Tell me where it all went wrong Maybe I can make it better Tell me where it all went wrong Don’t 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 and you will be the first to make me mad Then you’ll have to 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 and you will be the first to make me mad Then you’ll have to go Maybe you’ll have to go Is it true looks can kill? Is it true looks can kill? Is it true looks can kill?

I’ve been hanging round Everywhere you go in town Watching you forget me I want to see you crack I’m going to get you back Put your hands up baby You’re talking to me like I’m in your debt You don’t remember things I can’t forget Now you don’t look so well Turn that gun back on yourself And take a load off baby I’ve had enough this time Give me back my boots you swine It’s your fault you hate me I only hate you ‘cause I hate myself It breaks my heart that I can’t wish you well Now I could end this here Die and take you with me dear It could be so easy I don’t care what you do I’ll still be rid of you Just make your mind up baby I’ll turn around I’ll walk away from you If I turn back I’ll be the death of you

Alaska 03:11
I’m in love with the Hawthorn Sure I like the Birch I need a hand, a volunteer Why does the Sycamore mean so much? Do you dream of a cold Alaska? Better wrap up warm tonight All I know is we’re in a blue time Where the land is snow drop white You were such a pretty one You had a kid Did you have any idea of the damage you did I’m in love with the Hawthorn Sure I like the Birch I need a hand, a volunteer Why does the Sycamore mean so much? Is this the day that loneliness takes a hold of me? I’ve been stupid, unkind but I’m not too blind too see

I love how your eyes close whenever you kiss me And when I’m away from you I love how you miss me I love the way you always treat me tenderly But darling most of all I love how you love me I love how your heart beats whenever I hold you I love how you think of me without being told to I love the way your touch is always heavenly But darling most of all I love how you love me I love how your eyes close whenever you kiss me And when I’m away from you I love how you miss me I love the way your touch is always heavenly But darling most of all I love how you love me I love how you hug me I love how you squeeze me, please me, tease me love how you love me I love how you love me

about

"If looks could kill" es la tercera canción escogida como single del celebrado tercer elepé de CAMERA OBSCURA, del que podríamos estar extrayendo joyas de pop melódico desde la primera hasta la última canción. Junto a la canción titular, destinada a ser bailada en los mejores clubs de pop gracias a su imbatible ritmo Motown y su sonido prestado de Phil Spector, en el formato CD-single se incluyen dos nuevos temas previamente inéditos: "Hands up baby" (un dueto compuesto y cantado por Kenny con el contrapunto vocal de Tracyanne, grabado durante las mismas sesiones del álbum en Suecia, y que los presenta a ambos como trasuntos escoceses de Lee Hazlewood y Nancy Sinatra en un día nublado) y el recentísimo "Alaska", tema nuevo de envolvente sonido atmosférico y ambiente inspirado en FLEETWOOD MAC, grabado el último fin de semana de Octubre por Paul Savage (THE DELGADOS) en los estudios Chem 19 de Glasgow (donde han grabado entre otros Vashti Bunyan, TRASH CAN SINATRAS, Scout Niblett o TEENAGE FANCLUB).

As usual, the 7" is a limited edition vinyl release, and it features an exclusive, previously unreleased B-side: a cover version of Phil Spector and the PARIS SISTERS' eternal classic tune, "I love how you love me".
