Timberlake, Justin - Drink You Away Lyrics




Bitter sweet thing.
Could this be a dream
Or just the same nightmare that keeps me awake?
Feel it in my brain.
A tall shot of pain.
Pour a little OUT now for the love that we've made.

I feel it in the morning.
You’re still here in the morning.
I see you but you're gone
Telephone a doctor: I’m not okay.
The bottom of the bottle
To fill this empty heart up.
A thousand proof
Don’t change the truth.
I dive in but I can’t.

I can’t drink you away.
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends.
But I can’t drink you away.
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.
Say

Now tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break, ooh?
Tell me, baby, oh, yeah, now don't they make a medicine for heart break?

Got a pounding on my brain.
So I drowned it away.
When the sun comes up tomorrow you can find me doing the same.
'Cause I just can’t forget
The way we turned out this bad/bed.
And now the only thing that sleeps here is a ghost of you instead.

And then I feel it in the morning.
You’re still here in the morning.
I see you but you're gone.
Telephone a doctor: I’m not okay.
Bottom of the bottle
To fill this empty heart up.
A thousand proof
Don’t change the truth.
I dive in but I can’t.

I can’t drink you away.
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends.
But I can’t drink you away (no, I can't).
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.
Say

Tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break?
Oh, tell me, baby, one time, come on, don't they make a medicine for heart break?

Break it down

I can’t drink you. No, I can’t drink you away, away.
I can’t drink you. I can’t drink you away, away.
I can’t drink you. I can’t drink you away, away.
Oh, I can’t drink you. No, I can’t drink you away, away.

I can’t drink you away.
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends.
But I can’t drink you away.
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.
Say

So tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break (don't they, don't they, tell me, baby)?
Oh, tell me baby, one time, don't they make a medicine for heart break, yeah?

Tell me, baby, can't they make a medicine for my heart break, heart break?
Tell me, baby, yeah, can't they make a medicine for my heart break?

'Cause I can't drink you away.
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends.
I can’t drink you away.
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.

    You Can’t drink them away but time heals all wounds 💯

  3. Jimmy Chalmers

    I do not listen to current music. I heard this song a few weeks ago on XM radio. Yes, I had never heard it before. I woke up early this morning with the song in my head. It is on the best heartbreak songs I have ever heard, and in my 55yrs, I have listened to many.

  6. Cynthia Stiltner

    My husband and I love this song. Not talking about the man and woman part! We lost our son over 6 and a half years ago. He was 5. We often talk about how this song sums up what we go through everyday.

    Mean church organ rifts !

  58. Carrie Martarella

    So cool my mom loves it

  59. elmin82

    one of the best heartbreak song.

  60. Jennifer Graham

    They have cures for everything under the sun. But there's not a cure for heartbreak... Why is that?

  61. Michel Angstadt

    I detect some electronic voice distortion, courtesy of that shitty device known as the autotune. Doesn't surprise me. JT could sing with his own voice but he chooses to go with the herd.

  62. cess maureen

    Am so ready for his concert in Columbus!!!!

  63. purplegurl79

    You can take Justin out of Memphis, but you can't take Memphis out of him!!💜💜

  84. beautifulblackboy2015

    Why are some people calling this country? It's not...

    R1 Kira

    Because when morons hear an acoustic guitar they immediately think country. He's clearly a pop artist and this is a pop song

    Eric Fricke

    beautifulblackboy2015 well he did sing this with a country singer at the country music awards in Nashville...

    Taylore

    @Eric Fricke So does that mean Nelly's music is country?
