Love and Theft‘s new video for “Whiskey On My Breath” is a poignant, tragic tale of heartache and redemption. The video features the duo in a stripped-down acoustic atmosphere and focuses on a man who has clearly woken up with whiskey on his breath one too many times.
After a phone call the man decides he’s had enough and starts to live out the heartfelt lyrics of the song and is ready for redemption.
I lost her and all my friends
Broke all but one of my Lord’s 10
But Jesus died for all my sins
That’s how I know I’m getting in
Oh I know I’m going to heaven
But I can’t go with me like this
I need to pull myself together
No I ain’t afraid of dying
But what scares me is meeting Jesus
With whiskey on my breath
