lyrics

No closure
I got no closure
From my ex-lover
Or any of his friends
They been running ‘round this town
Trashing my name
I’ve never had to save so much face
In one damn place
I wish I had a whiskey martini
I’d be sipping on better times

My ex-lover
He’s been loving another
When all this time
He was supposed to be mine
I want him back so bad
But I’m so mad at what he’s done
I don’t know if I’ll ever live
To love another one
I wish I had a whiskey martini
I would throw it in his face.

Nobody knows
The isolation
That comes and goes
It’s real for sure
The kind of thing you never had done to you before
The kind of thing that cuts you to the core

No feelings
I’ve got no feelings
To hate or adore
They ain’t here anymore
I try to act like I’m on task
I know what’s going on
But I haven’t seen the ocean from the sea
Since they been gone
I wish I had a whiskey martini
I’d jump in and sail away

Nobody knows
The isolation that comes and goes
It’s real for sure
It’s the kind of thing you never had done to you before
It’s the kind of thing that cuts you to the core

No closure
I got no closure
From my favorite lover
Or any of my best friends
I don’t know where they been
They do this time and time again
I wonder to myself,
Hey darilng, did you order for this?
I wish I had a whiskey martini
I’d be sipping on better times (oh yeah)
Sipping on better times
Excuse me, bartender?
Can I have another round of better times?
