I want to drink you away

To coat my nerves in hard liquor

That will protect them from your dull words

I want margarita salt to sting in my veins

I want it to make me burn inside

Like the sight of you never fails to

I want a whiskey lullaby to give me dreams

Where you aren't, where I'm free at last

But I'm afraid that that first sip will

Make me happy, really happy

And you simply won't allow that

And you'll smash the bottle

Before I get another swallow...
