Drinkin' again and thinkin' of when, when you loved me

I'm havin' a few and wishin' that you were here

 

Makin' the rounds, accepting a round from strangers

Bein' a fool just hopin' that you'll appear

 

Sure, I can borrow a smoke, maybe tell some joker a bad joke

But nobody laughs, they don't laugh at a broken heart

 

Oh, yeah, I'm drinkin' again, it's always the same

That same old story

After the kicks there's little old mixed-up me

Tryin' to lose a dream that used to be

 

Look at me, I'm drinkin' again, drinkin' all over town

Yeah, I'm drinkin' again
