lyrics

I have a flare for folly and a talent for torment
What is fear if not my friend?
These feelings get me through
And I don’t know why but I think of you
I drank a glass of wine and I saw you looking oh so fine but I
Didn’t think we had the time
So I just kept on dreaming how I’d make you mine

I try try to get it right
But it feels so right to get it wrong
Why why get it right when it feels much better just to get along?

I visited my family but not stay
I filled up my glass and put it away
But there’s a hole in the bottom that I just can’t make
Any better without first making it break

I try try to get it right
But it feels so right to get it wrong
Why why get it right when it feels much better just to get along?

Well water gets through anything
It just drips and drips and lets itself in
One day I will always win
But for now I don’t know where to begin
I seek happy ends in wine and wisdom and all of my friends
I’ll fill my glass again but for now
I just don’t know when

I try try to get it right
But it feels so right to get it wrong
Why why get it right when it feels much better just to get along?
