And pick up the pieces to rebuild my life
Your not worth it your love cost me to much to quick
Bye to the hangovers and feeling sick
