"Hemorrhage (In My Hands)" as written by and Carl William Bell....
Memories are just where you laid them
Drag the waters till the depths give up their dead
What did you expect to find
Was there something you left behind
Don't you remember
Anything I said when I said

Don't fall away
And leave me to myself
Don't fall away
And leave love bleeding in my hands
In my hands again
And leave love bleeding in my hands
In my hands
Love lies bleeding

Hold me now I feel contagious
Am I the only place that you've left to go
She cries her life is like
Some movie black and white
Dead actors faking lines
Over and over and over again she cries

Don't fall away
And leave me to myself
Don't fall away
And leave love bleeding in my hands
In my hands again
And leave love bleeding in my hands
In my hands
Love lies bleeding

And I want you
But you turned away
You don't remember
But I do
You never even tried

Don't fall away
And leave me to myself
Don't fall away
And leave love bleeding in my hands
In my hands again
Leave love bleeding in my hands
In my hands again
Leave love bleeding in my hands
In my hands again, oh

    General CommentOk... I think this song is about a guy getting dumped by a girl, then she comes crawling back, and hes like "oh no, i dont think so, not now, not after what I went through"

    Heres the breakdown... I believe this song is actually like a conversation

    First "memories are just where you laid them, Drag the waters till the depths give up their dead (basically just about memories) then "What did you expect to find, was it something you left behind? Dont you remember anything i said when i said..." see he is saying "dont come crawling back after i already told you not to "leave love bleeding in my hands!"

    then she cries about her life and feeling contagious and SHE then says or then she cries... "dont leave love bleeding in my hands again"

    Then he says ... "and i wanted (to stay together) but you turned away... you dont remember (or act like you dont) But IIII do HAHAHAHA ho "you never even tried" (this is your fault)

    General CommentHas anyone watched the video? It's about losing his girlfriend because she had a hemorrhage and died. It shows the funeral in the video.
    "You don't remember
    But I do"
    She doesn't remember because she is dead and she has left him with these memories of her death and he desperately wants her back.

    My InterpretationI've never seen the video... But just hearing the lyrics, to me it sounds like it's about an ex that broke his heart, maybe just used him, & keeps coming back. The chorus sounds like him begging her not to leave him, but then she does & later on comes back after she screwed him over, & he can't take the pain of her being around. "Memories are just where you laid them" - We had some great memories, & you effed it all up & just left them. I haven't picked up the pieces yet. "What'd you expect to find? Was there something you left behind?" - Why are you coming back when you made it clear you were done with me? Just my take on it. Great song either way :)

    General CommentDesperation can rarely be conveyed well in music. It's outstanding in this song though. You haven't experienced this song until you've seen the video. You'll see it a new way.

    General CommentI like this song better than the bad day song. This is a very dramatic and emotional song.Too bad the lead singer thinks hes the greatest thing to ever walk the Earth. what a prick.

    General Commentits real good shite
    movin tune tt seems to latch on to ur mind
    the combination of the lyrics and tune allows the listener to establish a a connection with the song by reachin in to the depths of his soul to create a deep sense of empathy
    in other words
    its good shite

    General CommentI agree with you smooth. This song is definetly defined by the video. This to me has one of the most touching, beautfiul videos i have ever seen. It just shows you how much you can love someone without even realiznig it until its 2 late.

    General CommentThis song is lyrically and musically really beautiful. To me, the song is really sad, but amazing. I think it's about trying to reach someone that is so far from you and you want them, but the pain won't ever go away.
