The Alcohol Talking Lyrics

by Matthew Sweet

Do you realize you're laughing while you're reaching for the tear?
Even though I threaten that I'm never coming back again
The sweetest song you sing will never come again
'Cause once the alcohol is talking, you're not even here

Look into my eyes and tell me I have been the only one
And that you put a limit on the things you might do for fun
I tell myself there's nothing I should really fear
It's just the alcohol that's talking, you're not even here, that's right

Yes, I figured out, hey you, that time is never gonna change
You say you get your life in order but you only rearrange
Say I'm disappointed, it isn't really fair
It's just the alcohol that's talking, I don't even care
Just the alcohol that's talking, you're not even there
That's right and that's all
