​The Thing You Love Is Killing You

This song is by Dolly Varden and appears on the album The Dumbest Magnets (2000).

I see your face, all is not well
You try to hide it away
But it's easy to tell

You stick to your guns
Even though you know it's true
The thing you love is killing you

When you were a kid inspiration called
Slowly you've narrowed it down
To a desk and a wall

You pour out your soul to a world
Who's indifference is spelled out for you
The thing you love is killing you

The thing you love won't let you sleep
Your house out of order and your resistance weak
And what could you offer with such desperate eyes?
You try to recover a year at a time

And when it's all over
What conclusion do you come to?
The thing you love is killing you

You pour out your soul to a world
Who's indifference is spelled out for you
The thing you love is killing you
The thing you love is killing you
