you only know what i want I you to
I know everything you don't want me to
your mouth is poison your mouth is wine
you think your dreams are the same as mine

I don't love you but I always will
I don't love you but I always will
I don't love you but I always will
I always will

I wish you'd hold me when I turn my back
well the less I give the more I get back
your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don't have a choice, but I'd still choose you

I don't love you but I always will
I don't love you but I always will
I don't love you but I always will
I don't love you but I always will

I don't love you but I always will
I don't love you but I always will
I don't love you but I always will

I always will
I always will
I always will
I always will

Poison & Wine is a musical snapshot about the dichotomy of love - that while it can be the thing that destroys you, it can also be the very same thing that beckons and builds you. JP and I are both married have been for several years now - and we got to talking one day about what a tug and pull our individual relationships can be. The longer you know someone - and the longer you allow someone to know you - the more the light and shadows inside each person become more vivid. This song was our attempt at being as brutally honest about the dangerous and beautiful process of knowing and being known. (-Joy Williams, The Civil Wars)

The Civil Wars are Joy Williams & John Paul White.
