By the River there's a little coffee shop
I was down so low, I needed a double shot
But when I saw her smile I thought I just might try
To make it through another night
I'd been doing some heavy drinking and spirits were sinking
When my best friend got killed in Iraq it had poisoned my thinking
He was just 19 when a shell blew him to a thousand pieces right before my eyes.
She introduced me to her brother and some friends
Who were laughing loud and not making sense
I could see by their eyes that they were high as a kite
And they had some plans
I asked her for her number and she broke out laughing
She said I don't even know you, but thanks for asking
With a smile and a wink she said "I'm not who you think I am."
Outside the window a man was walking
He was dancing funny and seemed to be talking
I could see it in his eyes he had some trouble inside his mind.
