Whiskey – Maroon 5

Leaves are fallin' in 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 'til she kissed me
Like a whiskey, like a whiskey

I never knew that love was blind
'Til 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 into deep
She was a lesson
I had to learn, I had to learn, yeah

I used to try to forget her
But now I smile when I remember
Ooh

Leaves are fallin' in 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 'til she kissed me
Like a whiskey, like a whiskey
Ooh, like a whiskey, ooh


Would've left this world behind
Just to wake up by your side
Every morning I
Would've sold my soul for a lil' 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
Ooh

I used to try to forget her
But now I smile when I remember

Leaves are fallin' in 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 'til she kissed me
Like a whiskey, like a whiskey

I ain't like the other Cognacs
Or 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, might be tipsy)
All of that tequila's a killer, little vodka
Break her off somethin' proper
Pop a cork and play spin the bottle
(Every time you kiss me, like some whiskey)
Punch drunk love, 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

Leaves 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)
'Til she kissed me (yeah)
Like a whiskey (yeah)
And I was so young (so young)
'Til she kissed me
Like a whiskey, like a whiskey

Interpretation of Whiskey

In November, the sixth studio album of Maroon 5 "Red Pill Blues" was released with the single Whiskey, a collaboration with rapper A$AP Rocky.

Also on the album is the pop hit "What Lovers Do" and the mid-tempo number, which is supported by Julia Michaels: "Help Me Out".

The song Whiskey is a moment of silent reflection. The band around Adam Levine with A$AP Rocky sing about a past love. In addition the text: "Would have left this world behind, just to wake up by your side". In addition, the frontman sings: "Would have sold my soul for a little more time". A kiss is compared to alcohol by singing: "And I was so young, until she kissed me, like a whiskey, like a whiskey". The memory of an encounter from the past is still strong and reminiscent of the numbing sense of alcohol consumption.
