I loved her
He whispered
He had to tame her
Then forgave her

Did you know her?
He whispered
Did they embrace her? Oh . . .
Have I condemned her

Oh, God
Oh, God
Oh, God
Oh, God
Oh, God
Oh, God

She won't be there with a rat whore

I lost her
He christened
We obtained her
But I erase her

I'll pay for her wayward eyes
I'll pay for her wayward eyes

Oh, God

She won't be there with a rat whore
(Oh, God)
She won't be there with a rat whore

    General CommentI hope it's not just my dirty mind, but when they're saying "Oh god" with the really heavy breathing it sounds sort of... orgasm-y.

    General CommentI definitely think it has something to do with a baby, maybe an abortion, premature birth, death soon after birth. "She won't be there with a rattle" would be the baby with her rattle, the one that never gets to grow up.

    Christened makes me think that they named it before whatever happened.

    Perhaps they broke up after the pregnancy ("forgave her" didn't turn out so well) and he thinks that after all of that, naming the baby and everything, that his girlfriend will have an abortion because she doesn't want the baby alone. So he's blaming himself "But I erased her" for the fact that his girlfriend might get an abortion because of the breakup.

    So "her wayward eyes" would be the girlfriend perhaps looking for other men before they broke up (what he tried to forgive her for) and the reason why they broke up.

    And all he can think of is the baby that might be aborted because of all this.

    The second build up of "oh god"s gives me goosebumps, it's why I love this song so much. What I'm saying could be complete bull but "she won't be there with a rattle" just brings me back to a baby with a rattle and I ran from there.

    General CommentShit.I wrote the longest meaning to this song.
    Okay here i go again i had never thought much about the meaning of this song but if we are going with the rape theory (& also going with along that the lyrics above are correct)then i'll give it a shot.
    The scenario is a guy is obsessed with this girl and gets the chance to confront her down in a dark alley,just like they portray it in the movies."I loved her,he whispered" this is him proclaiming his love to her and he had to whisper simply so no one would be able to hear them."He had to tame her,then forgave her" simply put,she was squiming around because hello,here is this creeper guy about to rape her so of course she was antsy and would not stop moving, but the creeper accepteed the fact that this was going on(her squirming) ,he forgave her for not wanting it badly like him.He then questions if she was accepted by everyone "Did they embrace her" and then has like an epiphany and he is like "Oh,Have I condemned her"it makes me envsion like a goody two shoes,like a church girl, who was a virgin and he is like have i condemmedn her by having sex with her? (since you know abstinence is the key)is that why she is being rejected and not embraced? and then ironically enough he is like "Oh God" over and over again,like omgsh i have ruined the love of my life's,life! kind of like oh god help me! (haha)"She won't be there with a rattle" i think means innocence is gone,she is no longer a virgin. "I lost her" literally,the creeper guy confused the girl she is lost because of what hapened,scarred. Then he is like "We obtained her" it's like we (dare i say it? it's like his dick & himself are two different people ,like "we" , get it? hahah)it's like i got what i wanted but her whole identity is erased,gone. I have no clue what the phrase "I'll pay for her wayward eyes" means but by the sounds of it,it sounds like he is saying ,you can blame me when she is looking up to the sky (God) and questioning why god would allow such morbid encounter with the creeper guy,it's like ,i'll pay for her hatred towards hatred.
    Is that good enough? i have no clue im el bored-o amigosit is 12:11 am ahah and i am exhasuted.

    General CommentThe lyrics probably aren't perfect, but I figured I'd take a stab at it. :)

    General Commenti think "okay for rolling the night" is "i'll pay for her wayward eyes",
    i love this song, joint first on the album with "lets make out", not a fan of dioy,y's pop-like tunes, like dawn of the dead... they should all be like this :)

    General Commentthe way the lyrics sound, i figured maybe somebody was in a tragic accident, like suicide. like, a guy was talked to a girl about the benefits of it and maybe she went out and decided to kill herself.

    i dunno. if so, then the line "have i convinced her?" would make sense.

    plus the song sounds all frantic-y, like an emergency or something. and they're saying "i lost her", and "she's gone" sort of stuff.

    and the line "Did you know her? He whispered" is like people talking at a funeral.

    and maybe the line "I'll pay for her wayward eyes" is the guy thinking that he's gonna get blamed for her bad decision.


    plus, this described situation would fit the title of the song, "With A Heavy Heart (I Regret To Inform You)".


    i dunno, maybe she jumped off a building?

    General Commentit also sounds like he's saying "he kissed her" instead of "he christened".

    General CommentOh, and it sounds to me like he sings "Have I condemned her?" and not convinced.
    "She won't be there with a rebel"?
