My friend heroin
We used to hang out every day.
I did whatever you would say.
The days you weren't there, I was blue.
you even killed my best friend too.
That didn't really matter to me.
Thought you loved me unconditionally.
With you I could run & hide,
Put all of my feelings aside.
The pain I thought you took away.
Left me with shame every day
Didn't talk to my friends anymore,
don't really even know what for.
I swore it was you I hated,
left my life so complicated.
There's nowhere to run I can speak.
You'll even haunt me in my sleep
It's psychological can't break free,
heroin you got a hold of me
I'm so disgusted & can't say no,
now I'm stuck & you won't let go.
At first I did you so I could get high
& now I need you just to get by.
You've left me with nothing else to take,
it won't be long now before I break
