Just Ran Out of Whiskey

This song is by Gaelic Storm and appears on the album Cabbage (2010).

I got a fresh tattoo of a broken heart
You'd think I'd learn by now but I ain't that smart
I got a pocket full of nothing, head full of lukewarm beer
I just wanted to make myself feel good
Feel like I've been understood
I was wrong, I've been wrong three times this year

I pushed off from shore in this leaky boat
With my only friend, a bottle of whiskey in my coat
I was going to drown my sorrows, discuss my attitude
I lay down on my back, I started to curse
Insulted every planet in the universe
Hey Jupiter, if you're listening, I didn't mean to be that rude

Hey la, la, la, hey la, la, la, hey la, la, la,
How hard can it be?
Hey la, la, la, hey la, la, la, hey la, la, la,
How hard can it be?
Let me tell you now,
I just ran out of whiskey and I'm stranded out at sea

Now as the light begins to fade the sun disappears
I see a siren singing in a sea of tears
I know it's you, I can tell by your hair
And my pulse begins to quicken as I row through the tide
I want to lay my head down at your side
Then you slip into the sea, you're gone, that ain't fair

The sea was as black as a pirate's soul
A black velvet bag, a big dark hole
Just reflections of the mocking moon above
Then a shooting star shot across the skies
It was then I began to realize
I would give it all away if I could have your love

Now I pulled myself together, had a little chat
With my empty bottle and this little cat
He'd been hiding, he'd been there for a while
Well I told him how I missed you, how you made me feel
And even though the cat wasn't real
It cheered me up and it made me smile

I stood up in that boat and I laughed till I cried
I danced a little two-step with my pride
Then I thought about jumping in again, I was so alone
Well you know I couldn't do it 'cause I'm standing here
It may have been the liquor it may have been the fear
Besides how would that cat have got back home?
