Addicted to Love Lyrics

Sorry kooljohn176 but you got it wrong but nice interpretation anyway.
Actually, and this is from the horses mouth, this song is about cocaine. Now if you never used or been around those who do you would not get it.
"Your light are on but your not home" ( when you shoot it puts you in a different place. Sound and thought is distorted for a minute or two. ).
"Your heart sweats, your body shakes
Another kiss is what it takes" ( A good hit makes your heart beat very fast. You get wobbly knees. You always need more "another hit" thinking that will be enough but it is not, ever enough. )
"You can't sleep, you can't eat
There's no doubt, you're in deep " ( no sleeping for sure. No eating. You are hooked on the rush and cant get enough of it. )
"Your throat is tight, you can't breathe
Another kiss is all you need. " (When you get a good rush it is hard to breath. It pulls away your breath. "Another kiss" means that you cant get enough and if you just do another one you will be satisfied but not going to happen ).
"Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You know you're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to love" (Self explanatory.)
"You see the signs, but you can't read
You're running at a different speed" ( You know it has you. You will never have "enough" but you tell yourself it is all good and you have it under control).
"Your heart beats in double time
Another kiss and you'll be mine, a one track mind" ( Fast heart beat from the great rush.
You have to do another one, just one more. Another "kiss" and the coke has you for good)
"You can't be saved
Oblivion is all you crave. If there's some left for you,you don't mind if you do" (Cant stop doing it. You want that ultimate rush".
