Last night I ran my car off the road
fell asleep behind the wheel
blood filled to the brim with thoughts of you
and the way I used to feel
cops they say I could have killed someone
but they're just preying on the fear
that someday you'll leave me be
so I can get out of here

just gimme a drink
gimme a drink
gimme a drink to see me clear

Eyes go hiding in the back of my head
they've seen it all before
bottled water and toothpaste in the back
and dried puke on the floor
family oh so proud of me
the black sheep with a bullseye
just pouring the arts right down my throat
since the day you said goodbye

just gimme a drink
gimme a drink
gimme a drink to see me clear

Someday they're gonna come looking for me
they're gonna hear what's in my head
gonna fly in from New York or LA
and they're gonna find me instead
scared old man who can't stand up
reciting Shakespeare in the bar
frayed white shirt right out of wardrobe
drinking one last free jar

just gimme a drink
gimme a drink
gimme a drink to see me clear

I held onto you as long as I could
they finally pulled my hands away
you never opened your eyes to say goodbye
never had that much to say
I wonder if you remember me
the way I remember you
can you forgive what I've become
and the things I do

just gimme a drink
gimme a drink
gimme a drink to see me clear
