Verse 1:
Like a vortex
I’m bout to get sucked in
Like the ocean
I need a like preserver to live
Can you hear me
I’m sending you a sign
If we don’t fix this
How do you expect to stay alive

Hook:
Like a machine gun
You just keep shooting me down
Like some dirty ol clothes
You just keep wearing me out
Oh baby
I never knew there was a
Love like this before

Verse 2:
Story of my life
I just can’t let it go
They say it’s easy babe
Pain is love so
I hold on
Tell me can you hear me
Cause I’m speaking loud and clear
I know I’m not crazy
I just don’t like the sound of you not here

Hook:
But like a machine gun
You just keep shooting me down
Like some dirty ol clothes
You just keep wearing me out
Oh baby
I never knew there was a
Love like this before

Bridge:
I’m going crazy boy
Oh so crazy boy
How could we make this work
I’m giving you a choice
Is it me
Is it you
I don’t know
I’m so confused
You killing me softly
Killing me softly

Hook:
Like a machine gun
You just keep shooting me down
Like some dirty ol clothes
You just keep wearing me out
Oh baby
I never knew there was a
Love like this before
