I’d burn alive to keep you warm,
When you’re alone.
Shiver under blankets in the basement,
Where our secrets sleep.
You pour the liquor on the staircase, girl.
Pass the flask and close your eyes.

Are you grieving for,
Are you grieving for what we’ve become?
Are you running from,
Are you running from that room?

We set the evidence on fire.
We light cigarettes and chase out old regrets.
Are you grieving for,
Are you grieving for,
What are you grieving for tonight?
I smell the sulfur on her skin.
Breathe in.

I'd burn alive to keep you warm.

Yesterday will be the end of you and I.
You and I.

Yesterday will be the end.
Yesterday will be the end of shoulders where,
Yesterday will be the end of shoulders where, we rest our head.

Now we grieve for tomorrow goes on without us.
Now we breathe for no one else.
We breathe for no one.
We breathe for no one.

Everything is broken slowly sinking under waiting for tomorrow
Waiting for the grave.
Everything is broken slowly sinking under waiting for tomorrow
Waiting for the grave.
Everything is broken slowly sinking under waiting for tomorrow
Waiting for the grave to tell me she is lonely.
Open up and hold me slowly feel my body become one and only.
Death is just an excuse to forget you.

Now we run from ourselves.
Hope lies not in the mirror.
Now we run from ourselves.
Hope lies not in the mirror.

I’d burn alive for you.
I’d burn alive for you.
I’d burn alive for you.
I’d burn.

I’d burn alive for you.
I’d burn alive for you.
I’d burn alive for you.
I’d burn alive.

    Damn, dont I know it!

    This is their best song, I think.
    The singer guy's voice is wicked powerful when he screams, but its almost a shame he doesnt really SING as much as he screams, you know?

    General CommentTrue man, but it wouldn't work for them. I wouldn't really change a thing about em. But does anyone actually have any input as to the meaning of this song?

    General Commenti think is just a love song, but his heart is broken too. he is still in love w/ her but his love is unrequited.
