I was listening to this beautiful rework of "Make it to Heaven" and have had some trouble understanding the lyrics from 0:50 to 1:19.

Here is what I'm hearing from the song:

In the dark, in the dead of the night
I will cry,
I will cry,
I will cry like the tough cry

'Till you gave me your drug
Somehow sobers me up
Hold me up,
hold me up,
Now I'm upside down

I think I love you
Taste of whiskey sours
Always I drink you

If we're under covers
Let me be the thing that you drink to

I don't know the meaning of: be under covers, tough cry, and whiskey sours.

  • Hi Hadimsv. Welcome to the site. Just know, identifying lyrics is off-topic, but explaining their meaning is all good.
