Yeah, I'll Stop Drinking

I'll stop drinking
When my heart stops hurting
When the wounds
Only the booze can soothe
Someday close
Someday stop their weeping
And the thought of you
Smiling with some other someone
Slices no deeper
Than the slash
Of a papercut.

I'll stop drinking
When the memory of you
Is just a moment,
A stubborn shit
Soon passed
Nothing more.
