​The Morning After

This song is by Ashley Monroe and appears on the album Like a Rose (2013).

Original video
I don't recall
What I was drinking,
But after the third one
I was gone
Seventeen
And not really thinking
Just wanted something
Real strong

Room spinnin' round faster and faster
Drownin' in the midnight laughter
But nothin' hits, nothin' hurts
Like the morning after

I gave in
To him completely.
We made plans
And we made love.
But this world
Can cut a heart so deeply.
And we both gave
'Til we both gave up.

An that night I lost everything that mattered
And I thought I couldn't get any sadder
But nothin' hits, nothin' hurts,
Like the morning after.

The morning after the storm
The morning after all the rain
When you wake up and you realize
That you'll never be the same.

Oh I don't care
What I'm drinking.
Just give me something
Real strong.

Room spinnin' round faster and faster
Drownin' in the midnight laughter
But nothin' hits, nothin' hurts,
Oh nothin' hits, nothin' hurts,
Like the morning after.
