song lyrics
"But It's Love That Only Takes" by michaelcahill

 
So, everybody says you're no good
that you're bad
you're the one will make me sad
and they tell me I'm a fool
should turn my back
that you don't give what I lack
 
but they don't know how I feel
when you're inside me
that I don't care what is real
when you're inside me

Hey, I'll hide in the dark, conceal
just you and me, reality
flows through my veins
I go insane
without you inside me
 
Yeah, you all say I'm just a fool
but it's your game and your rules
why should I hear
what do you offer me
I live in fear
I'll be empty can't you see
 
You say it's love that only takes
but when it's gone my body shakes
if I am cold it makes me warm
the world offers only harm

this love it fills me
and you say it will kill me
but I'm dead when it is gone
you're wrong I know you're wrong

you say it's love that only takes
but what it takes is what I only
give up freely
really
I give up freely, to my love
leave us alone
leave us alone
just leave us
 
 

 

Lyrics about addiction writing prompt entry

Writing Prompt
The words to the song,
Laughter All Around

You never knew the hurt you'd cause...trying to heal your pain...

and for our little girl...life will never be the same...

don't think that I'm trying to judge...because I've been there before...

you brought me back to life at the same very spot...where you died on the floor...

people say that this shit ain't deep... people say it's no reason to lose any sleep...

people think you can wear your heart on your sleeve...

but all there are is trackmarks where your heart used to be....

in this life all you wanted was peace and love...

I wish you could've found it several feet above...

know we all see you six feet below ground...

a terrible way to finally get friends and family around...

people say that this shit ain't deep...

people say it's no reason to lose any sleep...

people say you can wear your heart on your sleeve...

but all there are is trackmarks where your heart used to bleed...

people say that love is the answer...

well tough love can be more brutal than cancer...

the mind you try to escape never forgets the pain...

and when your eyes are open you feel it just the same...

the hardest thing I ever did was tell our little girl...

she would no longer see mommy in this world...

and dammit if you were clean I know you'd be around...

in the arms of your little girl, laughter all around....

dammit if you were clean I know you'd be around...

in the arms of your little girl, laughter all around.....

Author Notes

Simple words, yes, of course. Addiction isn't poetic or clever or eloquent. It isn't pretentious wisdom and deep introspection.
