It Kills Me


It kills me that you feel that way
It kills me that I have nothing to say
It kills me that you have to cry
It kills me that I have to ask why
It kills me that you're hurting inside
It kills me that all i can do is stand beside
It kills me you have to carry that burden
It kills me you can't make it through the night
It kills me that I can't make it right
