Lyrics:

It’s all well and fine, you wanna have a good time. You got yours and honey, I got mine.
Tried to bring them together cause it coulda been so much better,
Now you’re running on a different line.
Bloody knuckles, broken glass. Past due notices, thrown in the trash.
Cheap thrills and hospital bills, the mirror on the table, bottle of pills.
Flying high before the crash.
You had your high early in the afternoon, say good bye, you know I’m leaving soon.
Had your high early in the afternoon, say good bye, you know I’m leaving soon.
It didn’t take long to figure it out, when the liquor’s all gone and the money runs out, what you got left and what you left behind.
I’m gonna pray for you to find your way, til you can come done, I’m walking away.
Your resistance, creates distance, you can love nobody til you love yourself.
Do you remember the ones that survived the storm?
The friends and the lovers, daughters, mothers and sons.
They were in your path as you came crashing through.
Now there’s nothing you can do. Nothing you can do.
You had your high early in the afternoon, say good bye, you know I’m leaving soon.
Had your high early in the afternoon, say good bye, you know I’m leaving soon.
It didn’t take long to figure it out, when the money’s all gone and the liquor runs out,
What you got left and what you left behind.
