God bless the man who stumbles
God bless the man who falls
God bless the man who yields to temptation
God bless the woman who suffers
God bless the woman who weeps
God bless the children trying her patience

Trouble getting over it is what you’re in for
So pour yourself another
‘Cause it’ll take a steady pair of hands

Holy or unholy ghost
Well now I can’t tell
But either way you cut it
You should get some distance if you plan
To take a stand

God bless the house divided
God bless the weed in the wheat
God bless the lamp lit under a bushel

I discovered hell to be the poison in the well
So I tried to warn the others of the curse
But then my body turned on me
I dreamt that for eternity my family would burn
Then I awoke, with a wicked thirst
By my baby’s yellow bed I kissed her forehead
And rubbed her little tummy
And wondered if she’ll soon despise the smell
Of the booze on my breath, like her mom
Through a darkened mirror I have seen my own reflection
And it makes me want to be a better man
After another drink

God bless the man at the crossroads
God bless the woman who still can’t sleep
God bless the history that doesn’t repeat

    General CommentI think hes trying to come to terms with his alcoholism. He knows he wants to be better for his daughter but, isn't strong enough yet to stop drinking.

    "And wondered if she’ll soon despise the smell
    Of the booze on my breath, like her mom
    Through a darkened mirror I have seen my own reflection
    And it makes me want to be a better man
    After another drink."

    I think he has the desire to change but, his desire to drink is stronger. Sad, but so many times truly what people go through.
