Song Description

Anger and bitterness arise in the main protagonist of the song as she looks at her faltering relationship and how the codependence that evolved between the two parties has kept her in an unhealthy situation for far too long. She's tired of the lies, the h

Story Behind the Song

Amy Speace recently went through the dissolution of her 10 year marriage, and wrote both the song and the album entitled "The Killer in Me" to reflect on that process.

Lyrics

THE KILLER IN ME
(SPEACE/BALKEY)

The killer in me loves the killer I see in you
The killer in me loves the killer I see in you
I'm a gonna tell you what I need
Cut so deep just to watch me bleed
The killer in me loves the killer I see in you

The lover in you don't mean the things you say
The lover in you don't mean the things you say
When you cut my heart like you got no shame
Hurts so good, I wanna share the blame
The lover in you don't mean the things you say

The liar you hide has found the thief in me
The liar you hide has found the thief in me
Held up the truth with a loaded gun
Shot at its feet just to watch it run
The liar you hide has found the thief in me

So shade your eyes and cover up your heart
So I can bear my breast with its crooked scar
Float on our backs beneath the stars
We'll leave it all behind in the resevoir

Because the leaver in me can't quit the leaver in you
The leaver in me can't quit the leaver in you
Won't keep nothing when we go
Burn the bridge that's all we know
The leaver in me can't quit the leaver in you
Cause the killer in me loves the killer I see in you
