“Used to Love her, but I had to kill her”

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 9:47 pm

The Guns N Roses song “Used to Love Her” has been playing in my head. A lot. 

It’s my personal theme song at the moment — although I’m singing “Used to Love HIM”. Why? Because I’m getting rid of one of my main characters. Every time I have to delete one of his scenes, I start singing.

In case you don’t know this classic, I’m pasting the brilliant lyrics below:

USED TO LOVE HER  — Guns N Roses

I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I had to put her
Six feet under
And I can still hear her complain

I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I knew I miss her
So I had to keep her
She’s buried right in my back yard

I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, but I had to kill her
She bitched so much
She drove me nuts
And now I’m happier this way

I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I had to put her
Six feet under
And I can still hear her complain

  1. Wow. I salute you. I got rid of a major secondary character once, and I was traumatized for a week…
