Bitter sweet thing
Could this be a dream
Or just the same nightmare that keeps me awake?
Feel it in my brain
A tall shot of pain
Pour a little OUT now for the love that we've made

I feel it in the morning
You’re still here in the morning
I see you but you're gone
Telephone a doctor: I’m not okay
The bottom of the bottle
To fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof
Don’t change the truth
I dive in but I can’t

I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends
But I can’t drink you away
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in
Say

Now tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break, oh?
Tell me, baby, oh, yeah, now don't they make a medicine for heart break?

Got a pounding on my brain
So I drowned it away
When the sun comes up tomorrow you can find me doing the same
'Cause I just can’t forget
The way we turned out this bad/bed
And now the only thing that sleeps here is a ghost of you instead

And then I feel it in the morning
You’re still here in the morning
I see you but you're gone
Telephone a doctor: I’m not okay
Bottom of the bottle
To fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof
Don’t change the truth
I dive in but I can’t

I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends
But I can’t drink you away (no, I can't)
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in
Say

Tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break?
Oh, tell me, baby, one time, come on, don't they make a medicine for heart break?

Break it down

I can’t drink you No, I can’t drink you away, away
I can’t drink you I can’t drink you away, away
I can’t drink you I can’t drink you away, away
Oh, I can’t drink you No, I can’t drink you away, away

I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends
But I can’t drink you away
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in
Say

So tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break (don't they, don't they, tell me, baby)?
Oh, tell me baby, one time, don't they make a medicine for heart break, yeah?

Tell me, baby, can't they make a medicine for my heart break, heart break?
Tell me, baby, yeah, can't they make a medicine for my heart break?

'Cause I can't drink you away
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends
I can’t drink you away
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in
