Under the Influece (Of You)
For years I’ve lived under the influence;
Everyday it’s driven me insane.
If I could, I don’t think I would refrain
From feeling my heartbeat’s rapid cadence.
Above, I’d feel a terrible grievance;
Missing this feeling would become my bane,
A much worse destiny than to deplane
A million miles into death’s essence.
What is this that can manipulate me
Into accepting everything untrue?
For days I have wondered: what is the key
To getting more than your fair virtue?
Because for more than a year I have lived.
I’ve lived under the influence of you.
