A Way Out

By: Autumn J McBride

My daddy drinks his problems away
He drink away his fears
Mommy says we mustn't stay
and then bursts into tears

My daddy drinks his life away
He drinks away his dreams
Mommy says just one more day...
And fills our hearts with screams

My daddy drinks my hopes away
He drinks away my laughter
Mommy says we must go away
To live happily ever after.
