Wordaholic

Confront the beast every day
Write, read and live your own screenplay
Word after word, page after page, reading is dope when life is not
Can’t stop, won’t stop, until I reach the final dot
In a dark pub or under the sun, I devour my book and lose track of time
From dusk to dawn, you can’t escape when you’ve been caught
Once I’m done with a chapter, I can’t wait to start another
I feel alive, it feeds my soul I love to be in this imaginary world
Gimme some books, some sun, some booze, some rock & roll, literary chills
Your life may be empty, let them feed you when you’re hungry
I’ve found my therapy in a library
Reading is like a drug, medicine without prescription
Thank you Irvine for everything and for this great addiction
It’s my daily pleasure, more than a treasure, the most exciting leisure
Once I’m done with a chapter, I can’t wait to start another
Gimme some books, some sun, some booze, some rock & roll
I’m hooked on the books, my brain’s on a loop, these stories fill my dreams every time I snooze
I’ve learned to let it go
Gimme some books, some sun, some booze, some rock & roll
I’m hooked on the books, my brain’s on a loop, these stories fill my dreams every time I snooze
Nothing is unreal, unless I stop dreaming, writing, smiling, reading and living
I’ve found my therapy in a library
Letters on sheet give me more thrills
Than TV screens
A few words can brighten my day and it does work every day
