I Drink Hard Enough When I Am Sober

written by: Grant Guy


I drink hard enough when I am sober
And I burn all my bridges

And I know there's a woman out there
Who loves me
I will never love her

These are known facts to me
But when I come to climb on the train
To take me away from here it will be late
