40oz

So I just downed another 40 of liquid compensation
and I’m finding myself in another bout of awkward situations.
I know this girl isn’t the one I’ve longed in my heart for
But that girl’s not here now so she’ll just be one more.
I don’t have a reputation in a bar so far gone,
But I do have a life that I’m throwing away…
Or so says my mom and her prolific brigade.
I woke up this morning in my fake lover’s bed.
My stomach was empty with my throbbing head.
We smoked a lot, drank a lot, danced a lot too,
but bay I don’t want her, I wanted you.
I promise the next time my ethics won’t lose.
I lost all my thoughts in the bottle again.
And this is the last time that will happen.
But please tell me baby just what I need.
It was only one night and I’m down on my knees.
I love you,
I hate this,
I want you to stay.
I I’ll get help,
I’ll fix me,
I need you today.
So here I am, 40 ounces in.
I’m all alone this time and guilty again.
I’ll never have you back standing by me.
You’ll never hear this song or see what I see.
I still love you dearly, I’ll never let go.
That girl’s coming over but she’s leaving alone.
She’s not what I want. She’s not who I see
That one night of fun, lost a lifetime of need.
So empty and lonely I sit here today.
Praying for chances I’ll never obtain.
I love you my baby, please come back to me.
You’re one more addiction, I’ll never cure.
But this healed me of nights alone in crowded bars
I’m sorry to mom and I’m sorry my love.
It’s only one night alone down in the slums.
I’ll never love her the way that I loved you.
Tomorrow’s a new day and I’m gonna have you.
She can’t kiss me and make my heart melt.
She won’t hold me the way that I need.
She isn’t quite you, and she never will be.
