This is how I felt that day,
As I watched my parents drive away.
How little did I know,
What way my life would go.
Tears and pain,
Will forever remain
Lodged deep within my heart,
As it’s been from the start.
What sweet relief, alcohol became,
Erasing the memories that always came.
While lying there, in a strange bed,
The alcohol gone straight to my head,
That first day I went away,
Oh, oh, glorious day.
