"Dynamite" as written by Jean Paul Makhlouf, Alex Luke Makhlouf, Samuel Warren Frisch and Anthony Glenn Villacari....
I never knew myself enough
And let it get the best of me
22 years late but now on time
I won my war and now I'm fine

You're still here but barely whole
You never seem to take control
You're trucking through the years alone
Just to find me waiting here still by your side

Light me up like dynamite
Don't need a hit when I'm with you
Fall into my bed, don't fight
A little love to get you through

Always knew you'd stay the same
But I'll tell it straight, I'm done today
'Cause I missed it once, can't miss it twice
I'm not giving up this chance, this one last dance

Light me up like dynamite
Don't need a hit when I'm with you
Fall into my bed, don't fight
A little love to get you through

Light me up like dynamite
Don't need a hit when I'm with you
Catch a breath for the last goodbye
We're setting off with something new
We're setting off to something new

Look and you'll find something simple deep inside
But you never take the time, let it breathe, give it time
You don't need the rush to ease the pain
Just take the cards and play the game

Light me up like dynamite
Don't need a hit when I'm with you
Fall into my bed, don't fight
A little love to get you through

Light me up like dynamite
Don't need a hit when I'm with you
Catch a breath for the last goodbye
We're setting off with something new

    General CommentI might be totally missing this, but I think it's about drugs.
    "i won my war and now i'm fine" - him being sober
    "you're still here but barely whole
    you never seem to take control" - she's on drugs, not in control of her actions/life
    "light me up like dynamite, don't need a hit when i'm with you
    fall into my bed, don't fight a little love to get you through" - you don't need drugs when i'm here, and i know you need me right now
    "look and you'll find something simple deep inside" - you don't need the drugs to be you.
    "but you never take the time, let it breathe, give it time" - it'll take time to stop using
    "you don't need the rush to ease the pain" - you don't need to get high to make the pain go away.
    ... i might be reading too far into it though haha.
