KILLING US (2023)

Conan Gray Killing me meaning

CONAN GRAY Killing Me | The only thing missing from Conan’s career was Max Martin

Conan Gray is the biggest rising male Pop star, so much so that many are already calling him the king of Generation Z. His exponential rise only lacked the magic touch of the greatest music producer of our time, Max Martin, responsible for The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights, among other. Killing Me is a highlight!

Conan Gray’s 3 great singles produced by Max Martin

After the success achieved in 2022 with his 2nd album ‘Superache‘, during 2023 Conan Gray has released 3 tracks that have something in common, the awesome producer Max Martin.

It’s a new beginning for Conan that will surely take him to even higher heights, if you don’t believe me, just listen to the infectious beat of ‘Never Ending Song that already accumulates 40 million streams.

The second single,Winner‘ is a ballad that speaks of Conan’s complicated adolescence. You can feel the pain in his voice as he sings the lyrics. Another great song.

The third and for us, best single is, ‘Killing Me’, the Emotion of the Week.

Conan Gray Never Ending Song

Conan Gray Winner

I wrote ‘killing me’ while I was sick with the flu. It was a miserable time where I was both physically sick, but also super heartbroken over somebody. Hence, ‘you’re KILLING me.’ I think we all have those people who don’t treat us nearly well enough, but we just can’t seem to let them go. People who call you at 2AM, and who you know you shouldn’t pick up……but you do. ‘Killing Me’ is for when you’re on your last limb begging this person t     o just please stop torturing your heart.

Conan Gray (about ‘Killing Me’)

Killing Me | Conan Gray pleads from his heart

With a beat as infectious as ‘Never Ending Song’, this track talks about the fine line between love and hate.

In ‘Killing Me’, his partner is treating Conan very badly, but despite this, he stays. Gray said:

I wrote the song at a time when I was heartbroken with heartbreak.

As is common with Max Martin-produced songs the track bursts quickly and is full of bone-crunching synths.

Conan performed at the Global Citizen 2023 Festival in New York’s Central Park and in front of nearly 300,000 people at Lollapalooza in Latin America. You are seeing the first steps of a new global star 🤩

Conan Gray 'Killing Me' Lyrics

It’s 2 AM, hear the cellular ringin’
Got the curious feelin’ you’re fiendin’ for love
But the thing is, we haven’t spoken for weeks
I love you bad, that’s the problem occurrin’
Better love I deserve, and I’m hurtin’
But sadly, I worship every moment we meet

So you take and you take ’cause you know you can
And I chase as you’re chasin’ another man
Try to break, see your face and I know that I can’t

Oh
You’re killing me
You’re not makin’ it easy (ah-ah-ah)
Too busy deceivin’ and cheatin’ and lyin’ and competin’
To know how lucky you are
You’re killing me
I just want you to free me (ah-ah-ah)
And though I am cryin’ and bleedin’ and barely breathin’
I can’t let go of your heart

I take your call, you say, “What’s the matter?”
Then you lie to me faster and faster, you’re such a good actor
I hear your car in the driveway
Now you’re tossin’ a rock at my windowpane
Said, “I don’t wanna talk, just go away”
But you claw at the locks ’til I let you invade

Oh
You’re killing me (killing)
You’re not makin’ it easy (ah-ah-ah)
Too busy deceivin’ and cheatin’ and lyin’ and competin’
To know how lucky you are
You’re killing me (killing)
I just want you to free me (ah-ah-ah)
And though I am cryin’ and bleedin’ and barely breathin’
I can’t let go of your heart

I wanna die, but you keep me alive
You’re killing me, you’re killing me
I wanna die, but you keep me alive
You’re killing me, you’re killing me
I wanna die, but you keep me alive
You’re killing me, you’re killing me
Fight to survive, oh, love of my life
You’re killing me

Oh-oh
You’re killing me (killing)
You’re not makin’ it easy (ah-ah-ah)
Too busy deceivin’ and cheatin’ and lyin’ and competin’
To know how lucky you are (oh)
You’re killing me (killing)
I just want you to free me (ah-ah-ah)
And though I am cryin’ and bleedin’ and barely breathin’
I can’t let go of your heart

I wanna die but you keep me alive
You’re killing me (killing), you’re killing me (killing, oh-oh)
I wanna die but you keep me alive
No, I can’t let go of your heart
You’re killing me (ha)

Conan Gray 'Killing Me' Lyrics in Spanish

Son las 2 de la madrugada, escucho el teléfono sonar
Tengo la curiosa sensación de que estás ansiosa de amor.
Pero el tema es, no hemos hablado en semanas
Te quiero mucho, ese es el verdadero problema
Merezco un amor mejor, y me duele
Pero tristemente, adoro cada momento que nos encontramos

Así que tomas y tomas porque sabes que puedes
Y te persigo mientras persigues a otro hombre
Trate de romper, ver tu cara y sé que no puedo

Oh
Me estas matando
No lo haces fácil (ah-ah-ah)
Demasiado ocupado, engañando y mintiendo y compitiendo
Para saber lo afortunado que eres
Me estas matando
Sólo quiero que me liberes (ah-ah-ah)
Y aunque estoy llorando y sangrando y apenas respirando
No puedo dejar ir tu corazón

Respondo a tu llamada y me dices: “¿Qué pasa?”
Entonces me mientes más y más rápido, eres tan buena actriz
Oigo tu coche en la entrada
Ahora estás lanzando una piedra al cristal de mi ventana
Dijiste, “No quiero hablar, solo vete”
Pero arañas las cerraduras hasta que te dejo entrar

Oh
Me estas matando
No lo haces fácil (ah-ah-ah)
Demasiado ocupado, engañando y mintiendo y compitiendo
Para saber lo afortunado que eres
Me estas matando
Sólo quiero que me liberes (ah-ah-ah)
Y aunque estoy llorando y sangrando y apenas respirando
No puedo dejar ir tu corazón

Quiero morir, pero tu me mantienes vivo
Me estas matando, me estas matando
Quiero morir, pero me mantienes vivo
Me estas matando, me estas matando
Quiero morir, pero me mantienes vivo
Me estás matando, me estás matando
Lucha para sobrevivir, oh, amor de mi vida
Me estás matando

Oh
Me estas matando
No lo haces fácil (ah-ah-ah)
Demasiado ocupado, engañando y mintiendo y compitiendo
Para saber lo afortunado que eres
Me estas matando
Sólo quiero que me liberes (ah-ah-ah)
Y aunque estoy llorando y sangrando y apenas respirando
No puedo dejar ir tu corazón

Quiero morir pero tu me mantienes vivo
Me estás matando (matando), me estás matando (matando, oh-oh)
Quiero morir pero me mantienes vivo
No, no puedo dejar ir tu corazón
Me estás matando (ha)
