"Bein' Drunk Is A Lot Like Loving You" as written by Donald Ewing Ii and Kenneth Chesney....
Well I drank till I stumbled,
I drank till I fell,
When the drunk part was over it hurt me like hell.
I know about drinkin',
So I know one things true,
Being drunk's a lot like loving you

'Cause I loved till I stumbled,
I loved till I fell,
When the loving was over it hurt me like hell.
Now I what a taste of the wrong love can do,
Being drunk's a lot like lovin' you

And I've woke up some mornings and sworn off the drink,
And, at that I've done reasonably, well I think.
But I haven't done well swearing off you and me
At that I've failed miserably.

Well I felt the hangover of loving all night.
I've sat at the bar all alone in a fight.
I've bottled up feelings, and poured them out too,
Being drunk's a lot like loving you.

And I've woke up some mornings and sworn off the drink,
And, at that I've done reasonably, well I think.
But I haven't done well swearing off you and me
At that I've failed miserably.

Well I drank till I stumbled,
I loved till I fell,
When the drunk part was over love hurt me like hell.
Now I know about drinkin' so I know one things true,
Being drunk's a lot like loving you.

Though I know what a taste of the wrong love can do,
Sometimes I still get drunk loving you.

    General CommentI think this song means a whole lot, its kind of like loving a girl that you know cant love you back, but she tries. SO it has its ups and downs, and you find yourself happier than ever, but then later when you are alone, and she is doing her thing, you feel "hung over" and down. I know, because I am there right now.... SHe isnt capible of loving me, but she tries... so I am hanging on, because "Sometimes, I get drunk loving her".... :( it sucks, I know.... but such is life.

    General CommentThis is BY FAR the BEST Kenny Chesney song. The lyrics make me cry. Reminds me of a love lost - and the way having someone on your mind like that can eat at you like a disease - just like alcholism. Kudos to whoever wrote this song!

    General CommentThis song means a lot to someone who's tried to love someone, but ended up hurting like hell when it was all over. Like getting drunk, the hangover hurts like hell. To me this song is like having a tough time in a relationship...knowing that it hurts just as much the morning after getting wasted as it does to let that person go.
