"Thick As Thieves" as written by and Christopher Andrew Carrabba....
Would it kill you to breathe
Easy only 17 miles lay between you and me
I could make it if I had to
I don't break easily
You've got my counsel, thick as thieves
If there's a crime we'll keep it secret
For there's only trace amounts left in your blood
You may be a sinner
But you may be justified

Just keep your mouth shut
Keep your guard up
I swear I'll make it right

Will it kill me to breathe
Not as easy as you think it is between you and me
I could fake it if I have to
I don't break easily
I need your counsel, thick as thieves
I have no crime to keep a secret
It was hers, it was not mine
Well I may be a sinner
But it wasn't me this time

Just keep your mouth shut
Keep your guard up
I swear I'll make it right

Listen to yourself
There is a hemorrhage in your mouth
It won't stop bleeding
Well you may be the traitor
I will hold the smoking gun
You'll get away clean
I'll keep your secrets til the grave has swallowed me
And I will never tell a tortured soul they are burning by my side
That I am a sinner
I am a savior
I am a lie

So keep your mouth shut
Keep your guard up
I swear I'll make it right

    General Commentthose lyrics are definitely not right...

    Would it kill you to breathe
    Is it only 17 miles right between you and me
    I could make it if I had to
    I don't break easily
    Got my counsel, thick as thieves
    If there's a crime we'll keep it secret
    But there's only trace amounts left in your blood
    You may be a sinner
    But you may be justified

    Just keep your mouth shut
    Keep your guard up
    I swear I'll make it right

    Will it kill me to breathe?
    Not as easy as you think it is between you and me
    I could fake it if I have to
    I don't break easily
    Got my counsel, thick as thieves
    I have no crown to keep a secret
    It was hers, it was not mine
    Well I may be a sinner
    But it wasn't me this time

    Just keep your mouth shut
    Keep your guard up
    I swear I'll make it right

    Listen to yourself
    You have a hemorrhage in your mouth
    It won't stop bleeding
    You may be the traitor
    But I will hold the smoking gun
    We'll get away clean
    I'll keep your secrets til the grave has swallowed me
    And I will never tell a tortured soul that's burning my side
    That I am a sinner
    I am a savior
    I am a lie

    So keep your mouth shut
    Keep your guard up
    I swear I'll make it right

    General CommentI'm SOOOOO happy that Chris is returning to his acoustic roots. This song reminds me of the Swiss Army Romance days.

    General CommentSTILL NOT THE RIGHT LYRICS, HERE ARE THE CORRECT ONES:

    would it kill you to breathe easy?
    only 17 miles lay between you and me
    i could make it if i had to
    i don't break easily
    you got my council, thick as thieves
    if there's a crime, we'll keep it secret
    for there's only trace amounts left in your blood
    you may be a sinner
    but you may be justified

    just keep your mouth shut
    keep your guard up
    i swear i'll make it right

    will it kill me to breathe?
    not as easy as you think it is
    between you and me,
    i could fake it if i have to
    i don't break easily
    i need your council, thick as thieves
    i have no crime to keep a secret
    it was hers, it was not mine
    well i may be a sinner,
    but it wasn't me this time

    just keep your mouth shut
    keep your guard up
    i swear i'll make it right

    well, listen to yourself
    there is a hemmorage in your mouth
    it won't stop bleeding
    well, you may be the trigger
    i will hold the smoking gun
    you'll get away clean
    i'll keep your secrets 'til the grave has swallowed me
    and i will never tell a tortured soul there burning by my side
    that i am a sinner
    i am a savior
    i am a lie

    so keep your mouth shut
    keep your guard up
    i swear i'll make it right

    General CommentChillllllll.
    I put up these lyrics from what I heard from a LIVE version of this song. I'll correct them right now, damn.

    As for meaning, anyone care to share?

    General CommentThe reason why these lyrics seem wrong is because the lyrics are different from the one he sang live (which is on youtube) and the one that was recorded in a studio.
