my own worst enemy, by lit

can we forget about the things i said when i was drunk 
 didn't mean to call you that
i can't remember what was said and what you threw at me
please tell me 

please tell me why
the car is in the front yard and i'm
sleeping with my clothes on
came in through the window last night
and you're gone gone 

it's no surprise to me i am my own worst enemy
cause every now and then i kick the living shit out of me
a smoke alarm is going off and there's a cigarette
still burning

please tell me why
the car is in the front yard and i'm
sleeping with my clothes on
came in through the window last night
and you're gone gone
please tell me why
the car is in the front yard and i'm
sleeping with my clothes on
came in through the window last night
and you're gone gone 

it's no surprise to me i am my own worst enemy
cause every now and then i kick the living shit out of me
can we forget about the things i said when i was drunk
i didn't mean to call you that
