I hear footsteps in the hall every night
There's a shadow underneath my door
There's a hole punched through the wall
Are you happy now?

Your memory cuts into my day
It buries all my nights away
Thinkin' of you is like digging my own grave
You're my poison now

'Cause you still call when you need someone to love
Or you need a hand to touch
Threw my face down in the mud and watched me fall
'Til I'm crawling on my knees
'Till my fingers crack and bleed
And you've taken every part of me

You're my poison now
You're my poison now
Can I drain every drop of you out?
'Cause all that you are is poison

It's not because I'm left alone to wonder why
And what became of the heart that was shaped so much by mine
Even that now I'm a stranger in your eyes
That's not what tears me down

It's how you made my worst of days never seem as gray
It's remembering your mouth and the way it tastes
It's Rosemary Beach on a sunny day
Yeah, that's my poison now

'Cause you still call when you need someone to love
Or you need a hand to touch
Throw my face down in the mud
And watch me fall
'Til I'm broken and i'm weak
'Til I'm crawling on my knees
And you've taken every part of me

You're my poison now
You're my poison now
Can I drain every drop of you out?
'Cause all that you are is poison

You're poison

I hope there will come a time in your life
That a light comes back and it shines through your eyes
No one by then will see you enough
To find what won't be found

'Cause while you're running through this world so fucking blind
I'm gonna be running free with my arms open wide
For the first time in such a long time
I can say I'm happy now
I'm happy now
I'm happy now

Don't you call and tell me you're still in love
That you miss me way too much
Well you can never see how deep
You made us fall
And turned the flower into a weed
And the lover into a thief
That has stolen my life from me


I won't be poisoned now
I won't be poisoned now
and I will drain every drop of you out
'Cause all that you are to me
All that you are to me
All you still are is poison
