Killing Me Slowly

Album: N.A.T.I.O.N. (2019)
  • Killing me
    Killing me
    Killing me slowly

    I built these walls to hide my ghosts
    Your fingers trace the wounds exposed
    I try and try to let you in
    But I fail again and again

    So I keep you at arm's length and let you go
    But I don't wanna give you away
    Yeah I keep you at arm's length and let you go
    But only if you promise to stay

    You think you know that you know
    But you really don't know me
    I know you love so hard
    And it's killing me slowly

    And now I can't eat, can't sleep
    Knowing that you're not lonely
    I know you love so hard
    And it's killing me slowly

    Killing me
    Killing me
    Killing me slowly

    I run this maze, erase my steps
    With lips that lie, with every breath
    You try and try to let me in
    But I hurt you again and again

    So I keep you at arm's length and let you go
    But I don't wanna give you away
    Yeah I keep you at arm's length and let you go
    But only if you promise to stay

    You think you know that you know
    But you really don't know me
    I know you love so hard
    And it's killing me slowly

    And now I can't eat, can't sleep
    Knowing that you're not lonely
    I know you love so hard
    And it's killing me slowly
    Killing me slowly

    You're everything I need
    I should have known, I should have known
    You're everything I need
    I should have known

    You're everything I need
    I should have known, I should have known
    You're everything I need
    I should have known

    You think you know that you know
    But you really don't know me
    I know you love so hard
    And it's killing me slowly

    And now I can't eat, can't sleep
    Knowing that you're not lonely
    I know you love so hard
    And it's killing me slowly

    You're everything I need
    I should have known
    (Killing me)
    (Killing me)
    (Killing me slowly)
    You're everything I need
    I should have known
    (Killing me)
    (Killing me)
