Poison lyrics

I could have beer for breakfast
My sanity for lunch
Trying to get over how bad I want you so much
Innocence for dinner
Pour something in my cup
Anything and everything just to fill me up
But nothing ever gets me high like this

I pick my poison and it's you
Nothing can kill me like you do
You're going straight to my head
And I'm heading straight for the edge
I pick my poison and it's you
I pick my poison and it's you

I can feel you whisper and laying on the floor
I try to stop but I keep on coming back for more
I’m a light-weight and I know it
Cause after the first time, I was falling, falling down
Nothing ever gets me high like this


I pick my poison and it's you
Nothing can kill me like you do
You're going straight to my head
And I'm heading straight for the edge
I pick my poison and it's you
I pick my poison and it's you

Bittersweet ecstasy
That you got me in
Falling deep
I can't sleep tonight
And you made me feel like I'm out of my mind
But it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
Bittersweet ecstasy
That you got me in
Falling deep
I can't sleep tonight
And you made me feel like I'm out of my mind
Oh but it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

Nothing ever gets me high like this

I pick my poison and it's you
Nothing can kill me like you do
You're going straight to my head
And I'm heading straight for the edge
I pick my poison and it's you
I pick my poison and it's you
