The Bottle and the Damage Done

The Bottle and the Damage Done
(Apologies to Neil Young)

I caught you knocking' at my workshop door
I love you, baby, can I have some more?
Ooh, ooh, the damage done
I hit the city and I lost my plan
I watched the bottle take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done
I sing the song because I love the man
I know that some of you don't understand
Alcohol to keep from running out
I've seen the bottle and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every drunk is like a setting' sun

And So It Begins……..Or Ends

And So It Begins……..Or Ends

I knew it was coming
I saw it, I felt it, I lived it and I caused it

I didn’t start out this way in my youth
I always looked for the positive
In every situation

Starting over is never easy
In anyone’s life
But I am there now

And I just have to accept
What I’ve done to myself
And everyone around me

It was not my intention
To harm anyone in any way
But I have done that

And I have to live with that…..

For the rest of my life……..
