lyrics

Tea and Bourbon

It’s raining heavy
Running off your body onto the floor
We could talk about anything or nothing at all
They’re not whispering in our ears
Watching us fall to our knees
They’re dancing on those northern lights
Far from city streets

You pour me tea, I’ll pour you Bourbon
(The rain’s not stopping at all, at all, at all)

I know your strength, this storm can’t worsen
(The river might overflow, might overflow)

They’re not whispering in our ears,
Watching us fall to our knees
They’re dancing on those northern lights
Far from this scene
Of scars from years and years

You pour me tea, I’ll pour you Bourbon
(Oh stop you might over pour, might over pour)

I know your strength, this storm can’t worsen
(It’s raining heavier now, heavier now)

You pour me tea, I’ll pour you Bourbon
(The wind is starting to blow and blow and blow)

I know you’re strong, this storm won’t worsen
(Oh please come close I’m so cold)

Wait out the rain
Wait out the pain
And I’ll hold you ‘till your body stops shaking
Wait out the rain
