about

Ever been taken advantage of? This Song expresses those emotions and feelings from my personal experiences in the music business.

lyrics

I was your monkey on a string
You moved your hands just to watch me swing
Yea you fed me make-believe things
Till i couldn't see,dream from reality

If you looked inside my mind
You couldn't tell me what you'd went inside to find
Yea i hate to say its true
But i got off on you telling me what do


Whiskey and Wine
Find your way to my lips
Help ease the world around me
That exists
Like a big eyed fish in a small pool
Yea i took your bait without a clue
Of what you might pull me into

You stared at me just like the stars in the sky
And from the dark of the moon you came like a thief in the night
To catch me bye surprise
Tried to take away my pride & joy
Stitched up inside
But when the Devil gets a hold
Hes never truly satisfied
Till your faith has lost its zeal
And you wont need a crystal ball to know
When the morning shows its Face
The light will guide you on your way
To better things
and serenity
Until then my brother
ill be screaming out loud

Whiskey and Wine
Find your way to my lips
Help ease the world around me
That exists
Like a big eyed fish in a small pool
Yea i took your bait without a clue
Of what you might pull me into

You don't have to turn on the Sun
To realize when you've hurt-en someone
You get your chance then you could lose someone
And it could be to late
It could be to late
oh no no
It could be too late
It could be too late
It could be too late
It could be too late
It could be too late
yea yea yea yea oh
