lyrics

No regrets, it's what most people say
But I regret these cigarettes I've been smoking every day
Stressful times can cause a man to change
But with every drag I can feel my troubles fade away
I'm still young but I have a life worth of debt
Pockets lacking money, the bank breathing down my neck
And some day they will be expecting it all back
But for now I have a few left in this pack

Some day I'll look back and wonder
If I could do it all again
Could I have put myself in a better place
Could I become a better man

Nor fears, it's how many wish to live
If only it was that simple, you see the simple thing is
This bottle holds my courage and once it hits my lips
I'm not afraid of anything and I'll tell you how it is
And I'm still young but I've made my mistakes
Lost a few good friends and let my lover get away
Oh my darling, I can still see her face
She couldn't stand seeing my drunk again
I wish I'd never been brave

Some day I'll look back and wonder
If I could do it all again
Could I have put myself in a better place
Could I become a better man
