"Gimme Stitches" as written by Taylor Hawkins, David Eric Grohl and Nate Mendel....
I can be your right of way
So we can get out of here
I've always been the one
Who runs from everyone
Cos everyone's just too weird

Sink with someone tied to me
I'm making you volunteer
Another one has come and gone
They crawl along
Make them disappear

Dress me up in stitches
It's now or never
Tired of wearing black and blue
Dress me up in stitches
It's now or never
Tired of wearing black and blue
Dying to get my blood on you
Blood on you

Take another stab at me
I promise in time I'll heal
But yesterday went on and on a bit too long
I waited out on high street
There's nothing to find out here
Another day has come and gone
They crawl along
Wasting all these years

Dress me up in stitches
It's now or never
Tired of wearing black and blue
Dress me up in stitches
It's now or never
Tired of wearing black and blue
Dying to get my blood on you
Blood on you

How can you go on
When you're murdering someone
Killing me like you do

Gimme stitches
Now or never

Before I get my blood on you

    General CommentI think this song could be about a relationship he's in and his girl is hurting him constantly so he's just telling her to finsih him and get it over with... or... I think it could be about him being bullied!? Dunno, can't make up my mind... anyone else?

    General CommentI really think it's about being able to trust someone in a relationship. I think it's saying he's been hurt so many times that if she's going to hurt him she should go ahead and do it because he's sick of always giving his heart then getting it stepped on. Anyone else think differently?

    General Commenti'd agree with that. to me this definitely sounds like he's in a relationship with this girl who continuously hurts him...

    General CommentI agree with the idea its a guy with relationship problems.
    'How can you go on when you're murdering someone Killing me like you do' This does seem to emply that she keeps hurting him.

    But even so he doesn't want to finish with her because her loves her

    General CommentI think its about a relationship on the brink of breaking up - the "gimme stitches" part would be the mending of the relationship, and "now or never" would then mean that if the relationship wasn't fixed soon, it would be over, and never be fixed

    General Commentwhat about when he sayd dying to get my blood on you?? i was thinking that meant he believed she would end up feeling bad for what she's doing to him, like a guilt trip.

    General CommentThis song is about Marijuana. 'Dress me up in stiches' means taking a hit from a water bong.

    General CommentHere's what Dave said it was about...

    "'Gimme Stitches' is sort of a song about a relationship that's dysfunctional, and two people who can't get enough of hurting each other and making each other crazy."
