Talk to Me

Verse 1:
Who knows when things began to crumble
What I did or didn’t do goes through my mind
I can’t remember when the drinking started
Or the places that I left her on her own...
All alone

Chorus:
She said.....talk to me
There’s need for change
But her words rang hollow in my head
Those words she’d said
With pain..…once again
But things always seem to stay the same

Verse two:
Who knows why a man can have such courage
Strength coming from Jack Daniels shots
He feels no need or worry about others
As he sits there pours another, getting ever drunker
All alone

Chorus:
She said.... talk to me
There’s need for change
But her words rang hollow in my head
Those words she’d said
With pain….once again
But things always seem to stay the same

Verse 3:
Who knows where this story will be ending
If the bottom of a bottle can’t be found
When you’ve lost all that really matters
And you find yourself crying and hell bound....
All alone

Chorus
She said.....talk to me
There’s need for change
But her words rang hollow in my head
Those words she’d said
With pain…..over again
But things always seem to stay the same

Bridge-
There was a time two lives really mattered
Two hearts so connected beat as one
To a tune of love not known by many others
Till the walls of what we had came tumbling down

Chorus:
She said.....talk to me
there’s need for change.......

Hi Craig,
Rough subject, well done. This is usually the story, and the ending usually the same.

The last verse in the piece is what is known in the field as "hitting bottom". And can apply to other things besides only excessive drinking. That's when you reach the point when you may wonder why you even got out of bed. Perhaps I'll come up with one with that theme. Felt very fortunate that I never developed a huge taste for drinking-- only a beer every now and then. For another powerful piece on this subject, check out Lucinda Williams' "Drunken Angel".
