What do you do when you know something's bad for you
And you still can't let go?

I was naпve
Your love was like candy
Artificially sweet
I was deceived by the wrapping

Got caught in your web
And I learned how to plead
I was prey in your bed
And devoured completely

And it hurts my soul
Cos I can't let go
All these walls are caving in
I can't stop my suffering
I hate to show that I've lost control
Cos I, I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need to walk away from

I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya
Get away, walk away, walk away

I should have known
I was used for amusement
Couldn't see through the smoke
It was all an illusion

Now I've been licking my wounds (licking my wounds)
But the venom seeps deeper (deeper, deeper)
We both can subduce
But Darling you hold me prisoner (prisoner)

I'm about to break
I can't stop this ache
I'm addicted to your allure
And I'm fiending for a cure
Every step I take
Leads to one mistake
I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need...

I'm about to break and I can't stop this ache, getting nothing in return
What did I do to deserve
The pain of this slow burn
And everywhere I turn
I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need to walk away from

I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya
Get away, walk away, walk away

Everytime I try to grasp for air
I get smothered in despair, it's never over, over
Seems I never wake from this nightmare
I let out a silent prayer, let it be over, over

Inside I'm screaming
Begging, pleading no more
Ahh...

Now what to do,
My heart has been bruised
So sad but it's true
Each beat reminds me of you

It hurts my soul
Cos I can't let go
All these walls are caving in
I can't stop my suffering
I hate to show that I've lost control
Cos I, I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need...

I'm about to break
I can't stop this ache
I'm addicted to your lure
And I'm feening for a cure
Every step I take
Leads to one mistake
I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need...

I can't mend
This torn state I'm in
Getting nothing in return
What did I do to deserve
The pain of this slow burn
And everywhere I turn
I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need to walk away from

I say...
I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya
Get away, walk away, walk away

Only thing I need to do is walk away

I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya
Get away, walk away, walk away

I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya
Get away, walk away, walk away

I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya
Get away, walk away, walk away

    This song is about an addiction to someone you are with and you know the relationship is bad for you but you just can't seem to get away. You are so addicted to this person and you know you are being used by them but, no matter how painful and how much you want to get away from them, your 'emotional' addiction keeps you bound to your lover. You are fighting within yourself to conquer this addiction but its grasp is too strong.

    It sounds like a relationship where the downtrodden lover has broken away. Otherwise they wouldn't be able to see what is wrong with the relationship. But, and this is the crux, they keep going back. So it's about staying away from the 'abusing' lover. Simply, as said above, it is about addiciton. The eyes have been opened, but the strength to stay away isn't there because nothing else engenders the same feeling/passion, even though it is bad!
