You think you know someone until you're with them when they take a couple of shots.

All you ever do is get drunk;

search for your problems in the bottom of a bottle. 

But,

let me tell you, 

they're not down there. 

So stop drowning yourself in

whiskey, 

vodka, 

shots. 

The wine isn't going to make him call,

The beer isn't going to fix your heart, 

and Jack won't sweep you off your feet this time. 

Just because the burn of alcohol going down your throat

kills your memories, 

doesn't mean that it kills your problems too.
