Chris CornellAs Hope And Promise Fade

As hope and promise fade And the sun forgets to rise Well, I'm lonely and I'm thirsty But it's better I stay dry I'm never more than two drinks away from crying I stare into the glass Wait for the time to pass And I thank you for the offer But you know I must decline I'm never more than two drinks away from crying There used to be a time when I could hold my head up high My life laid out before me Rivers flow with wine I had my love beside me And everything was fine Now the ride is over Time to say goodbye As hope and promise fade Midnight turns to day Well, I'd love to drown my sorrow But I can not tell a lie I'm never more than two drinks away from crying From crying From crying
