Jinks, Cody - Must Be The Whiskey Lyrics

No I'm not goin' crazy, but lately my head and my heart
Seem to be at least a million miles apart
My heart says to love you, my head says to run
It's like my heart is too afraid to tell my head what it's done
I know that it can never be the way it was
Even though you'd be the death of me I can't give you up
Too much is not enough, it's not the love, it's not the lust that grips me
It must be the whiskey

I've been drinkin' to remember and drinkin' to forget
I've got "I love you" on my mind, I've got Jim Beam on my breath
And loneliness has got the rest, I've got nothin' left within me
It must be the whiskey

No I'm not goin' crazy, but lately these thoughts in my head
Are a whirlwind of a world of a million regrets
All the things I should have done, all the things I should have said
All the pain that comes with hating the mess you've made of yourself
I know I'm chasin' rainbows thinkin' I could make it work
But the fact is that my actions speak louder than my words
And it only makes it worse thinkin' of her, thinkin' she'll forgive me
It must be the whiskey

I've been drinkin' to remember and drinkin' to forget
I got "I love you" on my mind, I got Jim Beam on my breath
And loneliness has got the rest, I've got nothin' left within me
It must be the whiskey

I've been drinkin' to remember and drinkin' to forget
I got "I love you" on my mind, I got Jim Beam on my breath
And loneliness has got the rest, I've got nothin' left within me
Sometimes it hits me whenever I'm a little tipsy
Oh, it hits me whenever I'm a little tipsy
It must be the whiskey

It must be the whiskey
It must be the whiskey
It's that whiskey
It must be the whiskey

    Weak, stereotypical country lyrics. Thought this guy was supposed to be like some game changer for the genre. His lyrics are no different than every other country song out there. Not impressed.

    Cody, this is coming from a homesick Texan..... If there ever was a Dallas / Ft. Worth sound you have it! You really are the Texan living inside of me. Thank you Jesus for giving you such talent I live every beat of every song. Don't change a thing.

    This is the way country should be. Songs that can tell the stories of your life, theres a song out there for every moment in one's life.
