“Tonight I’m gonna hurt, everyone I love”…

He was far too selfish…
And was far too old…

To care about others…
If the truth were told…

After all this time…
After all these years…

Trying to please them…
And ease their fears…

But it was all one way…
It felt so fucking draining…

Despite best intentions…
He kept miss aiming…

His words would backfire…
Each and every day…

It left him feeling…
In a frustrated daze…

Until one dark night…
He sought distraction…

A sympathetic ear…
Or forbidden interaction…

And fuelled by alcohol…
Mixed with self-pity…

Seduced by the lights…
Of the perfect city…

Just a single look…
From a total stranger…

Laced with dark sin…
And fraught with danger…

Left him breathless…
Spinning out of control…

And in a hotel room…
The Devil took his soul…

As vodka lips collided…
He got lost at sea…

And his Lust filled eyes…
Simply could not see…

The damage he’d done…
The price he would pay…

The guilty secret he’d carry…
Until his dying day…
