This is wrong

I should be gone

Yet here we lay

'Cause I can't stay away.

I felt his light kisses on my neck, knowing how wrong this was. We should've never met, much less be sneaking around to meet each other nearly every night. It was a sign to how much one person's actions can change someone's fate forever.

Roses bloom

In your dirty room

I come to play

'Cause I can't stay away

No, I can't stay away-ay

I lifted my head off of his bare chest to look at his peacefully sleeping face. Why couldn't he look this way all of the time? Their fighting takes a toll on him, no matter how much he tries to deny it. It's my turn to feel terrible; my love for him has torn them apart. It's all because I can't stay away…

I'm conflicted

I inhale now I'm addicted

To this place

To you babe

I can't stay away

Can't stay away

We get up, we go down

Then we go one more round

It's wrong, they say

I can't stay a- I can't stay away

No, I can't stay a- I can't stay away

His large and calloused fingertips push my hair out of my eyes. Sweat was causing my hair to stick to my face unattractively. "I love you," I whispered under my breath. I never realized he heard me as I arched myself into his touch. The feel of his hands sent little shocks of fire into my body and his breath rushing past my neck made shivers sun down my spine.

I was numb

For you I come

Night and day

And I can't stay away

No, I can't stay away

I knew that everyone could see it. It was written on my face; how much I needed him. I was addicted in the worst way, to the worst drug, and I didn't need money to buy it. When we were together, I couldn't keep my hands away from him. When we were apart, he was all I thought about.

I wish I could

Leave and never return

Baby, I know I should

But for you I'd burn

Stay away

'Cause I can't stay away-ay

Pulling on my clothes, I turned to kiss him good-bye. I wasn't fooling either of us with my fake finality – we both knew I would be back the next day. He was a sick addiction, a forbidden fruit that I had managed to fall in love with. We would never become anything together, but my mind still gave me a chance; a chance that I would never have.

I'm conflicted

I inhale now I'm addicted

To this place

To you babe

I can't stay away

Can't stay away

We get up, we go down

Then we go one more round

It's wrong, they say

I can't stay a- I can't stay away

No, I can't stay a- I can't stay away

His strong arms encased me in an unexpected hug before I could make it to the door. I leaned back into his warm body in unwilling pleasure. "I need to leave," I murmured.

His hot breath crashed over my neck and behind my ears. "I love you, too," he whispered before letting me go.

I was right…I came back the next day. Just like I always did.

I can't stay away

I can't stay away

I can't stay away

I can't stay away…


Author's Note: I wrote this quite awhile ago, actually. I was getting up the nerves to post it. The song it is based from is "I Can't Stay Away" by the Veronicas. Let me know what you think, please. I'd love to hear opinions and criticism. (:
