Rhyming and Lyrics – I Just Get Addicted to Things

I Just Get Addicted to Things by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Had so much struggle and strife in my life
It’s hard to keep my head above water
And even in moments I think I can breathe
There’s another thing dragging me under

I take one more hit, one more secondhand breath
‘Til that haze fills my head and I’m drifting
My lips start to part ‘round the barrel of that gun
And now finally again I am living

I can’t help myself I’m a puppet with strings
I’m just tryin’ to be an angel and earnin’ my wings
But I can’t help myself I’m a child on a swing
And I just get addicted to things

Your eyes fill my windows and look in my soul
I can’t breathe but somehow I don’t need to
I forget about the drugs, I don’t want to get high
‘Cause I’m high every moment I’m near you

But now when you’re gone the time drags too long
And I’m craving a glimpse of your face
I know you’ll make right by the end of the night
When I feel my hearts quickening pace

I can’t help myself I’m a puppet with strings
I’m just tryin’ to be an angel and earnin’ my wings
But I can’t help myself I’m a child on a swing
And I just get addicted to things

Well now I’m alone and you’re gone and I’m broke
My cracked achin’ heart is just part of your joke
I take out that needle and pack 80 grams
Then I’m sailing away ’til I’m all high again

I can’t help myself I’m a puppet with strings
I’m just tryin’ to be an angel and earnin’ my wings
But I can’t help myself I’m a child on a swing
And I just get addicted to things

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
