Cheap red wine straight out of the coffee cup
One more down to drink you off my mind
Lord knows I've tried a thousand times to give you up
But it's closing time and we both know why

I'm just your selfish, I guess
I know you're tired and restless
It's no surprise we've come undone
But I cannot love you just because
You say it's better in the long run

We've been driving down this highway
And now were out of gas, too far out of town
Oh and here we are all tangled up and sideways
You're all broken down
Yeah I'm breaking down

I'm just as selfish, I guess
I know you're tired and restless
It's no surprise we've come undone
But I cannot love you just because
You say it's better in the long run

Oh and maybe somewhere a little down the line
I'll get a little better leaving us behind
Maybe someday, oh I'll be fine
You'll move on and I will too
But still I don't see getting over you
Oh nooo noo

I'm just as selfish, I guess
I know you're tired and restless
It's no surprise we've come undone
But I cannot love you just because
You say it's better in the long run

In the long run, oooh in the long run
In the long run, in the long run
