"Like a Drug" as written by and Josh Homme....
Since you're gone, I sat at home
Wonder why not I'll never be free
But the thought of you
Goin' with another guy
No, it could never be me
You took a ring and pawned our love away
What can I say, I am left behind
So I take a drink, another cigarette
I can't forget that you once were mine

What can I say?
I guess it wasn't meant to be
Now you're gone,
It's just, your love is like a drug

It's been so long
Your folks have bet you gone
I know that you're alive inside
So I hope and pray you won't throw this love away
I just wish that you still were mine

    General CommentThis song is very very poor compared to the original which had a sure fire 60's almost Del Shannon vibe.

    General CommentYes it is similar to 'After dark' off dusk till dawn, but in my opinion its much better, perfect finisher for lullabies :-)
