Paying For The Days Of Wine And Roses Lyrics

Once I lived the life of wine and roses
I drank a lot back then for one concern
Success for me lay just around the corner
I thought my social friends would help me make the turn.

But now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses
A victim of the drunken life I chose
Now all my social friends look down their noses
For I kept the wine and threw away the rose.

--- Instrumental ---

I stood by and watched the bottle take control of me
The turn I made was not the one I planned
And I watched my social standing slip away from from me
As I slowly watched the bottle take command.

And now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses
A victim of the drunken life I chose
Now all my social friend look down their noses
For I kept the wine and threw away the rose.
