lyrics

I wish I was a happy drunk
but I'm mean as hell and I don't know why

tennessee, I feel the click and then I seem to lose my mind

Black as a moonless night
Rage for the hopeless fight

the battle for a false position
will create a worn condition

I wish I was a happy drunk
but I'm mean as hell and I don't know why

old writer, you do simplify and still I tried to hold the line

Jake, I thought when I was young
Brett is not the only one

but I can't choose the love I find
true love is the only kind

there are better days
and there are days that can kill

nights that satisfy
with no particular thrill

when the morning comes
like it always will

I'll take whatever I've learned
and leave the past down the hill

and I'll never pursue, a love that's not true

there are better days
and there are days that can kill

nights that satisfy
with no particular thrill

when the morning comes
like it always will

I'll take what I've learned
and leave the past down the hill

and I'll never pursue, a love that's not true

I wish I was a happy drunk
but I'm mean as hell and I don't know why

cassidy, my honesty was lost but I don't want to meet your end

there's somethin to the easy road
suit your needs and nothing more

choices made to bluff contrition
will confuse the expedition

I was sure I'd get away with this lie
just till the day that I die

she had all a man needs
but love wasn't to be

and I drank my way out of her life
