I caught you knocking at my cellar door
I love you baby, can I have some more?
Oh, the damage done

I hit the city and I lost my band
I watched the needle take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done

I sing the song because I love the man
I know that some of you don't understand
milk blood to keep from running out

I've seen the needle and the damage done
a little part of it in everyone
But every junkie's like a setting sun
