Bottle Talk

This song is by Damien Dempsey.

Yeah, living in my rented room I sharply had a fall
I fell into a bottle and no one heard my call and my father said
"Why do you think that you stumbled into this bottle that you fell?"
And I say, "Father I think I lost my balance
Throwing pennies in the holy well"

Into the bottle you can fall
And there be no one there at all
Well, you can whine and you can pray
But it's up to you to say no way

I came across a friend of mine
Who had plunged and sank deep down
And I wondered if I knew him
Because his mind had turned around

So I sat for a while with this stranger
He was a shell of what he'd once been
And I thought of all the alcohol
And all the pain and greed that I've seen

Into the bottle you can fall
And there be no one there at all
Well, you can whine and you can pray
But its up to you to say no way, no way

Mothers all around the world
Try to teach your children to stay
To stay well away from the bottle
If you don't to watch decay

Decay of the mind and the soul as well
There's no need to go through that pain
Mothers you wanted your children
Not to drown in the acid rain

Into the bottle you can fall
And there be no one there at all
Well, you can whine and you can pray

It's up to you, yes it is
It's up to you, ooh yes it is
It's up to you, yes it is
It's up to you, to say no way
No way, no way, nah, nah, nah
