With one drink
You can't handle it
Another empty bottle, come tomorrow
You won't remember what you did

The past is in the past.
Hanging onto a memory is not gonna bring it back.
The people that surrond you,
They couldn't care less about you.
But there the ones that you love.
There the ones that you love.

I prefer not to use a chaser.
I like the burn to serve as an eraser.
Another empty bottle, come tomorrow
I will remember everything i've done.

The past is in the past.
Hanging onto a memory is not gonna bring it back.
The people that surrond you,
They couldn't care less about you.
But there the ones that you love.
There the ones that you love.

Oh were your eyes just free to see what they saw?
Or were your lips just free to say what they really want?
Do you even remember now what that was?
Do you remember?

With one drink
I can't handle this-
Another empty bottle, come tomorrow
I will be reminding you of what you did.

    General CommentThis song is about addiction, pure and simple. I love it's beautiful melody - stark in contrast to the songs brutal reality. In a word, brilliant. Stacy Clark is a rare talent.

    * This song would serve great as the theme song to the A&E show "Intervention".

    General CommentIt's about a dude who has a shady past and can't get over what he did, so he drowns his sorrows in alcohol.
