Verse 1
Bitter sweet thing
Could this be a dream?
Or just the same nightmare that keeps me awake
Feel it in my brain
Tall shot of pain
Pour a little out now for the love that we’ve made

Pre-chorus
I feel it in the morning
It’s still here in the morning
I see ya but you’re gone
Telephone the doctor
I’m not okay.
The bottom of the bottle
To fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof
Don’t change the truth
I diving but I cant

Chorus
I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried jack
I’ve dried Gin
I’ve tried all of them yes
But I can’t drink you away
All these rocks, I can’t swim outta this skin I’m living in
Now tell me baby
Don’t they make a medicine for heartbreak?
Tell me baby, oh yeah, now don’t they make a medicine for heartbreak.

Verse 2
Got the pounding on my brain
So I drowned it away
When the sun comes up tomorrow
You can find me doing the same
‘Coz I just can’t forget
They way we turned out this big
And now the only thing that sleeps here is a ghost of you instead

Pre-chorus
I feel it in the morning
It’s still here in the morning
I see ya but you’re gone
Telephone the doctor
I’m not okay.
The bottom of the bottle
To fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof
Don’t change the truth
I diving but I cant

Chorus
I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried jack
I’ve dried Gin
I’ve tried all of them yes
But I can’t drink you away
All these rocks, I can’t swim outta this skin I’m living in
(Now say) Now tell me baby
Don’t they make a medicine for heartbreak?
Tell me baby, oh yeah (one time), don’t they make a medicine for heartbreak.

Bridge
(Break it down)
I can’t drink you; no I can’t drink you away, away
I can’t drink you; I can’t drink you away, away
I can’t drink you; I can’t drink you away, away
I can’t drink you; no I can’t drink you away

Chorus
I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried jack
I’ve dried Gin
I’ve tried all of them yes
But I can’t drink you away
All these rocks, I can’t swim outta this skin I’m living in
(Say) So tell me baby
Don’t they make a medicine for heartbreak?
Tell me baby, oh yeah (one time), don’t they make a medicine for heartbreak.
Tell me baby, did they make a medicine for my heartbreak, heartbreak
Tell me baby, did they make a medicine for my heartbreak
Coz I can’t drink you away
I’ve tried jack
I’ve tried Gin
I’ve tried all of the brim
I can’t drink you away
All theses rocks I can’t swim outta this skin I’m living in
