As hope and promise fade
And the sun forgets to rise
I'm lonely and I'm thirsty
But it's better I stay dry
Never more than two drinks away from crying

Stare into the glass
And wait for the time to pass
I thank you for the offer
But you know I must decline
Never more than two drinks away from crying

There used to be a time
When I could hold my head up high
My life stretched out before me
And rivers flowed with wine

I had my love beside me
And everything was fine
Now the ride is over
It's hard to say goodbye

As hope and promise fade
And midnight turns to day
I'd love to drown my sorrow
But I cannot tell a lie
Never more than two drinks away from crying
