This song is by Freakwater and appears on the album Old Paint (1995).

I wasn't drinking to forget;
I was drinking to remember
How I once might have looked
Through the eyes of a stranger When all hope should be gone
Still the dream somehow lingers Like the ghost of a snowstorm
And frostbitten fingers

Ten thousand backwards glances
Won't bring second chances
I never knew I was wasted;
I was way too far gone The face I think is mine
Is not the face that I see The worried face in the mirror
Whose worried eyes are fixed on me

All your beauty will be stolen
By a young girl in the night A thief as quiet as a dark cloud
That's stole away the moonlight
