Martini Kiss

Album: Let It Enfold You (2004)


  • This song is about an alcoholic: "There's poison in my drinking glass, don't stop just sip it down." It's also about how his drinking affects his relationship with his girlfriend: "So in love with me like sand to wet feet." She doesn't stay with him no matter what. "The pawns will fade away, the king's at his checkmate" means that she most likely left him and he's done without her.
