Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Drink up, baby, stay up all night
With the things you could do, you won't but you might

The potential you'll be, that you'll never see
The promises you'll only make


Drink up with me now and forget all about
The pressure of days, do what I say

And I'll make you okay and drive them away
The images stuck in your head

[Chorus]
People you've been before that you
Don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still


Drink up, baby, look at the stars
I'll kiss you again, between the bars
Where I'm seeing you there, with your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught

Drink up one more time and I'll make you mine
Keep you apart, deep in my heart

Separate from the rest, where I like you the best
And keep the things you forgot

People you've been before that you
Don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

[Chorus]
