here comes that old feelin'
says, “hey how you been?”
love's made a fool out of me
just stopped by to size up the shape that I'm in
love's made a fool out of me

they say it's all you need and they're probably right
but it's also got teeth and it knows how to bite
now I'm licking my wounds and i'm too weak to fight

the bottle's no answer but it's a fine place to hide
now I'm covered and safe so here's mud in your eye
i pray thee, sweet jesus, in fact i downright insist
you grant the strength and the courage just to
get me through this
but I'd trade 'em to the devil
just for one more sweet kiss

we had a good life and we were so close
as to almost be kin
but we were perfect and someone had to pay for that sin and I'll love her forever and never again
