Love And Addiction

This song is by Counting Crows and appears on the album August and Everything After (1993).

Put on your bad self, get out your party dress,
And fix up your make-up, try to make a good impression,
This is a new world, we're all the same here,
Well maybe not the same but you know what I mean.

I've got everything that you want,
I've got everything and someday I'll be president,
And I've for everything that you want,
I've got everything and honey are you listening.

Hey Eliza now what do you want?
I play piano and I sing like a humming bird,
And oh I forgot that humming birds don't sing,
It doesn't matter really, you know what I mean,
Separate, love from addiction, it's not the same,
I know, I see desperation pulling my strings.

Take out you hair pins and lift up your party dress,
And sit back and listen for the rush of submarines,
Hey Eliza, is this what you want?
Sometimes you compromised, there the things you need.

I've got everything that you want,
I've got everything and it's a brand new world Eliza,
I've got everything that you want,
I've got everything except the single thing you really need.

Sail away, blood and rejection they isolate,
I know, I see a generation staring back at me,
Wasted away, wasted my time,
This picture you see,
Is nothing like the one I wanted painted of me.

Eliza says it's all right with me, if your sure,
It wouldn't be the first time,
You know it's happened a couple of times before,
And I don't even expect much anymore,
And anyway, it's not as if I was waiting,
For you to come and make it all okay,
Yeah but your family's gone Eliza,
So won't you lean to my eyes, Eliza.

Shut away, to wing blood and rejection, they isolate,
I know, I see visions of people running hold of me,
Wasted away, wasted my time,
This picture you see,
Is nothing like the one I wanted painted of me.

Put on your bad self, get out your party dress,
And fix up your make-up, try and make a good impression.
