<p>Featured in the 2008 movie, Green River and in the live off Broadway play, Bartender.</p>
<p>I was a Freshman at NYU and used to play the piano in the basement of Brittany Hall whenever I got inspired. &nbsp;Those days, it was a lot!</p>
<p>Ironically, I did play in a lot of divey piano bars in NYC where I encountered people whose lives were similar to the subject of my song.</p>


<p>It's been a long day and I've got to unwind<br />Put down my briefcase and loosen my tie<br />Hey Mister, have you got a light<br />So I can smoke a cigarette on this lonely night?</p>
<p>Hey bartender, can you pour me a drink? Scotch!<br />I'm feeling restless and I don't want to think<br />I would appreciate a kindly remark when I'm<br />drinking in the dark.</p>
<p>Nobody loves me, that's the way that it seems<br />And when I'm sleeping, I'm haunted by my dreams<br />I may have given up the life I could have led<br />But what have I got instead?</p>
<p>I've got a dreary job from nine until five<br />That pays a measly wage that keeps me alive<br />And my apartment's always empty and bare <br />Hey mister bartender, do you care?</p>
<p>Sinatra's on the radio, I love to hear him sing<br />It seem that I'm the only one who's ever listening<br />And maybe tomorrow I'll go walking through the park instead of drinking in the dark.</p>
<p>I really wish you'd turn the lamp down low<br />and pour yourself a drink before I go<br />I just can't seem to face the morning light <br />so I'm drinking in the dark tonight</p>
<p>Oh yeah, I'm drinking in the dark tonight.</p>
