  • How can I explain myself to you?
    Questions keep lurking through my mind
    Is it the lover for the time?
    I've given my heart, my joy, my soul to you
    If it is real, I sure can't see
    Gotta start lookin' out for me
    And in my, my heart won't take no more
    I know it seems that I don't care
    Sometimes my wave of love is there
    I feel it's time for me to take a stand
    See, you have given me no choice
    I feel I must exercise my voice and say

    This feeling, there's no drug that can compare
    You're so cold, I can see your breath, I swear
    They told me not to fall in love
    Wondering where it all went wrong
    You were my poison all along

    At night, I lay awake in tears and pain (tears and pain)
    Searching my heart for what went wrong (hey)
    Askin' myself, "What's goin' on?"
    Why could not we seem to see things eye to eye? (Eye to eye)
    Sometimes I really feel the danger (hey)
    And now I'm sleepin' with a stranger
    To see all these years, we flushed 'em down the drain (down the drain)
    Is that a love that came for us?
    Now, it's too late for both of us
    No regrets of what we've lost and what we've shared
    Maybe tomorrow we'll love again
    Or until then we'll stay as friends, oh, one day

    This feeling, there's no drug that can compare
    You're so cold, I can see your breath, I swear
    They told me not to fall in love
    Wondering where it all went wrong
    You were my poison all along

    Yeah
    Poison all long
    Oh yeah
    Ooh
    Baby girl
    Poison all along Writer/s: Abel Tesfaye, Ahmad Balshe, Danny Schofield, Mike G. Dean, Nicholas Lamb, Stephen Ellis Garrett
