I know, I know, I know, I know, know I, I know it, I know it (I know, I know, I know, I know, know)
The most beautiful thoughts are always besides the darkest Today I seriously thought about killing you I contemplated, premeditated murder And I think about killing myself And I love myself way more than I love you, so Today I thought about killing you, premeditated murder You'd only care enough to kill somebody you love The most beautiful thoughts are always beside the darkest (Mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhmm) Just say it out loud to see how it feels People say, "Don't say this, don't say that" Just say out loud, just to see how it feels Weigh all the options, nothing's off the table Today I thought about killing you, premeditated murder I think about killing myself, and I, I love myself way more than I love you The most beautiful thoughts are always beside the darkest (Mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhmm) I think this is the part where I'm supposed to say something good To compensate it so it doesn't come off bad But sometimes I think really bad things Really, really, really bad things And I love myself way more than I love you See, if I was trying to relate it to more people I'd probably say I'm struggling with loving myself Because that seems like a common theme But that's not the case here I love myself way more than I love you And I think about killing myself So, best believe, I thought about killing you today Premeditated murder

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
