lyrics

SUGAR ADDICT (Words and Music - Robert Childs)

In the night I lie awake
With this uncontrollable desire
In the night I feel the ache
My belly burning fire
In the night I feel the pain
Chewing at my inner core
In the night I'm unrestrained
Crucifed at the kitchen door
Sweeten me
Sweeten me
Sweeten me
Sweeten me
I'm a sugar addict
I'm a sugar addict
I'm a sugar addict
Too far gone to care

In the day I feel the same
I sit and feed my want
Sugar goddess, syrup queen
I worship at your font
High priest of sweetness help me
Satisfy this emptiness
Light my candle, burn my wick
Smell the sweet smell of excess
Sweeten me ...
I'm a sugar addict ...
Too far gone to redeem

Come to me candyman
Let me kiss your honey lips
Sacrifice my body turning
Like a pig upon a spit
Let me suck your sugarcane
As you spray me with your soda pop
Squirt your nectar down my throat
It's impossible to stop
Sweeten me ...
I'm a sugar addict ...
too far gone to save

My life is meaningless
Without my sugar fix
Mainlining in my veins
My holy grail my phoenix
My life is an endless chain
From jelly bean to jujube
In despair and in decay
Resurrected by a sugar cube
Sweeten me
Sweeten me
Sweeten me
Sweeten me
I'm a sugar addict
I'm a sugar addict
I'm a sugar addict
Too far gone to scare

Sweeten me
Sweeten me
Sweeten me
Sweeten me
I'm a sugar addict
I'm a sugar addict
I'm a sugar addict
Too far gone to fear
