You and the Bottle

I know that you and the bottle are buddies since way back when
you say that whiskey stood by you, when you couldn't find a friend
but sweetheart, I can't help but worry
you need it more each passing day
and when you crawl inside the bottle
the best of you just crawls away

Chorus: Where does your mind go, and where does your pride go,
and why can't you smile anymore?
You say you get high, but there's tears in your eyes
why would a friend make you cry?
When you and the bottle are talking,
man to man and eye to eye,
you think it's truth that you're sharing,
but honey, you're just swapping lies
it tells you there's nothing I give you the two of you can't do without
Darlin', your dear old friend the bottle doesn't know what it's talkin' about

Chorus: Where does your mind go, and where does your pride go,
and why can't you smile anymore?
You say you get high, but there's tears in your eyes
honey, I'd call it low

One day the bottle will call you down a road that runs only one way,
and if your friendship with the bottle means that much I can't stand in your way
while its hold on you keeps gettin' stronger,
I still love you and I have to say
when you crawl inside the bottle,
the best of you just crawls away.

Chorus: Where does your mind go,
and where does your pride go, and why can't you smile anymore?
You say you get high, but there's tears in your eyes

why would a friend make you cry? When you crawl inside the bottle, the best of you just crawls away.

The part "when you crawl inside the bottle, the best of you just crawls away" is really evocative.
