SONGWRITING

2nd Double

By: Laura Alford 

Home alone with my struggles
No bathtub, no bubbles
No Champagne, no Chablis.
Need to purge all my troubles
Gonna pour out a double
It’s scotch on the rocks for me

Drinking at home
Drinking all alone
Don’t want nobody to see
How this pain in my soul
Is out of control
It’s done gone and wrecked me.

I start courting trouble
With that second double
Because I’m feeling free.
Tired of the struggle
Let’s be agreeable,
Pour another scotch on the rocks for me.

I’m drinking at home,
Drinking all alone,
Don’t want nobody to see
How this pain in my soul
Is out of control
It’s gone and done wrecked me.

Going for that triple double
It’s nothing but trouble
Your broken promise sets me free
Less than half a bottle
On tap for tomorrow
A hangover guaranteed

Drinking at home,
Drinking all alone
Don’t want the third degree
I know this pain in my soul
Is out of control
I’m wrecked– let me be.
