  • I could have beer for breakfast
    My sanity for lunch
    Trying to get over how bad I want you so much
    Innocence for dinner
    Pour something in my cup
    Anything and everything just to fill me up

    But nothing ever gets me high like this
    I pick my poison and it's you
    Nothing could kill me like you do
    You're going straight to my head
    And I'm heading straight for the edge
    I pick my poison and it's you
    I pick my poison and it's you

    I can feel you whisper
    And laying on the floor
    And I try to stop but I keep on coming back for more
    I'm a lightweight, and I know it
    'Cause after the first time
    I was falling
    Falling down

    But nothing ever gets me high like this
    I pick my poison and it's you
    Nothing could kill me like you do
    You're going straight to my head
    And I'm heading straight for the edge
    I pick my poison and it's you
    I pick my poison and it's you

    Bittersweet ecstasy that you got me in
    Falling deep I can't sleep tonight
    And you make me feel like I'm out of my mind
    But it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
    Bittersweet ecstasy that you got me in
    Falling deep I can't sleep tonight
    And you make me feel like I'm out of my mind
    Ohh, but it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

    Nothing ever gets me high like this
    I pick my poison and it's you
    Nothing could kill me like you do
    You're going straight to my head
    And I'm heading straight for the edge (I'm heading straight for the edge)
    I pick my poison and it's you (Ohh it's you)
    I pick my poison and it's you
    And it's you
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    I pick my poison and it's you Writer/s: KATE NASH, NOLAN LAMBROZA, JULIA MICHAELS, CASYO JOHNSON, KARL WILSON
