“GIVING UP
Holly Williams

17 years with a wedding ring
The saddest damn story you ever seen
2 little kids and a good hearted man
Trying to save her if they can

I tried myself, I cried with her
I held her hand, we talked to the Lord
But we’re only human and we can’t change
Somebody’s will to leave their ways

The doctor said you’d die
If you had another drink
Well I wonder if it scares you, I wonder if you think
About the daughter that you’re leaving, the man you used to love
And the son that cries for you, oh yes that child that cries for you
Well I guess this is it, you must be giving up

You put us all through a living hell
A thousand excuses for your liquor trail
But my compassion is fading fast
Another rehab and you break another glass

Bottles in dryers, bottles in shoes
There were even bottles in the baby’s room
You’re losing everything that you ever had
Your life is one thing all that money can’t buy back

The doctor said you’d die
If you had another drink
Well I wonder if it scares you, I wonder if you think
About the daughter that you’re leaving, the man you used to love
And the son that cries for you, oh yes that child that cries for you
Well I guess this is it, you must be giving up

17 years with a wedding ring
The saddest damn story you ever seen
2 little kids and a good hearted man
Trying to save her if they can
