Let the past mingle with present
Merrily, the clink of a glass
The same whiskey bubbling around
Fogging your breath the ride back home
He likes it too, the same ol brand
And drunkenly slurs old film songs
At times he even looks like you,
Charming smile on a cocky face
I wonder what these choices mean
Chasing replicas of mistakes
Same old hangouts, same bartender
They see me with a different you
