"Junkie" as written by Ira Gershwin, George Gershwin, Du Bose Heyward, Dorothy Heyward, R.j. Rice and Annie Decatur Danielewski....
I know how wear the costume
I know how to wear the mask
I even like the feel of having to ask
I like the sound of your whistle
I like the way you wear your grin
I even like the taste of my will caving in

I'm not a junkie for your love
I'm not a junkie
I'm not a junkie for you love
I'm not a junkie
Don't tell the captain
Don't you tell him what I've done
Keep it coming
Keep it coming
Stop

This is such a sweet collaboration
You got the power & I got the shame
Funny thing is we both want somebody to blame

I'm not a junkie for your love
I'm not a junkie
I'm not a junkie for you love
I'm not a junkie
Don't tell the captain
Don't you tell him what I've done
Keep it coming
Keep it coming
Stop

I'm not a junkie for your love
Go tell tell captain
Won't you tell him what I've done

    General CommentIt sounds like a dominate/submissive relationship type of song, or just really kinky sex. The part where she's going "Don't tell the captain, don't you tell him what I've done" could be part of a roleplay situation, like in this relationship, their roleplay was about a captain's wife having an affair?
    It's a trippy song.

    General CommentI think she's in a relationship with someone that might not be the best for her. She loves him, loves being loved by him, but sees problems. I think this might be a plugging-her-ears, la-la-la type of song. Trying to convince herself that she's not just staying in the relationship because she's addicted to his love. Trying to justify things and convince herself that she's in it for the right reasons, but ultimately knowing that she's lying to herself.
