Drugs Or Me

  • Stay with me
    You're the one that I need
    You make the hardest things
    Seem easy

    Keep my heart
    Somewhere drugs don't go
    Where the sun shines low
    Always keep me close

    If only you could see
    The stranger next to me
    You promise, you promise that you're done
    But I can't tell you from the drugs

    Don't let go
    Dig a great big hole
    Down an endless hole
    We'll both go

    You're so blind
    You can't save me this time
    Hope comes from inside
    And I feel so low tonight

    If only you could see
    The stranger next to me
    You promise, you promise that you're done
    But I can't tell you from the drugs

    I wish that you could see
    This face in front of me
    You're sorry, you swear it, you're done
    But I can't tell you from the drugs

    (Oh)
    (Oh)
    (Oh)
    (Oh)

    (Take me) I need your help
    (So far away) to pull me up, take the pain
    (Take me) out from me
    (So far away) out from me

    (Take me) if only you could see (I need your help)
    (So far away) the stranger next to me (to pull me up take the pain)
    (Take me) you promise, you promise that you're done (out from me)
    (So far away) but I can't tell you from the drugs (out from me)

    (Take me) I wish that you could see (I need your help)
    (So far away) this face in front of me (to pull me up take the pain)
    (Take me) you're sorry, you swear it, you're done (out from me)
    (So far away) but I can't tell you from the drugs (out from me)

    Keep my heart
    Somewhere drugs don't go
    Where the sun shines low
    Always keep me close Writer/s: James Christopher Adkins, Richard E Burch, Thomas Darrell Linton, Zachary Michel Lind

  • Hugh from Oxford, Oxfordshire, United KingdomReally emotionally sung. Could be used on House or Nurse Jackie.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnBeautiful and heartbreaking song, this band knows how to compose such emotionally-drained songs.
  • Katie from Columbus, Ohthis song is so sad, but very good. i can hardly stand to listen to it bc drugs tore me and my ex apart. does it ever get any better?
  • Kasey from Wichita, Ksi lost the love of my life to x... he was addicted.. and i couldnt tell who he was... all of a sudden he didnt love me anymore.. i hated that drug.. it tore us apart.. now he is engaged to another drug addict.. and when i found out.. i listened to this song for.. 5 hours.. i will never do drugs again.. and i dont tolerate people who do... yea.. this is one of my favorite songs.
  • Lennonfan11 from Regawrhhrh, Icelandi really like this song because it sounds genuine. and unlike most longer songs it seems to go by relatively quickly, it doesn't drag, except for the rather draggy intro.
  • Karyn from Canadabeen here, felt that
    it's no fun, and leaves you broken .
