‘Cause you bleed all the time.
The pieces of a broken heart are wasted time.

And I can’t forgive myself for all the things I’ve done.
But you, you do.

Bleed one more time for me.
‘Cause my heart is filled with loneliness.
And this world is filled with loneliness.
Bleed one more time for me.
‘Cause the struggles of this world are blistering. Blistering.

Your cells run through my veins.
The times you lifted a dead man. That’s me again.

And I can’t forgive myself for all the things I’ve done.
But you, you do.

Bleed one more time for me.
‘Cause my heart is filled with loneliness.
And this world is filled with loneliness.
Bleed one more time for me.
‘Cause the struggles of this world are blistering.

Bleed one more time for me.
‘Cause the struggles of this world are blistering. Blistering.

    General CommentCould this song be any more amazing? Honestly.. I love the harder stuff on the cd to but.... man, this song is... wow. I e-mailed Zach and asked about this song and here's what he had to say about it...

    "Bliss Tearing Eyes was very personal song for me and brandon. So many people look up to me and the other guys, and sometimes i don't think they should because I am everything but a role model, and that is what us, as a band wanted to say with this album. That we screw up all the time and sometimes we do things that some people look down upon, but all in all we are just people like everyone else. Its OK to mess up. Everybody does it, but only the cool people admit that they do. That is what is wrong with christianity today. Everyone wants to point the finger at someone else when they really need to be turning it on themselves. I love god and no judgment on me will ever change that. I just wanted to tell God how much he meant to me in that song. and basically say thank you for everything he has done in my life. Bleed one more time for me- is saying that I am still going to need god from now until forever and i won't stop needing him because I am nothing but perfect."

    An amazing song by an amazing band.. lyrically perfect, musically moving.. what more could you want in a song?

    General Commentwhat a song. a friend of mine and i got in a theological discussion about this song, and she couldn't see the beauty. it saddens me, because it is so touching. how many times do i make Jesus have to "bleed one more time for me"? a lot more than he deserves.
