Drown Your Sorrows

Drown Your Sorrows

When black is white

And white is black

I'll see clearly

With a bottle of Jack


When colour and beauty

My life does lack

I'll find the rainbow

In a bottle of Jack


Something lost

Can't get it back

I'll forget my loss

With a bottle of Jack


Can't fall asleep

When I hit the sack

But that canĀ  be fixed

With a bottle of Jack


Things might get better

In a million tomorrows

But for today

I'll drown my sorrows

I'll drown my sorrows in a bottle of Jack


Alcoholism

A dark road full of sorrow and regret. A disease and addiction, no different to any other drug. Be strong. You can make it through.

This was powerful and real. I am sure so many can relate to this. I really enjoyed it.

Really good. My brother struggled with alcoholism a while back so this got to me a bit. I liked it a lot.
