An acoustic love song about trying to save someone from the deep waters of addiction. A cross of The Carpenters, Beck, and My Morning Jacket.


I'm the one who's supposed to take care of you
I stand up when the devil won't back down
I put everything on the line in the name of your sanity it was all for you but you destroy me when you say that I gave up on you
You refuse to see the truth
Guess I wasn't much to you

I wanna be an alcoholic
an alcoholic so we can be together
I can’t do this sober
My love gets in the way
I wanna lose myself so completely
drown in alcohol
who needs to be sober
I'll just be with you and throw my life away so we can be together

I thought I was helping; life guarding just pushed you away Your lies were like water turning us into decay
and you struggled and panicked to keep yourself from drowning but the water so deep
released our grip didn't want you to go
dragged rivers looking for you
except the things I can not change
and when to get out of the way


You turned your back on me
You’re pushing me away
when I came between you and the bottle
You turned your back on me
and left your family
when I came between you and the bottle

Getting High, an acoustic-distorted break up album about addiction. Country meets New Wave. ’Power Of Love’ and the yearning ’I Wanna Be An Alcoholic’ sets the tone, Euphoria – made completely from vocals – is about escape. Getting High, & Top Of The World, a classic Carpenters hit, close with hope and healing. ‘I Wanna Be An Alcoholic (Remix)’ is a tripped out mix, raps
by Notar & Doc Delay.
