Van Etten, Sharon - Your Love Is Killing Me Lyrics




It's understood
You'll be a man by the time I see you
We've been through better days
And you've tasted all my pain

Break my legs so I won't walk to you
Cut my tongue so I can't talk to you
Burn my skin so I can't feel you
Stab my eyes so I can't see
You like it when I let you walk over me
You tell me that you like it
Your love is killing me

Try to tell you this when I'm sober, how I feel about loving you
Try to remember all the turn of events
Being led by our own fantasies, fantasies

Break my legs so I won't walk to you
Cut my tongue so I can't talk to you
Burn my skin so I can't feel you
Stab my eyes so I can't see
You like it when I let you walk over me
You tell me that you like it
When our minds become diseased

There he let it go, his temper, standing there
See her with his gun and he, steals love so he can feel alive
Everyone's knees knockin' at the fear of love
Taste blood
Everybody needs to feel

Break my legs so I won't run to you
Steal my soul so I am one with you
From a distance I am on to you
But I'll stab my eyes out so I can't see
You like it
When I let you walk over me
You tell me that you like it
You love me as you torture me
You told me that you liked it
But I won't let you see
All that I can do is what I can
With this pain you've given me
With this pain you've given me
Your love is killing me
Yes all your pain is killing me

  24. Matthew Snyder

    Carla Juri's performance in Blade Runner: 2049 was one of my favorites in film that year. What she does in this video reminds me of something Zach Condon wrote upon the release of the The Rip Tide music vid: that sometimes a song can be constrained by its form, and a visual element can unlock a hidden vein of meaning.


    I can't hear The Rip Tide without visualizing that boat upon the water, and the subsequent explosion of color. Same goes for this song and the pain Juri conveys without saying a word.

  25. Izaro Benasque

    I just love it...

    It's understood
    You'll be a man by the time I see you
    We've been through better days
    And you've tasted all my pain

    Break my legs so I won't walk to you

    Burn my skin so I can't feel you

    You like it when I let you walk over me
    You tell me that you like it
    Your love is killing me

    Try to tell you this when I'm sober, how I feel about loving you
    Try to remember all the turn of events
    Being led by our own fantasies, fantasies

    Break my legs so I won't walk to you

    Burn my skin so I can't feel you
    Stab my eyes so I can't see
    You like it when I let you walk over me

    Ditto.....walk away and forget you ever knew me.

    LEAVE ME ALONE

    Essa música faz parte da minha Playlist de músicas para chorar largado, junto com Mil Pedaços - Legião Urbana, Writer in the Dark - Lorde, Old Money - Lana Del Rey e Love Ridden - Fiona Apple.

    Amazing song

    What a master stroke having Carla Juri in your music video!

  56. Mateus Faria

  57. Golden Boy Productions

    Love this video, I could watch Carla Juri walk all day, and when she walks out at the end and bites her lip...

  58. danger1980

    The real kicker in this video comes in the final frame when her happiness at the revenge dissolves to sadness and possibly even guilt. A powerhouse acting performance.

    Esperanza Barajas

    Is this an actual movie?

  59. Nicolas Vasquez

    Hands down one of the best albums of the century

  60. Mikayla

    Wish I looked that good during my breakdowns

  61. Charles Cope

    Never play this music if you are feeling depressed. Seriously, good though it is, it can tip you over the edge.

  62. Nathália Coimbra

    this girl looks like paz de la huerta but with out the lips

  63. Gabi Duarte

    I had once loved someone like this, and it's so sick to a point that you can't even hide your feelings, within they're good or bad for you, this music helped me through some deep shit, and it still does, thank you Sharon van etten <33

  64. Larissa Felix

    Como eu não conheci antes ?

  65. Sean McCrindle

    If you dont like this song you must be deaf

  73. educervera

    The first scene. Instant cinema classic!

  74. Peter Harter

    What a rare combination of power, control, and expressiveness. Very impressive from a purely vocal standpoint. She's a mixture of Janis and Delores.

  75. fclavijo

    ok looping

  76. Miguel Luis

    que clipe perfeito😍😍😍

  77. Durolec

    Sorry, I should've watched the entire video to understand what happened at min. 2:58

  78. Durolec

    2:58 What she's doing, is she peeing?

    Matheus R. R. Kortz

    she's putting blood on her sleeves

  79. Sofia Aldana

    This song is so sad, but i love it ❤

  80. André Viana

    It's a man?

    Matheus R. R. Kortz

    she is putting blood on her sleeves

    ela está colocando sangue nas mangas da camiseta

  81. Stefania Dog Sitter Bologna

    Do you understand why she faints at the pub?

    nu range

    Vanilla Punk I'm guessing because she knows he's used to her cutting her wrist....so he anticipated seeing multiple cuts, and then she shows him not this time!! But I'm not really sure

    bollocknaked1975

    Stefania Dog Sitter Bologna . its a wind up, thats why shes laughing

  82. Jarkko Roto

    It's about violence.

    Powerful. Really powerful.

  87. E T

    So fucking good. She emotes like a motherfucker!

  88. ENDER

    How can some of the most beautiful music in the world be accompanied by such an awful film? This is lazy writing and a really lazy conception for a video. It actually starts off so intriguing, making us really invest in this character. But then the idea for the video is actually unrelated to the first scene, because the meat of the film is in the character walking, and that's it, just walking. This video is actually, boring. No one would ever watch this twice, or show it to a friend, except just to hear the song. Music videos are supposed to be inventive films that pay tribute to their source material (the song they're made for) with some original visualizations that make you connect to the song on a deeper level. This video misses the connection to the audience... it's well edited, well shot, well acted, but amateurishly written and too safe of a video-concept for an artist who's music is more than just superficial themes. Like we're not making pop-country videos here, we're making videos for a voice of a generation. Really saddened by the lackluster videos put out by Sharon Van Etten.

    grey 7

    i did not like the shaky cam and narrow fov, and yes something lacking. walking videos can be good, like the single shot Unfinished Sympathy, which later inspired Bittersweet Symphony's vid. and Massive Attack's Live With Me is a great downward spiral video.

    Alan Stenglein

    The woman shows us right off the bat she's a POS. I had no empathy for her. Displaced violence. Manipulative and deceitful. Love Sharon Van Etten; hate this video and the character it portrays.

    Absolightly

    I like your critique Ender (see end for my question to you?) and after thinking about whether you're justified, I watched the clip more critically and, for my tastes) agree - I must say that I didn't really pay too much notice beyond trying to weigh how much "real meat" was behind the visual elements of SVE's emotive non verbal performance - which totally sold me on her (sincerity) and really touched a place for me personally (her screams felt like the screams I'd like to share - and would share - with a girl worth knowing - it made me want that imaginary her in my life) . And for my early 40's memories, the track is so but somehow glorifying of that time - it makes me feel like we were in the last generation who felt any real freedom to make, and survive, all those little character-building and youthful mistakes - for me it is so perfectly bittersweet (I feel something similar with Arcade Fire's "suburbs") I really felt many of our lives read that way - when the world was small and we were the hot young in-demand things - seeing the simplicity of our own rules - and thinking that was enough) that now after your comments, I think it deserves a more original video. Some of the imagery is really slapshift and clumsy (shit doesn't need to cost much to have an impact) i.e. the above the danger of the water on a ladder then see the ladder fall... ok but at least have the ladder mean something more (young version trying to climb her own without the support strut out - or leaning on sharon's back etc. QUESTION for you: tell me one of your ideas for the clip and 'ill respond with double - then we'll combine and/or pick parts - then if we like it enough... make it and send it along to SVE as a fan clip - if she like's it then we'll ask for permission to post it... perhaps? Jamo.

    I guess I am just an uneducated idiot. I think its a great video. It touches me.
