Bitter are the words that fell like candy from my tongue
I thought that I was smart but as it turns out I'm so dumb
I woke with my head on the bathmat right beside the tub
I don't wish I was dead but I might wish that when I stand up

And I think that I might have told you
A thing or two that I wish that I hadn't told you
Please don't remind me if I said that I loved you

We stayed up late talked too much drank too much
I made the mistake of not knowing when it's enough
But you hung around and I shoulda gone home instead
Cuz we drank too much loosed my tongue and lost my head

I try not to make a mess where I eat
And I try hard to keep my head above my feet
Sweet were the words that I let fall onto your plate
But you backed away from the table with a red face

And I think that I might have told you
A thing or three that we both wish that I hadn't told you
Please try to forget that I said that I loved you

Moving through my day sad but that's no use to me
I point my boat to shore but I keep heading out to sea
Bitter is the taste on my lips and on my tongue
I thought that I was smart but as it turns out I'm so dumb
