Lyrics
SEEING THROUGH HIS PAIN TO
THE BOTTOM OF A BOTTLE
(STEVE DAFOE 2006)
(COPYRIGHTED)


CHORUS : 1

Fmaj7(6th Fret) Fmaj7(4th Fret)
LOOKING THROUGH HIS PAIN TO THE BOTTOM OF A BOTTLE
THINKING 'BOUT THE GOOD THINGS THAT NEVER HAPPENED
IN THE SHIMMER OF THE GLASS, SEES A DIFFERENT LIFE
JUST A MIRAGE...IN THE PAIN OF THE MOMENT...
AS HE DRINKS HIS WAY TO THE BOTTOM OF A BOTTLE
KILLING HIS PAIN TO THE BOTTOM OF A BOTTLE

VERSE: 1

Cm7 (1Pluck A.. 2 Plucks B) Fmaj7 (1Pluck A.. 2 Plucks B)
A HARD LIFE...BAD CHOICES ALONG THE WAY
TORN CLOTHES, A FACE WEATHERED BY ABUSE
HARD HANGOVERS ON EVERY SINGLE DAY
MOMENTS OF HER THAT NEVER GO AWAY
FROZEN IN TIME...ONLY THING THAT STAYS....TO: CHORUS

VERSE: 2

Cm7 (1Pluck A.. 2 Plucks B) Fmaj7 (1Pluck A.. 2 Plucks B)
THE SAME WAY, LIKE HIS DADDIE USED TO DO IT
DRUNK AND MEAN, AS HE PUT A BEATING ON HIS MOTHER
BLACK AND BLUE, THEY ALL TOOK HIS HITS
FEAR ON FEAR, ON EVERY SINGLE DAY
LIKE FATHER...LIKE SON, HE'D FOLLOW THE SAME WAY ....TO: CHORUS

VERSE: 3
Cm7 (1Pluck A.. 2 Plucks B) Fmaj7 (1Pluck A.. 2 Plucks B)
THE ONE GOOD THING THAT EVER CAME HIS WAY
BEAUTY ON BEAUTY, ALL SHE DID WAS BRING SOME LOVE
LIKE FATHER LIKE SON, HE RAISED A DRUNKEN HAND ABOVE
DRUNK AND MEAN, HE DROVE HER TO NEVER STAY
MEMORIES OF HER THAT'LL NEVER GO AWAY ....TO: CHORUS

Pro Review by Mike Lewis, Nashville, Tennessee, US

Good vocal and guitar track. I like this song, and what you did with it. Generational problem dealt with in an interesting way....
Cool vibe, tough subject, but not too dark... Still bright enough to get the point but still enjoy. Nicely done Not sure i'd change a thing.
