Perhaps I misunderstood exactly what you meant when you said exactly what you meant
But I knew it one time that you’d fight me your way from wrecking the shaky hands you have built
See I’ve been accused of being fall-down drunk
And fickle consistently
But I never laid a hand on you
And when I get home at least you’ve been crying for me

And she said tie on one tonight for me
Oh, tie one on tonight
Those words she said I’ll never forget
The night she stopped loving me

Well I looked down at my sliced up hands from twisting on those nontwist caps
And I looked back at my half-empty beer as five or ten seconds elapsed
I guess none of my friends, they wouldn’t look at me
Well, their eyes are set down on the floor
And I could feel the heat on my face as I stood and I shouted “one more!”

And she said tie on one tonight for me
Oh, tie one on tonight
Those words she said I’ll never, never forget
The night I stopped loving me
