  • Here we are, a careful distance
    Here's my heart, what's left of it
    In this town, I used to listen
    Once, Once, Yeah

    I had hope, blind faith
    had as much as you can take

    I'm only gonna let you kill me once
    I'm only gonna let you kill me then some
    I'm only gonna let you kill me
    Once, Once, Once, yeah

    Once, Once, Once, yeah

    Once, Once, Once, yeah

    Once, Once

    Ashes burn the morning after
    Only know I'm here to stay
    I was so, I let you see me
    That was dumb, but that's OK
    Tripping down to your place
    What is love anyway

    I'm only gonna let you kill me once

    I'm only gonna let you kill me then some

    I'm only gonna let you kill me
    Once, Once, Once, yeah
    Once, Once, Once, yeah
    Once, Once, Once, yeah
    I'm only gonna let you kill me

    Who or whatever you do
    Don't let anyone love you
    Touch them where it hurts
    And then you'll leave

    I'm only gonna let you kill me once

    I'm only gonna let you kill me then some

    I'm only gonna let you kill me
    Once, Once, Once, yeah
    Once, Once, Once, yeah
    Once, Once, Once, yeah

    I'm only gonna let you kill me Writer/s: CATHY DENNIS, FRANCIS EG WHITE
