she's got this journal filled
with all her black ink guilt
and love is the only thing keeping her alive
she's got her mind made up
that all she needs is love
her heart is the only thing helping her decide
to breathe again, to breathe again

and when she's tired she doesn't sleep
a week since I've seen her eat
She's skin and bones, she's beautiful
no matter what
I wish I could help her see
she means the world to me
But the world, it doesn't mean much to her

I'll be there to split your lips
like when the ice berg hits
and the ship has to break apart
show its teeth and smile

she's got this journal filled
with all her black ink guilt
and love is the only thing keeping her alive
she's got her mind made up
that all she needs is love
and she'll breathe again
and she'll breathe again
and she'll breathe again
she'll breathe again, again

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite songs. i think its about a girl that was dumped and shes kindof depressed. shes so sad she cant eat or sleep. but she knows she'll fall in love again.

    "shes got her mind made up that all she needs is love" my favorite line :)

    General CommentI think its about a dude beating an anorexic chick
    "I'll be there to split your lips" and "a week since I've seen her eat
    She's skin and bones"

    General Comment"This song was written about a good friend of mine who was going through some problems. She had a lot of secrets and a lot more was always hurting her than she would let on. It's the kind of situation where everyone can see it but no one really has the courage to say anything. And she had this logic that was kind of like if you have love than nothing else matters. None of the other problems are really problems. And I thought that was a pretty interesting outlook on life and I wrote this song because of that and sort of as my way to talk to her also."

    General Comment"I'll be there to split your lips" means to make her smile.

    I'll be there to split your lips
    like when the ice berg hits
    and the ship has to break apart
    show its teeth and smile

    General CommentOk I first I thought this song was about a friend that was thinking about suicide and just struggling with a lot things but Isn't talking and keeping it bottled up in "this journal filled with all her black ink guilt" and when peole love her she remembers thers a reason to live and not give up. but then I read what Jimmy put in his blog and I wasn't too off but it makes a lot more sense.
