"Bleed For Me" as written by Bob Marlette, Joseph Scott Sappington, Christopher Jon Dabaldo, Wayne A. Swinny, David A. Novotny and Paul Allen Crosby....
All I ever wanted was to be at your service
But now I'm alone cause you were here and you're gone
And all I ever wanted was to feel I had a purpose
But now that's all gone
But if you could give me

Just one love, just one life
Just once chance to believe in my..
Just one love, just one life

You bleed for me and I didn't get to notice you
Now I'm stuck out on a line
Bleed for me, I didn't get to be with you
Now you're stuck in my mind

All I ever wanted was to be what you needed
Cause something so strong, it could never be wrong
And all I can promise, is to say what I'm feeling
We've made it so long
But if you could give me

Just one love, just one life
Just once chance to believe in my..
Just one love, just one life

You bleed for me and I didn't get to notice you
Now I'm stuck out on a line
Bleed for me, I didn't get to be with you
Now you're stuck in my mind

Just one love in my life

You bleed for me and I didn't get to notice you
Now I'm stuck out on a line
Bleed for me, I didn't get to be with you
Now you're stuck in my mind

Just one love in my life
Just one love in my life

    General CommentI think this song is about a lost chance.

    "You bleed for me
    And I didn't get to notice you
    Now I'm stuck out of line
    Bleed for me
    I didn't get to be with you
    Now you're stuck in my mind"

    The guy didn't notice the girl until she was gone, and now she's stuck in his mind. He realizes that she's the one love in his life, and begs for a chance with her. "Oh won't you bleed for me?" is almost like asking "Oh won't you feel some pain for me?" (The interesting thing about blood is that it's what gives life.) But unfortunately, times have changed, and she doesn't feel the same. When he says he's "stuck out of line", he's reffering to his love. His love for her is out of line.

    This song is a bit confusing/vague, and I never really could grasp meaning from it, but when I finally did, it just clicked. Events that happened in my life helped me to draw meaning, and that meaning helped me to understand my life as well. I love songs that do that.

    General CommentI also think this song is about a lost chance or it could be about someone who was with someone and went through the motions of a relationship with them, while the other person gave there all in the relationship and when it all ended, they realized they were totally in love with the person and can't get them back.

    General CommentI agree with Akari55! The guy regrets that he didnt notice the girl in the beginning and now that she's gone, he realizes he just lost his chance. But "stuck out of line" doesnt sound right...I think I hear a "high" in there but I cant figure it out. And ya its "dare to be with you" not get to be with you. toodles

    Song MeaningI also think this is about a lost chance / missed opportunity that the singer regrets.

    He was either in love someone and couldn't see that she liked him too. Or, he wasn't in love but when he found out later that she liked him and realized that maybe she was the one, it was too late.

    Either way, the singer missed his chance and now this girl is stuck in his mind.

    "Now I'm stuck out of line" basically means that it would be out of line for him to try to do anything with this girl now. She's gone and he needs to move on but can't.

    General CommentThis song aint that bad.. One of my favorites of Saliva, especially since I'm not to fond of them.. Ever since Hero I've been extremely sick of Josie Scott and Chad Kroeger.. "And they say that a hero can save us." Yea right..

    General Commentare the lyrics completely right? smack me if im wrong, but isnt he saying "i didnt Dare to be with you"? as opposed to "get to be"? and also, "stuck out on the line"? well...whatever. to me this is about a guy who was totally infatuated with this girl, real heavy in love with her. but the girl wasnt really as into the relationship, so when she ended it, he was crushed. so i think what he's saying is why wont you bleed for me, i bled for you. metaphorically or literally. good song though.

    General CommentSomeone in Saliva must have had a harsh dumping by his girlfriend. That same idea is shown in other songs like "Always" and "Rest in Pieces."

    General Commenti really don't know what this means to me, but I feel exactly like what the lyrics say. I feel deeply for someone, but the feeling isn't mutual 'cause they like someone else i guess. so yeah i felt really crushed and that's it.
