Cheers Darlin' Lyrics - Damien Rice

Review The Song (14)

Cheers darlin'
Here's to you and your lover boy
Cheers darlin'
I got years to wait around for you
Cheers darlin'
I've got your wedding bells in my ear
Cheers darlin'
You gave me three cigarettes to smoke my tears away

And I die when you mention his name
And I lied, I should have kissed you
When we were runnin' in the rain

What am I darlin'?
A whisper in your ear?
A piece of your cake?
What am I, darlin?
The boy you can fear?
Or your biggest mistake?

Cheers darlin'
Here's to you and your lover man
Cheers darlin'
I just hang around and eat from a can
Cheers darlin'
I got a ribbon of green on my guitar
Cheers darlin'
I got a beauty queen
To sit not very far from me

I die when he comes around
To take you home
I'm too shy
I should have kissed you when we were alone

What am I darlin'?
A whisper in your ear?
A piece of your cake?
What am I, darlin?
The boy you can fear?
Or your biggest mistake?

Oh what am I? What am I darlin'?
I got years to wait...

Sad but true | Reviewer: Mou | 5/13/14

It is not about falling in love or get drunk, it is about the feelings and how much you can feel hurt when someone take your "lovely girl" away from you!!! you just need a rocket to shoot him out this planete or just listening to Damien rice

evey song of damien rice is a poem | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/23/12

you look at her. one minute she is just another girl, the next minute she is the heavens and the sky. she is the poetry of your soul. you look.she smiles.
alcohol takes away your ability to feel. to miss her eyes.

After this listen to volcano and it will kill you. | Reviewer: Alex | 10/27/10

Damien writes powerful songs you could die listing.

Don't listen to Damien unless you wanna die.

Especially if you have: suicide thoughts, Someone left you
, or you missed an opportunity. Oh don't listen closely to Lisa she has beautiful voice and everything.
" I Iove her" :)

I just wish love couldn't be disease it's horrible

The hell with it listen to his music. :) Lisa to. :)

The Story | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/27/09

I love when Damien tells the story behind his songs, I remember him saying this song he wrote for his friend who saw a beautiful woman out in the rain one night, and he was almost falling in love with her as they ran for shelter together into the pub.. where they drank and talked, but it turned out she was waiting for her fiancé. Such a beautiful pain expressed in this song..

I just love this song...just hope it won't happen to me. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/21/09

I've never been in love with any one...i surely don't feel the pain of losing some one u loved...but for some reason,when i listen to this song...i can see, feel, taste the tears, the pain, the sorrow in his voice...Cheers Darlin' with the sligh sound of clasing the glasses (or may be the wedding bells), mixing with his voice and the music...It's just perfect.

wonderful and very sad | Reviewer: nena | 7/24/08

when i heard it the first time i didn't like it, the melody didn't interest me. by the time i heard it again and now i cant stop listening it. great song, great atmosphere, great at all. respect, mr Rice.

Anyone who has been through the awful experience it details will know how true the words are.
i love this song for being honest.
i hate it for making me cry.
he is a great songwriter.

exactly how i feel | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/12/07

brilliant lyrics which captures the powerful sadness

So wonderful | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/6/07

When I was listening to this song for the first time, from the very beginning I was sure that in the end it would go so loud and even more painful, that's just what would naturaly follow, he'll burst out- I thought. It appeals to me so much.

Break up song | Reviewer: Maimy! | 2/1/06

i fell in love with damien rice the second i heard this song. its so powerful! the whole album is one to listen to and cry after a break up its just soooo sad! i love it though!

Simply Heartbreaking stuff | Reviewer: Tezzagamer | 5/14/05

I listened to this song and it spoke so clearly to me that I was in deep depression for a while. Believe me, if you have EVER missed a chanve with a girl who you have LOVED, then this will kill you. the way his voice is so passionate with the line "I DIE, when you mention his name" really, really hurts. Listen and be broken.

On the other side of love. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/6/05

"Cheers Darlin' " is one of my favourite songs from the album, as I adore the bitterness and jealousy in it and his introspective pain, and the way his voice relays those emotions so superbly. There are many hurt and angry missed opportunity songs, but "Cheers Darlin'" leaves them all for dead by its intelligence and depth.

Sad song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/18/04

This is a really good and emotional song. If youve ever loved someone that loved someone else you'll really be able to relate to the song.
