I hear that lonsome whisper
Since you've been gone

Howlin' names out loud
Across our front lawn

A ghost from the end
Cloaked over my guilt

A constant reminder
Of the pain I built

This fool carried on
With another back then
A selfish reflection
Of way back when
A "Black Tie Affair"
Is what started it all

The fire is out
Only ashes now
You moved on
and I lost how
A "Black Tie Affair"
It's a long, hard fall

I fell from grace
Like a shooting star

Everything that remained
I drank away at the bar

This green glass bottle
Holds me here in a room

Locked up thinkin'
Been drunk since noon


Music Break---

Every drink I take
Is crowned in hurt

Diggin' my grave
Knee deep in dirt

The red soil speaks
Of where good folks go

For me, it's uncertain
Only GOD..knows
