lyrics

Whiskey doesn't mix well with cocaine. If I'm the bottle and you're the powder, could we keep each other sane? I could never hold you, for you'd always blow away and you could not consume me, for you'd dissolve in all my pain.

Were I your mistress and you a married man, would our love be silenced or would you ask me for my hand? And could we still find freedom, though the world may see us damned?
Well, our times a wastin', for we are each a grain of sand.

Were I a carpenter, then would you be my cross? And I would carry you and I'd count the world as loss. But me, I'm not Jesus. No, I could not pay your cost. But I'll carry you to River Jordan and pray we make it safe across.

Were I a willow tree, then you would be my roots. And we'd stand firmly planted as we'd drink the morning dew. And our love would flourish, until the axe split us in two. But love there's no strong a death that could keep me 'way from you.

No there's no strong a death that could keep me 'way from you.
