Poison & Wine
The Civil Wars Lyrics


You only know what I want you to
I know everything you don't want me to
Oh your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
You think your dreams are the same as mine
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
I always will

I wish you'd hold me when I turn my back
The less I give the more I get back
Oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don't have a choice but I'd still choose you

Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will

I always will
I always will
I always will
I always will
I always will

My ex was bipolar.

Some days she would say something toxic like poison. ☠️

Some days she would say something sweet like wine. 🍷

Sadly, the relationship was not good for either one of us, so we both decided to move on.

I don't love her, but I always will. 💔 ❤️

OMGGGGGG THERE'S A TUTORIAL ON HIS PAGE FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TOO

You are god sent

Ok, am I the only one that doesn't see it as a breakup song/ballad? To me its more recognizing that there are hard times in a relationship, and when its hard to love them during the hard times, you still do. In the hard times saying "I dont love you, but I always will" that's how I interpreted it at least :)

Grace Shull

Both, I saw both

You are right🌱

Majestic Dreams

@LiwiaGoszynska don’t forget the “your hands can heal, your hands can bruise”.. I definitely see how there could be an abusive theme in this song
