I get my whiskey from a well
Except on holidays, then 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 floodlight
But tonight that's a secret, like the soul of a whore
That if you want to have fun you 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 until the morning, I'll sleep on the floor

And we can talk in circles, no dollar figures
Just what is owed or paid
We can make predictions, I know you see the future
And I agree and we agreed, tonights 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 are bound to be sore
But tonight I'm drinking all peaceful and warm

And just when I got fed up with that gray sky
The sun came out of nowhere 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 could make a time line 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
