If one drink
Could make tonight
Slip my mind then I
Should drink up
So I can forget that
I haven't lived my life
You are an example of
Better things to come
So why wait on some other escape
That leads me nowhere fast?
I've got to ask

You've got nothing to lose
Except for me and you
And I love that attitude
When you know I can do
I'll do better than you

If one drink, could make tonight
Slip your mind then you
Should drink up, so you can convince
Yourself that I'm cute
We are an example of
Why not to fall in love
It takes a turn and then it hurts
More than you could dream of

Well you've got nothing to lose
Except for me and you
And I love that attitude
When you know I can do
I'll do better than you

You've got nothing to prove
Oh no wait yes you do
You wear it so well that we think it's true

You can't stay I want you gone
For pulling the carpet I was standing on
You can't stay I want you gone
For pulling the carpet I was standing on
You can't stay I want you gone
For pulling the carpet I was standing on
Here's the exit, exit, exit

You've got nothing to lose
Except for me and you
And I love that attitude
When you know I can do
I'll do better than you
We are an example of (why not to fall in, why not to fall in love)

    Its saying that the partner in this relationship doesnt care as much, so if they leave then theyve got nothing to lose exept their relationship.

    This is just what I think it means:
    If one drink
    Could make tonight
    Slip my mind then I
    Should drink up
    So I can forget that
    I haven't lived my life
    (if one drink can make him forget, he'll drink it)
    You are an example of
    Better things to come
    (self explanatory)
    So why wait on some other escape
    That leads me nowhere fast?
    (so why wait for another girl, if your great?)
    I've got to ask

    You've got nothing to lose
    Except for me and you
    (self explanatory)
    And I love that attitude
    When you know I can do
    I'll do better than you
    (I like how you act especially when I can find someone better than you)

    If one drink, could make tonight
    Slip your mind then you
    Should drink up, so you can convince
    Yourself that I'm cute
    (if a drink can make you 'remember', then drink up and see if you remember out relationship)
    We are an example of
    Why not to fall in love
    (we're bot good together)
    It takes a turn and then it hurts
    More than you could dream of
    (once it gets good, it gets worse really fast)

    Well you've got nothing to lose
    Except for me and you
    And I love that attitude
    When you know I can do
    I'll do better than you
    [same as before]

    You've got nothing to prove
    Oh no wait yes you do
    You wear it so well that we think it's true
    (prove yourself)

    You can't stay I want you gone
    For pulling the carpet I was standing on
    (go away from me. You ruined this)
    You can't stay I want you gone
    For pulling the carpet I was standing on
    You can't stay I want you gone
    For pulling the carpet I was standing on
    Here's the exit, exit, exit
    (you can leave by taking the "exit")

    You've got nothing to lose
    Except for me and you
    And I love that attitude
    When you know I can do
    I'll do better than you
    We are an example of 
    (why not to fall in, why not to fall in love)
