Lyrics for Tears Into Wine by Billy Talent :
[Verse 1]
The gun is loaded when the glass is full
Down the hatch and the trigger’s pulled
Off the wagon and back onto the stool

I know that when I stare into your eyes
I can see all the years of lies
Ghosts and demons you never exorcised

[Pre-Chorus]
All the friends that I’ve ever known
Are the streetlamps I follow home
And I’m in the crowd but I’m all alone

[Chorus]
Oh, Lord, I just can’t
Tear the moon from the stars tonight
Twist my arm like a knife tonight
And if you wanna leave, that’s alright
Well, I’ll just turn these tears into wine

[Verse 2]
His fate was written on a neon sign
A DUI never changed his mind
He got hooked like a fish caught on a line

You never gave yourself a chance to shine
Your destination’s a chalk outline
And when you get to the gates, you’ll be denied

[Pre-Chorus]
All the friends that I’ve ever known
Are the street lamps I follow home
And I’m in the crowd but I’m all alone

[Chorus]
Oh, Lord, I just can’t
Tear the moon from the stars tonight
Twist my arm like a knife tonight
And if you wanna leave, that’s alright
Well, I’ll just turn these tears into wine

Tear the moon from the stars tonight
Twist my arm like a knife tonight
And if you wanna leave, that’s alright
Well, I’ll just turn these tears into wine

[Bridge]
All the friends that I’ve ever known…
Are the streetlamps I follow home…
The tide keeps pulling me down
I try to reach higher ground
I’ll never give up and drown

[Chorus]
Even though I just can’t
Tear the moon from the stars tonight
Twist my arm like a knife tonight
And if you wanna leave, that’s alright
Well, I’ll just turn these tears into wine

Tear the moon from the stars tonight
Twist my arm like a knife tonight
And if you wanna leave, that’s alright
Well, I’ll just turn these tears into wine

[Outro]
Tears into wine
Tears into wine
Well, I’ll just turn these tears into wine
