The Perfect Place to Hide Lyrics

Artist: Tim O'Brien
Album: Oh Boy! O'Boy!

I won't say it'll work for you but I know it did for me
When I found myself a special place where I'm happy with all I see
Now I make each day to go my way with a slow and steady speed
With a jeweler's eye I've chipped away at the things I don't need

Started out with one sip and it really doesn't take too long
'Til you lose your need to turn around it doesn't seem so wrong
Drown your head in a whiskey cloud 'til you're blind on every side
You never miss what's going on it's the perfect place to hide

Me I had a woman once, she said she'd see me through
But I guess I didn't need her there was nothing that I could do
When she came up to me one day said it's your drinkin' ways or me
I can't live my life with one who's too sick from drink to see

Now she's gone it's just as well I can live my life my way
I'm a simple man I didn't do her wrong, she just got in my way
There's no trick to the harvest if you never plant a seed
And this bottle here beside my bed it's the only friend I need

Started out with one sip and it really doesn't take too long
'Til you lose your need to turn around it doesn't seem so wrong
Drown your head in a whiskey cloud 'til you're blind on every side
You never miss what's going on it's the perfect place to hide
