"Writing On The Wall (Alcohol)" as written by Shelly M Peiken, Marty Dodson and Barry Xandy....
I hope life brings you what you need
And I'm sorry that I couldn't keep you
Bet you never thought that I would leave you
In the cold like this
Too broke to fix
You promised but I don't believe you
Anymore

Took your picture off the shelf, don't wanna remember
I couldn't save you from yourself

I'm giving up on the way we've always been
I can't seem to get your sink to swim
You don't see the writing on the wall
Can't stand to watch you self-destruct
Throw away your magic and your luck
There wasn't room for three here after all
You and me and alcohol

What happened to the boy I knew?
Every now and then you know I miss you
Every now and then you know I still wish you were
Here with me
But honestly
You'll never even know the damage that you've done

We couldn't reach the other side
But at least I know I tried

I'm giving up on the way we've always been
I can't seem to get your sink to swim
You don't see the writing on the wall
Can't stand to watch you self-destruct
Throw away your magic and your luck
There wasn't room for three here after all
You and me and alcohol

So misunderstood
Well not everybody gets what's good
And maybe that's alright
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
I wanted to believe that it just might

I'm giving up on the way we've always been
I can't seem to get your sink to swim
You don't see the writing on the wall
Can't stand to watch you self-destruct
Throw away your magic and your luck
There wasn't room for three here after all
You and me and alcohol

    General CommentI just love this song, the best on the new record (One Girl Revolution).

    It talks about the alcoholism, a girl that tries to make her boyfriend to follow the right way since that his alcohol addiction is destroying his life and their relationship.

    General CommentI really love this song. I think the meaning's pretty clear, except I don't really know what she means when she says:

    "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    I wanted to believe that it just might
    It just might..."

    Does she mean she wanted it to make you stronger, or she wanted it to kill you?
