EVERY DAY THAT I'M WRONG

[Chorus] 
Every day that I'm wrong 
the more I miss feeling right, 
giving my days to work
to be with you all night.
Should have said I’m sorry. 
In truth there’s still time. 
But every day I’m wrong 
it’s harder to do right. 
  
[Verse] 
I don't want to think about that night
but I replay it all the time.
When I knocked over your bookcase 
I must have been out of my mind.
You had done so much to love me,
even gave me a place to stay.
But I loved the liquor more 
and that drove you away. 
I told myself that you'd be back 
and it's surely been my pride 
that keeps me from calling you 
and admitting you were right. 

[Chorus] 
Every day that I'm wrong 
the more I miss feeling right, 
giving my days to work
to be with you all night.
Should have said I’m sorry. 
In truth there’s still time. 
But every day I’m wrong 
it’s harder to do right. 
 
[Verse] 
You wanted us to see that shrink 
who charges by the hour to sit. 
But I stayed home with those cigarettes 
you asked me to quit.  
You said this was a pattern
and that I'd never change.
There were so many second chances
I put Merly Hagard to shame.
There were good times when everything clicked,
our fights were just flirtations
and we only drank on the weekends.
Now drink is my sole salvation. 
  
[Chorus] 
Every day that I'm wrong 
the more I miss feeling right, 
giving my days to work
to be with you all night.
Should have said I’m sorry. 
In truth there’s still time. 
But every day I’m wrong 
it’s harder to do right. 
 
[Verse] 
Let's not end this like those sad songs 
I play in my room at night, 
searching for a country standard 
to make this pain feel right.  
Because somewhere past midnight 
lonely beers just taste flat 
and those songs won't comfort me, 
just make me miss what I had. 
Cause life can be filled with a coldness, 
and women who want more. 
So it pains me to think of you
and the ways you kept me warm.  
Baby I feel wrong, 
just plain wrong. 
I wish I could say I'm sorry, 
hope it's not been too long. 
 
[Chorus] 
Every day that I'm wrong 
the more I miss feeling right, 
giving my days to work
to be with you all night.
Should have said I’m sorry. 
In truth there’s still time. 
But every day I’m wrong 
it’s harder to do right.
