I tried to compare what I thought it was doing for me with what it actually did to me.
You took me to my highest
Because I was the shiest
I've shared my tears with you
When I thought my life was through
I reached out for your hand
When I did not understand
I told you my greatest fear
How I wanted to disappear

Alcohol was greatest friend
When I pushed everyone away
It made me feel so safe inside
When I was all alone
Alcohol was my greatest foe
When it made the monster return
I couldn't contain the demon in me
Then I lost all control

You pretended to listen
As you disguised your vision
You summoned the demon in me
But you wouldn't let me see
All the hurt that you created
So I thought the pain had faded
But you made me fear tomorrow
Until I drank away the sorrow

Alcohol was greatest friend
When I pushed everyone away
It made me feel so safe inside
When I was all alone
Alcohol was my greatest foe
When it made the monster return
I couldn't contain the demon in me
Then I lost all control

When I couldn't make the monster die
I stopped and wondered why
When I looked in the mirror
I seemed to forget my fear
I knew that beast wasn't me
So I set myself free
Now that monster is dead
And I found my own head

Alcohol was greatest friend
When I pushed everyone away
It made me feel so safe inside
When I was all alone
Alcohol was my greatest foe
When it made the monster return
I couldn't contain the demon in me
Then I lost all control
