Lyrics
Reflections on a Bottle Waste away my life Facing every day Working on another bottle of gin Wish that I could know Would someone please tell me How to get out of this state I'm in Because I'm killing myself slowly I'm dying all the time This poison that's inside me keeps me going I am so alone Hiding in my bottle To try and keep my loneliness From showing Times always so short It seems to fly on by Hung over in the morning and drunk at night If I could touch your hand See the smile on your face Maybe I'd have the courage to set things right But I am killing myself slowly I'm dying all the time This poison that's inside me keeps me going I am so alone Hiding in my bottle To try and keep my loneliness From showing A smile on my face Glazed look in my eyes Stare at the glass and take another shot There's a reflection in the bottle I see your picture on the wall Reminding me again of what I haven't got So I keep killing myself slowly I'm dying all the time This poison that's inside me keeps me going I am so alone Hiding in my bottle To try and keep my loneliness From showing
