I got a friend who says he's a functioning alcoholic
Yeah well I know he's not functioning that well
He keeps some water by his bed
Like it'll help his pounding head
Two shots of heaven for another day in hell

But it's those midnight talks of triumph that keep him going
Some words to keep the worry off his mind
Yeah he loves staying up all night
Until that finish line's in sight
It's just the mornings that don't treat him so kind

And the sunlight has a way of shining through you
It can burn away the misdeeds of the night
And when you finally confront
That unapolagetic sun
You'll swear you've never seen it burn so bright

So come on lets do it
One more time
I swear that this'll be the last one for a while
And I'm not reckless
Or unkind
I just wanna be
Ok tonight

Oh there's a bus that roams the street's at midnight
Carrying the sick and dying home to rest
But I like to ride it on the way
To my next big mistake
It's the place that I just seem to like the best

And there's people in this city who will court you
And tell you everything you've ever wanted to hear
And you might laugh and have a drink
But when you're home alone you'll think
Is this really who I want to hold me dear

You know sometimes I get this feeling
Like I will stay right here until I'm dead
And it just makes me want to sleep
Away the day but I just keep
Getting back up
I guess I'll write a song instead

So come on lets do it
One more time
I swear that this'll be the last one for a while
And I'm not reckless
Or unkind
I just want to be
Ok tonight

You know I never thought of myself as a poet
Just a man with two eyes open and something to say
But every twitch and squirm
As they tumble out in words
Feels good some how
At list it does today
