Bitter sweet thing.
Could this be a dream
Or just the same nightmare that keeps me awake?
Feel it in my brain.
A tall shot of pain.
Pour a little up now for the love that we've made.

I feel it in the morning.
You're still here in the morning.
I see you but you're gone
Telephone a doctor: I'm not okay.
The bottom of the bottle
To fill this empty heart up.
A thousand proof
Don't change the truth.
I tried it but I can't.

I can't drink you away.
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim,
I've tried all of their friends.
But I can't drink you away.
All these rocks–I can't swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.
Say

Now tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break, ooh?
Tell me, baby, oh, yeah, now don't they make a medicine for heart break?

Got a pounding on my brain.
So I drowned it away.
When the sun comes up tomorrow you can find me doing the same.
'Cause I just can't forget
The way we turned out this bad/bed.
And now the only thing that sleeps here is a ghost of you instead.

And then I feel it in the morning.
You're still here in the morning.
I see you but you're gone.
Telephone a doctor: I'm not okay.
Bottom of the bottle
To fill this empty heart up.
A thousand proof
Don't change the truth.
I tried it but I can't.

I can't drink you away.
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim,
I've tried all of their friends.
But I can't drink you away (no, I can't).
All these rocks–I can't swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.
Say

Tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break?
Oh, tell me, baby, one time, come on, don't they make a medicine for heart break?

Break it down

I can't drink you. No, I can't drink you away, away.
I can't drink you. I can't drink you away, away.
I can't drink you. I can't drink you away, away.
Oh, I can't drink you. No, I can't drink you away, away.

I can't drink you away.
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim,
I've tried all of their friends.
But I can't drink you away.
All these rocks–I can't swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.
Say

So tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break (don't they, don't they, tell me, baby)?
Oh, tell me baby, one time, don't they make a medicine for heart break, yeah?

Tell me, baby, can't they make a medicine for my heart break, heart break?
Tell me, baby, yeah, can't they make a medicine for my heart break?

'Cause I can't drink you away.
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim,
I've tried all of their friends.
I can't drink you away.
All these rocks–I can't swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.
