A romance ruined by the ravages of drugs.


Out of the fire and into the night
I must escape the pain of your love
But you won't let me go without a fight
I must escape the pain of your love

You know you've got a hold on me
But there's something else that's got a hold on you

And it's drugs. You're on drugs.
You're in a prison of your own design
And those track marks are a telltale sign.
You're on drugs. Illegal drugs.
You're in a prison of your own design
And that big box of drugs is a tell-tale sign.

Girl, you're shackled by the chains of addiction.
I'm paying the price for your affliction.
You made me a prisoner and your love is the cell
Is there no escape from this pit of hell you call drugs?

Love is the only drug I need.
But girl, your needles are making me bleed.

He forged Steel Maverick.
