Lyrics:

Born with a silver spoon
Only child, you hung the moon
Always got what you desired
So why's your life's so uninspired?

Your Daddy had a big career
But Mommy drank as night grew near
Your glass was half empty
But in your hand, it is always full.

Married a football star
You had it all, the house, the car
Leisure lunches you enjoy
A nanny for your girl and boy

But Daddy had his own affairs
So Mommy sneaked a drink upstairs
Your glass was half empty
But in your hand, it is always full.

You don't think we see that
bottle hidden in your car
You don't think we know how
sad and lonely you truly are

You don't think we smell the
stench of bourbon on your breath
You don't think we notice
your soul is dying a painful death
your soul is dying a painful death
your soul is dying...

Now the life that you enjoyed
Is gone and he is unemployed
No fancy galas on the hill
Just gamblin' debts and unpaid bills

Your friends are nowhere to be found
Since news of his baby got around

Your soul is half empty
Your heart is half empty
Your glass is half empty
But in your hand, it is always full.
