Play it Forward

Jelly Fish

When thoughts of alcohol dance in your head
Play the tape forward and go to bed

Wake up ready to face the day refreshed 
Or at least feel ok

With no hellish hangover 
That’s such a good reason not to frown or
Start your day on a downer

And proper sleep 
You know 
When you’re dreaming deep
They should bottle that stuff

When we wake up we just don’t feel as rough
We still have problems sure
Probably more than one or two
Or even more 

There is something to be said
For playing it forward 
And going to bed
And waking up feeling like you
All from not caving to a drink
You know it makes you think!
