The Shape of Whiskey

The Shape of Whiskey ©2018 Robert George BMI

Well, I met her in Atlantic City,
She was charming, beautiful and witty
And we’d make love along the ocean side
But she kept her secrets buried,
I didn’t find out she was married
Till my heart was swept out with the tide

And when love was taken by the restless sea
It was waves of whiskey that returned to me

Now the midnight lights above the ocean’s roar
Are like starfish on a dark, eternal shore
Cos I let myself get tangled
In a fiery love triangle
And it left my fortune cold and misty
She’s not someone I’ll forget
Time’s a circle of regret
Just like the shape of whiskey

Now the moonlight’s bathing in the ocean
And it’s moving with the sensual motion
Of a woman with a stolen kiss to hide

She casts a shadow on my loneliness
That reveals me like a Rorschach test

And the midnight lights above the ocean’s roar
Are like starfish on a dark, eternal shore
Cos I let myself get tangled
In a fiery love triangle
And it left my fortune cold and misty
She’s not someone I’ll forget
Time’s a circle of regret
Just like the shape of whiskey

O she’s not someone I’ll forget
Time’s a circle of regret
Just like the shape of whiskey

Like the shape of whiskey
The shape of whiskey
No, I can’t escape
The shape of whiskey…
