"As His Black Heart Dies" as written by and Lovato....
His actions speak nothing
But lies, intoxicated eyes
And lonely hearts
Are held accounted for

Disease eats inside
Nothing left to hide
The sun starts to rise
As his black heart dies
As his black heart dies

You're my mistake
And I know it's wrong
Don't let the truth be told
Scared of what you don't know
These secrets, keeping us alive

Break my chest in two
(Break my chest in two)
A shallow heart for you

Half a heart is all you see
Bleeding off dependency
Got nothing left to hide
As his black heart dies
As his black heart dies

You're my mistake
(As his black heart dies)
And I know it's wrong
(As his black heart dies)

Don't let the truth be told
Scared of what you don't know
(As his black heart dies)
These secrets keeping us alive

I leave my heart to take
With blood shot eyes
Your heart will break

As this night fades again
(As this night fades again)
So broken down I've lost again
I'm lost again

You're my mistake
(As his black heart dies)
And I know it's wrong
(As his black heart dies)

Don't let the truth be told
Scared of what you don't know
(As his black heart dies)
These secrets keeping us alive

You're my mistake
(As his black heart dies)
And I know it's wrong
(As his black heart dies)

Don't let the truth be told
Scared of what you don't know
(As his black heart dies)
These secrets keeping us alive

    General Comment- This part could be about someone who's been put through a lot for most of his life. He's gotten to the point where he doesn't care anymore because no matter how hard he tried to please or show his love for those around him or his girlfriend - he was let down or his actions were tossed aside. There's only so many tears you can cry before it drains the light from your eyes and there is only so much pain a soul can take before it starts to die inside. Soul=heart.
    -"Disease eats inside, nothing left to hide" could be about the pain that is eating away at him, slowly killing him. The part about nothing left to hide could be that he's intentionally cut himself on the outside to show his pain on the inside.

    "You're my mistake
    And I know it's wrong
    Don't let the truth be told
    Scared of what you don't know
    These secrets keeping us alive."

    -He's admitting that he was wrong for ever trusting or caring about his girlfriend or anyone in general. There are secrets untold, everyone knows but doesn't do a thing about it.

    "Break my chest in two
    A shallow heart for you
    Half a heart is all you see
    Bleeding off dependency
    Got nothing left to hide
    As his black heart dies"

    -Basically I think that he's saying look at what you've done to me you've sucked the love right out of me. And as he's pouring his soul out to them his heart can finally have some comfort even though it's scarred.

    "I leave my heart to take
    With blood shot eyes
    Your heart will break
    As this night fades again
    So broken down I've lost again
    I'm lost again"

    -And just when he thinks things could be getting better he might either be let down again, so his will to care has faded/he's giving up completely.


    That's just my interpretation of it. I'm no expert. A song can mean a million things to billions of people.

    General CommentIm thinking a contrary to a loss of innocense, His actions speak nothing but lies
    Intoxicated eyes
    And lonely hearts
    Are held accounted for
    Disease eats inside

    Sounds as if someone is doing something wrond then...

    The sun starts to rise.. (things get better)

    As his black heart dies... his "black heart" could represent the evil inside him which has now "died" he has relized how downhill he is going and relizes he must change

    General Comment*correction.. Lol - I didn't add the first verse at the top so this is how it goes.
