​Drinking Again

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album 'Round Midnight (1993).

Oh, it's almost two
Been sitting here wishing
That I could see you

That's why I'm drinkin' again
And thinking of when you loved me
I'm having a few
And wishing that you were here

I'm making the rounds
And buying the rounds for strangers
Yes, I'm being a fool
Just hoping that you'll appear

Sure I can borrow a smoke
Maybe tell some joker a joke
But who's gonna laugh, who's gonna laugh
At a broken heart
Oh, my heart is aching, I swear its breaking.

That's why it's better drinkin' again
And thinking of when you left me
Can't you see I'm tryin' to make it on home
And ain't got nothing but a memory

Maybe I can borrow a smoke
Maybe tell some joker a joke
But who's got the nerve
The nerve to laugh at my broken heart

That's why it's better drinkin' again
And thinking of when you left me
I'm tryin' to make it on home
With just a memory
I know you heard me the first time
'Im tryin' to make it on home
And ain't got nothing, nothing but a memory
