about

This one's an original, "Bag You Up." I really like writing in this style. It has a real sing-song quality to it that pushes you as a songwriter to focus on carving out what you want to say and trimming the fat around it. It also practically forces some twang into my voice, which is fun.

lyrics

Eighteen bottles of wine, four bottles of whiskey
Make a month together feel like a dream
As hazy as my eyesight in the morning
And as empty as your promises to me

Gotta bag you up and take you out of my life
Bottle by bottle, dress by dress
Letter by letter til it hurts less
Gotta bag it all up and take you out of my life

Seems like everything I have is tainted
Cause everything I have belonged to you
Now I can’t pour a drink without a memory
Cause that’s all that we ever used to do

Gotta bag you up and take you out of my life
Bottle by bottle, dress by dress
Letter by letter til it hurts less
Gotta bag it all up and take you out of my life

Well I used up all my lifelines, I can’t phone another friend
And I’m stuck here with the mess you left behind
You call me to curse and then you call to make amends
And I answer you again for the last time

Gotta bag you up and take you out of my life
Bottle by bottle, dress by dress
Letter by letter til it hurts less
Gotta bag it all up and take you out of my life

You never grew accustomed to the facets of routine
That keep a man from waiting up ‘til dawn
I used to think I loved you but you left me feeling mean
And I miss but I’m happy that you’re gone

Gotta bag you up and take you out of my life
Bottle by bottle, dress by dress
Letter by letter til it hurts less
Gotta bag it all up and take you out of my life
