Lets get back to basics
Please humour me
There’s beauty in simplicity 
And it could be just what we need 

A roof over our head 
Somewhere warm and dry
Enough little luxuries to get by
Enough money to have a comfortable life 

Why complicate this simple bliss 
Because of something that although we miss 
Isn’t good for us?
It’s something we can’t trust

Do we have a self destructive love? 
Or should we just appreciate our gifts?
Don’t we already have enough?
Even when things are really tough 
Booze is much tougher
And won’t give us love

Don’t let go, reach out we’re here, and we know it’s simply tough some days when you’re trying to stick to sober
