Cheers Darlin' Lyrics

by Damien Rice

Cheers darlin'
Here's to you and your lover boy
Cheers darlin'
I got years to wait 'round for you

Cheers darlin'
I've got your wedding bells in my ear
Cheers darlin'
You give me three cigarettes to smoke my tears away

And I die when you mention his name
And I lied, I should have kissed you
When we were runnin' in the rains

What am I, darlin'?
A whisper in your ear
A piece of your cake

What am I, darlin?
The boy you can fear
Or your biggest mistake

Cheers darlin'
Here's to you and your lover man
Cheers darlin'
I just hang around and eat from a can

Cheers darlin'
I got a ribbon of green on my guitar
Cheers darlin'
I got a beauty queen to sit not very far from here

I die when he comes 'round
To take you home, I'm too shy
I should have kissed you when we were alone

What am I, darlin'?
A whisper in your ear
A piece of your cake

What am I, darlin?
The boy you can fear
Or your biggest mistake

Oh what am I?
What am I, darlin'?
I got years to wait
