Bitter sweet thing,
Could this be a drink?
Or just the same nightmare that keeps me awake
Feel it in my brain,
Toss out of pain
Pour a little … now
For the love that we…

I feel it in the morning,
You’re still here in the morning
I see you, but you gonna telephone the doctor,
I’m not OK!
The bottom of the bottle
To fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof don’t change the truth
I tried it, but I can’t

Hook:
I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried gin,
I’ve tried all of the…
I can’t drink you away!
All these rocks I can’t swim out of this skin…
Oh baby they say
Now tell me, baby
… sip a heart drink
Uh, no, tell me baby, oh yeah
… sip a heart drink
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

Got the 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, babe
And now the only thing that sleeps here
Is a ghost to the inner state.

And I feel it in the morning,
You’re still here in the morning
I see you, but you gonna telephone the doctor
I’m not OK!
The bottom of the bottom
To fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof don’t change the truth
I doubt it, but I can’t

Hook:
I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried gin,
I’ve tried all of the…
I can’t drink you away!
All these rocks I can’t swim out of this skin…
Oh baby they say
Now tell me, baby
… sip a heart drink
Uh, no, tell me baby, oh yeah
… sip a heart drink
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

I can’t drink you, no I can’t drink you away, away
I can’t drink you, no I can’t drink you away, away
I can’t drink you, no I can’t drink you away, away
I can’t drink you, no I can’t drink you away, away, away

Oh, I can’t drink you, I can’t drink you away!

Hook: (x2)
I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried gin,
I’ve tried all of the…
I can’t drink you away!
All these rocks I can’t swim out of this skin…
Oh baby they say
Now tell me, baby
… sip a heart drink
Uh, no, tell me baby, oh yeah
… sip a heart drink
