Whiskey lyrics

Leave's are fallin'
It's September
The night came in and made her shiver
I told her she could have my jacket
Wrapped it tight around her shoulders
And I was so young
'till she kissed me
Like a whiskey
Like a whiskey

[Verse 1]
I never knew that love was blind
'till I was hers
But she was never mine
Yeah, I was reckless
But I let it burn
I let it burn, yeah
The feeling, it was bittersweet
Realizing I was in too deep
She was a lesson
I had to learn
I had to learn, yeah

[Bridge]
I used to try to forget her
But now I smile
When I remember

[Chorus]
Leave's are fallin'
It's September
The night came in and made her shiver
I told her she could have my jacket
Wrapped it tight around her shoulders
And I was so young
'till she kissed me
Like a whiskey
Like a whiskey

[Verse 2]
Would've left this world behind
Just to wake up by your side
Every mornin' I
Would've sold my soul
For a little more time
Would've waited a thousand nights
If she never said goodbye
I admit that I
Would've sold my soul for a little more time

[Bridge]
I used to try to forget her
But now I smile
When I remember

[Chorus]
Leave's are fallin'
It's September
The night came in and made her shiver
I told her she could have my jacket
Wrapped it tight around her shoulders
And I was so young
'till she kissed me
Like a whiskey
Like a whiskey

[Verse 3: A$AP Rocky]
I ain't like the other Cognacs
Older type of cat that'd never call back
Or lose contact when you runnin' out of rum and you make a run
(Feelin' light and dizzy, make me tipsy)
All that tequila is a killer, little vodka break or something proper
Pop a cork and play spin the bottle
(Every time you kiss it, like some whiskey)
(?) glove, it's a fine line
Dom Pérignon, she the fine wine
Someone call 911, I'm runnin' out of time
She done got off my heart

[Chorus: Adam Levine & (A$AP Rocky)]
Leave's are fallin'
It's September (Woah)
The night came in and made her shiver
I told her she could have my jacket
Wrapped it tight around her shoulders
And I was so young (So Young)
'till she kissed me (Yeah)
Like a whiskey (Yeah)
And I was so young (So Young)
'till she kissed me
Like a whiskey
