Fall prey to the blizzard head
I wrap my hand around the glass again
We all thought that I might change as I got older
Fell down and nothing bled
Wrapped in cotton alcohol again
"To the hilt!" I hear from the prick upon my shoulder
Free pour the fruitless thought
Far too late to talk so much but
I'm not giving up though I wish that I was sober

Forgive me I can't speak straight
Forgive me, I can't…

Choke down the gateway drug
Open the gates in came the flood, it comes
Like a blush of love it hits me without warning
Long nights of getting lost
I walk beneath a bridge I don't know
I need black suit for tomorrow I'm in mourning
My love, you should know
The best of me left hours ago so
Shove a rag into my mouth and let me smoulder
The fall out and the damage done
I can't un-sink the things I've sunk
Still not giving up, though I wish that I was sober

Forgive me I can't speak straight
Forgive me, I can't…
Forgive me it's far too late
Forgive me, I can't…

Come and and shake me till I'm dry
I wish that I was sober
Come and to me and kill the night off
I wish that I was sober
