about

Pretty self-explanatory.

lyrics

I give you a call, you never answer at all
Flunking out of school again
You say “Can I borrow some money?
I’ll pay you back when my check comes in
When my daddy’s check comes in again”

Your drinking is breaking my heart
Your drinking is breaking my heart
Your drinking is breaking my heart

You hate yourself for lying
But now that seems to be all you know how to do
Can’t look me in the eye without defiance
Or you would crumble and cry
The shame makes you want to die

Your drinking is breaking my heart
Your drinking is breaking my heart
Your drinking is breaking my heart

All I’ve ever felt is love for you
And that will be true from the cradle to the grave
But can you love yourself?
I don’t know what else is going to save you
And I want my baby brother back

Your drinking is breaking my heart
Your drinking is breaking my heart
Your drinking is breaking my heart

about

The Gretchen Phillips Xperience Austin, Texas

I got your lezzie rock right here! Since 1984, keeping it real in Austin, TX. What do I mean by "real"? Transgressive, literate, unapologetic, and unafraid. Plus fun. Don't forget fun. Even when it's sad, let's look for the fun.
