She's a shipwreck in a bottle, she's lightning in a jar
She's pulling on the strings to this heart
She's the furnace and the fire, the shovel and the coal
She's a slow sip of whiskey to my soul

She's the Lightning & the thunder, she's the rumble & the quake
She's moonlight's mirror image on the lake
She's the giver & the taker, the maker & the mold
She's a slow sip of whisky to my soul

She comes on like a fever, & she leaves just like a dream
She's the thread & she's the needle & the seam

She can cut just like a razor, but I hang on every word
Every breath that I pull into my lungs I breathe for her

She's my sail and my anchor, she's the sea and she's the shore
She's the part of me that I spent my life looking for
Found my needle in the haystack, and I'll never let her go
She's a slow sip of whiskey to my soul
