LyricsEdit

I was addicted to you but I didn't know it
You were afflicted by booze, you didn't show it, oh

Life is a velvet crowbar
Hittin' you over the head
You're bleedin' but you want more
"This is so like you," I said
"Put yourself on back to bed."

You're like crack to me, I don't wanna leave
I'm watchin' you sleep, afraid you'll stop breathin'
My baby's on his eighth life, darlin'
Stayin' with him till the mornin'

You're like crack to me, so fine I can't see
With your golden grill, your purple dream
My baby's on his eighth life, darlin'
Gonna watch him till the mornin'

I was addicted to you, didn't wanna blow it
You were a dick with your crew, always on the road

You wanna touch life so hard
Why can't you give it a rest?
You're not that bright for a star
Burned yourself out, nothin' left
Burned yourself out, nothin' left

You're like crack to me, I don't wanna leave
I'm watchin' you sleep, afraid you'll stop breathin'
My baby's on his eighth life, darlin'
Stayin' with him till the mornin'

You're like crack to me, so fine I can't see
With your golden grill, your purple dream
My baby's on his eighth life, darlin'
Gonna watch him till the mornin'

Styrofoam on the microphone
Can't give it up, can't go it alone
Flame-colored paradise for you, darlin'
But death doesn't come with a warnin'

Life is a velvet crowbar
Hittin' you over the head
You're bleedin' syrup, amour
Bleedin' to death

You're like crack to me, I don't wanna leave
I'm watchin' you sleep, afraid you'll stop breathin'
Baby's on his last life, darlin'
I'm stayin' with him till the mornin'

You're like crack to me, so fine I can't see
With your golden grill, your purple dream
My baby's on his eighth life, darlin'
Gonna watch him till the mornin'

(My baby's on his last life, darlin')
(Gonna stay around till mornin')

(My baby's on his eighth life, darlin')
(But death doesn't come with a warnin')
