Alcohol

Alcohol, my permanent accessory.
Alcohol, a party-time necessity.
Alcohol, alternative to feeling like yourself.
Oh, alcohol, I still drink to your health.

I love you more than I did the week before
I discovered alcohol.

Forget the cafe latte, screw the raspberry iced tea.
A malibu and coke for you, a G and T for me.
Alcohol, your songs resolve like my life never will,
when someone else is picking up the bill.

I love you more than I did the week before
I discovered alcohol.
Oh alcohol, would you please forgive me?
While I cannot love myself
I'll use something else.

I thought that alcohol was just for those with nothing else to do.
I thought that drinking just to get drunk was a waste of precious booze.
But now I know that there's a time and there's a place where I can choose
to walk the fine line between self-control and self-abuse.

I love you more than I did the week before
I discovered alcohol.
And would you please ignore
that you found me on the floor
trying on your camisole.
Oh alcohol, would you please forgive me?
While I cannot love myself
I'll use something else.
Would you please forgive me?
Would you please forgive me?
