Couple with another girl

I was your cup of coffee,
Bittersweet and strong.
Kept you up at night, kept you active 'til you got tired.
My caffeine was in you 'til the daylight.
I love being in your system. I love how you start the day with me.
I love that you spend every day with me.
For a moment I was secure that you'd never replace me.
Then your heart pumped so fast, you felt tired so much
One day you said sorry I have to pass.
You told me that I am bad for you so you had to stop.

And then she came,
Your cup of tea.
She keeps you warm, day and night.
She saved your heart and held you tight.
For the first time I saw you calm and so relaxed,
As I look at you now there's one thing that I want to ask,
Please remember that I was once your sweetest drug.
