I snuck in your bedroom
To steal some change for booze
But all I found were love notes
From another...boy

I need a drink
I hit the streets
I'm in a bar
Trying to kill myself

With Old Bushmills
And cheap red whine
Cause I know when I get home you won't be there
You won't be there
And if you are
All you're gonna do is lie to me

You can't change the world
And I won't try to change you
So it's just another bottle
Yeah, One more drink

In the station
In to see (?)
A huge black man...his eyes are full of love
I think of you
And is it any wonder
All our years have brought
Is a scent of pain

And I'm sure I could do without
You can't change the world
And I won't try to change you
So it's just another bottle
Yeah, that's all I'm having
One more drink

You make nice
And I'll play dumb
Walk on me
And ask me to come back
I guess I will
I'll be drunk again
When I hit the streets
So I don't have to wonder
Wonder where you are

It's a one more bottle
One more drink before I hit the streets
And I'll be sick and alone
Master of my own defeat

    General CommentI kind of see this one a bit differently. I think that he is just a normal guy who has a wife that is mean to him, treats him like trash and cheats on him, all of this going on for years, and all of this drives him to drinking. Everything he says after the first verse implies this is not the first time this has happened, he is used to her going out and cheating and he goes out drinking every time she does it. He knows when he gets home she won't be there, that she is going to lie about where she has been when she does come home. He knows he does not have the strength to change her or go on without her and the cycle just continues, just another night, just another bottle.
