The Bottle And You
Copyright 2016 by Wes Tibbets

Verse One

Summertime’s coming, I’m out wandering
The sidewalks of my memories
It’s like window shopping, I’m standing and watching
With a glass between you and me
There’s cracks in the sidewalk, a heart that’s been walked on
Really they’re both and the same
The more pressure you apply to anything over time
The day’s coming it’s going to break

Chorus

How do I choose between the bottle and you
When baby there are no shades of grey
One makes me remember, one makes me forget
It’s either take the pain or numb it away
The more that I drink, the less time I think
Of all the ways you make me feel blue
So I go out each night and leave you behind
When I choose between the bottle and you

Verse Two

When I go out walking, I hear people talking
But none of them are talking to me
It’s a dark, windy night, not a star in the sky
And I’m alone with your memory
Ahead in the distance, I can see an entrance
Somewhere that my thoughts can rest
Where I can sit down in a chair, forget why I’m there
It’s the option that I like the best

Chorus

How do I choose between the bottle and you
When baby there are no shades of grey
One makes me remember, one makes me forget
It’s either take the pain or numb it away
The more that I drink, the less time I think
Of all the ways you make me feel blue
So I go out each night and leave you behind
When I choose between the bottle and you

Bridge

At the end of the night, I know that I’ll find
A way to walk away and leave you behind
And if even for a moment, maybe then I won’t
Completely feel so lonely inside

Chorus

How do I choose between the bottle and you
When baby there are no shades of grey
One makes me remember, one makes me forget
It’s either take the pain or numb it away
The more that I drink, the less time I think
Of all the ways you make me feel blue
So I go out each night and leave you behind
When I choose between the bottle and you

The more that I drink, the less that I think
When I choose between the bottle and you
