Bitter sweet thing, could this be a dream
Or just the same nightmare that keeps me awake
Feel it in my brain, toss out of pain
Pour a little up now, for the love that we made

I feel it in the morning, you’re still here in the morning
I see you, but you gonna telephone the doctor, I’m not okay
The bottom of the bottle, to fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof don’t change the truth
I tried it, but I can’t

I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim
I’ve tried all of them in
I can’t drink you away
All these rocks, I can’t swim out of this skin, oh baby them say
Now tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break
Ooh, no, tell me baby, oh yeah
Now don't they make a medicine for heart break

Got a pounding on my brain, so I drowned it away
When the sun comes up tomorrow
You can find me doing the same
'Cause I just can’t forget
The way we turned out this, babe
And now the only thing that sleeps here is a ghost of you instead

I feel it in the morning, you’re still here in the morning
I see you, but you gonna telephone the doctor, I’m not okay
The bottom of the bottle, to fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof don’t change the truth
I tried it, but I can’t

I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim
I’ve tried all of their friends
I can’t drink you away
All these rocks, I can’t swim out of this skin, oh baby them say
Now tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break
Ooh, no, tell me baby, oh yeah
Now don't they make a medicine for heart break

I can’t drink you, no I can’t drink you away, away
I can’t drink you, no I can’t drink you away, away
I can’t drink you, no I can’t drink you away, away
I can’t drink you, no I can’t drink you away, away, away

Ooh, I can’t drink you, I can’t drink you away

I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends
I can’t drink you away
All these rocks, I can’t swim out of this skin, oh baby them say
Now tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break
Ooh, no, tell me baby, oh yeah
Now don't they make a medicine for heart break

I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim
I’ve tried all of their friends
I can’t drink you away
All these rocks, I can’t swim out of this skin, oh baby them say
