I'm on fire
And the day is feeling hopeless
You'd see me burning but the burning's turning smokeless
Soon I won't feel at all
No

It's electric
The neon heard inside your phone call
The layered sadness and the madness it revolves
Bringing down the walls where you found her
No

Well, I'm willing to break myself
To shake this hell from everything I touch
I'm willing to bleed for days more reds and grays
So you don't hurt so much

And now I'm static
As your sky is turning purple and gray
I'm learning that the further that I crawl
The farther that I fall, is that ok?
No

And you're in pieces
As your world becomes a rainstorm
You've got no shelter I'm a thousand miles away
If you survive the day
You say you're leaving

You say you're leaving

Well, I'm willing to break myself
To shake this hell from everything I touch
I'm willing to bleed for days more reds and grays
So you don't hurt so much

So you don't hurt so much

Never again will we fire this gun
No never again you're the only one
No never again but you're already gone.

I'm willing to break myself
I'm not afraid
I'm willing to break myself
I'm not afraid
I'm willing to break myself
I'm not afraid

Well, I'm willing to break myself
To shake this hell from everything I touch
I'm willing to bleed for days more reds and grays
So you don't hurt so much

So much
So much
So much
So much

    He's willing to go to any lengths to make sure the other person isn't in pain. This song is really beautiful.

    General Commenti'm going to start out by saying i heart this song. especially this part:
    "never again will i fire this gun
    no never again you're the only one
    no never again but you're already gone"

    wow, beautiful

    General Commentthis is such a beautiful song! i'm sort've repeating what others have said...but to me, this song is of a guy who is totally in love with some girl and will go to the end of the earth, just to have her and keep her happy. it has emotion without the sappy stuff. it's great!

    General CommentAndrew told me that he wrote it while he and Kelly were at a "weak point" from him being gone on tour.. hence.."You've got no shelter I'm a thousand miles away"

    General CommentThis song is one of my favorites and it basically is about being in a place where you are unable to help anyone. So what would you do when you're so far away from someone who needs you, and you wanna be there but you can't?
    This song is beautiful.

    General Commenti'm agreeing with comalies, it's about the willingness to do anything to relieve someone of their pain & hurt, but being in a situation where they can't do anything... or, anything they do is futile

    General Commenti LOVE this song to death... i can relate to it so well, and yeah. it's amazing.

    correction though, it's "bringing down the walls where you found love" not "found her"

    General CommentThis song is sooo good and so catchy! It will be stuck in my head for the rest of the day now but anyways, best part: I'm on fire
    And the day is feeling hopeless
    You'd see me burning but the burning's turning smokeless
    Soon I won't feel at all

    Best fuckin part. SC ownes!

    General CommentSweet sweet song

    "To shake this hell from everything I touch"

    Heh, and who has never felt like that before.

    I definitely think this song is about loving someone who is self destructive, when you yourself are the same way-and nothing can cure either of you.
