Between Love and Addiction

It’s a strong south bound wind carrying me through
From a cold northern city back home to you
Been waiting for hours to hear your sweet sigh
And the sunset is fading in the interstate sky

Still a long way from happy and ever further from right
But I’ll bet my last dollar that it’s all for you tonight

I’ve been dreaming all morning, all day and all night, of this feeling
I can taste all the blood in my veins and it’s starting to race
Like a beautiful brand new disease and I don’t think it’s healing
There’s a not so fine line buried somewhere inside your sweet grace
Between love and addiction

It’s been nearly ten years but I sustain
You got something inside you that kills the pain
From a crease at your lips to a spark in your eye
You’re the perfect escape and a beautiful lie

Still a long road to freedom from a heart on a chain
Like a flare on a highway in the morning rain

I’ve been dreaming all morning, all day and all night, of this feeling
I can taste all the blood in my veins and it’s starting to race
Like a beautiful brand new disease and I don’t think it’s healing
There’s a not so fine line buried somewhere inside your sweet grace
Between love and addiction

I got a story to tell you about trust
More than jealous or greedy, this is lust
When you tell me you love me I get weak
And it’s all I can do just to part my lips and speak

If there’s a God up in heaven he can save your soul
From all your broken convictions and your sad self control
