All My Friends Are Alcoholics

from by The Broken Bicycles



Something's waiting for me at home tonight
and it's not someone to hold me tight
I've waited these eight long hours
to surrender to it's powers

all my friends are alcoholics
and if it's not a boy that's tall it's
some whiskey that treats us all the same
some gin that never forgets our name
something weaker something stronger
something that keeps us drunker longer

I made some new words up today
they took the rest of my beer away
and yes I'm safe to drive a car
if you'll just five more hours stay

It used to take me only three beers
now it takes me twelve and a half
and I've been drunk for probably three whole years
but I'm not very good at math
one or two of something stronger
three or four keeps us drunker longer
