Whiskey Into Tears

Lyrics and Music by Susan Cattaneo and Scarlet Keys

I took a drink
Then it took me
To the bottom of a bottle of Jim Beam
It took my fear, it took my pain
It took my laughter and my hope, yeah it wanted everything

As I bow my head over this glass
Let it be my last

Turn this whiskey into tears
Help unravel all the years I wasted
Freedom tasted
That never fed my soul
Turn this shadow into light
Make this twisted spirit right somehow
Take this heart and let it feel
Turn this whiskey into tears

I took a drink
Then it took me
To a place where I could drown the memory
A clean escape, a heart that’s safe
But it couldn’t fill the emptiness or resurrect my dreams

It’s just a demon in a glass
And It don’t change the past

Turn this whiskey into tears
Help unravel all the years I wasted
Freedom tasted
That never fed my soul
Turn this shadow into light
Make this twisted spirit right somehow
Take this heart and let it feel
Turn this whiskey into tears

I’ve been down on the rocks,
Now I’m down on my knees
And if this prayer is within your reach

Turn this whiskey into tears
Help unravel all the years I wasted
Freedom tasted
That never fed my soul
Turn this shadow into light
Make this twisted spirit right somehow
Take this heart and let it feel
Turn this whiskey into tears

I took a drink
And it took me
