Killer

Album: Wonders Of The Younger (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • PWT's vocalist and songwriter Tom Higgenson discussed this song's meaning with Alternative Press magazine: "This is the darkest and possibly coolest track on the album. It's 'cool' in the sense that I could hear it in a Quentin Tarantino movie. It has a badass quality to it that Plain White T's usually can't ever pull off. The funny thing is that it's a love song - a very sick and demented love song that asks, 'How evil and wrong can I be before you stop loving me? Will you be by my side no matter what I do, and no matter who I am?' It's a true test of love under the most grim circumstances."
