Lyrics

“Intoxicated”

Intoxicated, Intoxicated,
Oh, was I fated to live this way?
Intoxicated, now I’m elated,
Caught in this dizzying sway…
Intoxicated, can I be sated with ~
One single life - It would seem
If I could choose, you know I would lose
This world for one drunken dream~

Intoxicated, I’ve never waited,
To drink ‘til my insides are drenched
Intoxicated, I’m saturated,
Yet this thirst can never be quenched…
Intoxicated, I’ve calculated
One too many is never enough
So I’ll take one more, my feet off the floor
Lofty in this lilting love…

Bridge: Time, it seems, is the devil’s friend,
for I don’t want this night to end.
Time it seems, laughs at us all when the lights go up,
In the night’s last call…

(solos, bridge)

Intoxicated, Intoxicated,
Oh, was I fated to live this way?
Intoxicated, Now I’m elated,
Caught in this dizzying sway
Intoxicated, can I be sated
With One single life..It would seem,
If I could choose, you know I would lose
This world forever, for one, drunken dream…
