about

Dedicated to my friend EVR, a hard-drinking and most excellent songwriting fool.

lyrics

Darling, you seen me at my worst...
Broke down and run to seed but still these first things first,
Like how you always find,
In a feeling as sublime,
Whiskey love,
It tells me you're the same.

Still asleep while outside the sun it glows,
Warm dreams of Irish things shots lined up in a row,
I recall a childhood rhyme,
Suddenly I'm feeling fine,
Seems this whiskey love,
Chased me through my mind.

I swore the last time,
That before I took another drink,
I'd die and so I slowly go
Just where that whiskey takes me.

You're a friend that'll help me down these stairs,
Tuck me in turn off the light when no one else there cares.
And as I slowly simplify,
One last friend to see me dying
Of this whiskey love,
That stayed true to the end.

This whiskey love...
This whiskey love...
This whiskey love...
