Happy Drunk
(Thanks to Geraldo Zapola for original transcription.)

No one has to tell me
That you’re good man.
You might be as damn good
As they come.

No one has to tell me to be
Thankful for what I have;
I’m as thankful as anyone.

(chorus:)
I can live forever in this house,
Forever in your heart.
I still shiver in your arms.
And I can live with everything
You’ve become,
Justify the damage done,
If you were a happy drunk.

That bottle always changes
The way you look at me,
So it’s the only friend
You’ve got tonight.

You’re like a stranger
Asking for sympathy;
You don’t mind taking it
With a fight.

I can live forever in this house,
Forever in your heart.
I still shiver in your arms.
And I can live with everything
You’ve become,
Justify the damage done,
If you were a happy drunk.

It’s who you are,
It’s in your blood.
Ain’t nothing gonna change
That part of you —
The part that’s so damn hard to love.

I still shiver in your arms.

I can live with everything
You’ve become,
Justify the damage done,
If you were a happy drunk.
