Jimmy Somerville - Why ? Lyrics

Why ? by Jimmy Somerville


[Buy " Singles Collection 1984-90 " CD]


Why ?
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)

  1. Ain't necessarily so
  2. Comment te dire adieu
  3. Disenchanted
  4. Don't leave me this way
  5. For a friend
  6. I feel love
  7. Never can say goodbye
  8. Read my lips
  9. Run from love
  10. Small town boy
  11. So cold the night
  12. There's more to love than boy meets girl
  13. To love somebody
  14. Tomorrow
  15. Why ?
  16. You are my world
  17. You make me feel (mighty real)
