The Chainsmokers – Kills You Slowly Lyrics

Kills You Slowly Lyrics by The Chainsmokers


Made plans with me and all your friends
I’m late again, I hate to keep you waiting
Tried to be a gentleman, got drunk again before I even made it
Tried to call a car for you, you’re tired of me, I know you wouldn’t take it
You walked a mile in Louboutin and fucked ’em up, you know that they’re my favourite
But we dress up and play pretend
Then we act like we’re good again
I do things I can’t defend
And even when you hold it in

Hold it even though it kills you slowly
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open
Keep on smilin’ until it’s over
Hold it even though it kills you slowly

Arguments that never end, you talkin’ shit, despise the conversation
I’m so sick of back and forth, these fights with you are startin’ to feel contagious
Said that I’m no good for you right before we walk into your parents’
Then you put on that smile again and grab my hand even though you hate it

But we dress up and play pretend
Then we act like we’re good again
I do things I can’t defend
And even when you hold it in

Hold it even though it kills you slowly
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open
Keep on smilin’ until it’s over
Hold it even though it kills you slowly

Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said
You hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t
Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said
You hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t

Hold it even though it kills you slowly
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open
Keep on smilin’ until it’s over
Hold it even though it kills you slowly

Hold it even though it kills you slowly (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)
Keep on smilin’ until it’s over (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)
Hold it even though it kills you slowly (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)
