Does it matter

Does it matter if she doesn't know
I worked all week and paid the bills
The kids have clothes and school supplies
shouldn't I deserve a break?
Then again I made a promise
One I've made so many times
And one I've broke so many times
When does it hit the breaking point?
Ten days
Longer than most
Shorter than some
But back at day one
what does any of that matter?
I'll swear right now
Just like I have to her so many times 
that bottle will be the last
But I bought two.
