lyrics

The Bottle
(Omowale)

I got home a little early from work.
Where you going
With that bag in your hand?
Were you even gonna say a word?
Just gonna walk out
On one helluva man.

I try so hard to forgive you,
But I just can’t get over the way that you treated me
Now I’m crying, “Hey, bartender! Can you pour me a drink?”
To wash away my blues, and my memories of you

Woman I can’t drink you out of my head
But I can’t put the bottle down.
Woman I can’t drink you out of my head
But I can’t put the bottle down.

Sometimes I wanna call you on the phone,
Block my number, and call you all out your name.
But I won’t call you while I’m stoned
And I’m so damn drunk
Drunk with gin, drunk with shame.

I try so hard to forget you
But I just can’t let go of the past, and what you meant to me
I’ll take one more. I’m hoping maybe this one last drink
Will wash away these blues
Girl, I’ve tried, and tried and tried, but

Woman I can’t drink you out of my head
But I can’t put the bottle down.
Woman I can’t drink you out of my head
But I can’t put the bottle down.

You say, I’ve had too many,
but man, it still ain’t enough
Because I can’t get her out of my head
Can you give me one more? One more? One more?

Woman I can’t drink you out of my head
But I can’t put the bottle down.
Woman I can’t drink you out of my head
But I can’t put the bottle down.

about

Nadir Omowale Detroit, Michigan

“To label Nadir as a neo-soul artist would be neglecting his rock roots; to call him a rock artist would be overlooking his hip-hop and jazz influences. Fully encompassing all the talents that Nadir possesses would be comparable to expanding the mathematical term Pi to its last digit.” – The Michigan Chronicle, Detroit, Michigan ... more
