drinking again lyrics – bette midler

drinkin’ again.
thinking of when you loved me.
having a few.
wishing that you were here.

making the rounds.
buying a round for total strangers.
just being a fool,
’cause i keep hoping, hoping, hoping you’ll appear.

sure i can borrow a smoke.
i can sit here all night and tell these jokers some jokes,
but who wants to laugh, who’s gonna laugh
at a broken heart?
oh, my heart is aching, i swear it’s breaking.

and i’m drinking again.
thinking of when you loved me.
and i’m tryin’ to get home
with nothing, nothing but a memory.

yes, i’m dying to get home,
dying to get home.
and i got nothin’ but a bottle of beer,
and just my memory.
