Kill Lyrics - Jimmy Eat World

Review The Song (21)

Well, you're just across the street
Looks a mile to my feet
I want to go to you
Funny how I'm nervous still
I've always been the easy kill
I guess I always will

Could it be that everything goes 'round by chance? (chance?)
Or only one way that it was always meant to be (be)
You kill me, you always know the perfect thing to say (hey hey, hey hey)
I know what I should do, but I just can't walk away

I can picture your face well
From the bar in my hotel
I wish I'd go to you
I pick up put down the phone
Like your favorite Heatmeiser song goes
It's just like being alone

Oh God, please don't tell me this has been in vain (vain)
I need answers for what all the waiting I've done means (means)
You kill me, you've got some nerve, but can't face your mistakes (hey hey, hey hey)
I know what I should do, but I just can't turn away

So go on love
Leave while there's still hope for escape
Got to take what you can these days
There's so much ahead
So much regret
I know what you want to say
(Know what you want to say)
I know it but can't help feeling differently
I loved you, and I should have said it
But tell me just what has it ever meant

I can't help it baby, this is who I am (am)
Sorry, but I can't just go turn off how I feel (feel)
You kill me, you build me up, but just to watch me break (hey hey, hey hey)
I know what I should do, but I just can't walk away

Couldn't believe it... | Reviewer: Cat | 12/11/11

So, right now, my marriage is falling apart and I know it's gonna end. This guy I've been friends with for over a year I find out has had feelings for me the entire time. We've been talking and this song apparently came up when he was working. It fits what he's feeling right now to a T and I have to agree. I do like this guy, but I can't do anything yet and do we're stuck at the moment between friends and more. Thanks for the eloquence, Jimmy Eat World. ^^

Relation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/25/11

What makes this song so amazing is that everyone can relate to it in any way, although perhaps not all the way out.

I am in love with still one girl who haven't probably even noticed me, but the things is still this girl is the hardest girl ever to get to know. Very few in my class knows her for real, and I just want to know all about her. We will never be together, but I just can't turn off how I feel. She kills me, as I think of her all the time. I have never dared to tell a girl how I feel face to face, but it's because I am an easy kill.

I will ask her out soon though, first time I ever do such a thing, as I need answers for all the waiting I've done.

Perfect. | Reviewer: AG | 1/3/11

This song describes the "relationship" me and this guy had better than anything else. And all the sadness and bitterness I can hear when he says

"I loved you, and I should have said it
But tell me just what has it ever meant"

perfectly sum up everything I'd like to say to him now. This song is a major tear jerker for me. Not every 'love' song can actually tug at your heart and make you feel those feelings again but this is one that can. It's beautiful.

ashamed to admit | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/25/09

...that this song puts a lump in my throat and sometimes even makes me well up.

Even though I'm happy in a relationship now the lyrics fit eerily to the story of my ex-girlfriend who could never admit she did anything wrong, yet I still clung to her and her ego like a helpless hostage.

so jimmy eat world | Reviewer: Nathy | 10/11/09

What I love love love about they're lyrics is the one thing: at first you think its pretty plain and simple, yet beautiful...but when you look/hear a little closer you realize how many ways to interpretate it has... how deep the lyrics are. never heard someone putting so much meaning in so simple words, and even if its just that "kill" to mean murder or to mean "get someone to sleep with you" J E W ...great....

Made me cry | Reviewer: Ruthie | 10/3/09

When I heard this song I'd just realized that I was in love with this guy who couldn't care less. Every time I hear it I'm just like do what he can't walk away. It's a beautiful and difficult song and I've been listening to it for like the past week

Amazing | Reviewer: Amanda | 9/23/09

I have never had a song relate to me so much. The first time I heard i it gave me chills because it expressed perfectly what I couldn't put into words. Every part of this song hits home for me, and I love this song even more when I hear it with the melody

So Meaningful! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/7/08

Such a well written song and it really showed how my husband and I felt before we got together.
We met when I was 11, he was 14 and for me it was Love at first sight, I always knew we would end up together.
We spent a lot of time apart but remained close friends. We supported each other through relationship after relationship but always waiting for the right time to tell each other how we felt.

We were married last summer after 12 years of friendship.

Best song:) | Reviewer: Samantha | 1/11/08

Ahhhhhh this is my exact situation, which is kind of depressing really
Even the across the street thing.. only hes my next door neighbour at our farm.
lol its an awsome song, i LOVE it!

Kill | Reviewer: The Kat on the Kite | 12/23/07

This song is superb! {Gawd i KNOW i did not just say that} Its JUST how my situation is. I think this song describes how someone lead another person on making them think there could be something more. I dunno thats just the way i see it.

Favorite Song | Reviewer: Peter | 5/20/07

I heard this song on the album, and instantly fell in love.. then i saw them perform it LIVE, and it just struck a chord with me hearing it live that one time, and it went from an awesome song to the best.

I highly reccemend it. it makes you go up and down, and back again.
