Written 2008/2009


Well drink up baby, God knows you need it tonight
‘Cause I’m not your savior and you’re not doin’ alright
But at least I’m here
And that’s more than you can say for him

So messed up baby, I don’t know where you’ve been
You’ve got fire on your lips and a tongue full of poison
But at least you’re safe
From the perils of an empty bed

And now you’re gone and I’m still stuck out here
Wishing you would dry up all these tears
Every letter of every word
I sang for you, you haven’t heard
All these notes
Are about you

So empty hearted, I’m calling out your name
And you say I’m clingy, you say that I’m a shame
But at least I’m tryin’
And that’s more than I can say for you

Despondent and broken, who are you with tonight
‘Cause I’m left alone, and things haven’t been alright
But at least it’s not over
At least this isn’t the end
