Bright Eyes – Well Whiskey lyrics
I get my whiskey from a well
Except on holidays when it's the top shelf
But tonight I don't mind if I spend a little more
'cause you're a tolerant woman and the world is at war

I know you witnessed my decline
You used to push back the darkness like a flood light
But tonight that's a secret like the soul of a whore
But if you want to have fun you'll just have to ignore

Now I let my troubles solve themselves
I used to get involved but I'm just no help
But tonight let's pretend that we're just like we were
Let me stay 'til the morning I will sleep on the floor

And we can talk in circles no dollar figures
Just what is owed or paid
And we can make predictions I know you see the future
And I agree
And we agree
Tonight's not happening

When I got dry as a desert I got mean
I was as lonely and empty as a canteen
With no anesthetic you're bound to be sore
But tonight I am drinkin' all peaceful and warm

And just when I got fed up with that grey sky
The sun came out of no where like a bar fight
And it knocked out the wind and it bruised me with light
And I felt grateful for living just like I feel tonight

But I know you feel safer in a group
Where you could be anyone or they could be you
But tonight we'll take risks that you can afford
You still have bars on your windows and a hole in your door

We can talk in circles around a dirty mirror
Night trickles down our throats
And we can make the timeline to last our whole lives
We don't know
But no one knows
What's further up the road

Just wait and see
Just wait and see
All in time
All in time
