I Only Want to Be Loved (feat. Hyper Sleep Child)

from by The Last Surrealist

about

This song is about domestic violence from the perspective of the victim.

lyrics

why do you feel the need to point a gun at me
i have always wondered what I’ve done to deserve it

maybe you just have sadistic tendencies
that could explain your behavior
you may as well just kill me
my life is obviously of no value to you

baby why you treat me like this?
baby why you treat me like this?
baby why you treat me like this?
baby why you treat me like this?

you make me want to slit my wrists
how can anyone be expected to live like this?

in the black dungeon of violence
you tear my flesh
clean from the bone
but I only want to be loved…

i just want to feel
like I’m not going to die in my home
and maybe that god will save me
from feeling so alone

baby why you treat me like this?
baby why you treat me like this?
baby why you treat me like this?
baby why you treat me like this?
