VERSE 1:
I saw you in the kitchen with your
Brothers in arms
Mixing up the medicine that does
Nothing but harm
And I said hey-yeah
Stop messing with my chemistry
I said hey-now
Every time I see ya
You put a shot of poison in me

VERSE 2:
I wake up each morning an I
Feel like I'm dead
There's someone talking to me
Inside my head
And I say hey-yeah
I just wanna wake up from this dream
I say hey-now
Every time I see ya
You put a shot of poison in me

BRIDGE:
Boys and girls
With poisoned minds
Across the poisoned land
Stare at us
With poisoned eyes
And needles in their hand
Now that poison
Is flowing through our veins
Yeah that poison
Is driving us insane

VERSE 3:
Your friends are toxic and they
Make you toxic too
If I don't get away I'll
End up just like you
And I say hey-yeah
I'm gonna find the strength to leave
I say hey-now
Every time I see ya
You put a shot of poison in me

Repeat bridge

CODA:
This poison
Has got me on my knees
This poison
This poison
This poison
Another shot of poison doctor please

Poison

1. I remember how it happened all those years ago
You let me down and then you let me go
You say it's different now but I don't see why
‘Cos I’m once bitten and twice shy
...but you say

CHORUS A:
Second time around is better
All the broken pieces put back together
First love on a slow motion rebound
Second time around

2. I can't forget how it felt when you left
I never gave my heart to anyone else
My resistance is low, I got nothing to lose
Guess I’ve been waiting for this deja vu
...and you say

CHORUS B:
Second time around is better
Water under the bridge is like an old love letter
First love from a higher ground
Second time around

BRIDGE:
In rooms full of people I just felt so alone
I've been a wallflower hiding from the light of romance
Now I'm putting on my dancing shoes
I'm gonna take this second chance

Repeat chorus A
