Untainted Love

fthc - 2:54
I sure do miss them drugs,
And not giving the slightest fuck,
Shivering and thunderstruck,
But it nearly killed me.
And I sure do miss cocaine –
The bravado and bloodstains,
Crushing highs and creeping shame –
And it nearly killed me.

I’m not invincible after all.
I’m not invincible – it’s impossible
To stay awake forever.

And I miss the independence
Of being high as fuck and friendless,
In the days that were numb and endless,
And that nearly killed me.
And I miss leaving every morning
Without words and without warning,
With open arms towards an ending
That would surely kill me.

I’m not invincible after all.
I’m not invincible – it’s impossible
To stay alone forever.

In the final analysis,
When it all comes down to it,
I went right up to the line,
And it turns out I did’t want to die.
Because the one thing that I never accounted for was love –
Untainted Love.

You can’t stay awake forever.
You can’t stay alone forever.
