I said I'd never forget your face
Vaulted away inside my head
And memories never seem to fade
(Never seem to fade)
You were the best part of my life
(Best part of my life)
My last regret

Now I've walked this line
A thousand times before
(A thousand times before)
It hurts too much to bear
(Hurts too much to bear)
For you, I'd tear out my own heart
And write our names together

Your love is the barrel of a gun
So tell me, am I on the right end?
I could be nothing but a memory to you
Don't let this memory fade away

And in the end
We're turning on and off again
There's a look in your eye
And it's screaming goodbye
I'd hate to watch you cry
(Hate to watch you cry)

Your love is the barrel of a gun
So tell me, am I on the right end?
I could be nothing but a memory to you
Don't let this memory fade away

There's a look in your eye
And it's screaming goodbye
Now it tears me apart
Just to look at the sky
But I'd hate to watch you cry
I'd hate to watch you cry

Your love is the barrel of a gun
So tell me, am I on the right end?
I could be nothing but a memory to you
Don't let this memory fade away

    General Comment"Your love is the barrel of a gun
    So tell me am I on the right end" oddly similar to fall out boys "my pen is the barrel of a gun remind me what side you should be on"

    General Commentahahah i love the caps.
    i personally think it's zach doing the screaming,
    he strikes me as more of the type than jack.
    not sure though =i
    and yeah, atl can't be compared to fob.
    atl sounds WAY different.
    the lyrics may seem similar, but thats one time.

    General Commentit's kind of fucking annoying that people are like 'oh this is about my friend _________' 'alex is dating my friend _______' 'i talked to alex's girlfriend and she's _______' 'this is about ______, i know her'

    seriously. you know that person and the first thing that you do is go to the song that's "about" them and comment on it?

    i met alex at a music festival a few months ago. that must mean that (insert song here) is about me or the friend that was with me when i talked to him!

    fucking name droppers.

    General Commentheytwigg, i totally agree with you. people are commenting on all the songs saying it's about them or a friend, when most likely it's not. don't believe people just cause they say they're right. only alex TRULY knows what/who the songs are about.
