Bled dry,a bullet never lies
Look into my eyes girl, would i lie to you?
Stained grave, do you feel the same way?
Tears run down my spine girl, would i lie to you?

Start the engine to my car
I feel that romance will take the back seat tonight
Part the seal to my heart
I feel that my chance is under the moonlight

Watch the world (it's a disaster)
Let it bleed (forever after)
As i lay you took my breath away (you took my breath away)
Watch the world (it's a disaster)
Let it bleed (forever after)
As i lay you took my breath away

Sorrow, wait until tomorrow
Hold me close, never go
Know that i would lie to you

Insane, i still feel that sharp pain
Running down my spine, girl
Girl I'd die for you

Watch the world (it's a disaster)
Let it bleed (forever after)
As i lay you took my breath away
Watch the world (it's a disaster)
Let it bleed (forever after)
As i lay you took my breath away

Forever just won't be the same
Still i forgive you the pain
Take these broken wings fly from the heart you stole
Cutting your dress on the floor
Still i forgive you once more
Take these broken wings fly from the heart you stole

Watch the world, Let it bleed, As i lay you took my breath away

Watch the world
Let it bleed
As i lay you took my breath away
Watch the world (it's a disaster)
Let it bleed (forever after)
As i lay you took my breath away

    General CommentAha. Agreed.

    And "We Break Dance, Not Hearts" does own ALL TITLES.

    My favourite line of this is "Take these broken wings fly from the heart you stole" I don't know why, it's just beautiful!

    General Commenthmm i added these lyrics months ago, along with thick as thieves. The goddamn site wouldn't stick them on the page and now i can't add thick as thieves because "a song by this name already exists for this artist" even though now, the page is gone.
    lol. stupid ass website.
    not to mention the page i had for this song, we break dance, not hearts, is now gone too.

    /end complain

    i used to only like we break dance, not hearts compared to thick as thieves. but there are certain qualities about thick as thieves that i prefer over we break dance, not hearts.
    however, the title "we break dance, not hearts" totally owns "thick as thieves" as a title.

    as for the song meaning, i'm not one to post my meaning about songs. i like to read what other people think.
    i dunno.. i'm just odd. :)
    we need more short stack fans on this website though.... even if it is dodgy to me :(

    General Commenti like short stack in general..
    but their lyrics..
    dont really have specific meanings all the time?
    and if they do they're difficult to decode.

    i love this song, its very catchy.
    by the sounds of it

    "Bled dry,a bullet never lies
    Look into my eyes girl, would i lie to you?
    Stained grave, do you feel the same way?
    Tears run down my spine girl, would i lie to you?"

    and

    "Watch the world (it's a disaster)
    Let it bleed (forever after)"

    give me the impression that maybe this song is about a girl who has died and the guy has had a difficult previous relationship or if she hasn't physcially died their relationship has and he's really messed up.

    but thats how I see it.

    My Opinioni think that this song is like about how the relationship shaun (or someone else) was in totally didnt work and then the guy (who may or may not be shaun) got depressed and was feeling really blue cause he liked the girl. like REALLY liked the girl, and then i think he went a tad insane and started thinking about death and stuff..
    well thats what i think..

    My InterpretationI agree with MissBron we need SO many more fans on this website, I also love reading others' interpretations of songs. I mean some songs have a clear meaning, and some artists talk about why they wrote a song, but most songs are so open to interpretation and can take so many different meanings to everyone.

    Short stack lyrics are brilliant: they don't "make sense" literally - which is why they DO make sense on a much deeper level- and the heavy use of metaphors and everything just adds to the intensity of the lyrics.
    Personally I think this song is about a guy who is severely heart broken.
    "as i lay you took my breath away" - this could mean "you were so beautiful you took my breath away" but I'm interpreting it as "You left me and I stopped breathing".


    "Forever just won't be the same
    Still i forgive you the pain
    Take these broken wings fly from the heart you stole
    Cutting your dress on the floor
    Still i forgive you once more
    Take these broken wings fly from the heart you stole"


    I love that entire verse there. I think it is beautiful! He loves her so much that he forgives her more than once. It's almost as if he loves her so much that he is willing to let her go ("...fly from the heart you stole") knowing that he will suffer, and if she ever does come back, he will forgive her and still be willing to let her go again if she needs it.

    Anyway, it is extremely likely that the song writers would look at my comment and think Wow this song has been misunderstood completely lol, but when I listen to it, that's what I make of it. Whatever it is though, it is beautiful!
