A Night I Can't Forget

You're a drunken mistake

a night of regret 

I can't shake

for God's sake 


I hurt someone I love 

just for the intake

of your breath

and the connection of our bodies


The liquor's speaking for me

I don't mean a word I say

if I could take it all back

I would not hesitate


You smell like whiskey and cologne

why were we ever left alone

I still feel the ghost of your hands

haunting my skin


You invited yourself in

but I don't ever want to see you again


I want to erase

the flashbacks in my head

of you lying in the bed


I've got guilt eating at my skin
