lyrics

Secret Poison

You are my secret poison
Dangerous and divine
Fill me up with salvation
That tastes of bitter wine

You are my consolation
Soothe my broken heart
When it seeks reparation
And craves a brand new start

My thoughts obsess
Can’t look away from you
As I descend into your deep blues

I open wide and I swallow hard
This toxic tonic that I crave
Consumed by thirst and with disregard
I gladly jump into this grave

My thoughts obsess…

I am awakened
From my languished state
With this devil’s elixir I take

You have returned for to try again
To turn my lead to gold, of that I’m wary

Are you my alchemist with potent vials
My very own apothecary?

‘Cause you are my secret poison
Dangerous and divine
Fill me up with salvation
That tastes of bitter wine
