What a performance tonight
Should I react or turn off the light?
Looks like you're picking a fight
In a blurring of wrong and right

How your mood changes
You're a devil, now, an angel
Suddenly subtle and solemn and silent as a monk
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk

It's better than nothing, I suppose
Some doors have opened, others closed
But I couldn't see you exposed
To the horrors behind some of those

Somebody said, "Listen, don't you know what you're missing?
You should be kissing him instead of dissing him like a punk
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk

All of my friends keep asking me
Why, oh, why, do you not say goodbye?
If you don't even try, you'll be sunk
Cause you only tell me you love me when you're drunk

What's the meaning when you speak with so much feeling?
Is it over when you're sober? Is it junk?
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk
