    Drink up baby, stay up all night
    With the things you could do, you won't but you might
    The potential you'll be that you'll never see
    The promises you'll only make
    Drink up with me now, forget all about

    Lyrics
    Someone's always coming around here trailing some new kill
    Says I seen your picture on a hundred dollar bill
    And what's a game of chance to you, to him is one of real skill
    So glad to meet you, Angeles
    Picking up the ticket shows there's money to be made

    Lyrics
    I'm in love with the world through the eyes of a girl
    Who's still around the morning after
    We broke up a month ago and I grew up, I didn't know
    I'd be around the morning after
    It's always been wait and see, a happy day and then you pay

    Lyrics
    Your hand on his arm
    The hay stack charm around your neck
    Strung out and thin
    Calling some friend, trying to cash some check
    He's acting dumb

    Lyrics
    I had tender feelings that you made hard
    But it's your heart, not mine, that's scarred
    So when I go home, I'll be happy to go
    You're just somebody that I used to know
    You don't need my help anymore
