-Heroin(e)-

you needed a quick fix, a way out of things,
I was your heroine, I gave you your wings
I took you so much higher, then you had ever been
I drove you to a life where all you'd ever know was sin
you trusted me at first, you told me I was true
then I wrapped around you, and I destroyed you, too
you tried to run away, but I already had you tied
I drove you to a life, where all you'd ever do was hide
you needed a quick fix, a way out of things,
I was your heroine. I gave you false wings.
I took you so much higher, I had you trapped among the stars
I drove you to a life, where all you'd ever know was bars.
I lured in with promises, the ones you trusted me to keep
but then your tears began to fall, or so they seemed to seep
through your hands, and down your face, you realized I was lies
I drove you to a life, where all you'd ever do was cry.
you needed a quick fix, a way out of things,
I became your heroine, I gave you your wings.
we went up too high, the fall was deadly long.
I drove you to a life where all you'd ever know was wrong.
when I was around you, all your problems were dead
but your hunger for me, always had to be fed
just as I would leave, you'd call for me again
I drove you to life, where all you'd ever know was pain
you needed a quick fix, a way out of things.
I became your heroine, I gave you paper wings
I was too enticing, up here, the air's too poor
I drove you to a life, where all you'd ever know was war
whenever you had trouble, I always found you a way out
but other times, when you were fine, I left you in doubt
you never could understand, not in this state of mind
I drove you to a life, where all you'd ever know was the bind.
you needed a quick fix, a way out of things.
I became your heroin, I gave you broken wings
when you fell, I'd pick you up. embrace you in a hug
I drove you to a life where all you'd ever know was the drug.
...where all you'd ever know was the drug.
