Written and Recorded by Former Friends of Young Americans for the album "Love and Vitriol".
I know I'm the witch in your memory,
poison woman in a bottle that you can't set free,
who leads you to drink when you wanna be sober,
cursed your life and ran you over.
But you... you need to get to by.
And sometimes you have to lie.
You're the black knight in the stories I tell
who crushed my soul and brought me hell,
the villain with the vice-like grip,
who lassoed my youth with a rough bullwhip.
But I...I need to thrive.
It's not enough to just survive.
Love is a lethal mix
of toxins balanced with bliss.
Muddy water roiling with blame.
But I was right to walk away.
And I walked away.
from Love & Vitriol,
