We both know the reason why you've called
So stop wastin' time tryin' to soften up my fall
I know you want to sweeten up the taste
But if you don't mind, I'll just take my sorrow straight

You almost make it seem like somethin' nice
The way you take your bad news and you pour it over ice
That's a kindness I don't appreciate
'Cause I like to take my sorrow straight

[Chorus]
I wouldn't say that I'm any stronger than the rest
But no matter what you say it ain't gonna hurt me any less
'Cause in the end there is really no escape
So I go on and I just take my sorrow straight.
