Bender (Lyrics)

This is a song (lyrics only) I wrote in about 15 minutes after having a conversation with a girl who was hung-over after a night of drinking. She got plastered because of some bad news she got the day before, which had compounded on what was a pretty rough week. Since writing this initial draft I’ve been able to workshop the song & there is a link to an edited version at the end.

VERSE 1:
So you had a rough day
You figured you could drink it away
How’d that turn out for you?
Are all your troubles gone?
Did you manage to right any wrongs?

CHORUS:
What made you decide
To go on a bender
What made you think
It would make anything better
All your left with is
A headache
A hang-over
Some hazy memories
Of your tragic little bender

VERSE 2:
So you have a few problems
But it’s not as if they’re uncommon
It’s not the end of the world
Quit acting like a baby
Teetering on the edge of crazy

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
You drink until you
Pass out
Black out
Get knocked out cold
How can you expect to fix anything
When you lose all control

CHORUS

Bender 2.0 (after a workshop)
