You Look So Pretty When You're High

She takes her coffee with a splash of the sauce.
She sucks it down and she winces it off.
I know Iím supposed to help her by,
but you just look so damn pretty when youíre high.

Iíve been indulging just a little too much
Following you as you lean on your crutch
I know I have my own damn mind,
But you just look so pretty when youíre high

I donít know what youíre chasing in that bottle
you bought yesterday, now honey, how can that be?
Your love got me breaking from the throttle,
your foot on the gas, wherever is leads
These days got me shaking and I feel awful,
my head in a vice, my stomach just bleeds,
but honey, itís cool with me.

I suppose I should feel so damned ashamed of myself
for letting you fall out and breaking your health.
I know one day, Iíll get off my ass and try,
but you just look so damn pretty when youíre high.
