Why ? by Jimmy Somerville


Red (Somerville/Coles)
Like the knife of a thief that's held close to the throat
I'm threatened by you and the cruel way you gloat
You once turned me on, now all it seems so remote
You broke me in pieces, you cherished each blow;
The harder you hit me, the stronger I grow
I'll leave you tomorrow, take my pride and I'll go
You may break the skin but you can't kill the soul
I've had all I can take
I'm leaving tomorrow
I'm leaving tomorrow
I'm leaving, I've had all I can take
Don't tell me you love me, your tears are too late
Your trap was deception, and I took the bait
The animal in you, you can't keep at bay
I'm not your possession to treat as you wish
Your silence will slowly destroy you each day
I'm leaving tomorrow, my love for life is great
You may break the skin but you can't kill the soul
I've had all I can take
I've had all I can take
I've had all I can take
I've had all I can take
I'm leaving tomorrow
I'm leaving tomorrow
I'm leaving, yes I'm leaving
You broke me in pieces, you cherished each blow;
The harder you hit me, the stronger I grow
I'll leave you tomorrow, take my pride and I'll go
I'm leaving tomorrow... (to fade)
