It takes a uniquely fucked up man to break his own heart
And the right girl at the wrong time to make him do it
So if I am the guy and you're the girl and the time is now,
I'm as broke as any man could be

So take my cigarettes
(take my cigarettes)
Take my alcohol
(take my alcohol)
Take my heroin
(take my heroin)
Let me feel again
(feel again)

You were never my whole world
You're just one of many girls
Maybe I've had one too many

Lately I've been drinking at the wrecking yard
Falling down drunk with better men
While your conscience deals your sorry guilty head another blow
A drunkard takes it all in like a friend

So take my cigarettes
(take my cigarettes)
Take my alcohol
(take my alcohol)
Take my heroin
(take my heroin)
Let me bleed again
(bleed again)

You were never my whole world
You're just one of many girls
Maybe I've had one too many

Oh darling its no secret in this small town
The company you keep when the sandman calls
And while your new guy's reading cue cards to fill my old part
You're gonna kill him off when the raining starts to fall

So bring me cigarettes
(bring me cigarettes)
Bring me alcohol
(bring me alcohol)
bring me heroin
(bring me heroin)
Make me feel again
(feel again)

You were never my whole world
You're just one of many girls
Maybe I've had one too many
Oh maybe I've had one too many

    I love that line. It's so sly.
