Lyrics

Well, his bar sure is empty,
About as empty as my heart
But those bottles look like there’s life left in them,
And I got time to talk
You can sit down if you want to,
Throw some conversation my way,
Me, I’m just drinking
memories of better days
If you’re buying, I don’t mind trying
Stretching out the truth, doing a little denying to ease my pain
I need to remember the way that he held me,
And if it takes another drink, maybe you could save me;
I wanna feel that rush of love again
So please be kind; Pretend that you’re him tonight
Throw me, throw me a lifeline
Well, I know beggars can’t be choosy,
But tell me, who’s really choosing who?
I mean, we’re both sitting here reminded
Of lovers we once knew
Requesting their favorite songs from that bartender,
Watching their ghosts walk through that door
How come love always starts out so easy,
'Till someone ends up wanting more
If you’re buying, I don’t mind trying
Stretching out the truth, doing a little denying to ease my pain
I need to remember the way that he held me,
And if it takes another drink, maybe you could save me;
I wanna feel that rush of love again
So please be kind; Pretend that you’re him tonight
Throw me, throw me a lifeline
When the sun comes up,
I swear I’ll deal with who I am
But can I rest here on this bar chair until then?
If you’re buying, I don’t mind trying
Stretching out the truth, doing a little denying to ease my pain
I need to remember the way that he held me,
And if it takes another drink, maybe you could save me;
I wanna feel that rush of love again
So please be kind; Pretend that you’re him tonight
Throw me, throw me a lifeline
