Poison and Wine



There are those songs that can make you stop everything you are doing and just listen, absorbing every word, every note. They are the songs that speak to your soul at a primal level, songs written just for you. Other people might say they love the song, too, but you know the song is yours and only yours. This is my song. The lyrics are below, but the voices of Joy Williams and John Paul White of the Civil Wars bring these words to life in such a haunting, soulful way that the words fail without their voices and the music. 

Poison and Wine Lyrics

Civil Wars



You only know what I want you to
I know everything you don't want me to
Oh your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
You think your dreams are the same as mine

Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
I always will

I wish you'd hold me when I turn my back
The less I give the more I get back
Oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don't have a choice but I'd still choose you

Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will

I always will
I always will
I always will
I always will
I always will
