No I ain't had nothing to drink
I knew that's probably what you'd think
If I stopped by this time of night
Remember way back when
I promised you I'd drop in
At one of those meetings down at the Y
When they started talkin' 'bout the steps you take
Mistakes you make, the hearts you break and the price you pay
I almost walked away
You could hear a pin drop when this ole man
Stood up and said, I'm gonna say it again like I do every week
For those who don't know me...

It's the simple things in life
Like the kids at home and a loving wife
That you miss the most when you lose control
Everything you love starts to disappear
The devil takes your hand and says, no fear
Have another shot, just one more beer
I've been there, that's why I'm here

This ole boy stood up in the aisle
Said he'd been living a life of denial and he cried
As he talked about wasted years
I couldn't believe what I heard
It was my life word for word
And all of a sudden it was clear

It's the simple things in life
Like the kids at home and a loving wife
That you miss the most when you lose control
Everything you love starts to disappear
The devil takes your hand and says, no fear
Have another shot, just one more beer
I've been there, that's why I'm here

For us it may be too late
But it would mean the world to me
If you were there when I stand and say

It's the simple things in life
Like the kids at home and a loving wife
That you miss the most when you lose control
Everything you love starts to disappear
The devil takes your hand and says, no fear
Have another shot, just one more beer
I've been there, that's why I'm here
