Drink up baby, stay up all night
With the things you could do, you won't but you might
The potential you'll be
That you'll never see
The promises you'll only make
Drink up with me now
Forget all about
The pressure of days
Do what i say
& I'll make you ok
Drive them away
The image is stuck in your head

People you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove
And won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

Drink up baby
Look at the stars
Ill kiss you again
Between the bars
Where im seeing you there
With your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught
Drink up one more time
& I'll make you mine
Keep you apart
Deep in my heart
Seperate from the rest
But i like you the best
Keep the things you forgot

People you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove
And won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still
