Elvis Costello and Elvis Costello & the Attractions - Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down

Tonight the bottle let me down
It let your memory come around
The one true friend I thought I`d found
Tonight the bottle let me down

I've always had a bottle I could turn to
And lately I've been turnin` every day
But the wine don`t take effect the way it used to
And I`m hurtin` in old familiar ways

Tonight the bottle let me down
It let your memory come around
The one true friend I thought I`d found
Tonight the bottle let me down

Each night I leave the bar room when it`s over
Not feeling any pain at closing time
But tonight your memory found me much too sober
I can`t drink enough to keep you off my mind

Tonight the bottle let me down
It let your memory come around
The one true friend I thought I`d found
Tonight the bottle let me down
