guilty secret

I don’t usually drink alone
a little glug at teatime
is enough when I’m at home
but sometimes grows as large as I feel small
temptation gets too much and that is all …

when I’ve got a guilty secret
in a bottle by my side
some lousy fool was drinking
and it must have been left behind
so today while nothing’s stirring
but the dark things in my mind
I’ll steal a nip from a guilty secret
in the bottle by my side

a little sip while no-one’s watching
and the dog is sleeping fast
another swig to knowing that
it’s not going to be the last
while ever the bottle’s sloshing
I still hear that devil’s call
and the temptation is too much and …
that
is all …
