Analysis of Rooi wyn

Elke aand drink jy rooi wyn
Om te vergeet van al jou pyn

Jy drink jou smart weg
Hou net so rukkie aan en veg

Jy vat n candy coted blade
Dink jou lewe is beesag om te fade

Elke aand drink jy rooi wyn
Om te vergeet van al jou pyn

Die donker gedagtes van jou hart
Los jou deurmekaar en verwart

Elke aand drink jy rooi wyn
Om te vergeet van al jou pyn

Die verloore mens in jou siel
Sal iemand haar tog nie verniel
