cheers darlin lyrics – damien rice

cheers darlin’
here’s to you and your lover boy
cheers darlin’
i got years to wait around for you
cheers darlin’
i’ve got your wedding bells in my ear
cheers darlin’
you give me three cigarettes to smoke my tears away

and i die when you mention his name
and i lied, i should have kissed you
when we were running in the rain

what am i darlin’?
a whisper in your ear?
a piece of your cake?
what am i, darlin?
the boy you can fear?
or your biggest mistake?

cheers darlin’
here’s to you and your lover man
cheers darlin’
i just hang around and eat from a can
cheers darlin’
i got a ribbon of green on my guitar
cheers darlin’
i got a beauty queen
to sit not very far from me

i die when he comes around
to take you home
i’m too shy
i should have kissed you when we were alone

what am i darlin’?
a whisper in your ear?
a piece of your cake?
what am i, darlin?
the boy you can fear?
or your biggest mistake?

oh what am i? what am i darlin’?
i got years to wait…
