about

The idea for this song came about when we were 17 years old and new to the effects of alcohol. Now, some years later, we came back and wrote something to the detriment this drug has had in our lives. In a fun way, of course.

lyrics

D# Standard

A D E

I've got nowhere to go
so I'll just sit right here blowin' smoke
my head is clear for now but not for long
it's a wonder where all those barroom nights have gone

because
I've been drinking

my spirits are high, my spirits are low
my voice has no where else to go
I have had enough to think
not enough to fill my drink

now you know that I didn't mean
to spill my guts to you and in your kitchen sink
I may have said some things I may regret
but thankfully those words I'll soon forget

I'm sorry for my sobering thoughts
they flew right out of my mouth, they couldn't stop
now I bask in the morning light, the dreadful feeling I think we fought
I was playing it low key, but now my plans are shot

I've been drinking
