  1. You Kill Me

From The Recordings Html

A study asked men and women what they most feared about each other. While women go through life fearing violence from men, the men said their worst fear about women was being laughed at. Quite a power imbalance, and the inspiration for this song.

Lyrics

VERSE 1
One day you’ll feel something strange, a subtle change in your surroundings
One day you’ll feel the scales tip and you’ll say, “Oh-oh, party’s over”
And I know it’s gonna hurt you and I know it’s gonna change the way you
Look at me
I know you’re out there, I know you’re in there
I know you’re out there, if I’m your worst fear

CHORUS
You kill me with kindness
You kill me with lies
You kill me with silence...
And with your big sad eyes
VERSE 2
One day you’re gonna cross the street, gonna feel the cold hand of a stranger
One day you’re gonna be the meat and you’ll say, “Oh my God, that’s what it’s like”
And I know it’s gonna hurt you and I know it’s gonna change the way you
Look at things
I know you’re out there, I know you’re in there
I know you’re out there, if I’m your worst fear

CHORUS
You kill me with kindness
You kill me with lies
You kill me with silence...
And with your big sad eyes

VERSE 3
One day we’re gonna reach the end of all the roads that we’ve been racing
One day you’re gonna look back and you’ll say, “A lot of good that did me”
And I know it’s gonna hurt you and I know it’s gonna change the way you
do things next time - next time?
I know you’re out there, I know you’re in there
I know you’re out there, if I’m your worst fear

CHORUS
You kill me with kindness
You kill me with lies
You kill me with silence...
And with your big sad eyes
