Outside the bottle looking in

/Gregg

 

I rest my bottle on the bar

You keep yours tucked in your dresser drawer

And your eyes they fill with shame when you learn of my ways

But are my nights much different then your days

 

I’ve left my sorrows far behind

You keep all your loneliness confined

Your excuses only suffocate any happiness you’ll find

But it’s ok, as long as you remain


Outside the bottle looking in

Your diversion clears our mind of all your sins

And from your straight and narrow righteous path where you claim your life has been

Outside the bottle looking in

 

Well my conscious rests on an easy mind

While you keep your hidden demons locked away

Tell me can you hide your secrets all the way to judgment day

And what will you do if we let you stay

 

Outside the bottle looking in

Your diversion clears our mind of all your sins

And from your straight and narrow righteous path where you claim your life has been

Outside the bottle looking in

 

And with guys like me around

You can continue to be found

Outside the bottle looking in
