This is the calm before the storm,
the three words through your bedroom door.
And everybody knows that,
It is the place to start.

Why say something safe,
When i can blow you away.
It's a game only liars play,
Stop swinging above your weight

So take off
All of your clothes.
There ain't no shame in taking names
but my heart isn't the home


This is the stab in the back,
That I have been waiting for,
You've had me running in circles,
Losing my head at all costs

And it isn't a secret,
If you can't keep it.
So i disguised in height,
will cut you down, down to size

So take off
All of your clothes.
There ain't no shame in taking names
But my heart isn't the home

Cowards are golden
I know their words
But bones we can fix
And lesson's we'll learn

Cowards are golden

You mean more

    General CommentI think this is the correct lyrics.


    This is the calm before the storm,
    Pretty words through your bedroom door.
    And everybody knows that,
    It is a place to store.

    Why say something safe,
    When i can blow you away.
    It's a game only lights play,
    Some swing the perfume away.

    So take off
    All of your clothes.
    Through the shame of taking names,
    My heart is in the home.

    So take off
    All of your clothes.
    Through the shame of taking names,
    My heart is in the home.

    This is a stab in the back,
    That I have been waiting for,
    You've had me running in circles,
    Listen to more of the cause.

    And it isn't a secret,
    If you can't keep it.
    So i disguise the night,
    Cut you down, down to size.

    So take off
    All of your clothes.
    Through the shame of taking names,
    My heart is in the home.

    So take off
    All of your clothes.
    Through the shame of taking names,
    My heart is in the home.

    Cowards are golden,
    And i know the water.
    Bones we can fix,
    The lessons we'll learn.

    Cowards are golden,
    And i know the water.
    Bones we can fix,
    The lessons we'll learn.

    Cowards are golden,
    Cowards are golden,
    Cowards are golden,
    Cowards are golden,

    Cowards are golden,
    And i know the water.
    Bones we can fix,
    The lessons we'll learn.

    Cowards are golden,
    And i know the water.
    Bones we can fix,
    The lessons we'll learn.

    You mean more.
    You mean more.
    You mean more.
    You mean more

    This is a stab in the back,
    That I have been waiting for,
    You've had me running in circles,

    - I think it may mean that he cared for her... but she had him do so much to prove himself it wasn't worth it anymore and decided to "stab" her in the back.

    And it isn't a secret,
    If you can't keep it.
    So i disguise the night,
    Cut you down, down to size.
    -To me this means he lies to her, tells her what he thinks she wants to hear. Lift her up to cut her back down to size, get with her, then leave.

    So take off
    All of your clothes.
    Through the shame of taking names,
    My heart is in the home.
    -dead give away here. He may feel like he likes her... but he is just going to use her.

    General CommentI think what they are trying to get across in this song is the mis-use of the word love.
    people say it all the time and really have absolutely no idea what it means... at all.

    apply it to the lyrics and it makes 200x more sense than it did before.
    look at it this way.:
    "i love you."
    the three words through your bedroom door

    why say something safe,
    when i can blow your mind away?
    its a game only liars play.
    (as in people dont know what it really means but they say it anyways.)

    General CommentI think this song is about having an affair.
    "my heart is in the home" he loves his wife/girlfriend not the other girl.

    "This is a stab in the back,
    That I have been waiting for,
    You've had me running in circles,
    Listen to more of the cause."
    She has been threatening to tell for a long time. She has been making him do things so she wouldn't tell but he knew it would happen.

    "And it isn't a secret,
    If you can't keep it.
    So i disguise the night,
    Cut you down, down to size."
    He is trying to convince the other girl not to tell anyone about what they are doing. He is going to go by her and 'cut her down to size' probably by telling her it's her fault too.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's

    "Cowards are golden,
    And I know the words hurt.
    Bones we can fix,
    The lessons we'll learn."


    I mean I listened to it like 137573782 times and I'm seriously almost positive that's what it is :P It makes more sense, too.
