about

You know those unhealthy relationships, where one person loses themselves in the other until they don't know who they are anymore, but somehow, neither one can pull free and walk away. This song's for those folks.

Within this collection, this song is unique, in that it's the only one not written in the last six months. Originally penned in July 2015, it remains a favorite, despite the constant influx of new material.

lyrics

Why are all the good girls drawn to bad boys like me
We chew them up and spit them out, we lie and we deceive
I just don't understand it though I know I'll never change
The love of a good woman is the one thing that I crave

She's my drug, but I'm her poison
The longer she stays, the less of her remains
She's my drug, but I'm her poison
She really needs to leave me, but I just can't walk away
She's my drug

They say opposites attract, and I guess it must be so
'Cause the woman I deserve would leave me lying in the road
If there is a heaven then I'm going straight to hell
At least I'm having fun and haven't landed in a cell

She's my drug, but I'm her poison
The longer she stays, the less of her remains
She's my drug, but I'm her poison
She really needs to leave me, but I just can't walk away
She's my drug

Ooh, what have I done
And ooh, why will I do it again

I see pain within her eyes and a darkness in her soul
I know that it's not hers, but a reflection of my own

She's my drug, but I'm her poison
The longer she stays, the less of her remains
She's my drug, but I'm her poison
She really needs to leave me, but I just can't walk away
She's my drug

She's my drug, but I'm her poison
The longer she stays, the less of her remains
She's my drug, but I'm her poison
She really needs to leave me, but I just can't walk away
She's my drug
