The Only Drug

lyrics

you were the light inside my mourning. you were a dream inside my head. you were a fear i'd never run from. you were preoccupied instead. that was when you called me and i met you at the bar. you're the only drug i've ever known. you had a sadness in your voice then. you had a weakness in your heart. you told me you hadn't much to offer. i said there's always a place to start. that was when we said goodnight and i left you at your door. you're the only drug i've ever known. and at once i knew that nothing would ever come of this. ‘cus you were dodging bullets in your sleep. and every word i said to you could take your breath away if only. you had the chance to hear me speak. then one autumn night it came to me. an apparition in my head. you had a vacant seat inside your wounded heart. now you're the only drug i'll ever know. we were electric in the morning. we fell apart by early may. we tossed and turned like restless lovers. i never begged you once to stay. that was when i called you and you met me at the bar. you're the only drug i've ever known. and once i knew that nothing would ever come of this. you were dodging bullets in your sleep. but every word you said to me could take my breath away if only. i had the chance to hear you speak. then one summer night it came to me. a lightning bug inside my head. there was a vacant seat inside our wounded hearts. but you're the only drug i'll ever know
