It Gets Easier

  • Last night I dreamed that I'd been drinking
    Same dream I have 'bout twice a week
    I had one glass of wine
    I woke up feeling fine
    And that's how I knew it was a dream

    Last night I dreamed that I'd been drinking
    Cold burn of whiskey down my throat
    My hand turned into a rattlesnake
    And I laughed myself awake
    And that's how I knew it was a joke

    It gets easier but it never gets easy
    I can say it's all worth it, but you won't believe me
    Hold down your liquor or swallow your pride
    You'd rather keep it inside
    It gets easier but it never gets easy

    Last night I did myself a favor
    I called in sick and went downtown
    Drove past the local bar
    A cop got behind my car
    I wish he would pull me over now

    Last night I let myself remember
    Times I forgot a woman's name
    I blacked out behind the wheel
    How tight the handcuffs feel
    My daughter's eyes when she's ashamed

    It gets easier, but it never gets easy
    I can say it's all worth it, but you won't believe me
    You can't expect her to follow your lead
    She's fine with her wine and her weed
    It gets easier but it never gets easy
    It never gets easy

    It gets easier but it never gets easy
    I can say it's all worth it but you won't believe me
    Hold down your liquor or swallow your pride
    You'd rather keep it inside
    It gets easier but it never gets easy
    It never gets easy
    It never gets easy
