Lori McKenna – Happy Drunk lyrics

No one has to tell me that you're a good man.
He might be about as damn good as they come.
No one has to tell me to be thankful for what I have.
I'm as thankful as anyone.

I can live forever in this house,
Forever in your heart.
I still shiver in your arms.
I can live with everything but what you've become
Justify the damage done,
If you were a happy drunk...

That bottle always changes the way you look at me.
So it's the only friend that you've got tonight.
You're like a stranger half-skinned for sympathy.
You don't mind taking it with a fight.

I can live forever in this house,
Forever in your heart.
I still shiver in your arms.
I can live with everything but what you've become
Justify the damage done
If you were a happy drunk...

It's who you are, it's in your blood,
Aint' nothin' gonna change that part of you
The part that's so damn hard to love...

I still shiver in your arms.
I can live with everything but what you've become
Justify the damage
If you were a happy drunk...
