Damage

by Rachel Wammack

I’m a bartender
Best friend pretender
I make drinks to help forget and help remember
Beautiful humans
I am a student
And I’ve seen it from all sides winning and losing

Oh, love can do
Love can do
Love can do some damage

She was his first wife
She was his whole life
He whispers through the whiskey that I’ve got her eyes
And then the others
The cancer, the mother
And the prodigal just trying to find some shelter

Oh, love can do
Love can do
Love can do some damage
Oh, love can do
Love can do
Love can do some damage

I listen and I smile
The breaking up to making up to walking down the aisle
We try to manage
From the cradle to the grave
Getting lost and getting saved
Love’s always been the same in any language

I’m a bartender
If you came in here
I’d pretend that I’ve forgotten to remember
All of the beauty
Beautiful ruins
And tonight I’ll make a toast to me and you and

And all that love can do
Love can do
Love can do some damage
Oh, all that love can do
I still love you
And love can do some damage
Oh, some damage
