Cheryl Wheeler "Addicted" by Cheryl Wheeler (Cheryl Wheeler)

1st Verse

She says she hates to sleep alone
But she'll do it tonight
She wants to grab her telephone
But she knows it ain't right
So if he won't call, she'll survive
And if he don't care, well she'll get by
Climb into bed
Bury her head
And cry, cry

2nd Verse

From the beginning he was all
Anyone could have been
They were delirious with love
They were certain to win
Now he's breaking plans more and more
And he's leaving notes on her door
'Took a trip out of town, couldn't turn this one down'
He said 'I guess I should have told you before'


She says she feels like she's addicted
To a real bad thing
(She's) always sittin', waitin'
Wonderin' if the phone will ring
She knows she bounces like a yo-yo
When he pulls her string
(It) hurts to feel like such a fool
She wants to tell him not to call
Or come around again
He doesn't need her now at all
The way that she needs him
She's on the edge about to fall
From leaning out and in
And she don't know which way to move
Oh, my

3rd Verse

She wants to be fair, she couldn't say
He was ever unkind
But if she could bear to walk away
She thinks he wouldn't mind
'Cause he just keeps himself so apart
And there's no one else in her heart
So she's taking a dive from an emotional high
And coming down hard

4th Verse

She's determined to try
But she'll still give in
When he gives her a call
And she'll ask herself why
But in the end
It won't matter at all
Sure she could sit at home
Stay inside
And sleep alone with her pride
And as she walks out her door
She feels as weak as before
With nothing to hide

(Chorus Out)
