Drown Your Sorrows

Updated on December 15, 2010

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 can  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


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.

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

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