It’s Easier Said Than Done

It’s easier said than done

Today addiction won

It gave a stranger custody of my heart

Forcing you and I to live apart

 

They say it’s safer that you don’t see what addiction has done to me…

 

I wish I hadn’t raised the music above your cries

Or comforted myself with dangerous lies

That tell me at least I’m doing YOU no harm

and blind me to the needle in my arm

 

They say it’s safer that you don’t see what addiction has done to me…

 

I will sober up one day

My love for you will find a way

But the high is too real

And It’s all I ever want to feel

 

They say it’s safer that you don’t see what addiction has done to me…

 

I tried again today

Withdrawing on the jail cell floor I lay

I hold you tenderly in my mind

Your image the only strength I find

 

They say it’s safer that you don’t see what addiction has done to me…

 

Men are in and out of my home

intimate, yet I feel so alone

I am driven by the high… Will I ever be free?

Or is this the life I’m really choosing for me?

 

They say it’s safer that you don’t see what addiction has done to me…

 

I let you go in exchange for Heroin in my veins

Tearfully signing away the only humanity that in me remains

 

They were RIGHT

 

It’s safer that you NEVER see what addiction has done to me…

 

But I pray that you never have to know it was the reason I let you go.
