In this place we lie cutting slightly in vain
Hoping and praying you'll remember my name
If only tonight and only tonight
You'll write back here, I swear I'm done

Take your advice, 'cause it's easy to see
This so-called romance never wanted me
If only tonight and only tonight
You'll write back here, I swear I'll cut
'Till crimson falls
Over the bedroom walls

So will you lay me down tonight?
And we'll be better off today

2, 3, 4

Between you and I it's the two-step I crave
Morbidly swaying to a dying refrain
If only tonight and maybe tonight
You'll write back here
(I'm so sincere)

So will you lay me down tonight?
And we'll be better off today
And I would die if you never got to know
But would it do more harm this way?

And we'll go

So will you lay me down tonight?
And we'll be better off today
And I would die if you never got to know
But would it do more harm this way?

    General CommentI think it's about a girl who breaks up with him
    And he still loves her
    and he's reaaalllyy upset

    or it could be about him getting rejected
    both are really sad :(


    my favourite line is
    "And I would die if you never got to know
    But would it do more harm this way?"

    General CommentI agree, I think it's about a girl breaking up with him, even though he loves her.
    It's affected him badly, It's a bit sad...

    If only tonight and only tonight
    You'll write back here, I swear I'll cut
    'Till crimson falls
    Over the bedroom walls

    --Cutting himself, blood on the bedroom walls.

    General CommentI thought that this was about having a one night stand with a girl, but he wanted more.
    Something like that. (:

    One of my favourite songs.

    Ohh myyy goddddd. :O
