Poison & Wine 

You only know what I want you to I know everything you don’t want me to Your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine You think your dreams are the same as mine 

I don’t love you but I always will I don’t love you but I always will I don’t love you but I always will I always will 

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

I don’t love you but I always will I don’t love you but I always will I don’t love you but I always will I don’t love you but I always will I don’t love you but I always will I don’t love you but I always will I don’t love you but I always will I always will I always will I always will I always will I always will

Video produced & directed by Becky Fluke. Audio produced by Charlie Peacock. Poison & Wine written by John Paul White, Joy Williams & Chris Lindsey

“Poison & Wine is a musical snapshot about the dichotomy of love – that while it can be the thing that destroys you, it can also be the very same thing that beckons and builds you. JP and I are both married have been for several years now – and we got to talking one day about what a tug and pull our individual relationships can be. The longer you know someone – and the longer you allow someone to know you – the more the light and shadows inside each person become more vivid. This song was our attempt at being as brutally honest about the dangerous and beautiful process of knowing and being known.” – Joy Williams, The Civil Wars
