"I can't say no It's ripping me apart In a dark room in cold sheets I can't feel a damn thing I lost myself Between your legs Your medicine is in my head You know I'd rather be alone But then you call me on the phone Oh the habits of my heart I can't say no It's ripping me apart You get too close You make it hard to let you go Yeah I tell myself, "I like that" When you tie my hands behind my back You're confident I'll give you that But if you love it so, you can fuck it so 'Cause I'd rather be alone But you've fermented in my bones Oh the habits of my heart I can't say no It's ripping me apart You get too close You make it hard to let you go Oh the habits of my heart I can't say no It's ripping me apart You get too close You make it hard to let you go I can't say no It's ripping me apart You get too close" ~M Here is a longer one per request of @nicolejb hope everyone likes it. Took some time and work to write but came out well

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. Love is the habit of the heart, but it can also lead to the demise of our heart. Love is so pure yet dangerous. And that's why I wrote it. @nicolejb
