"Poison" as written by Beyonce Gisselle Knowles, Tor Erik Hermansen, Mikkel Eriksen and Johnta Austin....
You're bad for me, I clearly get it
I don't see how something good could come from loving you
The death of me must be your mission
'Cause with every hug and kiss you're snatching every bit of strength
That I'm goin' need to fight off the inevitable
And it's a heartbreaking situation I'm up in, but I can't control

You're just like poison
Slowly moving through my system breaking all of my defenses with time
You're just like poison
And I just don't get it, how can something so deadly feel so right?
I'm not sure of what to do, it's a catch twenty-two
'Cause the cure is found in you, I don't want it, but I do
You're just like poison
My affliction, I'm addicted, I can't lie
Kiss me one more time before I die

You ain't right, take me high
Then that high it subsides and my body flat-lines
Then you come to revive; wait, wait, wait, I'm alive
But how long will it last? Will it all come crashing down?
How many doses am I needing now?
What's the prognosis? Will you be around?
Or am I just another victim of an assassin that broke my heart down

Baby, you're just like poison
Slowly moving through my system breaking all of my defenses with time
You're just like poison
And I just don't get it, how can something so deadly feel so right?
I'm not sure of what to do, it's a catch twenty-two
'Cause the cure is found in you, I don't want it, but I do
You're just like poison
My affliction, I'm addicted, I can't lie
Kiss me one more time before I die

It's just not my body (no)
It's my mind, you don't know how many times I told myself this can't do (can't do)
And that I don't need you (no, I don't need you)
It's so unfair that I find myself right back in your care
And what's good is that when you're not always there
You know that for my health, my health
You're just like poison (whoa, whoa, whoa)
You're just like poison (whoa, whoa, whoa)

You're just like poison
Slowly moving through my system breaking all of my defenses with time
You're just like poison
And I just don't get it, how can something so deadly feel so right?
I'm not sure of what to do; it's a catch twenty-two
'Cause the cure is found in you, I don't want it, but I do
You're just like poison
My affliction, I'm addicted, I can't lie
Baby, kiss me one more time

You're just like poison
Slowly moving through my system breaking all of my defenses with time
You're just like poison
And I just don't get it, how can something so deadly feel so right?
I'm not sure of what to do, it's a catch twenty-two
'Cause the cure is found in you, I don't want it
Oh, you're just like poison
I'm addicted, I can't lie
Kiss me one more time before I die
