I got a bottle of whiskey staring me in the face on the table it is saying please please please please drink me all by yourself I got a group of rowdy girlfriends staring me in the face in my doorway yelling at me please please please please come play put away your broken heart for another day Let's do some muthafuckin cocaine to help us stay up all night and run around the town find us some new young guns to get me to come around So I can forget about you cuz I can't forget about you so I will get drunk with my friends till every cent of our hard-earned money has been spent On some muthafuckin cocaine To help us stay up all night run around the town we'll go down when the sun comes up who needs love when you've got drugs Hey Hey I got a guitar staring me in the face four in the morning she is saying drink that whiskey in your cup get some help from that good stuff so I can stay up all night and write more songs about you cuz I got more songs about you than I can write alone tonight gonna need some help from my good friend old lady white I need some muthafuckin cocaine

I can feel it on my fingers Breathe it into my lungs Traces of it linger On my tongue The heaviness, the bitterness The emptiness it hums Leaves our faces drawn and worn Like the end is gonna come I could sing you the blues but it wouldn't seem right See I got some news I've seen the light You look like sunshine Through the rain You bring me pleasure Through the pain I can feel it on my fingers Breathe it into my lungs Traces of it linger Like whiskey On my tongue And Baby you will meet somebody new But that is alright Cuz baby I got you all the time I just look up And I see my sunshine Through the rain You bring me pleasure Through the pain Sing it in my ears

Maybe the rain won't come down so hard tonight Maybe the rain won't drown us tonight Come inside I've got a bottle of good wine Come inside I've got a bottle of good times I've got you and that's all I need tonight Usually I'd spend a night like this alone Listening to the thunder roll It's nice to have a familiar smile around To smile back at You know you're pretty to look at From afar And right up close Your face reminds me of something I don't know But I'd like to know Forever You've got the nicest face I think I've ever seen At least after a good bottle of wine.

They say that you can come back But you can never go home They say that you can come back But you can never go home What they say may be true But I'll always be home with you They say home is where the heart is For now its where I lay my head Home is where the heart is But now its where I lay my head My head may be gone, its true But my heart says I'm home with you In my heart I'm home with you They say all roads lead back home But at times you'll lose your way They say all roads lead back home But at times you'll lose your way I get lost sometimes, its true But I'll find my way back to you I'll always come home to you They say that I'm a liar That I will cheat and break your heart You're a fool to love a liar Who will leave and break your heart What they say just ain't true I'll always go home with you I'll always come home to you I'll always be home with you They say that you can come back But you can never go home They say that you can come back But you can never go home What they say just ain't true Cuz I'll always be home with you In my heart I'm home with you I'll always be home with you

Your face is sunshine baby Can't bear to see you cry I know I'm leavin' you again To chase these silly dreams of mine The clouds are scrawlin out the same old tired lines Goodbye I love you Darlin kiss my lips just one last time As my plane begins to taxi As your taxi leaves my plane I am with you in the backseat I'll be with you on the train Wave and smile and bless me as we pull away With you I leave my little heart, I leave my heart in brooklyn in the rain And when you get home baby Please promise you won't cry I promise I will call and text and photograph and write Gotta keep the lifeline open To reach what I left behind Keep it safe and warm and dry Because without it I will die Though it may be sunny here in Sturgeon Bay A cloud covers my name Because I left my heart in Brooklyn in the rain Bridges, boundaries and borderlines They may keep me from you but only for a time Keep my treasure warm and dry while I'm away And I'll be home before you know it To get my heart I left in Brooklyn in the rain Left my heart in Bushwick, Dumbo, Bed Stuy.
