Story

I already had the melody for this blues song when I started thinking about how, sometimes, we can't help reliving past, failed relationships in our daydreams. With this thought the lyrics came to me.

Lyrics

WHISKY AND GRAVEL

Don't wanna dream your face anymore.
Don't wanna see where broken dreams are stored.

Must I re-live our last, memories? Why can't I dream just what I please?

I'm takin' walks where we used to stroll.
Can't help myself, like some poor lost soul.

I know just what has to be replaced.
Memories of your sweet embrace.

Paths we traveled, intertwine like lace.
Hard to unravel and hard to erase.

I've covered our tracks with whisky and gravel,
Whisky & gravel, So hard to taste.

Don't wanna dream your face anymore.
Don't wanna see where broken dreams are stored.

Must I re-live our last, memories?
Why can't I dream just what I please?

Paths we traveled, intertwine like lace.
Hard to unravel and hard to erase.

I've covered our tracks with whisky and gravel,
Whisky & gravel. So hard to taste.

Can't let go, that would bring more pain.
Paths go nowhere in this foggy rain.

Gotta keep walkin' and not look back.

At empty bottles on gravel tracks.
