about

Recorded in the Spring of 2015 as a stand-alone single, this song deals primarily with the relationship between alcohol and loneliness.

lyrics

i don't wanna talk about the things i had to do without your love,
to keep me sane to keep me going...
but i was sick and damn tired of missing you wandering like an apparition through the gray and lonely corridors of my torment.

if i fall inside the well of this bottle,
you can bet with fingers raised to your God it'll be your memory that's tripping me in the first place.
i'll admit - your pot-shots don't miss me when you smile and say "it looks like whiskey's your only friend."

johnnie walker does what johnnie walker says that he will do...
and that's more than i can say for you.
he may not love me and he may not hold me through the night -
but at least i sleep alright.

i don't wanna deal with the things i know i'd do to win back your love -
it drives me insane and makes me nauseous.
when you packed your bags and you left me -
you made damn sure no one else could bed me...
without the thought of you drowning out my subconscious.

if i fall inside the well of this bottle,
you can bet with fingers raised to your God it'll be your memory that's tripping me in the first place.
i'll admit - your pot-shots don't miss me when you smile and say "it looks like whiskey's your only friend."

johnnie walker does what johnnie walker says that he will do...
and that's more than i can say for you.
he may not love me and he may not hold me through the night -
but at least i sleep alright.

you packed your bags and you left me a week ago this morning.
i'm drinking and wearing my sunday best.

johnnie walker does what johnnie walker says that he will do...
and that's more than i can say for you.
he may not love me and he may not hold me through the night -
but neither do you, so that's alright.

johnnie walker does what johnnie walker says that he will do...
and that's more than i can say for you.
he may not love me and he may not hold me through the night -
but at least i sleep alright.

at least i sleep alright...
