Charted: 61
  • You shut me down, you like the control
    You speak to me like I'm a child
    Try to hold it down, I know the answer
    I can shake it off and you feel threatened by me

    I tried to play it nice but
    Oh-oh-oh, ooh, ooh
    Don't kill my vibe
    Oh-oh-oh, ooh, ooh
    Don't break my stride (break my stride)

    You think you're so important to me, don't you?
    But I wanted you to know that you don't belong here
    You think you're so important to me, don't you?
    Don't kill my vibe (don't kill my vibe)

    You love to tear me down, you pick me apart
    Then build me up like I depend on you
    But I throw myself from heights that used to scare me
    Guess you're surprised I'm the puzzle you can't figure out

    I tried to play it nice but
    Oh-oh-oh, ooh, ooh
    Don't kill my vibe
    Oh-oh-oh, ooh, ooh
    Don't break my stride
    (I tried to play it nice but)

    You think you're so important to me, don't you?
    But I wanted you to know that you don't belong here
    You think you're so important to me, don't you?
    Don't kill my vibe (don't kill my vibe)
    (Don't kill my vibe)
    (Don't break my stride)
    (Oh-oh-oh, ooh, ooh)
    (Don't kill my vibe)
    (Oh-oh-oh, ooh, ooh)
    (Don't break my stride)

    Say I'm young, I don't care, I won't quit, no, no, no, ho
    Say I'm young, I don't care, I won't quit, no, no, no, ho
    And oh-oh-oh-oh
    You're acting like you hurt me but I'm not even listening
    Hey, no-ooh-ooh-ooh
    You're acting like you hurt me but I'm not even listening
    Don't kill
    Don't kill my vibe

    You think you're so important to me, don't you?
    But I wanted you to know that you don't belong here
    You think you're so important to me, don't you?

    I tried to play it nice but
    Oh-oh-oh, ooh, ooh
    Don't kill my vibe
    Oh-oh-oh, ooh, ooh
    Don't break my stride
    (I tried to play it nice but)

    You think you're so important to me, don't you?
    But I wanted you to know that you don't belong here
    You think you're so important to me, don't you?
    Don't kill my vibe (don't kill my vibe) Writer/s: Martin Sjoelie, Sigrid Solbakk Raabe
