Where Have I Been

Where Were You?
You ask
In a saddened voice

Do I even know?
Yes… well…
Here it goes

I went off on a binge again
The night before a haze
Honey please forgive me
I didn’t forget your play

Dad no more excuses
This one makes it four
I’m already used it
You’ve let me down before

It’s hard to face the truth
I’m a loser and a w****
The liquor is my pimp
He’s dealt me out once more

Nothing is the same
And I’m the only one to blame
I couldn’t give it up
And so they walked away


Not that I can blame them
There wasn’t much to leave
I’ve become a shadow
Of what I wish I could still be

Back then I would have been there
I wouldn’t be ashamed
I would have given her roses
Brightened her whole day

I would have sat beside my wife
Would have loved her right
Wouldn’t have hurt he like I did
Wouldn’t have been afraid

To stare my problem in the face
Then turn and walk away
