Mr. Daniels, I Need a Chance

They say drinking kills the pain,
But I think thats a lie,
'Cause I drank every ounce of that pain I had inside.

Mr. Daniels help me for the night,
But I woke up to find,
A bigger mess then I intended,
And a lie I couldn't hide.

You held me on the edge for three long months,
Then told me we were just friend,
My heart sunk like a rock.

I had no one to comfort me.
I couldn't say your name.
So I took a few sips,
Til the pain just went away.

Mr. Daniels helped me for the night,
But I woke up to find,
A bigger mess then I intended,
And a lie I couldn't hide.

It wasn't long before we started talking again,
You knew he'd been over,
But I promised to be good,
You just took my word.

A few more days and I was feeling closer to you,
I knew that if I wanted more,
I had to tell the truth.

You said it was over,
You could not forgive,
And the only way you'd take me back,
Was when the world came to an end.

So let's say I drive off the road when I leave here tonight,
They find the levels in my blood just a little too high,
I was out of my mind,
And that was my last day alive.

Would you say I broke your trust again
'Cause I'd told you I quit.
Would you say i'm a cheater and tell all of our friends.
Or would you finally take me back again when you read the letter I had clenched in my hand

It said "I love you and I just needed one more chance."

Mr. Daniels please give me that chance...
