NICKELBACK


Just To Get High Lyrics

He was my best friend, I tried to help him
But he traded everything for suffering
And found himself alone

I watched the lying, turn into hiding
With scars on both his lips, his fingertips
Were melted to the bone

But I can still remember
What his face looked like
When I found him in an alley
In the middle of the night

Tell me what you know
Tell me what you gone and done now
Tell me what you know
Tell me what you gone and done now

Gonna do the trick, get it over with
You're better off to take all that
You've got and burn it on the spot
Just to get high

Three days no sleeping, he gave up eating
He sold his mother's rings, she said nothing
And pretended not to know

He started stealing to supply the feeling
Found out he pulled a knife on someone's wife
And held it to her throat

But I can still remember
What his face looked like
When I found him in an alley
In the middle of the night

Tell me what you know
Tell me what you gone and done now
Tell me what you know
Tell me what you gone and done now

Gonna do the trick, get it over with
You're better off to take all that
You've got and burn it on the spot
Just to get high

Tell me what you did, where you gone and hid?
Show me what you really want, was it what you got?
Slowly circle in the drain, throw it all away
Just to get high, high, high, oh

Tell me what you know
Tell me what you gone and done now
Tell me what you know
Tell me what you gone and done now

Gonna do the trick, get it over with
You're better off to take all that
You've got and burn it on the spot
Just to get high

Tell me what did, where you gone and hid?
Show me what you really want, was it what you got?
Slowly circle in the drain, throw it all away
Just to get high, just to get high
Circle in the drain, throw it all away
Just to get high

Has anyone ever looked at the lyrics on the cover that comes with the CD? I can't believe how wrong this is.

All lyric sites seem to copy each other. You know how you can tell? Because they all have the same error in the lyrics.
