  Cigarettes and Sex

Youíve become so addictive
Like those damn cigarettes
I get the cravings I just canít ignore
I need more time, I need another hit

It gets unbearable when I canít have a hit
When I canít see you, when I canít have you
When I canít be held tight in your arms
Why are you so damn addictive?

No matter how hard I try
Your face haunts my dreams,
Your touch haunts my memories
I just canít quit without another fix

I canít just let you go cold turkey
There arenít any patches to wean you away
Youíre not like a cigarette
I canít just through your memories away

I canít just drop you like a habit
I canít just wish you away
I canít just put you out, but
I can go on with life in every other way,
I can pretend
