  • Pour a drink and take a sip of it
    Feelin' like a hypocrite
    Couple more and I won't give a shit
    I never used to talk, I never used to talk like this

    I'm sorry I named the album, "Montevallo"
    And I'm sorry people know your name now
    Strangers hit you up on social media
    I'm sorry you can't listen to the radio
    Or drive out to the place we used to get peaches down in Pelham
    I know you want your privacy
    And you got nothing to say to me
    But I wish you'd let me pay off your student loans with these songs you gave to me
    'Member the first time you stayed with me?
    Overpacked, and drove up, and went to the CMA's with me
    Two years later, it felt like you were a million miles away from me
    And I was the one on stage, drunk
    Barely holdin' on, on ABC
    Hope your dad still prays for me

    Drinkin' too much, drinkin' too much
    Since you been gone, I can't get gone enough
    I'm on top of the world, goin' down
    I'm gon' drink it all 'til you're not around
    Drinkin' too much, drinkin' too much
    Since you been gone, I can't get gone enough
    I'm on top of the world, I'm goin' down
    I'm gon' drink it all 'til you're not around

    A year ago, I was in a hotel room in Phoenix
    Wonderin' if it's ever okay to lie
    'Cause I knew the truth would make you wanna die
    But I told you everything, you told me to have a good life
    But you still couldn't believe it was really goodbye
    Every night you'd fill the bathtub up
    Lie there for hours, put your face underwater and cry
    I never wanted to be a heartbreaker
    Turn your sisters and friends into matchmakers
    I know you think my dreams came true
    But since you been gone
    Singin' these songs is just something to do
    The only dream I ever had was you
    I hope you know I'm still in love
    It's the kind you can't fall out of

    Drinkin' too much, drinkin' too much
    Since you been gone, I can't get gone enough
    I'm on top of the world, goin' down
    I'm gon' drink it all 'til you're not around
    Drinkin' too much, drinkin' too much
    Since you been gone, I can't get gone enough
    I'm on top of the world, I'm goin' down
    I'm gon' drink it all 'til you're not around

    I know this might seem like a contradiction
    And the last thing you need is more unwanted attention
    But you changed your number and moved
    And this is the only way I could reach you
    So wherever you are, turn it up and listen

    Hannah Lee, I'm on my way to you
    Nobody can love you like I do
    I don't know what I'm gon' say to you
    But I know there ain't no way
    Know there ain't no way
    Know there ain't no way we're through Writer/s: Sam Hunt, Shane Mcanally, Stuart Hine, Zach Crowell
