I got lost for a while, kept chasing a ghost

Wishing for rain when there were no clouds

Betting my heart on the spinning roulette

All the while getting drunk on my hopes


A distant oasis when you’re dying of thirst

But then you realize it is just a mirage

And yet you chase it, just fueled by your craves

Because you feel that if you don’t, you will die


I held on to a dream with no rights

I dared dream of a future so bright

I held on and got carried away

And got blinded in turn by its light


I’m an addict and I need to break free

From this hold that has taken my will

I’m a junkie, and I need to get clean

Even if it feel like it’s going to break me


I’m an addict and I need my next fix

But I know I will die if I do

I’m an addict, but my soul yearns for peace

And that means that I need to quit you…


And it hurts so much, loosing you like this

Like a stake through my heart, driving me mad

Then again, when I start thinking about it

How do you lose something that you never had?
