Hey why am I drinkin'? 'Cause there's no really reason to quit
And why am I thinkin'? God knows I'm trying to forget
And why does that woman who stay on my mind night and day?
And why am I drinkin'? Why am I hurtin' this way?

Is love just another word for mem'ry?
And is love just another word of pain?
The question is that love we really answered
And if so why is love so much to blame?

If love is what what we're really after, then why am I runnin' away?
And why am I drinkin'? Why am I hurtin' this way?
If love is what what we're really after, then why am I runnin' away?
And why am I drinkin'? Why am I hurtin' this way?
Yes honey, why am I drinkin'? Why am I hurtin' this way?
