Nights of drugs and alcohol
Smashing my head up against the wall
Guilty as saint with one mistake
That's one more smile that I have to fake, yeah
I need this, yeah
I need this

Broken bottles
Unlit matches
And I'm drowning in sobriety
Won't you save me?

The thick smell of carbon dioxide
Awake to alarm bell wracked and red-eyed
Cursed by a thought of one mistake
That's one more heart that I have to break, yeah
I hate this, yeah
I hate this

Broken bottles
Unlit matches
And I'm drowning in sobriety
Won't you save me?

22 years and a bottle of gin
It's justified acceptance of an innocent sin
Being high never felt so good
In the empty spaces where she once stood
I miss this, yeah
I miss this

Broken bottles
Unlit matches
And I'm drowning in sobriety
Won't you save me?
