amber lyrics – cooper temple clause

remember the time i couldn’t speak
everybody heard
the pin didn’t drop it came and crashed down
then there was the time i couldn’t walk
everybody laughed
so entertaining was this breakdown

turn and face the walls
i’m only drinking
eyes to the floor
i’m merely sinking

then there was the time i couldn’t see
blind as a bat for drink and easy laughs
a terrible time
but keep it in mind
you can’t tell your friends man cos this sh*t is mine

turn and face the wall
i’m only drinking
eyes to the floor
i’m merely sinking
so leave me alone
and why does it have to get like this?
it always seems to get like this
well i never meant to get like this
every night
