"If Looks Could Kill" as written by and Tracyanne Campbell....
Maybe I can make it better
Tell me where it all went wrong
Cause you know that you really upset her
When you act like a man who is cross with every woman he's never had
If it's true looks could kill then you'd be the first to make me mad
Then you gotta go
Maybe you gotta go

Is this the kind of fate you could contemplate?
A breakdown at my very sight
I promise hidden words of tenderness in every single line that I write
Still you act like a man who is cross with every woman he's never had
If it's true looks could kill then you'd be the first to make me mad
Then you gotta go
Maybe you gotta go

Tell me where it all went wrong
Maybe I can make it better

Cause you act like a man who is cross with every woman he's never had
If it's true looks could kill then you'd be the first to make me mad
Cause you act like a man who is cross with every woman he's never had
If it's true looks could kill then you'd be the first to make me mad
Then you gotta go
Maybe you gotta go

If it's true, if looks could kill
If it's true, if looks could kill
Is it true, looks could kill?
Yeah, it's true, looks could kill

    General Commentfull, correct lyrics, according to me:

    Tell me where it all went wrong...

    Tell me where it all went wrong
    Maybe I can make it better
    Tell me where it all went wrong
    Cause you know that you really upset her
    When you act like a man who is cross with every woman he's never had
    If it's true looks could kill then you'd be the first to make me mad
    Then you gotta go
    Maybe you gotta go

    Is this the kind of fate you could contemplate?
    A breakdown at my very sight
    Or, "I promise hidden words of tenderness in every single line that I write"
    Still you act like a man who is cross with every woman he's never had
    If it's true looks could kill then you'd be the first to make me mad
    Then you gotta go
    Maybe you gotta go

    Tell me where it all went wrong
    Maybe I can make it better...

    Cause you act like a man who is cross with every woman he's never had
    If it's true looks could kill then you'd be the first to make me mad
    Cause you act like a man who is cross with every woman he's never had
    If it's true looks could kill then you'd be the first to make me mad
    Then you gotta go
    Maybe you gotta go

    If it's true, if looks could kill...
    If it's true, if looks could kill...
    Is it true, looks could kill?
    Yeah, it's true, looks could kill

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs off the new album. It's kind of reminiscent of something off Pet sounds.

    as far as corrections go, it sounds like it says
    If its true looks could kill
    Maybe you gotta gun

    but i could be wrong
    maybe you can make it better?

    its hard to tell with that glasgow accent

    best album to date i think
