"Bend Your Arms To Look Like Wings" as written by Gareth Davies, Matthew Davies, Ryan Richards, Kris Roberts and Darran Anthony Smith....
As the sun sets on battlefields
I hope you can save me
I hope you can save our wounded hearts

Distance makes my heart grow colder
Distance makes my heart grow older
Just enough to cut the air from your lungs

As the sun sets (we push and pull apart)
On battlefields (enough for this to end)
I hope you can save me (from ourselves)
I hope you can save us from ourselves

Denial in the arms of our saviours
And my heart is torn to pieces
Just enough to cut the air from your lungs

And paper cuts and bloody hands
In the middle they would meet

    General CommentI think the lyrics is as follow:

    As the sun sets
    On battlefields
    I hope you can save me
    I hope you can save our wounded hearts

    And distance (creation)
    Makes my heart (eternity)
    Go colder (enough for this to end)
    And distance (creation)
    Makes my heart (eternity)
    Seem older (for you)
    It's just enough to cut the air
    From your lungs (from your lungs)

    As the sun sets (we push and pull apart)
    On battlefields (enough for this to end)
    I hope you can save me (from our selves)
    I hope you can save us from ourselves

    Denial (forever)
    In the arms of (we're stuck in here)
    Of our saviours (enough for this to end)
    And my heart (fills up with)
    Is torn (into)
    Into pieces (for you)
    Its just enough to cut the air
    From your lungs (from your lungs)

    As the sun sets (we push and pull apart)
    On battlefields (enough for this to end)
    I hope you can save me (from our selves)
    I hope you can save us from ourselves

    With paper cuts
    And bloody hands
    In the middle, they would meet

    With paper cuts
    And bloody hands
    In the middle, they would meet

    (as the sun sets)
    (as the sun sets)
    (as the sun sets)

    I think this song is about a couple fighting, I love the part "With paper cuts, And bloody hands, In the middle, they would meet"

    General CommentWhoever said that the beginning and end riffs make em wanna tear up...I am the same. Especially the end one..its something about the way it sounds that makes you know something is gone forever.

    General CommentI love this song so much. It totally reminds me of that phrase; 'Love is a battlefield'. Which may be where some of the idea for the lyrics of this song came too. I think this is pretty self explanatory. I love the line 'Just enough to cut the air from your lungs'

    Brilliant!!
