I was fourteen years old when I took my first breath
That whiskey and that heroin helped me grow my new skin
Was it the feeling or the taste that helped me come back again?
Or the cold embrace of those that counted my sins
I was intrigued by the flame as it burned my hand, but I lit it again
Sit down and meet my friend trouble and meet my friend pain
Woke up next to a girl and I only knew the bottles name
So I lit up a smoke and convinced myself I was sane
But you can’t get too far when you keep hoppin’ on the same train
Just cause’ I was feeling good don’t mean I was feeling right
Well you’re not a badass when you’re all alone
Does the heart still break when no one hears it fall?
Could this be it could I have seen it all?
Same thing you left with is what brought you home
Bartender said, come on Sam join us at the end of the bar
Said just fill me to the brim and I’ll enjoy my party of one
Now pour me another and I’ll take it with me for the road
I like my liquor warm and I keep my shoulders cold
But you can’t no you can’t sit still but you got nowhere to go
