"Black Heart Queen" as written by and Christopher Frank/barnard Carter....
Today my heart collapsed.
And the feeling in my stomachs like a knife in my back.
And it's too damn short for me to get a grip
And pull the fucker out before it sticks.

Today my lungs collapsed
And I'm choking on my blood which has all turned black
And everything I'm spitting out. I'm spitting out.
Just spells your name.

Why, oh why, would you use that one.
You know I never used it, cos it just ain't on.
Can you pull it out of me please
Cos it really fucking hurts and Its making me dizzy
No? Well fine, then ill tell you what.
I'm gonna tell you that I love you till my breathing stops.

Today my heart collapsed
Everything was fine and now I'm ready to relapse.
I can't understand how you made it through
I'm totally fucked cos I'm falling for you

Today my lungs collapsed
And I'm choking on my blood which has all turned black
And everything I'm spitting out
I'm spitting out.

Why would you use that one
You know I never used it cos it just ain't on.
Can you pull it outta me please
Cos it really fucking hurts and it's making me dizzy
No! well fine then I'll tell you what.
I'm gonna tell you that I love you till my breathing stops.

The black heart king
Has met his black heart queen
Forgot everything he was
For the taste of her skin
His nights no longer lonely
Once he let her in
And by the orchestra of wolves
You can hear him sing

    My OpinionSo this song has got to be about him trying not to fall in love with this girl but in the end he does anyway..

    In the first verse I think it's talking about him getting hit by cupids arrow and that he needs to pull it out before it sticks and he falls in love. But it's to short for him to grip it and take it out himself

    In the chorus he says why would you use that one? That he never uses it cause it's never on, maybe cayse its never been the right girl. He asks if she can please pull it out because he doesn't want to be in love. When she refused he gives in and loves her until his final breath.

    He says he can't believe she made it through to him, and that he is fucked cause he fel for her after all

    The last verse is my very favorite cause he realizes that he finally met his love and he isn't lonely any more.

    Thats just my opinion on the song.. I might be way off but I really love this song good job frank turner!!

    General CommentI got this song off of a Itunes free download, and I haven't had a clue what they were saying for the last few months, but this all really makes sense. This song is really crazy and fun. I just think it's about a guy who is really dark, and guarded, and then he finds his match in a girl much like himself. I think that he knows that love hurts, and he tries to get her to pull out of the relationship, but she won't, and then he realizes that he loves her a lot, and that it's okay.
    Just a little something.

    General CommentI don't actually think Frank is the "black heart king". That might be a friend of his, that the girl he was with cheated on him with.

    Explains the feeling like he's being stabbed in the back, by both the girl and his friend.

    "No? Well fine, then I'll tell you what, I'm gonna tell you that I love you 'til my breathing stops."
    The fact that the girl cheated on him really hurt him, but he still had feelings for her, and futhermore wanted to make her feel guilty about it.

    "The black heart king has met his black heart queen.
    Forgot everything he was for the taste of her skin."
    His friend, the black heart king in this case, forgot everything about his friendship with Frank, just so he could fuck his girl.

    My InterpretationHe is falling in love with a girl that really wants him and he really doesn't want to because Internally he doesn't think he should and it is borderline painful how torn he is, until he eventually accepts it
