"Kill Me" as written by Taylor Momsen, Ben Phillips and Kato Khandwala....
Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone

Let me open up the discussion with
I'm not impressed
With any mother fucking word I say
See I lied that I cried
When he came inside
And now I'm burning a highway Hades

Shut the fuck up
When I'm trying to think
I gotta keep my concentration
Give me one more drink
And then I'll try to remember all the advice
That my good book told me

And all the lost souls say
Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me just kill me)
Or get me out of the sun
Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me just kill me)
Someone get me out of the sun

Drugs, bars, backseats of cars blowing boys
What a boring life I've led so far
Just a prime thirteen
When I rode his machine
Tried to keep my body dirty
And my eyes closed and clean

So with a wink
And a smile and a vial of meth
I took his hand
And then we walked through the shadow of death
And then I tried to remember all the advice that my teacher told me

And all the lost souls say
Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me just kill me)
Or get me out of the sun
Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me just kill me)
And get me out of the sun
Someone get me out of the sun
Someone get me out of the sun

Deep, deeper, deeper inside
Pull the wool nice and tight
So that it covers your eyes
Can't find a god, love, Jesus, father
I don't even care that much
So why do I even bother?

So let me just end how I was gonna begin
Don't waste your time waiting 'cause I'm going back in
Now if I could just remember all the advice that my mother told me

And all the
And all the lost souls say
Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me just kill me)
Or get me out of the sun
Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me just kill me)
Just get me out of the sun
(Kill me just kill me)
Someone get me out of the sun
(Kill me just kill me)
Someone get me out of the sun

    My InterpretationI'm not sure if this is what Taylor was thinking when she wrote this, but I interpret it being about prostitution.
    "Every day I wake up alone" -She does her "job" at night, and wakes up alone without anyone the next morning.
    "See I didn't cry when he came inside" -She doesn't enjoy her job and is just doing it for the money...she's not into it
    "Drugs, bars, back seats of cars" -Self-explanatory...
    "So with a wink and smile and a vile of meth, I took his hand and we walked through the shadow of dead" -She's on duty..
    With the advice lyrics, she's remembering what her mother, teacher, etc. told her which could be like to get a real job, become successful..stuff along those lines.

    My OpinionI think she just means she is a lost soul and her life is shit. She is doing all these bad things (drugs, sex, etc.) and I think she's saying shes just lost in this world so she results in doing all that stuff. She says she tries to remember what the good book (the Bible), her teacher, and her mother told her but at the end of the day, their advice does not matter. At least now it doesn't cause she is too far gone. I kind of get this feeling when I listen to any one of Taylor's songs. Shes just lost. But she's amazing and her music is the best so I don't care. :)

    General CommentFor anyone after the correct lyrics, here they are. I've used the lyric correction form but don't know whether they actually make the changes on here.

    General CommentI think its either about prostitution or taylor being out of control as a teenager! Whether or not thats actually happened I don't know! Though taylor HAS hinted at having bad experiences as a teenager so maybe this song is about that! Anyway love taylor momsen and love the pretty reckless and like this song! (Although not one of my favourites)!
