Tonight in a bar alone I’m sittin’
Apart from the laughter and cheer
The scenes from the past rise before me
While watchin the bubbles in my beer
A vision of someone who loved me
Brings a lone silent tear to me eye
I know that my life’s been a failure
Just watchin’ the bubbles in my beer.
I’m seeing the road that I’ve traveled
A road paved with heartaches and tears
I’m seeing the past that I’ve wasted
While watching the bubbles in my beer.
I think of the hearts that I’ve broken
And of the golden chances that have passed me by
The dreams I once made now are empty
As empty as the bubbles in my beer.
