Alcohol Intervention, Creative Writing

Updated on September 10, 2019

Alcohol Intervention is my set of song lyrics that can be sung to the same tune as Chris Rea’s classic, “Fool, If You Think It’s Over”.

Fool, If You Think it’s Over - Chris Rea

Cravings for alcohol, in this continual fall, keep you crawlin’ through your life...

Alcohol Intervention

Reverse Attack!


Losin’ game, you’re snagged again

No escape, and no one wins

Eyes stare off track,

Red, and sunken back

Those savage blues,

you drown in booze

Cravings for alcohol, in this continual fall

Keep you crawlin’ through your life


Friend, if you think its over,

and it’s time to die

Friend, if you think its over,

you’re trustin’ lies

You need some tough intervention

You can’t keep those monster-cravings back

Don’t be fooled by the Lyin’ Charmer

Reverse attack


Intervention is your weaponry

Stop playing dead while you’re still alive

You’re not yet lost, but higher runs the cost

As loved ones cry, and young hearts die


Friend, if you think its over,

and it’s time to die

Friend, if you think its over,

you’re trustin’ lies


No one can force your hands

or declare their demands

Stop you crawlin’ back each night

to drown your pain

But your loved ones will keep payin’

As they shake you while sayin’...


Friend, if you think its over,

and it’s time to die

Friend, if you think its over,

you‘re trustin’ lies

You need some tough intervention

You can’t keep those monster-cravings back

Don’t be be fooled by the Lyin’ Charmer

Reverse attack


You need some tough intervention

You can’t keep those monster-cravings back

Don’t be fooled by the Lyin’ Charmer

Reverse attack, yea


No one can force your hands

Or declare their demands

Stop you crawlin’ back each night

To drown your pain

        This is a great question! Yes, I have; they are Christian songs.

        Just curious, Tamara - You do such a good job writing lyrics for other songs. Have you ever written your own songs? Just wondering.

        Very true. It hurts the loved ones to watch someone doing this to himself.

        It is a hard habit to break, but a much better life when one does.

        Enjoyed the read.

        This was a creative approach to spreading this message. Many people struggle with alcoholism and this lets them know they are not alone.

        Really good poetry.

        Alcohol is the cause of all the social problems and it's should be moderated by the taker for it weakens the determination.
