Drinking from the Bottle
Written by Jay Matthes

First verse:
Girl you look so good in white
Takes me back to those summer nights
A moonlit body and a star tattoo
What didn't I hold when I held you?
Now the tables are set, the food is done
I guess you finally found the one

The best man wants a toast
to the well-being of both

I'd raise a glass to long white picket fences
and greener grass on the other side
I'd cheers to you - you're one tough act to follow
I'd raise a glass but I'm drinking from the bottle

Second verse:
Should've said I'd be out of town
but I didn't want to let you down
So I said yes and found a date
Haven't seen her since half past eight

Even before I came I knew
it'd break my heart when you said I do


I'm just trying to turn the page
Your memory don't better with age
but I got something here that does
and when I think about what was
