She set it up, I'm goin' down on the 16th floor
as we wait it gets a little awkward before
she asks my name and uses it right away
even though as strangers we were happily waiting for elevator lights to change

That was about 2 years 8 months ago
now she keeps her smile from people she doesn't know
And if you ask her for change or if you try to switch lanes
you better be thinkin' again

my girl's not actin' like a woman
My sugar's turned bitter-sweet
my baby cries herself to sleep at night.
I need to get some relief.

I'm always drinkin' about you
To bring me peace of mind.
I'm always drinkin' about you
All the time.

I had center ice tickets but she was hours late
I had to watch all alone as Vancouver beat the flames
And she starts to explain her excuses were lame
now it's back to being strangers
Like we're awkwardly waiting for elevator lights to change

I never told her how I felt before she boarded the plane
Like a message in a bottle I watched her float away
She used to wear her hair down every time I was around
Now we never kick it again

The bar had closed an hour ago
and that's when I tried to let you know
that you were always on my mind
but I was in and out of doubt
and I could not even get one word out
to tell you I wish we could turn back time.
Yea, I'm always...

I'm always drinkin' about you
To bring me peace of mind
I'm always drinkin' about you
No matter how hard I try
I'm always drinkin' about you
to drown the pain inside
I'm always drinkin' about you
All the time
