Celebrate Your Leaving

Celebrate Your Leaving

It's cold, and it's raining, and once again you're not here
I pour myself another favorite ice cold beer
I bet you never dreamed I could make it on my own
but since the day you left me I don't notice that you're gone

I toast another lonely night out here on the town
It kills the pain and helps shoot your memory down
What a fool I was to ever let you get away
but as long as I've got whiskey I can make it through another day

And, when they give the last call I won't have far to crawl
I'll be waiting for you when you come to call
I'll be here tomorrow, and each day down the road
drowning in my sorrow and carrying this load

Let's celebrate your leaving. Really tear the town up right
I'll get over you one bottle at a time
Music plays around me. The night goes on and on
Set 'em up, slam 'em back, and forget you once again

Set 'em up, slam 'em back, and forget you once again
