Emily Warren – Poking Holes

So don’t blame the liquor
Before it’s too late
You’re poking holes in you and me
Put your heart in every line
Wake up in the morning
You say that every time
Doing damage over time
You’re poking holes in you and me
For the things you say that you don’t mean
[Pre-Chorus 1]
Wonder why I just stood by
Oh, you know the worst thing is
You said no matter what that you’d be honest
So don’t blame the liquor
You don’t know what you did last night
But, darling, something’s got to change
You’re poking holes, you’re poking holes
You’re poking holes in you and me
No, something wasn’t right
[Chorus]
So don’t blame the liquor
Oh, you know the worst thing is

But last night when you broke another promise
[Pre-Chorus 2]
For the things you say that you don’t mean
[Chorus]
I can see how hard you try
If you keep making all the same mistakes
[Outro]
I know that you’ve got the best intentions
I started to question what the truth is

[Chorus]

It’s like everything is perfect
The small things, get bigger
[Bridge]
[Verse 2]
Something’s different in this light

I know that you mean the things you say
Don’t wanna wake up one day and
It’s like everything is perfect
For the things you say that you don’t mean
But forever isn’t something you should mention

Something’s different in this light
[Verse 1]
Kept it on the inside
You’re poking holes in you and me
You don’t know what you did last night
But that doesn’t make it right

The small things, get bigger
But the things that we just miss out
And ooh, I swear you change me
I don’t wanna have this fight
The small things, get bigger
You’re saying that it’s not that
Wake up in the morning
You’re poking holes in you and me

You said, "Now darling, I’ll take care of you"
You’re upset
And do things I can’t forget
You could paint a picture of
You don’t wanna hurt me
You’re poking holes, you’re poking holes
