    Someone gave me this
    I think it was a Christmas
    said it was "Vintage"
    perfectly fermented
    said it was "love in a brown
    paper bag"

    said to drink it to prevent pain
    but not to much or I might get drunk
    inquisition set in...
    "isn't that the purpose of drinking?
    ...to get to the land of unstable knees
    and slurred speech, liqour induced
    happiness, liqour induced thoughts set free"

    so I drank a 40 ounce of love
    from this brown paper bag
    I should have known that love
    ain't no different than liqour,
    you ingest enough to make you
    smile and when it really hits you
    it makes you do things you wouldn't normally
    do...

    like after drinking I called her on the
    phone knew she wasn't home but left
    one word messages backwards so that
    when she listened to them
    she could understand how
    I feel

    like walking down the street singing
    and stumbling and laughing at the
    cops and bumping into thugs
    **** near got kilt!, that's right "kilt"
    all in the name of love

    but it tasted good
    and went down smooth
    regrooved my groove
    readjusted my mood
    and gave me a love tan
    adding a little flavor
    to my already chocolate hue

    that love in a brown paper bag must've
    been 200 proof...

    and just like liqour that mess
    eventually wore off leaving me
    hung over and with a heartache
    cause all it was
    an escape from reality
    proof /100 percent /that I was living
    love's fallacy

    this is ruff but i had to get it out of my head. forgive me, i'll adjust it later.
