The Leaving Kind

The Leaving Kind

I haven’t been drunk in a week
If you were here, you’d be so proud of me
But you’re not
So I guess you’ll never know

You’ve seemed so unhappy for some time
And though I knew that leaving had crossed your mind
I never thought
That you would just up and go

Chorus:
All the booze in all the bars
Can’t kill my pain or hide my scars
I know that I can’t drink you off my mind
Maybe if I’d sobered long before now
I could have changed things somehow
Before I made you
I made the leaving kind

Your leaving hit me pretty hard
And I’m sorry you had to play your trump card
Just to make me
Give up all my rum and my gin

But my new found sobriety
Has made a remorseful man out of me
Maybe someday
We’ll be together again

Chorus:
All the booze in all the bars
Can’t kill my pain or hide my scars
I know that I can’t drink you off my mind
Maybe if I’d sobered long before now
I could have changed things somehow
Before I made you
I made the leaving kind

Bridge:
So gather up the car keys
And give them all to me
I’m a designated driver
Headed straight for insanity

Chorus:
All the booze in all the bars
Can’t kill my pain or hide my scars
I know I can’t drink you off my mind
Maybe if I’d sobered up before now
I could have changed things somehow
Before I made you the leaving kind
