Love on the Rocks 

Oh the hour is getting restless,
the second hand just pounds.
I load up my defenses,
you load up on the town.

If you don’t head home broken 
it’s cause you’ll head home fixed, 
mouthing something lowball
taking little nips!

It’s just when I let my guard down,
man, you’re taking shots.
You just like your lovin’ 
on the rocks.

It always seems so harmless, 
just something to relax,
but it’s crazy how life mocks you now, 
melting in your glass.

I remember when I met you
I thought you liked love neat?
Didn’t take a nightcap, man,
to crawl between the sheets.
Oh I might shake it up or stir it once 
with something posh,
but you just like your lovin’ 
on the rocks.

Some daddies take a pick me up,
and it was gin and tonic in your mamma’s cup,
But your mind, it ain’t never mixed,
oh man, there’s only one thing gives your grin that twist:
It's straight up, yeah, and always well,
cause you don’t have the money for that high shelf! 

It’s just when I let my guard down
I hear the bottle pop.
You just like your lovin’ 
on the rocks.
