Living For The Night lyrics

(George Strait, Bubba Strait, Dean Dillon)

Every day's a lifetime without you
Hard to get through since you've gone
So I do the only thing I know how to
To get by: I'm living for the night

I've drawn all the curtains in this old house
To keep the sun out and off of my face
Friends call in to check in because I've checked out
I tell them I'm fine: I'm just living for the night

[Chorus:]
Daylight can't hide the tears I cry
The pain the came with your goodbye
The memories that keep me out of sight
Every night I venture out into those neon arms
That hold me tight...
I'm living for the night

I'm a whole lot easier to talk to
When I've had a few; I settle down
The whiskey kills the man you've turned me into
And I come alive: I'm living for the night.

[Chorus]
I'm living for the night

Every day's a lifetime without you...
