So Much Wine

I had nothing to say on Christmas day
When you threw all your clothes in the snow
When you burnt your hair, knocked over chairs
I just tried to stay out of your way
But when you fell asleep with blood on your teeth
I got in my car and drove away

Chorus Listen to me, Butterfly
There's only so much wine
You can drink in one life
And it will never be enough
To save you from the bottom of your glass

Where the state highway starts I stopped my car
I got out and stared up at the stars
As meteors died and shot cross the sky
I thought about your sad, shining eyes
I came back for my clothes when the sun finally rose
But you were still passed out on the floor
