Verse 1

You're under my skin,

Flowing through my veins,

Swore I won't let you in,

Won't let you control me again.

Pre chorus 1

But there's this sickening maddening need,

Growing stronger with every minute that I deny it.

A withdrawal that makes it hard to breathe,

Until I wave my white flag high and surrender my fight.

Chorus

Oh, I need you,

Oh, in just the right dose.

A little bit more each time,

I can't help how it grows.

Oh, I need you,

Oh, my illusive high.

When you're gone, I know I'll crash,

But I can't let you die.

Verse 2

You're under my skin,

Inching close to my heart.

When you find your way back in,

I know you'll just pull me apart.

Pre chorus 2

But there's this sickening maddening voice,

Lingering in the folds of my brain that renders me weak.

I'm a slave to you, you've left me no choice,

I'm at your mercy, you're the only thing that makes me tick.

Chorus

Oh, I need you,

Oh, in just the right dose.

A little bit more each time,

I can't help how it grows.

Oh, I need you,

Oh, my illusive high.

When you're gone, I know I'll crash,

But I can't let you die.

Bridge

I need to let you go,

But I can't, I know.

Someone help me please,

Help me get out of this.

I need to let you go.

I need- let you-

I need- you.

Chorus

Oh, I need you,

Oh, in just the right dose.

A little bit more each time,

I can't help how it grows.

Oh, I need you,

Oh, my illusive high.

When you're gone, I know I'll crash,

But I can't let you die.
