Whiskey And You

There's a bottle on the dresser by your ring
And it's empty so right now I don't feel a thing
And I'll be hurtin' when I wake up on the floor
But I'll be over it by noon
And that's the difference between whiskey and you

Come tomorrow I can walk in any store
It ain't a problem, they'll always sell me more
But your forgiveness, well that's something I can't buy
Ain't a thing that I can do
That's the difference between whiskey and you

One's the devil and one keeps driving me insane
At times I wonder if they ain't both the same
But one's a liar that helps to hide me from my pain
One's a long long bitter truth
And that's the difference between whiskey and you

I've got a problem but it ain't like what you think
I drink because I'm lonesome and I'm lonesome 'cause I drink
But if I don't break down and bring it on myself it'll hit out of the blue
And that's the difference between whiskey and you

One's the devil and one keeps driving me insane
At times I wonder if they ain't both the same
But one's a liar that helps to hide me from my pain
One's a long long bitter truth
And that's the difference between whiskey and you

Oh the difference between whiskey and you

Song facts

"I can see the video for this one in my head. I have loved this song for a really long time. I have known some people similar to the character singing in this song and I've seen how alcoholism can tear up a family/relationship. This song and lyric are so real to me. It's such a sad song and the steel guitar makes it that much more sad. The sadder, the better for me!" - Julie
