    This song talks about a woman sitting at a bar drinking heavily lamenting about the old days when she spots a guy that looks and talks like the type of guy she wishes she had found when she was much younger. She then regrets many of the mistakes she had made in the past and thinks this new guy may be her salvation from her current life, to keep her from drinking and whoring.
