Everyday is a lifetime without you
Hard to get through, since you've been gone
So I do the only thing I know how to, to get by
I'm living for the night

I've drawn all the curtains in this old house
To keep the sun out and off my face
Friends stop by to check-in 'cause I've checked out
I tell them I'm fine, I'm living for the night

I can't hide the tears I cry, the pain that came with your goodbyes
The memories that keep me out of sight
Every night I venture out, into those neon arms that hold me tight
I'm living for the night

I'm a whole lot easier to talk to,
When I've had a few, I settle down
Whiskey kills the man you've turned me into
And I come alive
I'm living for the night

Daylight can't hide the tears I cried, the pain that came with your goodbyes
The memories that keep me out of sight
Every night I venture out, into those neon arms that hold me tight
I'm living for the night
I'm living for the night

Everyday is a lifetime without you
