The Only Drug

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
