killing me slowly lyrics – julia fordham

i confess, there’s a chance
i cannot fake it any longer
i admit, this could be it
there’s a danger i’m going under
i know that yesterday
you saw me stronger than the sun
then one cold word from you
and swiftly i’ve come undone

and your love’s killing me slowly
killing me one day at a time
killing me slowly
it’s the sweetest suicide
it’s the sweetest suicide

killing me slowly

your firm hand on the door
my brave little foot keeping it open
my whole self on the line
there’s a danger i might get broken
slip your pill under my tongue
and willingly i succ*mb
cup my heart in your palm
and squeeze it ’til the red stuff runs

and your love’s killing me slowly
killing me one day at a time
killing me slowly
it’s the sweetest suicide
it’s the sweetest suicide

killing me slowly

for a moment there
you know i almost fooled myself
into thinking i was in control of how i felt
striving towards salvation
clutching my last drop of dignity
go on take the pillow
smother me, smother me

and your love’s killing me slowly
killing me one day at a time
killing me slowly
it’s the sweetest suicide
it’s the sweetest suicide
