Lyrics

If disappointment was like a drug
I overdosed again
I can't take the razor sharp edge
Off your crooked grin
I lost the war- I lost it all
& I can't set you right when you
go into a spin - All I can do
is survey the wreckage from here
There you were in silk & fur
So very fine to behold & I was
hanging out your every word&
hoping for something more
Then you took my fondest wish
& twisted it into a cord
& Now here I hang- Strung up
By my hope for something more
If disappointed was like a drug
I overdosed again
I can't take the razorsharp edge
off your stupid grin
I lost the war- I lost it all
& I can't get it back again
I can't set you right
When you go into a spin
All I can do is survey the
WRECKAGE from here
