Bonnie Prince Billy — I Am Drinking Again lyrics

I am drinking again,
I'm on my 7th cold glass of gin
Life is a tribute to you, and so is dying
And drinking in this way
To die is what I'm trying

I also try to keep my love
In case an angel loves me
And lifts me up with angel hoofs
To someplace high above me

I am drinking again,
I'm on my 9th warm glass of gin
People argue with me
But I have never been stronger
Nor held so strong a feeling
Inside of me longer
With no one at all knowing
Oh but I know
Just what I need to live this life

And all of us here
Raise our eyes and our spirits
Our hands and our voices
That your ears may hear it

I am drinking again,
And I toast you
You never will know
What it is that I do
