The Girl I Use To Be

Life has a way of taking
More from us than time
It Reaches out and robs us 
Of a love that we once knew
Day and years roll by
As silence filled the air
I remember reaching for you
But you weren’t there
I was lost and lonely
With only a bottle to keep me warm
Now Standing there before him
As he looked into my eyes
I knew he could see into
My cold heart and darkened soul
I realized in that moment
What the whiskey had taken from me
For the girl I use to be
He just couldn’t see there anymore
When trust was torn apart
Sometimes it never mends
Words can’t repair the damage
Wrongs cant be made right
Sorry  echoes forever
Somewhere in the night
Still longing in my heart
For the kids we use to be
When our love was all that matter
To you and me 
I  reached out for you 
All I could do is watch you leave
Lost and lonely
I turned to the only thing that comforts me  
And I knew in that moment
what the whiskey had taken from me
for the girl I use to be
I would never be anymore
