I need something strong, hand me a cold drink
Don’t need an excuse, but I got a reason
To let loose
It’s our chance to raise a cup tonight
Our chance to cross that line
Three drinks in
Still knockin’ em back
Cause yeah you know you hit me like that
Let’s have another one more round
Whatever it takes to keep you around
Cause I don’t wanna leave these neon lights
While you’re sittin’ on a bar stool by my side
Baby I’m payin an this place ain’t closin
So lets just leave the tab open
I aint gonna let this party slow down
While everybody’s havin a hell a time now
Whatever you want you want to drink
Ill keep em comin all night long
Ill leave my card with the bartender
Come back for it sometime
Ill do whatever it takes
To make sure we have good time

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
