Frank Turner – The Next Round lyrics

I drink cause I'm thirsty
I drink cause I'm dry
I'm not yet quite thirty
But I feel like I'm dying

I drink cause I want to, cause I need to,
Cause I don't know what else to do
With my time, I won't say it
You can see it in my eyes.

You drink cause you're lonely
You drink cause you're sad
You always claim every party
Was the best time you've ever had

You drink cause you're scared of
A life of living off your own company
You won't say it but I can see it in your eyes.

Of all of the things I could become
A lonely drunkard isn't one
Which I would've wished
When I was young

Drink has drunk my days away
I tried to live like Hemingway
Life just doesn't work that way
Pills don't kill the pain
They just delay

We drink cause we're scared that
If we should stop
The good times will go away
But the bad times will not
What if it's over and we're sober
And we still feel like we're fixing to die
What then?
Don't say it cause I can see it in your eyes

Next rounds on me
Next rounds on me
Next rounds on me
Next rounds on me
Next rounds on me
Next rounds on me
Next rounds on me
Next rounds on me
