lyrics

She's as dark as the truth and twice as sad
With three times the pain of leaving
A fourth as hard as coming back again
She's a fragile china cup
Of everything that leaves me grieving
With a lump or two of sugar added in
She interferes with how I think
'Til all I do is sit and drink her in
My blood flows thick and warm with her
I'll ride out any storm with her in wind

I'm her fix and she's my heroin(e)
I'm her fix and she's my heroin(e)
I'm her fix and she's my heroin(e) tonight
I'm her fix and she's my heroin(e)
I'm her fix and she's my heroin(e)
I'm her fix and she's my heroin(e) tonight, tonight

She's a page from the book that teaches me
However fast I'm learnin'
There's a life's supply of things I'll never know
She's a suicide of ecstacy
That leaves my body burnin'
And takes me where my darkest thoughts won't go
She never fails and barely tries
And through it all it's no surprise to me
That every slow release of her
Results in one more piece of her in me

What I would give
To lay down
By her side as the stars circle 'round
Not a word
Not a sound
By her side as the stars circle 'round

She's as dark as the truth and twice as sad
With three times the pain of leaving
A fourth as hard as coming back again

I'm her fix and she's my heroin(e)
I'm her fix and she's my heroin(e)
I'm her fix and she's my heroin(e) tonight...
