I'VE BEEN GOING HOME WITH 
"JUST ENOUGH WHISKEY"

Partying, guilt, and just enough whiskey

Song 3: Just Enough Whiskey
 

You made it to stop three. Care for a drink or ten?

A big theme that runs through this album is one of guilt. It was hard leaving loved ones behind and I couldn't help but feel like I abandoned them at times. The toughest feeling was breaking up with my girlfriend of eight years. Yeah we had our ups and downs and it was for the best, but that girl loved me and she was my best friend. How could I do that to her?? My favorite way to cope with the guilt was to distract myself by going to the bar with Steven. We were really getting into whiskey.  It was a great distraction while actually at the bar, but once I got home and was by myself, all those feelings of guilt would come rushing back...

"I've been going home with just enough whiskey, making me forget that maybe you miss me"

- Just Enough Whiskey

Meaning Behind the Song

"Just Enough Whiskey" is about drowning your guilt and problems with distractions instead of facing the problems head on, and fixing them at the root source. It's about taking the easy way out, and dealing with the negative emotional results that come with that 💙

Lyrics:

I've been going home with just enough whiskey
Making me forget that maybe you miss me
Swiping my way through a Friday night
Leave you on read and turn out the lights

Whiskey at midnight it's
Too cold think twice if
I let you get inside inside
I might not lose
My mind tonight

Oh shit I made a scene
Feels good to just be me
Hurry up we're out of time so
Hit the cig and bum a ride

I've been going home with just enough whiskey
Making me forget that maybe you miss me
Swiping my way through a Friday night
Leave you on read and turn out the lights

I wonder sometimes if you would forgive me
I could reach out but nah it's too risky
Keeping my thoughts in my head tonight
Leave you on read and turn out the lights

Meet me at midnight I'm
Too gone to think twice if
You let me get inside
You just might lose
Your mind tonight

Oh shit we made a scene
Spilling all over me
Hurry up we're out of time
It's you and me alone tonight

I've been going home with just enough whiskey
Making me forget that maybe you miss me
Swiping my way through a Friday night
Leave you on read and turn out the lights

I wonder sometimes if you would forgive me
I could reach out but nah it's too risky
Keeping my thoughts in my head tonight
Leave you on read and turn out the lights

I'll see your ghost tonight
Each time I close my eyes
It happens every time

I'll see your ghost tonight
We'll fall straight from the sky
Wake up and realize

I've been going home with just enough whiskey
Making me forget that maybe you miss me
Swiping my way through a Friday night
Leave you on read and turn out the lights

I wonder sometimes if you would forgive me
I could reach out but nah it's too risky
Keeping my thoughts in my head tonight
Leave you on read and turn out the lights

Forgive I wish you'd forgive me
Forgive I wish you'd forgive me
Forgive I wish you'd forgive me
Forgive
I wish you'd forgive me
