Whiskey
Written by Sage, Robin Eaton (Nashville 2009)

There’s no whiskey cuz the liquor store is closed
There’s no love cuz you’re not here anymore
It was so romantic once, just getting drunk
But there’s no whiskey cuz the liquor store is closed

They say a girl she ought to be demure
But I’ve never been someone who was unsure
I wore my heart on my sleeve
But you stripped it off of me
And there’s no whiskey cuz the liquor store is closed

Now I’m scared I cant feel through these scars
And all you’ll ever give me are your polite regards
You were sweeter than a person ought to be
You put up with my drunken misery
Then you finally hit the road
And now I’m growing old
There’s no whiskey cuz the liquor store is closed

I got a little wine, but it takes such a long long time
There’s no whiskey cuz the liquor store is closed

Love & Pain

Love and Pain
Lyrics By Sage Galesi, Music by Sage Galesi and Miles Robertson
Written March 2012

He said take a chance with you life
Never know what’s an open door
But I have been trying so long
Can’t tell anymore what it’s for
Been so many promises
It’s hard to believe again
When you have been down for this long
You’re scared of what it feels like to win

Prechorus:
Don’t lose your heart
Don’t fall apart
The time will heal this pain
Don’t lost your heart
Don’t fall apart
Youll find the love again

Chorus:
We were made of love and pain
So have grace on the way
We can’t tell where we’re going babe
So have peace on the way

He said you can’t see it now
But you will soon enough
And I will believe in you
When everything seems too tough

Prechorus

Bridge:
Don’t wanna live my life in fear
But it’s so hard being here
Don’t wanna live my life in fear
But I feel so alone being here
