Drink You Away Lyrics

Bittersweet thing, could this be a dream
Or just the same nightmare that keeps me awake?
Feel it in my brain, tall shot of pain
Pour a little out now for the love that we've made

I feel it the morning, you're still here in the morning
I see you, but you're gone, telephone the doctor, I'm not okay
The bottom of the bottle to fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof don't change the truth, I dive in, but I can't

I can't drink you away
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim
I've tried all of their friends
But I can't drink you away
All these rocks, I can't swim
Outta this skin I'm livin' in

Say, now tell me, baby
Don't they make a medicine for heartbreak?
Tell me baby, oh yeah
Now, don't they make a medicine for heartbreak?

Got that poundin' on my brain, so I drowned it away
When the sun comes up tomorrow, you can find me doin' the same
'Cause I just can't forget, the way we turned out this bad
And now the only thing that sleeps here is a ghost of you instead

And then I feel it the morning, uh, you're still here in the morning
I see you, but you're gone, telephone the doctor, I'm not okay
The bottom of the bottle, uh, to fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof don't change the truth, I dive in, but I can't

I can't drink you away
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim
I've tried all of their friends
But I can't drink you away (no, I can't)
All these rocks, I can't swim
Outta this skin I'm livin' in

Say, now tell me, baby
Don't they make a medicine for heartbreak?
Tell me, baby, one time, come on
Don't they make a medicine for heartbreak?

Break it down
I can't drink you
No, I can't drink you away, away
I can't drink you
I can't drink you away, away
I can't drink you
I can't drink you away, away
No, I can't, uh, drink you
No, I can't drink you away

I can't drink you away, uh
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim
I've tried all of their friends
But I can't drink you away (no, I can't)
All these rocks, I can't swim
Outta this skin I'm livin' in

Say, so tell me baby
Don't they make a medicine for heartbreak? Don't they? Don't they? Tell me, baby
Tell me baby, one time
Now don't they make a medicine for heartbreak? Yeah
Oh yeah, tell me baby
Can't they make a medicine for my heartbreak? Heartbreak
Tell me baby
Can't they make a medicine for my heartbreak?

'Cause I can't drink you away, uh
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim
I've tried all of their friends
I can't drink you away
All these rocks, I can't swim
Outta this skin I'm livin' in
