Handle On You

Album: yet to be titled (2022)

  • I went and bought the biggest bottle they got 'cause you're gone
    Dropped a needle on a vinyl and cried to an old Haggard song
    Sittin' at the table, baby, breaking the seal
    Gonna see how much of this pain I can kill
    I went and bought the biggest bottle they got 'cause you're gone

    Tennessee and Kentucky 'cause you ain't here to love me
    I drink now that there's nothing to lose
    I've been fightin' with your memory, I hate the way it hits me
    I wake up every day, black and blue
    After all this back and forth, a fifth won't do
    Yeah, I finally got a handle, finally got a handle on you

    I tell myself that I should quit but I don't listen to drunks
    I keep on sippin' till, "I miss you" don't roll off my tongue
    Since you poured our love down the sink
    I think I'll just stay here and drink
    I tell myself that I should quit but I don't listen to drunks

    Tennessee and Kentucky 'cause you ain't here to love me
    I drink now that there's nothing to lose
    I've been fightin' with your memory, I hate the way it hits me
    I wake up every day, black and blue
    After all this back and forth, a fifth won't do
    Well, I finally got a handle on you

    After all this back and forth, a fifth won't do
    Yeah, I finally got a handle, finally got a handle on you
    Handle on you
    Yeah, I finally got a handle on you
