Song: In For The Kill

Although we refuse to admit that our summer days are dwindling down, the truth is there's only a couple solid weeks of summer left. And while we're going to go out kicking and screaming, the only thing good that comes at the end of it is Fashion Week... Besides the clothes, the parties, the designers, the models, and the make-up, another thing to look forward every Fashion Week is the music. So here's one from last season's Chanel show that didn't disappoint.

LYRICS

We can fight our desires But when we start making fires We get ever so hot Whether we like it or not They say we can love who we trust But what is love without lust? Two hearts with accurate devotions And what are feelings without emotions?

I'm going in for the kill I'm doing it for a thrill Oh I'm hoping you'll understand And not let go of my hand (x2)

I hang my hopes out on the line Will they be ready for you in time If you leave them out too long They'll be withered by this song Full stops and exclamation marks My words stumble before I start How far can you send emotions? Can this bridge cross the ocean?

I'm going in for the kill I'm doing it for a thrill Oh I'm hoping you'll understand And not let go of my hand (x2)

Let's go to war To make peace Let's be cold To create heat I hope in darkness We can see And you're not blinded by the light from me

I'm going in for the kill I'm doing it for a thrill Oh I'm hoping you'll understand And not let go of my hand
