"Whiskey And Wine" as written by and Nick Hexum Douglas Vincent Martinez....
I know what you're thinking
I know I did you wrong
But I just got this feeling
Baby please hold on
The way we used to dance
We forgot the steps
We both lost our balance
Now I drink to forget

Whiskey and wine
Killing me shot at a time

You pour the liquor in the cup and then you swirl it around
Cause, you don't remember if you're up or you're down (up or you're down)
A temporary fix
Or moment's elixir
Yeah and I will say
I put my hand up in the air and I won't do it again, naw (put my hand)
Can't promise it because I don't pretend to know (to know what)
What the price I pay
Yeah yeah
Not a remedy for a thing and I will do it again, naw

Whiskey and wine
Killing me shot at a time

Whiskey and wine
Killing me shot at a time

    General CommentAlcohol is his temporary fix for the pain. Pain from a significant other who is no longer around.

    General Commentalcohol did not ruin the relationship. This song is about him simply reminiscing and using alcohol as a release.

    General CommentTo Ilayaraaja1986: Drink habitually legally, then belch out your opinion. Until then, watch your fucking mouth!!!

    S.A. Marinez circa 1995 my ass!!! And while you're at it, try a 15+ year career in music, then again, watch your fucking mouth - before you pipe your stupid ass up again!!!

    Bitch!!!

    General CommentI agree to what n3j1y1 said: This was a relationship with good times and fights mixed, and no matter how good it makes you someone feel, if you keep fighting and coming back all the time, you end up ruining the relationship

    General CommentLISTEN, scottgirl97. They've changed a lot and then-- a lot, a lot! I love 311, especially what they once were. Sure, what's in the future for their view is many, MANY changes. And I support them. I love their self-renegade sounds. That's what makes 311. But you gotta ask yourself, would this song really still exist if no money was made... reconsider everything, you know? The only thing 'I' can prove about that is that there is no proof.

    Also, I don't need to be a guitar virtuoso to appreciate good music. I have ears too, you know!? And honestly (nothing in life is above that), I would listen to this song, that is, if there were no lyrics. You can't disturb the course of T & P & C & D & Nick. And if what I said before sounded like a belch, I'm just a funky child with some words on my tongue. Golly gosh. Esé Lives!
