Drinkin' Remorse On The Rocks
 
Lyrics
VERSE
We had it all; we were feasting on love; every day she took my breath away
But lovin' her was not enough, so now I'm here paralyzed with fear
How could I have been such a fool to fall in lust with her best friend
I broke her heart when I broke the only rule she ever asked me to believe in

CHORUS
Now I'm drinkin' remorse on the rocks in a rundown bar
Thinkin' about lettin' her get away
Drinkin' remorse on the rocks, sleepin' in my car
Self-imposed hell to pay

SOLO

VERSE
There's nothing to say to ease the way; no excuses, none of that
She was a love you don't find every day; I'm as dumb as a football bat
Every time I call, I hit a brick wall; she doesn't want any more of me
As any fool can see, it was just the truth that set me free

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Now while she's changin' all the locks
I'm drinkin' straight remorse on the rocks
Yes, I'm drinkin' it straight
Oh, I'm drinkin' remorse on the rocks
