Tonight, there's something so real about it.
I can feel it in the wind and it's blowing right past me.
I can't let this get away.

It's midnight already everything seems played out.
So I just sit here and waiting for a reason to keep me from going home.

So why can't we just pretend for one night we were kings of this city?
This song will keep me amused. [x2]

So we go for a stroll around 3 AM.
We'll leave down the streets as the sun ascends through the clouds.
We were fueled by whiskey and we're getting loud.
And when the skyline starts to flow, we realize these nights are far too sweet.
Well we make them last forever, well we make them last forever it seems.

So why can't we just pretend for one night we were kings of this city?
This song will keep me amused. [x2]

This is the night for all the kings in the back row
We'll raise our drinks and join in these shows
We're never giving up, we'll never gonna let go.
We're never giving up, and that's how it goes.

This is a song for all the friends that I know
We're growing up but don't forget the motto
It's to those who wish us well
And to those who don't they can't go to hell. [x2]

So why can't we just pretend for one night we were kings of this city?
This song will keep me amused. [x2]

    General CommentI think the song describes what bliss feels like. It the best you could ever feel. Why they titled it Whisky Rye I don't know. But I believe it's about fun and just being fully alive. Maybe being out with your best friends.
