I'm not the same as I used to be
All the things you've heard seem hard to believe
Haven't always been good, never really been bad
Most times, I've been happy, yeah
Sometimes, I've been sad

Sure I've made mistakes, haven't we all
I've been loose as a cannon and dumb as a wall
Haven't always been sober in counting my ducks
And if I look back now, I've had my share of luck

But the change didn't come overnight
I've been searching for you all my life
All the habits that I couldn't handle
I've swept them under the rug
In exchange for the sweetest addiction
You, my elusive drug

I'm going to stay now, I really like it here
I may paint your picture and I might grow a beard
There were times I was crazy, couldn't handle my life
Don't think you'd have liked me, not at any old price

But the change didn't come overnight
I've been searching for you all my life
All the habits that I couldn't handle
I've swept them under the rug
In exchange for the sweetest addiction
You, my elusive drug

And I've taken the pills
I got burnt out and chilled by the cold
But I've no regrets and that being said
You know cheap thrills can get pretty old

But the change didn't come overnight
I've been searching for you all my life
All the habits that I couldn't handle
I've swept them under the rug
In exchange for the sweetest addiction
You, my elusive drug

In exchange for the sweetest addiction
You, my elusive drug
