The sun is gonna wake up shinin'
It'll be the only thing that's blindin'
When the buzz wears off
My bloodshot eyes will remind me 
Of the pretty stranger sleepin' beside me
When the buzz wears off
Thought the haze could erase all the hurt that remains
But believe me
Tryin' to forget that you love somebody ain't easy

Last night I got to thinkin', if I get to drinkin'
Maybe I could fly higher than the pain
Girl, look for a minute, felt like I was winnin'
Wasn't even thinkin' 'bout your name
I knew the shots were a long shot
Whiskey's just a temporary memory loss
But you're still gone, you're still gone, yeah you're still gone

When the buzz wears off
I swore as the night got older
You wouldn't be hangin' over my shoulder
When the buzz wears off
I could smile for a while
I was strong as the drinks they were pourin'
Now I'm sober enough to see the truth in the light of the mornin'
Last night I got to thinkin', if I get to drinkin'
Maybe I could fly higher than the pain
Girl, look for a minute, felt like I was winnin'
Wasn't even thinkin' 'bout your name
I knew the shots were a long shot
Whiskey's just a temporary memory loss
But you're still gone, you're still gone, yeah you're still gone
When the buzz wears off

Thought the haze could erase all the hurt that remains
But believe me
Tryin' to forget that you love somebody ain't easy
Last night I got to thinkin', if I get to drinkin'
Maybe I could fly higher than the pain
Girl, look for a minute, felt like I was winnin'
Wasn't even thinkin' ' bout your name
I knew the shots were a long shot
Whiskey's just a temporary memory loss
Last night I got to thinkin', if I get to drinkin'
Maybe I could fly higher than the pain
Girl, look for a minute, felt like I was winnin'
Wasn't even thinkin' 'bout your name
I knew the shots were a long shot
Whiskey's just a temporary memory loss
But you're still gone, you're still gone, yeah you're still gone
When the buzz wears off
Ooh, yeah
When the buzz wears off
