Old ship, give me your hands.
Im the cape that came to crush and snag you on my sands.
Below the ocean, and from my point of view,
You were always drinking, and drunk well before noon,
And dreaming on my pillow of high tide.
But Id allow you.

Old friend, give me back my hands.
Im the crutch thats missing, and youre the crippled little lamb.
Those claws will get you; those teeth will take your life,
But you wont know whats missing.
This gift aint giving. This wolf aint worth the fight.

If you get lost,
If you get lost, you lose tonight.

    General CommentI pulled him in. I wanted him. Even though his drinking was starting to get in the way of my happiness, I still tried to look past it.

    The drinking didn't stop, and by this time, he wanted me too. I was the one holding him up, but I growing weary of him. I wanted him to let go of me now. How could I stay with him when I was getting nothing positive back in return? It wasn't worth my time trying to control his drinking.

    This is his last chance. If he gets drunk again, I'm gone for good.
