lyrics

Standing there
On your knees
They tell you "be a man, go get a job making more money for me"
Who would see
You for me
If I told you line your eyes, heels high
You're what I hate about me

Fucked up like I always am
Vyvanse romance 'til I run out again
Vodka keeps the pain out longer
But absinthe makes the heart grow fonder

Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder
Makes the heart grow fonder
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder
Makes the heart grow fonder
(x2)

Never cared
For you and me
You keep your talk, I'll walk my walk
It's always better for me
You dragged us here
You need the fear
Need a few more shots for my thoughts
It's getting harder to breathe

Another night erasing our thoughts
Hoping maybe my drugs would bring me closer to God
Whiskey makes the lust grow stronger
But absinthe makes the heart grow fonder

Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder
Makes the heart grow fonder
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder
Makes the heart grow fonder
(x2)

Drink it in; Drowning in
Breathe it in; Get around
Closing in; Shutting down
Sinking in; Blacking out
Drink it in; Drown it out
Breathe it in; Get around
Closing in; Shutting down
Sinking in; Blacking out
Drink it in; Drown it out
Breathe it in; Get around
Closing in; Shutting down
Sinking in; I'm blacking out
Drink it in; Drown it out
Breathe it in; Get around
Closing in
Shutting down

Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder
Makes the heart grow fonder
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder
Makes the heart grow fonder
(x4)
