"Bitters & Absolut" as written by and Bryan Devendorf Scott Devendorf....
Sweetie, you don't look so good
Your bottom lip is bleeding
I cut it on your collarbone
Go on, go back to sleep

Sugar, who were you thinking of?
You woke me with your breathing
Honey, how am I supposed to tell?

If I were a spy in the world inside your head
Would I be your wife in a better life you led?

Thought I saw you on the stairs
Of this american century
I went up through all the years
You were years ahead of me
Remember when you dipped your hand?
I never saw it coming
You took the wind out of me

If I were a spy in the world inside your head
Would I be your wife in the better life you led?

I'd do you better than you do
I'd do you better than you ever will
When I am on bitters and absolut

If I were a spy in the world inside your head
Would I be your wife in a better life you led?

I'd do you better than you do
I'd do you better than you ever will

When I am on bitters and absolut

    General CommentThe thoughts of a woman staring at her husband in the middle of the night. She knows he cheats on her. He's dipped his hands in other waters. It's only a matter of time before he leaves her, off to seek something better as men age better than women in the middle years. She knows that if she were in the position of power in the relationship, she'd never do this to him.
