lyrics

I lost a good fifteen pounds on my last trip home
And only my grandparents even knew that I was gone
We went coast to coast on four and a half wheels
With cheap beer and cigarettes as two of our three meals
I took a line from your break up speech and I turned it into a new one liner
The waitress laughed right in my face when I tried it on her at the highway diner
Now I may say I miss you, but it doesn't mean I want you back
So tell your petty friends that there's no point in talking smack

Cause at least without you I have something to write about
And at least without you I have something to cry about
It might take some getting use to, knowing that you're gone
But without your inspiration how could I write these cliche songs?

I've been trying to see the positives of not having you around
Your hair can't clog up my sink, your shit's not on the ground
When I sprawl out in my bed there seems to be so much more of it
My bedroom seems so empty now, and that's the way I've always loved it
Maybe now I'll have some time, to practice with my band
I'll write some songs and get through this any way I can
And so to get over you I'll buy myself a case of beer
My good buddy Jack Daniels always says the things I need to hear

Cause at least without you I have something to write about
And at least without you I have something to cry about
It might take some getting used to knowing that you're gone
But without your inspiration how could I write these cliche songs

Just in case you're wondering, I might be stopping by tonight
My drunk self has been pondering letting you back in my life
My sober eyes don't argue, see you've always been a sight
My broken heart just hopes to God that I'm to drunk to drive.
