about

Love can be like a drug, for one. An addiction...whether addicted to a drug...yourself....to another person....to a behavior....an object...a figure...or a substance...can ruin you and everyone around you. This is the type of vibe that the 17th will be gearing towards for his sophomore album.

lyrics

Verse 1:
Every day was bright at first, no moon, no night. Every moment was perfect.
How did you fool me?
We could escape and waste the time away, you made me high, and every second was worth it.
Were did you take me?
It's like a flame of pain and cries remains inside my soul, and it burns me.
How'd you control me?
Just when I think that I can break the ties, I shake inside, and only more of you helps me.
But only more of you kills me.
Chorus:
I would lie and kill to get you.
Cause I love you.
But now im sittin' here without you.
And I miss you.
I shoulda ran when i met you.
Cause i need you.
But I'm tryna tell myself I don't want you.
Verse 2:
I can still look back and see the first time that I held you that day. I only got to see a piece of you but it blew me away. All of me tells
me that I should have always just kept it that way, cause the more I took the more I needed from you for my pain.
Everyone said you were bad for my health and they noticed a change in my acts, and when they asked about you I would lie and
just say you were great. But then they saw the scratches on my neck and my face, from your chains. I remain on this train that
seems to go one way.
Every moment spent with you my pleasure beat out my pain. I'd exchanged everything I've gained, for as much as I could withstand
and retain of you. You're nothing but everything in which I dream. I'm suffering, so don't deny me my......drug
Chorus:
I would lie and kill to get you.
Cause I love you.
But now im sittin' here without you.
And I miss you.
I shoulda ran when i met you.
Cause i need you.
But I'm tryna tell myself I don't want you.
Sub Chorus (After Breakdown)
When all this pain is added, to this inflated static, I just can't break the habit, I just remain an addict.
When all this pain is added, to this inflated static, I just can't break the habit, so I remain an addict
