Beyoncé Poison Lyrics

[Verse 1:]

You’re bad for me

I clearly get it

I don’t see how something good could come from loving you

The death of me

Must be your mission

‘Cause with every hug and kiss,

You’re snatching every bit of strength

That I’m gon’ need to fight off the inevitable

And it’s a heart-breaking situation

I’m up in but I can’t control

[Chorus:]

You’re just like poison

Slowly moving through my system breaking all of my defenses with time

You’re just like poison

And I just don’t get it

How could something so deadly feel so right?

I’m not sure of what to do

It’s a catch twenty-two

‘Cause the cure is found in you,

I don’t want it but I do

You’re just like poison

My affliction, I’m addicted, I can’t lie

Kiss me one more time before I die

[Verse 2:]

You ain’t right, take me high

Then that high, it subsides

And my body flat lines

Then you come to revive

Wait, wait, wait, I’m alive

But how long will it last?

Will it all come crashing down?

How many doses am I needin’ now?

What’s the prognosis, will you be around?

Or am I just another victim of an assassin that broke my heart down?

[Chorus:]

Baby, you’re just like poison

Slowly moving through my system breaking all of my defenses with time

You’re just like poison

And I just don’t get it

How could something so deadly feel so right?

I’m not sure of what to do

It’s a catch twenty-two

‘Cause the cure is found in you,

I don’t want it but I do

You’re just like poison

My affliction, I’m addicted, I can’t lie

Kiss me one more time before I die

[Verse 3:]

It’s just not my body (oh),

It’s my mind you don’t know how many times I told myself this can’t do (can’t do)

And that I don’t need you

(No, I don’t need you, no)

It’s so unfair

That I find myself right back in your care

And what’s good is that when you’re not always there (there, there)

You’re no good for my health, my health

You’re just like poison

Whoa, whoa, whoa

You’re just like poison

Whoa, whoa, whoa

[Chorus:]

You’re just like poison

Slowly moving through my system breaking all of my defenses with time

You’re just like poison

And I just don’t get it

How could something so deadly feel so right?

I’m not sure of what to do

It’s a catch twenty-two

‘Cause the cure is found in you,

I don’t want it but I do

You’re just like poison

My affliction, I’m addicted, I can’t lie

Baby, kiss me one more time

You’re just like poison

Slowly moving through my system breaking all of my defenses with time

You’re just like poison

And I just don’t get it

How could something so deadly feel so right?

I’m not sure of what to do

It’s a catch twenty-two

‘Cause the cure is found in you,

I don’t wanna do

You’re just like poison

I’m addicted, I can’t lie

Kiss me one more time before I die
