  • I don't recall
    What I was drinking,
    But after the third one
    I was gone
    Seventeen
    And not really thinking
    Just wanted something
    Real strong

    Room spinnin' round faster and faster
    Drownin' in the midnight laughter
    But nothin' hits, nothin' hurts
    Like the morning after

    I gave in
    To him completely.
    We made plans
    And we made love.
    But this world
    Can cut a heart so deeply.
    And we both gave
    'Til we both gave up.

    An that night I lost everything that mattered
    And I thought I couldn't get any sadder
    But nothin' hits, nothin' hurts,
    Like the morning after.

    The morning after the storm
    The morning after all the rain
    When you wake up and you realize
    That you'll never be the same.

    Oh I don't care
    What I'm drinking.
    Just give me something
    Real strong.

    Room spinnin' round faster and faster
    Drownin' in the midnight laughter
    But nothin' hits, nothin' hurts,
    Oh nothin' hits, nothin' hurts,
    Like the morning after. Writer/s: ASHLEY MONROE, LIZ ROSE, LORI MCKENNA
