Track Name: Smile Like Wine
I think I will never see someone as beautiful as you.
Your eyes open so wide, your smile is like wine to me now.
Your smile is like wine to me now.
Your smile is like wine to me now.
And then your smile grows, and I float above myself.
It carries me away to a place far from here.
To a place far from here.
To a place far from here.
I think I will never see someone as beautiful as you.
Track Name: You Lied
You said that you loved me. You said that you cared
That you’d never leave me. You’d always be there.
But you lied. But you lied.

Second Verse
You said that you wanted. A better life with me.
But you took my money. And drank all my whisky.
And you lied. And you lied.

And I can’t find the courage that it takes
To change the locks or move away.
I just want to die.
