Donna Hughes – Bottom Of A Glass lyrics

Young and handsome, star of the team
That all the young guys simply wanted to be
Girls dreamed about him when they thought he had it all
He got wound in trouble then, the star began to fall

Fell into drinkin' blew his college chance away
Left her on her own, couldn't face the life he made
And all his promises would soon turn into lies
She never made him happy and he never made her cry

And he drank to kill the trouble on his mind
He couldn't face the future or the ones he left behind
Everyday was more lonely than the last
And he only found forgiveness in the bottom of the glass

He started runnin' with the wrong kind of crowd
And started sleepin' on the wrong side of town
Then as time went on, he tried so hard to change
But he always left her cryin', she could never make him stay

One lonely night with tears on his face
He raised his glass and his life slipped away
Just a memory, once like a dream
Everyone looked down at the star of the team

And he drank to forget about the past
And all he ever wanted was what he couldn't have
Everyday was more lonely than the last
But he finally found forgiveness in the bottom of the glass
Yeah, he finally found forgiveness in the bottom of the glass
