Ten years have gone by and I love you still
this  pain inside is all too real.
I give you my heart, my soul
only for your disease to take control.

I work all day and through the night
take care of the kids, avoiding the fights.
When I arrive you are drunk and cold
shredding all the dreams we hold.

I cry, I pray, I shed the tears
putting on the smiles, hidding the fears.
You blame me, I blame you
when will this nightmare be through?

Standing bold along your side
my friendship, my happiness, my pride.
This drink has taken you from me
why can't you wake up, why can't you see.
