Drunk Again

Songfacts®:

  • This is about a breakup. The guy doesn't feel too good about it, he drinks his sorrows away. It seems as if he guessed wrong about their relationship, and she hurt him. He doesn't want to be hurt by it, but is anyway. He afraid of being drunk and without a girlfriend.
  • Trumpet player Scott Klopfenstein sang lead on this instead of the group's usual lead singer, Aaron Barrett. >>
