The Pain Inside

Pain Inside

Dear god can you help me
Can you stop the pain inside?
Can you stop the pain that's killing me?
Please stop it or let me die.
I am tired of living this lonely life
I am tired of the guilt and lies,
I am tired of pretending that's its all okay
When I look in the mirror through these blood shot eyes.
I don't really know what happened
I don't know how it all went wrong,
I used to be so confident
I used to be so strong.
I would sneak little sips through out the day
Then the days turned into nights,
I would laugh and smile and joke a lot
But soon all I did was fight.
I hate my life but I just can't stop
It seems like drinking is my only friend,
Occasionally I'd have moments of clarity
But I would always start to drink again.
I don't understand why I just can't stop
Maybe I don't really want to quit,
Or maybe it's knowing I failed again
And its something I can't admit.
But I know one thing is certain
If I keep drinking I will surely die
So I ask you God please help me,
Relieve me of the pain inside.
