BOTTLE OF JAMES

You only kiss me
When your breath is stained with whiskey
Stumblin’ in my arms
Bright lights, big city

Shot glass blues
You buy your liquor
And I’ll pay your dues
I’m such a sinner
But ya know that you are too

Now pull your body close
And let me inside
The fire’s on your lips
But the pleasure’s all mine
The night is always young
Forget what ya do
The preacher says it’s wrong
But he’s drinkin’ me too
They keep crossin’ it, they keep crossin’ it
They keep crossin’ the line
My kiss is like a drug
You welcome the pain
You never had a love
You never had a love
Like a bottle of James

You’re such a rebel
‘Til you go drinkin’ with the devil
You’ll confess to anything
White light, hell’s angel

Don’t black out
You’re under oath
Until the stars go down
This shit is gold
I’m gonna hold ya to your words

Now pull your body close
And let me inside
The fire’s on your lips
But the pleasure’s all mine
The night is always young
Forget what ya do
The preacher says it’s wrong
But he’s drinkin’ me too
They keep crossin’ it, they keep crossin’ it
They keep crossin’ the line
My kiss is like a drug
You welcome the pain
You never had a love
You never had a love
Like a bottle of James

With God as your witness
And me as your weakness
Tell me what ya want, don’t try to keep it a secret
A skeleton closet
Manhattan is a watchin’
And Jameson don’t love you, he just wants what’s in your pocket

Now pull your body close
And let me inside
The fire’s on your lips
But the pleasure’s all mine
The night is always young
Forget what ya do
The preacher says it’s wrong
But he’s drinkin’ me too
They keep crossin’ it, they keep crossin’ it
They keep crossin’ the line
My kiss is like a drug
You welcome the pain
You never had a love
You never had a love
Like a bottle of James
