I hope life brings you what you need
And I'm sorry that I couldn't keep you
But you never thought that I will leave you
In the cold like this, too broke to face
You promised but I don't believe you anymore

Take your picture off the shelf
I don't wanna remember
I couldn't save you from yourself

I'm giving up on the way we've always been
I can't seem to get shore safe to swim
You don't see the writing on the wall

I can't stand to watch you self-destruct
Throw away your magic and your luck
There wasn't room for three here after all
You and me and alcohol
You and me and alcohol

What happened to the boy I knew?
Every now and then you know I miss you
Every now and then you know I still wish you were
Here with me but honestly, you'll never even know
The damage that you've done

You couldn't reach the other side
But at least I know I tried

I'm giving up on the way we've always been
I can't seem to get shore safe to swim
You don't see the writing on the wall

I can't stand to watch you self-destruct
Throw away your magic and your luck
There wasn't room for three here after all
You and me and alcohol

So misunderstood
For not everybody gets what's good
And baby, that's alright

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
And I wanted to believe that
It just might, it just might

I'm giving up on the way we've always been
Don't you see the writing?
Don't you see the writing on the wall?

I'm giving up on the way we've always been
I can't seem to get shore safe to swim
There wasn't room for three here after all
You and me and alcohol

I'm giving up on the way we've always been
You don't see the writing on the wall

Can't stand to watch you self-destruct
Throw away your magic and your luck
There wasn't room for three here after all
You and me and alcohol
You and me and alcohol
