Lyrics

[Intro]
Billie

[Refrain]
What do you want from me? Why don't you run from me?
What are you wondering? What do you know?
Why aren't you scared of me? Why do you care for me?
When we all fall asleep, where do we go?

[Verse 1]
Come here
Say it, spit it out, what is it exactly
You're payin'? Is the amount cleanin' you out, am I satisfactory?
Today, I'm thinkin' about the things that are deadly
The way I'm drinkin' you down
Like I wanna drown, like I wanna end me

[Chorus]
Step on the glass, staple your tongue
Bury a friend, try to wake up
Cannibal class, killing the sun
Bury a friend, I wanna end me

[Post-Chorus]
I wanna end me
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna... end me
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna...

[Refrain]
What do you want from me? Why don't you run from me?
What are you wondering? What do you know?
Why aren't you scared of me? Why do you care for me?
When we all fall asleep, where do we go?

[Verse 2]
Listen
Keep you in the dark, what had you expected?
Me to make you my art and make you a star
And get you connected?
I'll meet you in the park, I'll be calm and collected
But we knew right from the start that you'd fall apart
'Cause I'm too expensive
Your talk'll be somethin' that shouldn't be said out loud
Honestly, I thought that I would be dead by now
Calling security, keepin' my head held down
Bury the hatchet or bury your friend right now

[Bridge]
For the debt I owe, gotta sell my soul
'Cause I can't say no, no, I can't say no
Then my limbs are froze and my eyes won't close
And I can't say no, I can't say no
Careful

[Chorus]
Step on the glass, staple your tongue
Bury a friend, try to wake up
Cannibal class, killing the sun
Bury a friend, I wanna end me

[Post-Chorus]
I wanna end me
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna... end me
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna...

[Refrain]
What do you want from me? Why don't you run from me?
What are you wondering? What do you know?
Why aren't you scared of me? Why do you care for me?
When we all fall asleep, where do we go?

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014.
