Tears Into Wine

  • The gun is loaded when the glass is full
    Down the hatch and the trigger's pulled
    Off the wagon and back onto the stool
    I know that when I stare into your eyes
    I can see all the years of lies
    Ghosts and demons you never exorcised

    All the friends that I've ever known
    Are the streetlamps I follow home
    And I'm in the crowd but I'm all alone

    Oh Lord, I just can't
    Tear the moon from the stars tonight
    Twist my arm like a knife tonight
    And if you wanna leave that's alright
    Well I'll just turn these tears into wine

    His fate was written on a neon sign
    A DUI never changed his mind
    He got hooked like a fish caught on a line
    You never gave yourself a chance to shine
    Your destination's a chalk outline
    And when you get to the gates you'll be denied

    All the friends that I've ever known
    Are the streetlamps I follow home
    And I'm in the crowd but I'm all alone

    Oh Lord, I just can't
    Tear the moon from the stars tonight
    Twist my arm like a knife tonight
    And if you wanna leave that's alright
    Well I'll just turn these tears into wine

    Tear the moon from the stars tonight
    Twist my arm like a knife tonight
    And if you wanna leave that's alright
    Well I'll just turn these tears into wine

    All the friends that I've ever known
    Are the streetlamps I follow home
    The tide keeps pulling me down
    I try to reach higher ground
    I'll never give up and drown

    Even though I just can't
    Tear the moon from the stars tonight
    Twist my arm like a knife tonight
    And if you wanna leave that's alright
    Well I'll just turn these tears into wine

    Tear the moon from the stars tonight
    Twist my arm like a knife tonight
    And if you wanna leave that's alright
    Well I'll just turn these tears into wine
    Tears into wine
    Tears into wine
    Well, I'll just turn these tears into wine Writer/s: AARON SOLOWONIUK, BEN KOWALEWICZ, IAN D'SA, JON GALLANT
