lyrics

You Kill Me
(words and music by Jill Tracy)


I didn't mean to blow the lid off
I didn't mean to strap you to a chair
I didn't mean to scratch the surface
I didn't mean to look down there

I didn't mean to claw the corners
I didn't mean to catch it on the sly
I didn't mean to strike your fancy
I didn't mean to wonder why

but I know you like it like that
it's closer than before
I know you like it like that
your faith is pressed to the floor
I know you like it like that
it makes it hard to breathe
I know you like it like that

you kill me

I didn't mean to press your poison
I didn't mean to drop the reins
I didn't mean to hesitate, I didn't mean to fluctuate
I didn't mean to stay the same

asphyxiation
the fix
my stimulation
why must it come to this?

but I know you like it like that
it's closer than before
I know you like it like that
your faith is pressed to the floor
I know you like it like that
it makes it hard to breathe
I know you like it like that

you kill me
