Song Description

A poignant, yet upbeat song about winning against addiction or whatever might plague you.

Lyrics

I stand in the shadow of your ominous cloud,
Wishing you would fade away, for cryin' out loud.
You suffocate me like a heavy shroud
And refuse to leave.

You crept up slowly. Didn't know you were there.
A subtle reminder of a distant affair.

You stole my joy and you threatened despair,
A fate without reprieve.

Monkey on my back,
Won't you leave me alone?
Monkey on my back
I'm not yours to own.

Never going back.
No matter what you do,
Monkey on my back,
I am stronger than you.

I ran from you as hard as I could--
Aching, hurt, misunderstood.
But no matter how far, it did no good.
You were here to stay.

So I tried to change my time and place,
Put on a bright and happy face,
And still got caught in your embrace.
As we dance our sick ballet.

Monkey on my back,
Won't you leave me alone?
Monkey on my back
I'm not yours to own.

Never going back.
No matter what you do,
Monkey on my back,
I am stronger than you.

Falling, falling, falling down.
Get back up and circle round.
Loathe the devil, hate the cure.
See how much I can endure
To live with you forever more

My monkey on my back,
Won't you leave me alone?
Monkey on my back
I'm not yours to own.

Never going back.
No matter what you do,
Monkey on my back,
I am stronger than you.

Stronger than you.
You.
Than you.
