"I'm not an addict" as written by Sarah Bettens and Gert Bettens....
Oohoo (19x)

Breath it in and breath it out

and pass it on it's almost out

We're so creative and so much more

We're high above but on the floor

Chorus1: It's not a habit it's cool

I feel alive

If you don't have it your on

the other side

The deeper you stick it in your vein

The deeper the thoughts there's no more pain

I'm in heaven I'm a god

I'm everywhere I feel so hot

Chorus2: It's not a habit, it's cool

I feel alive

If you don't have it your on

the other side

I'm not an addict (maybe that's a lie)

Oohoo (8x)

It's over now, I'm cold, alone

I'm just a person on my own

Nothing means a thing to me

Oh, nothing means a thing to me

Chorus2

Free me, leave me

Watch me as I'm going down

Free me, see me

Look at me I'm falling

And I'm falling.........

It is not a habit, it is cool

I feel alive I feel.......

It is not a habit, it is cool

I feel alive

Chorus2

I'm not an addict, I'm not an addict, I'm not an addict.

    General CommentDudes, the surface meaning is about drugs, but....call me a romantic, but it applies just as well to love. Try to tell me you can't feel that way about a person. Metaphors, think metaphors.

    General CommentI think the meaning is easy to understand ! It seems like it's a song that says how drugs are making you so high and so good. BUT, to my mind, they actually do the contrary : they show that drugs can make you fly but still they leave you cold at the end.

    General CommentMy friend says that this song makes her want to have sex... I don't know what that's about, but I guess I can see it being because of Sarah's amazing voice... there's no matching it, that's for sure...

    General CommentI am addicted to this song! This song to me means maybe the writer knew someone or was addicted herself and goes through the denial and the excuses. I'm not an addict myself, and I never have been, fortunately, but this song is so passionate and beautiful.

    General Commenti don't see how this song could possibly be part of an anti-drug campaign. sorry doodle...somebody lied to you. and besides another one of their songs is "I Smoke Alot" and it definately sends no anti-drug message. This is a great song.

    General CommentI love this song. And snypsy, this song was used in an anti-drug campaign a few years ago, I remember it.

    General CommentThat song is -definitely- an anti-drugs song. "It's over now, I'm cold, alone. I'm just a person on my own. Nothing means a thing to me..." it's how the drugs take over the addicts' lives until the point that their life resolve around, and everything that isn't a drug or related to it ("If you don't have it you're on the other side") is being pushed away.
