Song Description

You can worry about every single little thing, make a million preparations to make sure that nothing goes wrong in your life but at the end of the day there's nothing you can do to keep tragedy from hitting your life. There's no point in fighting it. Drink Up is about letting go and relinquishing control over the inevitable and enjoying the moment. It is truly all we got because we will all die one day. The central theme of Drink Up is live and don't worry about tomorrow. Seize the day, love right now and regret nothing.

Story Behind the Song

Drink Up is a song Val wrote after experiencing the tragic loss of her brother. Shortly after her grandfather died of Alzheimer's. This song is about how much she worried about things that might go wrong in life. After experiencing the worst of loss she realized that worrying and fretting over petty things to make sure nothing goes wrong is pointless and you might as well just enjoy yourself in the moment as best you can.

Lyrics

Verse 1
Always worry 'bout somethin'
Never got me nothin'
Bad things still happened
Worse than I'd imagined
I should have
Sat back and relaxed
Soaked up all the sun
Don't matter what we've done
Hard times are sure to come
Pre- Chorus
Can't pray it all away
So don't save it for a rainy day
Everything's gonna be ok
Shout it out and say
Chorus
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Drink Up
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Have fun
Cause we only got right now
Soon we'll all be in the ground
So whoa, whoa, whoa
Drink Up
Verse 2
Tonight I'm driving with the top down
All my problems drown out
Music playin' loud
All around town
I'm in the mood for something good
Texas to Hollywood
Don't matter where we go
All you need to know
Pre-Chorus
Drinks are all on me
I'll be giving it out for free
Cause everything's gonna be ok
Shout it out and say
Chorus
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Drink Up
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Have fun
Cause we only got right now
Soon we'll all be in the ground
So whoa, whoa, whoa
Drink Up
Bridge
Can't pray it all away
Everything's gonna be ok
Shout it out and say
Chorus
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Drink Up
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Have fun
Cause we only got right now
Soon we'll all be in the ground
So whoa, whoa, whoa
Drink Up
