lyrics

Here’s a story that’s harrowing. Is this who you wanted to be?
I need to find a place to be alone with my favorite drink.
That’s when it comes out.
All those things I think about,
like all that stupid shit you used to say.
The good times, the bad times,
all those times we should have died,
and how I had to leave the masquerade.
I like the way that whiskey burns.
One of these days you’re gonna learn life leave you on the curb.
I like the way the whiskey burns.
When I came home I realized I had friends I didn’t recognize.
And with you, it was clear. There was nothing behind glazed eyes.
And when it came time for me to say goodbye,
I found you passed out on the floor.
A piss soaked, coked mess. I prayed, I must confess.
I don’t want to deal with that no more.
I like the way that whiskey burns.
One of these days you’re gonna learn that life will leave you on the curb.
I like the way the whiskey burns.
When John called, just to say,
“He’s throwing his life away.”
I didn’t know what to think, it just drove me to drink.
That’s when it comes out, all those things I think about.
Like all those things I wished I would have said.
Her hopes, her dreams. They don’t seem to mean a thing.
This is the hardest thing for me. Do this for yourself, you can’t rely on me.
