Love Will Win The Day


I got a jacky/Bourbon in my left hand, got a Johnny/Whisky in my right
Got you spinnin’ ’round my mind, I’ve bin sittin’ here all night.
Give my level-best to forget you, by poisonin’ my brain,
but my memories are stubborn, branded deep by your bright flame.

Got a thousand reasons to leave you,
just a single one to stay.
Guess the power of love is too strong,

‘cos love will win the day.

My friends ask if I’m happy, ‘n’ I flash a practised smile
‘n’ talk about the weather like it’s goin’ out of style.
But they know just as I do, I’ve got something on my mind,
an’ though I try to hide it, they ain’t dumb an’ they ain’t blind.

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

Our friends have kids ‘n’ break up, but we stay true an’ wed,
guess they suffered slings an’ arrows while I was fighting my own head.
The years have turned to decades, our hair is thin ‘n’ grey,
as I drink my double whisky I’ve just one thing left to say:

PRE-CHORUS

Got you spinnin’ ’round my mind, I’ve been drinkin’ hard all night.
