Lyrics

A Fifth of the Night
c and p 2011 by Vincent T. Vok

Half my glass is empty but the other half is full
If I could trust my legs I would climb down off this stool
And dance the night away like some reckless dancing fool
You might think I've no regrets
But I'm sorry just like you

Part of me wants to fly but it's the part that has no wings
Part of me wants to stop remembering these things
I'd like to tell you something you could believe is true
You might think I'm flying
but I'm falling just like you

I drink to the point that I no longer think
I think to the point that I no longer care
I care to the point that I no longer wait
For the point to become perfectly clear

Time and love and circumstance are floating in the air
We drink it all like alcohol the father of despair
There's something I'm not saying and I'm not saying it to you
Cause you might think I've had my fill
but I'm empty just like you

Now which way is the sidewalk which way is the door
I might make it home tonight or sleep here on the floor
Or maybe I'll just wait our tears can help me choose
You might think that I don't care
But I'm crying just like you

I drink to the point that I no longer think
I think to the point that I no longer care
I care to the point that I no longer wait
For the point to become perfectly clear
