Coaxed into batting pretty eyes by the couple drinks I bought her.
I think she thought it was sweet all these years I'd still offer.
Now, innocent as two drinks may seem, there was someone watching over.
With one hand on his drink, the other hand helped to cover up his nervous face.

I laughed and said, "You've done well."
Me, I've been doing awful.
As if she couldn't tell by my shaking hands. I was barely breathing.
Then she said, "You'll always have a piece of me."



I stumbled home to find a new career that would help kill the hours.
I think I'm finding relief from the weight she put on me.
Those words sure crushed my chest.

"You've done well."
Me, I've been doing awful.
As if she couldn't tell by my shaking hands. I was barely breathing.
Then she said, "You'll always have a piece of me."

(Damn you for saying, "You'll always have a piece of me.")
