"Blood Sweat and Beers" as written by and Mark Brundrett Colin Cunningham....
I had to have a drink today to stop my hand from shaking to keep my heart from breaking to stop these tears from running down my face, when i heard the news i knew that i have failed you, i wasn't there to save you and i let you down again.

so pass the bottle around make sure to hold it down cause it is the only warmth we'll find tonight in this whole damned town
that's what happens when we live our lives as strangers we hide from all our failures or will we ever learn

i had to have a drink today to stop my hands from shaking to keep my heart from breaking to stop these tears from running down my face, when i heard the news i knew that i have failed you, i wasn't there to save you and i let you down again

and isn't this ashamed we only found each other through greed, through loss and pain
and if it doesn't kill thus can we say it made us stronger, we lost a friend and brother or will we ever learn

i had to have a drink today to stop my hands from shaking to keep my heart from breaking to stop these tears from running down my face, when i heard the news i knew that i have failed you, i wasn't there to save you and i let you down again

i had to have a drink today to stop my hands from shaking to keep my heart from breaking to stop these tears from running down my face, when i heard the news i knew that i have failed you, i wasn't there to save you and i let you down again

i had to have a drink today to stop my hands from shaking to keep my heart from breaking cause i let you down again.

    General CommentI've no idea how to edit lyrics, but I think some of them are wrong here, like "and isn't this ashamed we only found each other through greed, through loss and pain
    and if it doesn't kill thus"

    I think it should be
    "and isn't this a shame we only found each other through grief, through loss and pain
    and if it doesn't kill us"

    Beautiful song though. Obviously speaks of a loss, likely suicide.
