Full Heart and an Empty Flask

My son walked with his mom today
Then came his bride and her dad down the aisle
All I could wish for played out through sweet tears
under bright September skies

Then as the party began
Beer or wine? they would ask
But this day was meant for sharing good whiskey
So I... reached for my flask

They moved with their parents to John's "In My Life"
Their second dance as husband and wife
Surrounded by friends, family and love
On a beautiful September night

As the party went on
I knew the memories would last
Held safe in the arms of love and good whiskey
Once more... I reached for my flask

(Bridge) It's not so hard letting go...
the future shares love with the past
It's just getting through that transition
That takes a full heart and an empty flask
(BGV's) Yeah... It takes a full heart and an empty flask

I just want my son to be happy
My dream for him since he was young
Today brings together two lifetimes of joy
Now that he's found 'the one'...
(BGV's) yeah he found the one

As the party wound down
I had all I could ask
Cause this day was meant for love and good whiskey
A full heart and an empty flask...
A full heart and an empty flask...
