We met some time ago when we were almost young
It never crossed my mind to ask where did you come from
I didn't have much money so I stole you a rose
You were dressed like an orphan in salvation army clothes

I never thought I'd lose you,nor I'd rather go blind
I thought I saw a future but the fortune teller lied

Your love was my salvation it could always get me high
What was once holy water tastes like bitter wine

I know I wasn't funny but you laughed at all my jokes
When I was choking on the words to say you your fingers down my throat
The first night I said I love you you told me to go to hell
You were giving me head on that creaky bed at the old duval motel

Just like everything good love has to die
Ain't no sympathy when it says goodbye

Your love was my salvation it could always get me high
What was once holy water tastes like bitter wine

Just like everything good love has to die
No one even cried we were one of a kind

Love left me stranded at the station and the last train's gone by
What was once holy water tastes like bitter wine

Your love was my salvation it could always get me high
You take back the holy water now all that's left is bitter wine
