  • I think I'm drowning
    Asphyxiated
    I want to break the spell
    That you've created

    You're something beautiful
    A contradiction
    I want to play the game
    I want the friction

    You will be
    The death of me
    Yeah, you will be
    The death of me

    Bury it
    I won't let you bury it
    I won't let you smother it
    I won't let you murder it

    Our time is running out
    And our time is running out
    You can't push it underground
    We can't stop it screaming out

    I wanted freedom
    But I'm restricted
    I tried to give you up
    But I'm addicted

    Now that you know I'm trapped
    Sense of elation
    You'll never dream of breaking this fixation
    You will squeeze the life out of me

    Bury it
    I won't let you bury it
    I won't let you smother it
    I won't let you murder it

    Our time is running out
    And our time is running out
    You can't push it underground
    We can't stop it screaming out
    How did it come to this

    You will suck the life out of me

    Bury it
    I won't let you bury it
    I won't let you smother it
    I won't let you murder it

    Our time is running out
    And our time is running out
    You can't push it underground
    We can't stop it screaming out

  • Jeanette from Grong, NorwayI think it can be about a special girl, not like everyone else. But she isn't good for him. Still he can't forget about her, even though he know it isn't right. "Hiw did it come to this?" maybe she wasn't the one he thought.
