"It Drinks From Me" as written by Travis Dean Bailey, David Edison Bunton, Joshua Michael Childers and Eric Allan Koruschak....
Daddy toasts the mourning
Daddy toasts the night
Daddy can’t remember
More than getting by

Mama blacks the night out
Mama shakes and stares
Mama can’t remember
Just how they got there

It drinks from me
And I drink from you

Daddy’s more than gone now
Rode the trigger God knows where
Sad she can’t remember
‘Cause he was never there

And Mama drowns in whiskey
Tries to choke her shame
And sometimes she’ll remember
Sometimes it just rains

It drinks from me
And I drink from you

Love ain’t the bottom of the bottle
'Cause love is in the aftermath
But love is easier to swallow
Than giving up and looking back

Love ain’t the bottom of the bottle
'Cause love is in the aftermath
Love is easier to swallow
Than giving up and looking back

Love ain’t the bottom of the bottle
'Cause love is in the aftermath
But love is easier to swallow
Than giving up and looking back

Love ain’t the bottom of the bottle
'Cause love is in the aftermath
Love is easier to swallow
Than giving up and looking back

Love ain’t the bottom of the bottle
(It drinks from me)
'Cause love is in the aftermath
Love is easier to swallow
(And I’m through)
Than giving up and looking back

Love ain’t the bottom of the bottle
(It drinks from me)
'Cause love is in the aftermath
Love is easier to swallow
(And I’m through)
Than giving up and looking back

It drinks from me
And I’m through

    General CommentThis is song is written from the perspective of a kid who's parents drink... The first time I heard this song i was really close to tears because it's really sad how parents coming home and getting drunk can really affect their children's lives...
    "It drinks from me" is saying how it takes from the child's life....
