Lyrics: Chicago - Hard Habit to Break



Classic Fridays
You're the Inspiration
Chicago


I guess I thought you'd be here forever
Another illusion I chose to create
You don't know what ya got until it's gone
And I found out a little too late

I was acting as if you were lucky to have me
Doing you a favor I hardly knew you were there
But then you were gone and it all was wrong
Had no idea how much I cared

Chorus:
Now being without you
Takes a lot of getting used to
Should learn to live with it
But I don't want to
Being without you
Is all a big mistake
Instead of getting easier
It's the hardest thing to take
I'm addicted to you baby
You're a hard habit to break

You found someone else you had every reason
You know I can't blame you for running to him
Two people together but living alone
I was spreading my love too thin

After all of these years
I'm still trying to shake it
Doing much better they say that it just takes time
Deep in the night it's an endless fight
I can't get ya out of my mind

Repeat Chorus

I can't go, just can't go on
I can't go, just can't go on

Now being without you
Takes a lot of getting used to
Should learn to live with it
But I don't want to
Being without you
Is all a big mistake
Instead of getting easier
It's the hardest thing to take
I'm addicted to you

You're a hard habit to break (hard habit to break)
Such a hard habit to break
I'm addicted to you
You're a hard habit to break (hard habit to break)
Such a hard habit to break (hard habit to break)
I'm addicted to you baby
