    Once I lived a life of wine and roses I drank a lot
    back then so one concern
    Success for me lay just around the corner
    I thought my social friends could help me make me turn
    But now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses a
    victim of the drunken life I chose
    Now all my social friends look down their noses
    'Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose

    I stood by and watched the bottle take control of me
    The turn I made was not the turn I'd planned
    I watched my social standings slip away from me
    Yes I watched the bottle slowly take command
    Oh now I'm paying for the days...
    Yes I kept the wine and threw away the rose
