"Intoxicated Hands" as written by and Damien Jurado....
She took advantage of intoxicated hands
and he pretended to be asleep
but underneath the blankets
their legs linked like a chain

Now come tomorrow morning
how will you explain?

Was it that whiskey talking
or is it your heart
that made you say I love you to me
as you held me in your arms
and you'll have the explination
for that, what has come about

I loved you, seven long years
and now, that you found me out
just get out

I was just like the others
I wanted to be more

Shame it took that whiskey baby
to bring me to your door
you'll have the explinations
for that what has come about
when I loved you seven long years
my boy and
now that you found me out
Just get out

    General CommentThis one confuses me... I thought it was about a guy who had a crush on a girl and finally got to sleep with her becaues they were drunk, but the next day he realized she didn't love him. BUT there is the line "when I loved you seven long years
    my boy" and that throws me off... any ideas?

    General Commentnever mind... I was right, but it's about a girl who liked a guy.. not the other way around. Woops!
