"Can't Go Home" as written by and Hugo Peretti George Weiss....
They used to make an alcohol as lovely as you
But I ain't had that whiskey for years
It's funny all the things you miss
When you can't taste bitterness
When you can't taste nothing at all

It's gonna take the rest of my life
To get you out of my mind
I know the damage is done
I'm working on a new kind

Gonna learn when all the bars are open
'Cause I can hardly breathe when I'm alone
And I'm gonna drink away the memory
'Cause I know that I can't go home

Repetition takes the fun away from abusing substances
And we don't have much fun around here
Absolution comes in bottles
All these spirits aren't hard to swallow
But they make me walk in my sleep
No you can't trust nothing you see

It's gonna take the rest of my life
To get you out of my mind
I know the damage is done
I'm working on a new kind

Gonna learn when all the bars are open
'Cause I can hardly breathe when I'm alone
And I'm gonna drink away the memory
'Cause I know that I can't go home
