Lyrics

Poison

When we were young we climbed up high
We had to reach the place where mom would hide
A little case with a slide off top
It made her problems go away
I was standing on the bathroom sink
Mom slipped away to steal a drink
I touched the case and then she reappeared
I could still hear her say

That’s Poison
That’s the last thing you’ll ever try
That’s Poison
I’m lucky I’m still alive

So, she was young when I first saw her face
My daughter’s age, but from a different place
We were just talking, she could talk all night
I was just listening then…

It’s like a dream how alive she’s made me feel
I can’t be dreaming something that’s so real

You were waiting when I got home
Been wondering where I’d left my phone
The messages and those stupid plans
In the palm of your hand
I saw your face like I never had before
Through all those years, now standing at the door
You said through sadness and disbelief
To be forgiven you’ve got to want to be

That’s Poison
That’s the last thing you’ll ever try
That’s Poison
I’m lucky I’m still alive
