“Love Kills”
Artist: Joe Strummer
Albums: Sid & Nancy (1986)

Walking out of England thinking you were the key to my heart's world
On that bus that goes to Mexico we kill our own fires, that sweet Mexican girl

But in Mississippi we'll rush you to the road, yeow
But down in Dixie you go crying for dope

Down in Alabama we like home cooked fare, yeah
So we're gonna strap you to the fryin' chair, yeah

Well, I don't know what the love is
But there's something else giving me the chills
But if my hands are the colour of blood
Then I can tell ya, sure I can tell ya

That love kills
Love kills
Love kills
Love kills

Do you wanna hear the sirens, all the sirens of the city coming after me?
River like a silent God, a population's bored, they don't care about your fame

Well, I don't know what the love is
But there's something else giving me the chills
But if my hands are the colour of blood
Then I can tell ya, sure I can tell ya

That love kills
Love kills
Love kills
Love kills

But on the Rio Grande they'll tie you to a tree (ohohoh ohohoh)
And you can't call the lawyers 'cause the whorehouse is asleep (ohohoh ohohoh)
You evil mother****** (ohohoh ohohoh)
They'll throw you in a cell where you barely can breathe (ohohoh ohohoh)

But I don't know what the love is
But there's something else giving me the chills
But if my hands are the colour of blood
Then I can tell ya, sure I can tell ya

That love kills
Love kills
Love kills
Love kills

The love kills
Love kills
Love kills
Love kills
