when love is not the drug

O how I hate you
you took my childhood away
there’s been no
Daddy’s girl
no safe or happy home
he’s too enamored of you
to pay due attention to me
love is not his drug

O how I hate you
you took my man from me
there’ll be no
shining silver steeples
no matching bands of gold
nothing i have compares
to the escape he finds with you
and love is not his drug

O how I hate you
you take the best of everything
and slowly grind it into dust
beneath the heavy high
that has cost me so much
love is my only drug
but nothing fills the gaping hole
where i know my heart should be

when love is not the drug
