The Killing Of You
Drewett

I dreamed I saw you
again last night
You won’t leave me be
I dreamed I saw you
again last night
You were screaming at me

Chorus:
I blame myself, I blame myself, I blame myself, I blame myself
For the killing of you

You once said to me
There are three things I love in my life
Smoking and drinking and being with you
But you, only you, could never harm me
Your tenderness cleanses my soul from the fear of death

Chorus

We didn’t need marriage cos we were in love
the law of averages we were above
an end to those lonely nights
and sleeping with people who just were not right

but how was I to know
That as we made love
I was robbing you of your anti-bodies
someone else’s past had appeared in our blood
and the self-righteous draw attention away from themselves.
Well, every generation burns its witches
no matter what common sense may prevail.

Chorus 
 
 
We didn’t need marriage cos we were in love
the law of averages we were above
an end to those lonely nights
and sleeping with people who just were not right
I’ve been banging my head
on this table all night
sketching matchstick men in the pool of tears
the pool of tears I will not let dry
and your loving memory
stabs me from out of the gloom
like Harpies they hover above my head
making damn sure that I don’t forget you
making damn sure that I don’t forget you
making damn sure that I’ll always love you

Chorus
