"37 Stitches" as written by and Ryan Mccombs Michael Luce....
Do you see me sitting here?
I'm waiting for you to say anything
Head hung low, kicking stones down
Kicking stones down the road to hell now
I'm waiting for you to say anything, anything, yeah

I know you are the only one
My little taste of heaven
You know I am the only one
Your bitter taste of hell

Your eyes scream the end is creeping in
I'll need thirty-seven stitches to keep the pain in
I know you are the only one
On the darkest side of the sun
On the darkest side of the sun, ooh yeah

Followed the piper's sweet whistling
Guided down the path by the wrong hand
Close my eyes for the chance of a better view
Close my ears so I couldn't hear you

And I know you are the one
And you know I am the one
Your bitter taste of hell

I know you are the only one
A little taste of heaven
And you know I am the only one
Your bitter taste of hell

Your eyes scream the end is creeping in
I'll need thirty-seven stitches, to keep the pain in
I know you are the only one
On the darkest side of the sun

Do you see me sitting here?
Still waiting for you to say anything
Head hung low kicking stones down
Kicking stones down the road to hell now
I'm waiting for you, I'm waiting for you, just say anything, yeah

I know you are the only one
A little taste of heaven
And you know I am the only one
Your bitter taste of hell

Your eyes scream the end is creeping in
I'll need thirty-seven stitches, thirty-seven stitches, yeah
I know you are the only one
On the darkest side of the sun

I know, I know, the darkest side of the sun
You are the one on the darkest side of the sun

    General CommentMy interpretation of 37 stitches is from the view of a an idividual, who can really say if it is man, woman or child, has disappointed another individual. But as it does seem, I would think it is a man in a relationship with a woman, and it very well could be the act of infidelity that has occurred. For whatever the situation is he knows he has wronged someone very important to him. Have you ever just walked along somberly and kind of drag and kick your feet? With your head hung?The main character is expecting to be in trouble. he is wanting her to say something, anything. he has hurt her and he KNOWS it and he knows the end is here and there is no need to fight. She was his taste of heaven and ultimately the wrong doing that was committed was her hell. I am thinking that the sweet whistle of the piper was the temptation involved, another woman perhaps is the wrong hand that was guiding? His head is hung low in shame. Because there is no proof of a "dark side of the sun" , he realizes that she is the one and he has blown it. forever. He has lost someone and it is what it is...OVER.

    General CommentThis song is about how the guy feels that he has the best girl..she is just his "little taste of heaven" and he feels incredibly lucky. But for her, he feels he is just a loser almost. "the bitter taste of hell". and he is waiting for her to eventually see this too and for her to leave him. "im waiting for you to say anything"
    NIce song by the way!

    General CommentI'm not sure what significance the number 37 has in this song or if it was just a randomly picked number, but I think this song is about a relationship in which he thinks the girl is his own slice of heaven but he's just hell for her, and he knows she's one of a kind (only one on the darkest side of the sun). Maybe 37 is how many stitches it takes in a heart surgery, and it's a reference to having a broken heart, but I'm not sure.

    General CommentI know that when Ryan, the lead singer, was in SOiL, he did a lot of songs about love. This has a similar meaning to a lot of their songs. I agree on mayfield about the song's meaning. I also have no clue about the 37 stitches thing.

    General CommentI think I know where they got the title "37 Stitches" from. This may sound weird when you look at the band, but I was flipping through the channels today and saw the movie Beethoven on (yeah, that movie about the dog). Whenever the dad is at the Vet's office talking to him, the Vet says it took 37 stitches to fix his arm wound. As soon as I heard the phrase "37 stitches" my ears perked up and I had to come here just to mention that lol

    General CommentI think the lyrics posted may be off by a few words.
    "Your eyes scream the end is creeping end"
    I believe he says "Your eyes scream the end is creeping in on me"
    and the other one is...
    "Plug my ears so i couldn't hear you," while this line makes more sense.
    I believe he actually says "Close my ears so I couldn't hear you."
    Either way... This song is great. Just saw Drowning Pool on the Cruefest 2 tour.
    Their show was awesome from beginning to end.

    My InterpretationSome old school typical Drowning Pool high energy music. But then you got some more mainstream Alice In Chains acoustic rock <3
