I really don't know what I'm doing here
Just one drink
I think that you'll like them
And I promise in less than an hour we will honestly go
While you just say hello

Another glass in my hand
Moving up as I stand up
And the smiles are too bright
And my head's getting light
And I'm starting to sway
And they won't go away
Here I go again
Falling into strangers
And I'm staring like a child
And I take it on my knees
And I get transfixed
And I'm just looking at the floor
Yeah I look at the floor
And I'm starting to laugh
And I've got blood on my hands
And the first short retch
And I stagger over screaming
And I'm back on my back
And the colour and the music's too loud
So here I go

And I sing and I laugh
And I laugh and I laugh
Where this is
Why I'm keeping this going
Keep pouring it down
That's the way I feel inside
I can't take it anymore
This is it like I get
I just keep moving my mouth
I say I'm loving you to death
And all the smiles that I wear
And all the drinks that I mix
And all the faces that I make
And all the people I meet
Makes me sick to the heart

That's how I feel inside
