Painkillers

Album: Painkillers (2016)
  • Feel you move through this crowded room
    And I catch myself like a spell fallen under you
    I've been here before
    Watching the wheels go round

    Everybody that I've ever known
    They just ache all night and they wake up alone
    Yeah, we wait in the dark
    For something to put us to sleep

    And, oh, my dear, you never know how
    'Til the things you've done come and run you down

    And we want love like it was a drug
    All we wanted was a little relief
    And every heart I held in between
    They were painkillers to me
    They were painkillers to me

    And could you be to me a love supreme?
    'Cause we wait out this life just to hold on to anything
    'Cause most of the sparks are just sweet little cherry bombs

    Oh my dear don't make a sound
    'Till somebody burns you and spits you out

    And we want love like it was a drug
    All we wanted was a little relief
    And every heart I held in between
    They were painkillers to me
    They were painkillers to me

    Use me up (use me up)
    Yeah and I'll be enough
    Come and use me up (use me up)
    Oh don't you love the way I drag you down?
    Ain't that enough for you now?

    Don't you want love like it was a drug?
    Yea don't you want a little relief?
    From every heart I held in between
    They were painkillers to me
    They were painkillers to me

    And we want love like it was a drug
    Yeah all we wanted was a little relief
    And every heart I held in between
    They were painkillers to me
    They were painkillers to me
    Come get your painkillers from me Writer/s: BRIAN FALLON, BUTCH WALKER
