Its a heartbreak when were at stake

but you took the cake

for your names sake

just to think, that this link

called love

can lead to happiness

bringing sadness at its withdrawel

from this antidote

that got me hooked

and i find myself shooting more building up tolerance

for that same high trying all the hardcore

and running back for more

the high is intense

but the low is unbearable yet I shoot again and again

Im frustrated cuz im stuck in the same crap

not worried about the overdose

sometimes its like my goal

but im deciding to go to  rehab

to become sober from your love

life is rough

so I gotta tough it out
