Whiskey for Water

Touch the face of an angel
Return again the innocence
Begin again along this road
Another face, another road

Said the Toad to the Frog
"Crossing this road takes skill and daring"
Replied the Frog "Everyone's staring and waiting
for your daring self to cross and get splattered on the street".

Milkshakes in the snowstorm?
Hot coffee in the heat of summer?
Bare feet on the rocky shores?
"You're doing it all wrong".

Even the songs you pick are off center,
Blues for a wedding party,
Metallica for the Funeral
And whiskey for water.

You should start all over
Being careful which roads you choose
And keep an open mind
Else you'll miss it all again.
