[Verse 1:]

Once upon a time our world was on fire and I loved to watch it burn

Wild and reckless, never any limits, guess I had a lot to learn

Cause fire turns to ember, embers to ashes that blow away too soon

[Chorus:]

Now everything’s after you is like having wine after whiskey

It went from do anything for you babe to you don’t even miss me

Once you’ve tasted a love that strong you can’t go back

And you can’t settle on anything less

And that’s what gets me. It’s like having wine after whiskey

[Verse 2:]

Looking back I guess it was really for the best, still you’re something that I crave

Even though I know it was right to let you go. You’re a habit hard to break

I got used to being high and nothing that I try seems good enough right now

[Chorus:]

It’s also watered down like having wine after whiskey

It went from do anything for you babe to you don’t even miss me

Once you’ve tasted a love that strong

You can’t go back and you can’t settle on anything less

And that’s what gets me. It’s like having wine after whiskey

[Outro:]

Once you’ve tasted a love that strong you can’t go back

And you can’t settle on anything less

And that’s what gets me. It’s like having wine after whiskey
