Feel your every heartbeat
Feel you on these empty nights
Calm the ache, stop the shakes
You clear my mind
You're my escape
From this messed up place
'Cause you let me forget
You numb my pain

How can I tell you just all that you are
What you do to me

You're better than drugs
Your love is like wine
Feel you comin' on so fast
Feel you comin' to get me high
You're better than drugs
Addicted for life
Feel you comin' on so fast
Feel you comin' on to get me high

Feel when I'm restless
Feel when I cannot cope
You're my addiction, my prescription, my antidote
You kill the poison
Ease the suffering
Calm the rage when I'm afraid
To feel again
How can I tell you just all that you are
What you do to me

You're better than drugs
Your love is like wine
Feel you comin' on so fast
Feel you comin' to get me high
You're better than drugs
Addicted for life
Feel you comin' on so fast
Feel you comin' on to get me high

How can I tell you just all that you are
What you do to me
Feel every heartbeat
Feel on these empty nights
You're the strength of my life

You're better than drugs
Your love is like wine
Feel you comin' on so fast
Feel you comin' to get me high
You're better than drugs
Addicted for life
Feel you comin' on so fast
Feel you comin' on to get me high

Feel every heartbeat
Feel on these empty nights
Feel you comin' on so fast
Feel you comin' on to get me high
Feel every heartbeat
You come on to get me high
Feel you comin' on so fast
Feel you comin' on to get me high
To get me high

    i love this song, it says how we can "get high" off of God. In the Bible it says not to fill yourslf on wine but of the Holy Spirit.

    I LIVE TO GET HIGH OFF OF GOD'S LOVE. IT IS BETTER THAN DRUGS B/C THE NEXT MORNING YOUR DON'T HAVE THE BAD SIDE-EFECTS LIKE YOU DO WITH DRUGS OR ALCOHOL FOR THAT MATTER. I LOVE GETTING HIGH OFF OF GOD B/C YOU CAN KEEP GETTING HIGHER AND HIGHER ON HIM SO THAT YOU ARE WRAPPED UP IN HIM AND HE IS WRAPPED UP IN YOU SO THAT YOU HAVE THE WORD LIVING ON THE INSIDE OF YOU AND IT IS VERY COOLTO EXPERIENCE THAT KIND OF FEELING WHEN GOD IS ALL UP IN YOU, YOU FEEL SO LIGHT LIKE YOU COULD FLOAT AWAY FROM THE GROUND. NO GRAVITY TO HOLD YOU DOWN THAT IS COOL.

    Most songs have multiple meanings. This can be about god, but of other opinions, it is also a love song for someone you have that kind of special connection with. Skillet may be a christian band but not every single song they write is solely about god and jesus.

    Kayla paige is wrong. This song is not about a girl, skillet is a christian band and their songs are mostly about jesus. This song is about turning to god instead of drugs for an escape from your pain.

    I love this song. I believe this song is about someone who is in love and he is describing her as "better than drugs" . He is describing how he is addicted to her and he could live without her. :)) this song is so sweet :)
