  • From the air I breathe to the love I need
    Only thing I know is you're the origin of love
    From the god above to the one I love
    Only thing that's true the origin is you

    From the air I breathe to the love I need
    Only thing I know is you're the origin of love
    From the god above to the one I love
    Only thing that's true the origin is you

    Love is a drug and you are my cigarette
    Love is addiction and you are my Nicorette
    Love is a drug, my chocolate, my cigarette
    I feel sick got to medicate myself

    I want your love don't try to stop me
    Can't get enough, still hanging on me
    Your guilty heart don't let it break you
    And if you pray well no one's gonna save you

    I gave you all that you feel and everything you hold dear
    If you feel broken and
    You are the sun and the light you are the freedom I fight
    God will do nothing to stop
    The origin is you
    You're the origin of love

    Love is a drug and you are my cigarette
    Love is addiction and you are my Nicorette
    Love is a drug, like chocolate, like cigarette
    I'm feeling sick got to medicate myself

    Well if god is a priest and the devil is hell
    There's a reason for love
    Like every word that you preach like every
    Thing that you teach
    And every rule that you breach
    You know the origin is you

    From the air I breathe to the love I need
    Only thing I know is you're the origin of love
    From the god above to the one I love
    Only thing that's true the origin is you

    From the air I breathe to the love I need
    Only thing I know is you're the origin of love
    From the god above to the one I love
    Only thing that's true the origin is you

    Used to be Adam and Eve they found their love in a tree
    God didn't think they deserved it
    He taught them hate taught them pride
    Gave them a leaf made them hide
    Switched their stories aside
    You know the origin is you

    From the air I breathe to the love I need
    Only thing I know is you're the origin of love
    From the god above to the one I love
    Only thing that's true the origin is you

    From the air I breathe to the love I need
    Only thing I know is you're the origin of love
    From the god above to the one I love
    Only thing that's true the origin is you

    Some love is pain, some love is a candy cane
    Tastes so sweet but leave you feel sick pain
    Your love is air I breathe it in and out dear
    You're always there

    Love, you're the origin of love
    You're the origin of love
    You're the origin of love love love love

    Thank god that you found me
    Thank god that you found me
    Thank god that you found me

    From the air I breathe to the love I need
    Only thing I know is that you're the origin of love
    From the god above to the one I love
    Only thing that's true the origin is youWriter/s: MICHAEL HOLBROOK PENNIMAN, NICHOLAS GEORGE LITTLEMORE, PAUL STEELE
