Well I had a lot to say last night—I’m sorry, did I say that to you?
Well I talk so much that I forget who I’m talking to
My mouth is like a sinking boat—I keep throwing words out, hoping I can keep afloat
But the more I try to dry out, the more I get soaked

Then I say I’m not as bad as I seem
But I used to be better, honey, can’t you see?
You, of all people, should know that this ain’t really me
And that’s gonna change how you feel about me baby, but it won’t change me
Yeah, that’s gonna change how you feel about me baby, but it won’t change me

Somebody found me on the floor—I must have passed out from the two nights before
If you don’t send my bright lights to bed I’ll quote God again
So don’t tell me that hell ain’t there, cause I feel it every moment when I climb the stairs
Tell me why can’t sleep all night? A drink should get me right.

And you didn’t mean to be mean
But everything sounds more meaningful when you scream
Well, if you really want to raise you voice to me,
That’s gonna change how I feel about you, buddy, but it won’t change me
Well, that’s gonna change how I feel about you, buddy, but it won’t change me

Well, you can write me up as just white trash
‘Cause honey I know it don’t take all that much to see that
Well, ‘Cause I swear that every hangover is gonna be my last
It looks like only whiskey’s gonna kick my ass and make me still come back

So, Jesus, guide me with your light—you can love me there with everlasting inside
But I’ve had thoughts about you that are gonna keep you up tonight
‘Cause being good is killing me inside—I don’t wanna go to bed on time tonight
That’s gonna change who I am, and honey that ain’t right

‘Cause then I’ll say, “It’s not all that bad”
If I can’t change who I am, I shouldn’t try so goddamn hard
Oh, I just keep telling myself, “I guess it ain’t eternity…”
Yeah, and that’s gonna change how you feel about me, Jesus, but it won’t change me
Yeah, and that’s gonna change how you feel about me, Jesus, but it won’t change me
Yeah, and that’s gonna change how you feel about me, baby, but it won’t change me
Yeah, that’s gonna change how you feel about me, baby, but it won’t change me
