I caught you knocking at my cellar door
I love you, baby, "Can I have some more?"
Oh, the damage done
I hit the city and I lost my band,
I watched the needle take another man.
Gone, gone, the damage done
I sing the song because I love the man
I know that some of you don't understand
Milk-blood to keep from running out
I've seen the needle and the damage done,
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie's like a setting sun
