I used to think that you were pure
But now I see that you're just empty
Oh, lie to me, it's the new poetry
It's the language that we speak
I've become numb
I've become numb

You know I love you, but you might be the death of me
Hold me down, suffocating, please let me breathe
Kiss kiss, lights out, I've got to, we've got to,
You know I loved you but you're gonna be the death of me

I've got to tear away from you
I left you bruised, you left me broken
Oh, don't try to speak, if you do one thing for me
Make yourself numb
Just make yourself numb

You know I love you, but you might be the death of me
Hold me down, suffocating, please let me breathe
Kiss kiss, lights out, I've got to, we've got to,
You know I loved you but you're gonna be the death of me

You know I love you, but you might be the death of me
Hold me down, suffocating, please let me breathe
Kiss kiss, lights out, I've got to, we've got to,
You know I loved you but you're gonna
You know I love you, you might be me the death of me
Might be the death of me
Might be the death of meI used to think that you were pure

    General Commenti love this song and if you have any taste in music you will buy their album.

    As for the meaning, i think he's basically saying that he wants to love someone but he's afraid if he gets too close that he'll get smothered with love.

    "You know I love you, but you might be the death of me
    Hold me down, suffocating, please let me breathe "

    but anywyay this song is really good.
