Whiskey and Smoke

from We Shall Be Monsters by Bryan Dunn



It's a rainy night outside a downtown bar
You just stopped in to forget who you are
You got a couple more dollars than you do when you're broke
In a place that smells like whiskey and smoke

Your eyes meet another's with a hint of a smile
You walk slowly over and you talk for a while
There's a soft little laugh, at some private joke
Covered up in whiskey and smoke

Oh, oh, oh, have you been lonely too?
Oh, oh, oh, I don't want love, I just want you

There's the cover of darkness, there's a whisper or two
A dirty little story about what you want to do
The touch of a hand, really more of a stroke
A kiss that tastes like whiskey and smoke

In the grey light of morning you wake up to yourself
No names, no numbers, no anything else
But the memory lingers at the back of your throat
A little bit of whiskey and smoke
Just a hint of whiskey and smoke
A memory of whiskey and smoke
