My Addiction
Tessa

In the few moments when my head is clear
And my addiction doesnít interfere
I have a chance to contemplate
To sober up and set myself straight

Sometimes I think I can overcome
I can stop anytime and abstain from
My addiction, my drug of choice
To silence the inviting voice

Promising me a momentary bliss
Where only pure pleasure exists
Where I will feel my soul complete
My shadowy dreams become concrete

And I think for just one night
I can pretend that it's all right
I wonít care about what they say
I wonít care about the price Iíll pay

Lost from the truth, living in a lie
The more I give in, the more I die
I wonder at how far Iím gone
At just how damaged I have become

How much of myself I have lost
How much of myself this has cost
How much more do I dare to lose
How much more deception do I choose

In lucid times, just when I start to find myself
My addiction notices and re-manifests itself
And the voice calls and I cannot stay
My addiction is again inviting me away
