lyrics

Drinking Buddy

I’ve heard just about every stupid thing you’ve ever done.
I’ve heard countless tales of every crazy woman you’ve made come
Well you wed your next door neighbor, who seemed so nice at first
Then she tried to kill you and things couldn’t get much worse
Ah but what about those gypsy sisters and that old Romani curse?
And you talk your way out of everything with a quick Bob Dylan verse

When your drinking buddy becomes your lover
Do you set those thoughts aside as you push and pull each other?
When your drinking buddy becomes your lover
What do you become to them?
What do you become to them?

You’ve seen just about every drunken stupor I’ve been in
You’ve heard countless tales of hook-ups, break-ups, make-ups and boyfriends
Pull up a couple bar stools at a high top in the dark
where we talk smokes and baseball and vintage Gretsch guitars
and then I kissed your best friend at the corner of the bar
I cried to you when we broke up, you said I was a star

When your drinking buddy becomes your lover
Do you set those thoughts aside as you push and pull each other?
When your drinking buddy becomes your lover
What do you become to them?
What do you become to them?
