I Just finished my drink



I just finished my drink
Walked out the door
A thousand times said
I can’t hear it anymore

Too many I’m sorries
Too many rough nights
It was too many lefts
It was too many rights

I feel battered and torn
On the inside and out
It was that kind of love
My tired soul can do without

How can I go on
With all of this shame
All of them telling me
I wasn’t to blame

It’s hard to go on
With nothing in hand
I’ll keep my head up
I’ll dare make a stand
