  • Beer makes you weary
    But you need something to get along
    You stare at the flatness
    Beside the dark home
    They'll not hear you whisper
    This isn't where it ends
    Your hand holds the bottle
    That has become your last and only friend

    I've lost all hope
    There's hope for you
    If not just in the possibility
    Of a better next day
    If not just in the simple fact
    There's no other way

    You lie on that couch
    And try to dream once more
    But your only goal is to sleep
    Until the news is over
    And outside the leaves are all changing
    But you drink to forget
    Someone you once met
    Stands blocking the bright orange sunset

    I've lost all hope
    There's hope for you
    If not just in the possibility
    Of a better next day
    If not just in the simple fact
    There's no other way

    So open up those curtains
    And drink up the daylight
    Just by the brightness
    Open your doors wide
    'Cause things don't get better
    But some people do
    There's darkness in this life
    But the brighter side we also may view
    There's darkness in this life
    But the brighter side we also may view
