​Alcohol

This song is by Delta Goodrem and appears on the iTunes edition of Child of the Universe (2012).

You fall asleep
With the damage in the room
And I can't escape
The stranger living under your skin
Who's this I see
You're not the man that fell in love with me

I can't pretend anymore
It's tragic
Like when a Shakespeare play comes to the end
It's intoxicating me

So go ahead, take her to your bed
Tell her all your fears and let her kiss your lips
Dead, swimming round your head
Drowning out the days
That we made love
It's all in my heart
And I'm losing all control
Cause you gave away your soul to the alcohol
To the alcohol

The dreams we had
They build me up and knock me round
I can't decide
Whether it's better to let you fall down
I'm not so good with your self-inflicted pain

I can't pretend anymore
You're tragic
And it's a Shakespeare play come to the end
You're gonna die from what you need

So go ahead, take her to your bed
Tell her all your fears and let her kiss your lips
Dead, swimming round your head
Drowning out the days
That we made love
It's all in my heart
And I'm losing all control
Cause you gave away your soul to the alcohol

White ghost
A vision of yourself
A fraction of yourself
It's the other side of you
While I was suffocating
And feeling isolated
I never see your truth
Anymore

So go ahead, take her to your bed
Tell her all your fears and let her kiss your lips
Dead, swimming round your head
Drowning out the days
That we made love
It's all in my heart
And I'm losing all control
Cause you gave away your soul to the alcohol
So go ahead, take her to your bed
Tell her all your fears and let her kiss your lips
Dead, swimming round your head
Drowning out the days
That we made love
It's all in my heart
And I'm losing all control
Cause you gave away your soul to the alcohol
