This is the best song ever! lol ^-^ Best country song anyway! It's my version of whiskey lullaby... Not much of a difference, though...

Whiskey Lullaby

I put him out like the burning end of a midnight cigarette.
I broke his heart.
He spent his whole life trying to forget.
They watched him drink his pain away a little at a time.
But he never could get drunk enough to get me off his mind.
Until the night...

He put the bottle to his head and pulled the trigger,
And finally drank away my memory.
Life is short but this time, it was bigger,
Than the strentgh he had to get up off his knees.
They found him with his face down in the pillow,
With a note that said I'll love her till I die.
As they buried him beneath the willow,
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby.


The rumors flew but nobody knew how much I blamed myself,
For years and years.
I tried to hide the whiskey on my breath.
I finally drank my pain away a little at a time,
But I never could get drunk enough to get him off my mind.
Until the night...

I put the bottle to my head and pulled the trigger,
And finally drank away his memory.
Life is short but this time, it was bigger,
Than the strength I had to get up off my knees.
They found me with my face down in the pillow,
Clinging to his picture for dear life.
They buried me next to him beneath the willow,
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby.

I made this poem up last night so, I hope you all like it!

I'm sitting here in the pouring rain,
Shaking from the cold and the pain.
A mysterious figure appears in the night,
And wraps its arms around me tight.

I turn around and see that it's you,
And I wrap my arms around you, too.
You lean in and give me a kiss.
I realize that it's you that I miss.

Our lips part and I close my eyes.
I start to think of all your lies.
How could you do that to me?
I tell you to let me be.

You hug me and go inside the house.
I watch you quietly like a mouse.
I begin to cry as the storm begins.
Just then the midnight bells begin ringing.

I lay there, drowning in my thoughts.
All of the demons I have fought,
Come back, making me beg for mercy.
I pray for my soul to be free.

The storm stops as I lay there.
You run out and stroke my hair.
As you pick me up and put me in our bed,
You realize that something's wrong, I'm dead.

You hold me in your arms and gentle touch my face.
You realize my love for you was never erased.
You sit there, trying to hold back your tears,
Because you lied to me all of these years.

Let this be a lesson to all the people who lie to their loved ones.
