about

A song about the very moment we absolutely fell in love with Islay in the midst of one of those wild nights out you try to figure out actually happened. It is also about experiencing that with those you love dearly!

lyrics

Can I get witness for tomorrow I'll be gone;
the memories will follow and I'll feel like I'm alone.
I'm holding on forever saying "I don't wanna go";
so pour me a whisky for the road.
Pour me a whisky . . . . . for the road.

I never knew the likes of such a quiet little town;
was hard to see us coming from the shore.
We travelled over land and found adventure by the sea;
the wind it blew the hatches by the door.
Everything was quiet yet we knew there was a plan;
I heard the whispers all the way from home.
Suddenly the music played and we all joined the band
and threw our friends around us on the floor.

Can I get witness for tomorrow I'll be gone;
the memories will follow and I'll feel like I'm alone.
I'm holding on forever saying "I don't wanna go";
so pour me a whisky for the road.

The colours of the world are living for this night alone;
we'll hold it in our hearts until we die.
Can you feel the music, can you see the people dance
and do you know that I am by your side?
We're drowning in our wanderlust for something that is pure;
it's time to lay the cards out on the table.
Looking back on yesterday we all want something more,
so take me by the hand and sing along.

Can I get witness for tomorrow I'll be gone;
the memories will follow and I'll feel like I'm alone.
I'm holding on forever saying "I don't wanna go";
so pour me a whisky for the road.

We're drowning in our wanderlust for something that is pure;
it's time to lay the cards out on the table.
Looking back on yesterday we all want something more,
so take me by the hand and sing along.
Take me by the hand and sing along!

Can I get witness for tomorrow I'll be gone;
the memories will follow and I'll feel like I'm alone.
I'm holding on forever saying "I don't wanna go";
so pour me a whisky for the road.
Pour me a whisky for the road.
Pour me a whisky . . . . . for the road.
