[Harmonics]
(Ouu Ouu Ouu)
(Mmdouou... ooh)
(Ouuohh Ouuohhouuoh wouh)
(Mm... ah)

[Verse 1]
Want to but I can't help it
I love the way it feels
This got me stuck between my fantasy and what is real
I need it when I want it
I want it when I don't
Tell myself I'd stop everyday,
Knowing that I won't


[Hook #1]
I've got a problem and I... (don't know what to do about it, ooh)
Even if I did, I don't know if I would quit
But I doubt it
I'm, taken by the thought of it... (mmm mm)

And I know this much is true (mmmmm)
Baby, you have become my addiction.
I'm so strung out on you (mmmm)
I can barely move... but I like it

[Chorus]
And it's all because of you
(All because of you)
And it's all because of you, mmm
(All because of you)
And it's all because of you
(All because of you)
And it's all because...
Never get enough,
She's the sweetest drug (Ooh)

[Verse 2]

Think of it every second,
I can't get nothing done
Only concern is the next time, I'm 'gon get me some
Know I should stay away from,
Cause it's no good for me
I try and try but my obsession, won't let me leave

[Hook #1]
I've got a problem and I (don't know what to do about it, ooh)
Even if I did I don't know if I would quit
But I doubt it
I'm, taken by the thought of it. (mmmm) (heeyh...)

And I know this much is true, (mmmm)
Baby, you have become my addiction
I'm so strung out on you, (strung out on you...)
I can barely move... but I like it, (but I like it...)

[Chorus]
And it's all because of you (hey)
(All because of you)
And it's all because of you, mmm
(All because of you)
And it's all because of you (All because of you)
(All because of you)
And it's all because... (Oh, never get enough)
Never get enough,
She's the sweetest drug

[Hook #2]
Ain't no doubt... (no doubt hey)
So strung out. (Strung out hey)
Ain't no doubt... (Said it ain't no doubt, oh)
So strung out. (hey)
Over you,
Over you, (you)
Over you(you)...

[Harmonics]
(Mmouhh)

(Because of you)
(And it's all because of you)
(Mm)
(Never get enough)
(She's the sweetest drug)

And I know this much is true (True)
Baby, you (baby you you you) have become my addiction (My addiction)
I'm so strung out on you,
I can barely move... but I like it (and I like it girl... hey...)

[Chorus]
And it's all because of you (hey) (All because of you)
(All because of you)
And it's all because of you, mmm
(All because of you)
And it's all because of you (All because of you)
(All because of you)
And it's all because... (Oh, never get enough)
Never get enough, (Oh never get enough)
She's the sweetest drug

... She's the sweetest drug...

    This song alwys reminds me of one thing,
    the gf i hav rite now,
    i can't love someone as much as i love her,
    everything is about her,
    she means everything to me,
    ik this casue (this may sound bad) but i made a fool of anthr person,
    by seein if i could love anyone as much as i luv my curent gf,
    i can't i said things to try to push her away,
    it didnt work,
    i learned alot.
    :P
