about

The song is about forbidden fruit, your innermost yearnings.
'elique' is an escape from reality, chasing that butterfly high.

lyrics

Guilty pleasures, eyeing from afar
His worst nightmare, my most intriguing thought
Captivating, stimulating, heightened senses
A need that lingers

Knowing this could never be
Won’t change how good it feels
That’s just the way it is
Enough effort put in
To pass it off as games
Sometimes it even fools me too

But I try, He knows how hard I try
Yes I try, He knows how hard I try
Oh I try, I’m telling you I try
But I guess that I

Gotta get high somehow
Gotta get high somehow
Got to get it
Gotta get high somehow

Me on the sidelines
Frustrated yet intrigued
You could give me the sweetness that I need
Imagination, temptation, my sweet damnation
A touch that lingers

But I try, Lord knows how hard I try
Yes I try, He knows how hard I try
Oh I try, I’m telling you I try
But I guess that I

Gotta get high somehow
Gotta get high somehow
Got to get it
Gotta get high somehow

Only in the dark I feel it
My most secret thoughts, I need it
The sweetness of your lips
The tenderness of bliss
Never near, never too far


But I try, He knows how hard I try
Oh yes I try, Yeah yeah yeah yeah
He knows how hard I try, I’m telling you I try
But I guess that I

Gotta get high somehow
I gotta get high
Somehow
Gotta get high somehow
Somehow

Gotta get high somehow
Knowing this could never be
won’t change how good it feels
Said, Knowing this could never be

Knowing this could never be
won’t change how good it feels
Knowing this could never be
Said, Knowing this could never be


Gotta get high, gotta get high,
Gotta get high, gotta get high,
Gotta get high, gotta get high,
Gotta get high somehow
