I thought it would be easy, but it ain't for me
It's kinda hard, when you lay your heart on a one way street
I really thought by now
You would've slipped my mind
But the kind of love sent from above is the killing kind

Put my mind to rest and try to sleep it off
It will be alright when the morning comes
Or am I wrong?

Ain't no doubt about it
I can't live without it
Tried to forget you
But I can't get you outta my head
Just when I think you're gone
You come back and turn it on
And just like a simple song
I can't get you outta my head

Well I saw you dancing, dancing in my dreams
I saw your face and I can't erase all the things I see
Even if I try, Cause Lord knows I tried
I can't escape and I can't shake the pain inside, oh

Crazy when she comes, and crazy as she goes
I'm holding out my hands with nothing left to show
I guess it's the way it goes

Ain't no doubt about it
I can't live without it
Tried to forget you
But I can't get you outta my head
Just when I think you're gone
You come back and turn it on
And just like a simple song
I can't get you outta my head
Can't get you outta my head
Can't get you outta my head

Crazy when she comes, and crazy as she goes
I'm holding out my hands with nothing left to show
Guess that's the way it goes
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can't get you outta my head
Can't get you, can't get you, oh

Ain't no doubt about it
I can't live without it
Tried to forget you
But I can't get you outta my head
Just when I think you're gone
You come back and turn it on
And just like a simple song
Can't get you outta my head
Can't get you outta my head
Can't get you outta my head

    I believe that the meaning of this song is that once you love someone, you will never lose all feeling for them, and they will have the ability to haunt your thoughts no matter how hard you try to keep that person off your thoughts. This is just how i percieve it, i highly doubt that i am correct.

    He maybe had a few 'thrills' with a girl and thought even though he already had very few feelings towards her it wouldn't be any more than just a thrill, but he then fell in love with the girl and tried so hard to take his mind off her but with everything he did he couldn't stop thinking about her but couldn't express his feelings and this song is his way of expressing his feelings to her because he's too scared to say it directly to her

    He saw a girl and couldn't forget her. The more he dwelled on it the more intrigued he became. That's how i perceive it.

    I know this feeling…after several years i still think of him. Neither of us were ready to leave each other but something happened that tore us apart. It left a ache in my heart. We hold out our hands but are too far apart to touch. And yet i can still feel the fire inside. Life has brought us to different places but we still think of each other often. It is, the killing kind of love.
