"The Taste of Red" as written by and Butch Walker....
Well I tripped and I fell
Into a hole I know so well
And I donâ??t think I'll be
Leaving for awhile
And this lump beneath my skin
Is the home I let you in
All it took was just your
Red lipped biting smile

And damn damn damn I love you
Like the stars that shine above you
Light the ground that your laying on
While looking up at me
And oh good God I need this
Just a chance to see your weakness
So I can come inside of your kiss
And leave you on your knees

Slurring thoughts til they bled
Cause I love the taste of red
And youâ??re stuck inside me
Like a splinter does
Drawing words on your back
Spelling youâ??re my heart attack
Cause your naked body glistens like the sun

And damn damn damn I love you
Like the stars that shine above you
Light the ground that your laying on
While looking up at me
And oh good god I need this
Just a chance to show your weakness
So I can come inside of your kiss and just
Leave you on your knees

    General CommentThe song seems to be neither here nor there on either the drinking or the girl, and maybe that's the point, you have a glass or two, you spill your guts out, you have another glass.

    But the "come inside your kiss" line is definitely the classiest blowjob reference I've ever heard.
