Four Years Lyrics

I take a shot of Jameson or Jack to start the morning off with old friends

I'll celebrate like it's the anniversary of the day that we first met

I've been practicing our eulogy, separated all our things

I took my name off of the lease,...

    The last 5 lines look like they came from the song Yellow Angels, to which he blacked out and crashed. Maybe this (the meaning of the song Four Years) ran through his head while he was unconscious. As said in the interpretation of Yellow Angels, the lines refer to him needing to wake up because he was driving.

    In this song like the many others on this CD Buddy is expressing his feelings towards his ex-girlfriend. When listening to the song you can hear that Buddy is singing about his four year relationship he had with her. The first two lines of the chorus he is saying that it hurts but five years would've hurt more than four. Throughout the rest of the song he goes to explain how liquor is the friend he has right now to turn to which he references to twice. He also goes on to say that now that she is gone his life has fallen apart and the only thing he has left of her is there memories and promises. The second to last verse I believe he wrote towards what would've been there annivesary so that's why he says happy anniversary and that the best gift he gave her was to leave her. The part of the song that really doesn't make that much sense is the lat verse they he sings "wake up your sleeping behind the wheel." I don't understand what that has to do with the song.
