Sitting 'Round The House (Thinking 'Bout You)

Here's lyrics and video for a song I recently penned. It's a song about one of those long, lonely nights when your only company is the dog and a bottle, and all you can think about is the one that got away. The more you try to drink her off your mind, the more you can't keep your mind off of her. It's one of those songs. It's a bit dark, but I like it. Let me know what you think, boys and girls.


SITTING 'ROUND THE HOUSE (THINKING 'BOUT YOU)
There's a bottle on the shelf with a few pours left
Enough to get me pretty far
I slip into a hard drink and a soft chair
And light my last cigar
I puff too hard and start to choke
My eyes tear up from all the smoke
It makes a face I don't see much anymore

Well, I'm sitting 'round the house with nothing to do
But to sit around the house and think about you
Sittin her strumming this old guitar
Nursing my booze and cursing my scars
And sitting 'round the house thinking 'bout you

I sip my drink. I pet the dog
Neither of us moves
The rain beats out a light staccato
On the windows and the roof
The drip-drop rhythm pours through my brain
And I dream I'm dancing with you again
But, in the end, it's nothing more than rain

Well, I'm sitting 'round the house with nothing to do
But to sit around the house and think about you
Sittin her strumming this old guitar
Nursing my booze and cursing my scars
And sitting 'round the house thinking 'bout you

I leave the pain of the past behind
And dream of seeing you again
To see the way your lips curl 'round your smile
To feel the touch of your hand
To fall into your deep, dark eyes
Till I'm finally claimed by my prize
Never to be heard from again

Well, I'm sitting 'round the house with nothing to do
But to sit around the house and think about you
Sittin her strumming this old guitar
Nursing my booze and cursing my scars
And sitting 'round the house thinking 'bout you
