180 Proof

key of [G]

You’ve got nothing to prove to me
You don’t owe me a thing
Take your nickel
Take your dime
Take your dollar
Take your own sweet time
Take the bottle from the shelf
Take the blame upon your self

I never lied to you baby
But now I’m telling you the truth
You know, I never could be sure
But now I’ve got 180 proof
You only cut me til I bleed
Now I’ve got all the proof I need

Just give me one good reason
Why you had to treat me so bad
You just lost your temper
I know you just lost the best thing you ever had
You ain’t got but one excuse
I’ve got 180 proof

I think people have to choose between living with contradictions or painting themselves into a corner. I have a lot of contradictions.
