lyrics

I was going to send you flowers
but I bought myself a beer
Lilies are for mourning
And I won't shed a tear
If I stopped to smell the roses
I would just wish you were here
I was going to send you flowers
But I bought myself a beer

I was going to buy you diamonds
But I started drinking gin
I never cared for Sapphires
But I brought that bottle in
And maybe I'm a loser
But it's really hard to win
I was going to buy you diamonds
But I started drinking gin

And my head is full of liquor and my heart is full of you
And maybe you don't love me
Baby, I don't love me, too

I was going to write a love song
But I opened up the wine
If it's good enough for Hemingway
I figured I'd be fine
But your hair is kind of orange
And I couldn't find a rhyme
I was going to write a love song
But I opened up the wine

I was going to say I love you
But I had a fifth of Jack
If I could put those words together
Maybe you'd come back
I was staring at your picture
When everything went black
I was going to say I love you
But I had a fifth of Jack
