Lyrics

Addiction
Verse 1:
She was in trouble Thought I'd lend a hand
She said she'd never let it go Not again
But she loved that feeling The freedom and the rush
Guess promises get broken Things get tough

Chorus:
I thought we could climb mountains You wanted to fly high
I took the trodden path You took to the sky
You said that I gave up I said you got way too high
Then I found you strung out And I just have to say goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye


Verse 2:
I hear the stories Every now and then
About a broken lonely girl Who used to be my friend
Can't help but thinking What she could've been
But I tried and couldn't save her In the end

Chorus:
I thought we could climb mountains You wanted to fly high
I took the trodden path You took to the sky
You said that I gave up I said you got way too high
Then I found you strung out And I just have to say goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Bride
So many times I wish we could end this climb
Wish we could go back to a simpler time
And put away all these goodbyes

Verse 3:
We're all standing here Dressed in black
The scent of lilies in the air And lilacs
I never said goodbye Never got the chance
We were never in the same place Or circumstance

Chorus:
I thought we could climb mountains You wanted to fly high
I took the trodden path You took to the sky
You said that I gave up I said you got way too high
Then I found you strung out And I just have to say goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
