KILLS YOU SLOWLY
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 knew you wouldn't take it
You walked a mile in Louis Vuittons
And fucked em up, you know that they're my favorite

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, hidden when we're in the open
Keep on smiling, 'till it's over
Hold it, even though it kills you slowly

Arguments that never end
You're talkin shit, to spice up conversation
I'm so sick of back and forth
These fights with you are starting to feel contagious
Said that I'm no good for you
Right before we walked into your parents'
Then you put on that smile again
And grabbed 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, hidden when we're in the open
Keep on smiling, 'till 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, hidden when we're in the open
Keep on smiling, 'till it's over
Hold it, even though it kills you slowly

Oh but, but it it, won't but, I said
(Hold it, even though it kills you slowly)
You hold on, hopin' it gon' stop, but it don't
Oh but, but it it, won't but, I said
(Explosions, hidden when we're in the open)
You hold on, hopin' it gon' stop, but it don't
(Keep on smiling, till 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
