Addiction (Do Not Love a Man)

Do not love a man who drinks as if he is invincible (but complains about the hangover);

He knows what a bitch she can be but chooses to ignore it

For the sake of habit,

Of need,

Or of ignorance

Do not love a man who smokes cigarettes religiously;

He may believe that she makes things easier

But she just makes it harder to breathe

Do not love a man who listens to music he cannot relate to;

He will tell you beautiful things

And then explain that he did not mean them

That they are meant for someone else
