“Murder In My Heart”

Sheryl Crow

 

 

I used to love a boy

I still see him in these rooms

His head was like the summer

And his voice was like the moon

Sometimes he makes me heavy

A deeper shade of blue

And there’s murder in my heart

And there’s nothing I can do

 

I used to love a boy

But now he’s two years dead

I hear myself repeating what my father always said

Don’t let it make you bitter

And watch while you’re blue

I got murder in my heart

But I’d rather die instead

 

Somebody would’ve taken on a lover

Does anybody need another friend

Right now anybody doesn’t need

I kinda like the ocean

With its arms stretched open wide

But I know what it means to be dragged out with the tide

And to fight from going under

And to keep myself alive

And there’s murder in my heart

And there’s water in my eyes

 

Went out late last night

Just to get a little air

And I walked beneath the streetlights

And I saw nobody there

Just a bitterness that followed me

A saddening surprise

There’s murder in my heart

And I made me that way

There’s murder in my heart

I can’t take make it go away
