Weddings, Funerals, and Empty Hotel Bars - Lyrics

Do you mind if I sit down, am I keeping you from closing
I need a double shot of somethin' yeah just leave it open
Me, I'm from here, but I ain't been back lately
Not since my sister Jamie had her baby in the fall

Me and my friends used to come here in the 90s
Stupid kids with fake IDs, rebels without a cause
Ain't it funny they're still lining up on Elm Street
Sometimes I miss those old dreams, cheers to what could have been

but I know better than to drag up memories
What's meant to be is meant to be
Like 18 leaving in a beat up car
And, time has a way of making hometowns disappear
Feels like I only show up here
For holidays and acts of God
Weddings, funerals, and empty hotel bars

Did you ever have somebody that burned you up completely
Be glad believe me, that's why I'm drinking now
Yeah, I saw him standing with our old friends
And the girl I maybe could've been if I'd stuck around

But I know better than to drag up memories
What's meant to be is meant to be
But try to tell that to a heart
And, time has a way of making hometowns disappear
Feels like I only show up here
For holidays and acts of God
Weddings, funerals, and empty hotel bars

Guess I'll call it a night, cause I got an early morning
If you're feeling lonely I'm in room 128
I could use somebody, that ain't his body
I know I'm probably just putting off the pain

But I know better than to drag up memories
What's meant to be is meant to be
Tomorrow I'll pack up my car
And all those regrets they'll be in my rearview mirror
I'll see the bigger picture but tonight's the hardest part
Of weddings, funerals, and empty hotel bars
Weddings, funerals, and empty hotel bars
