Different Drugs

  • Lyrics
  • Every time I go back home
    Something's wrong, there's something missing
    You're spinning away
    From me
    I don't bitch, no, I don't moan
    But I can't try to fight this anymore
    Our common ground
    Has shifted
    You're standing in the doorway
    With a look I used to know
    With all the best intentions
    Somehow, our cover's blown
    We're trapped inside this room
    With no window or rear view
    And now you're backing away from me
    Well, what can I do?

    And if there was a pill
    We could take to find each other
    Would you drop with me?
    Would you follow me down?
    And if there was a leaf
    We could smoke to meet each other
    Would you blaze with me?
    Would you chase with me?
    It started as a joyride
    Just a way to let off steam
    But now we're running off the road
    'Cause you're asleep at the wheel
    Which way do you choose?
    'Cause right now I choose you
    Do you still think of me fondly?
    Do you still think of me?

    I'm tryna broach the distance
    That's growing in our lives
    From the night until the morning
    Like we're on different drugs

    Did I say too much?
    Did I take too much?
    The temptation to vacate
    Seduces us

    I'm tryna beat the static
    That's living in our hearts
    Like white noise that's in the distance
    That will only drown us out

    Did I say too much?
    Did I take too much?
    The temptation to vacate
    Seduces us, oh

    (It's like we're on different drugs)
    (Different)
    (It's like we're on different drugs)
    (Different)
    (It's like we're on different drugs)
    (Different)
    (It's like we're on different drugs)
    (Different)
    (It's like we're on different drugs)
    (Different drugs, dif dif different)
    (Different drugs, different)
    (Diff, dif dif dif dif different)
