  • Feel your every heartbeat, feel you on these empty nights
    Calm the ache, stop the shakes -- you clear my mind
    You're my escape from this messed up place
    'Cause you let me forget; you numb my pain

    How can I tell you just all that you are?
    What you do to me

    You're better than drugs
    Your love is like wine
    Feel you comin' on so fast, feel you comin' to get me high
    You're better than drugs
    Addicted for life
    Feel you comin' on so fast, feel you comin' on to get me high

    Feel you when I'm restless, feel you when I cannot cope
    You're my addiction, my prescription, my antidote
    You kill the poison, ease the suffering
    Calm the rage when I'm afraid to feel again

    How can I tell you just all that you are?
    What you do to me

    You're better than drugs
    Your love is like wine
    Feel you comin' on so fast, feel you comin' to get me high
    You're better than drugs
    Addicted for life
    Feel you comin' on so fast, feel you comin' on to get me high

    How can I tell you just all that you are?
    What you do to me

    Feel your every heartbeat, feel you on these empty nights
    You're the strength of my life

    You're better than drugs
    Your love is like wine
    Feel you comin' on so fast, feel you comin' to get me high
    You're better than drugs
    Addicted for life
    Feel you comin' on so fast, feel you comin' on to get me high Writer/s: BRIAN HOWES, JOHN COOPER
