With every breath I'm takin',
Is just the sound of my heart breakin'.
Don't worry I'll be alright,
With all the tears I cry tonight.
Cryin’ a river that soon goes dry,
Watchin' the lonely years go by.
Just pick up the pieces as you leave,
And pin it to my sleeve.
There for all to see,
Just so others know what a big fool I can be.
No need for concern,
I’m sure someday I’ll learn.
The sound unforgettable,
And always so regrettable.
Move along it will be alright,
With the river I cry tonight.
Time the healer of all pain,
Watchin’ love circle down the drain.
The bottle my best friend,
There for me till the bitter end.
The tears burning down so smooth,
Like the taste of gin and vermouth.
