My Addiction

Story Behind The Song

I saw a listing a few years ago in my Taxi listings that said a music publisher was looking for songs about addiction. So I thought, why don't I write one and record it. By the time I had it finished the listeing had ended but I have had an unbelievable amout of positive feedback from hit Nashville writers as well as the audience about his song. My dad has played it for a bunch of his songwriter friends in Nashville and thay all think it's a hit. I just need to get it to the right people. I think it would be a good song for Brad Paisley or Dirks Bentley. Other say it's right down Keith Urban's road... I hear George Strait singing it. With the Alt Country genre slowly gaining momentum, an established star could take this to the people

Verse1
Some people can?t live without a bottle
Some people can?t live without a lie
Some people don?t know, which way to go
And they just wander through their lives
Verse2
I remember when I was little
I didn?t have a care in the world
An American boy, who loved his toys
Now my world revolves around you girl
Chorus
Baby you?re my addiction
Like a sweet confection
I crave your love and affection
I know it borders on obsession
Baby you?re my addiction
Verse3
I never thought love would ever change me
And I could leave at any time
But now I see your all I need
They hate to admit that I can?t deny
Chorus
Baby you?re my addiction
Like a sweet confection
I crave your love and affection
And I know it borders on obsession
Baby you?re my addiction
Bridge
It?s like the first time baby every time we touch
It can be bad for me to what you so much
Chorus
Baby you?re my addiction
Like a sweet confection
I crave your love and affection
And I know it borders on obsession
Baby you?re my addiction
