because these words, they can't hurt anymore
I can't keep driving myself to the edge just to fall
all these things you once said, they mean nothing at all
right now
cuz you're wasted
you're wasted,
I know.
baby, you're wasted beyond belief
but I won't say it.
just keep pretending I don't see it-
the way your eyes are huge like two great big brown balloons
and the two tiny dots in the center...?
baby, I know because I know better.
but I'm waiting for you to tell me.
Cuz I don't hate the drug that's got you high on
it's crystalized flower and sweet smelling haze-
baby, if that's what you want to do then
I'm crazy to try and stop you.
but I hate the drug that threatens to take you away when
there's the tiniest cell in your body screaming
at me to "please someone help me!
it's got me so tight
and I can't get away but
I want to,
I want to-
I want to stay!
in your arms like I once did..."
see, if I heard those words I'd come
running to you naked
with my arms stretched out ready to take you in like my own kid...
cuz you're my baby, baby
I love you.
I won't ever let you go.
Not if I know it's not what you want
cuz baby, I know that you're wasted,
but I'm still holding on
because even after all this time
I still see one light in your eye that's
not gone
and I want to make your light shine
so bright
all from the truest place in your soul.

baby, you're so high but
I'm not letting go...
