Heaven i need drug
Her eyes are all but fixed upon her coffee cup
And looking down she tells you things are looking up
Take another slug

Heaven I had a dream
But now my lifes a nightmare of efficiency
She rattles off the things she never got for free
Gearing up to scream

I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
You promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide

Heaven i need a rest
I recognized the voices talking in my head
I couldnt make out everything the voices said
Loving you is a test

I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
You promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide

Heaven i need a drink
Im here because they're paying me to do my thing
They never specify what it is i should bring
Im right up on the brink

I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
You promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide

    Adelaide is amy winehouse. And all comes to naught for the sake of substitutes for the god we abandon in the name of self interest.
