"Nights of Love" as written by and Jerry Horton Tobin Esperance....
The wicked cane
That you play so good
I'm falling high
Just like you knew I would

This wont last
It's to good
I can't stop but I know I should

[Chorus]
Days of the war and the nights of love
Head is on fire and I'm on the run
Dancing with the devil in the midnight sun
I'm falling in love
I'm coming undone
I'm coming undone(I'm coming undone)

Out of my head
In a memory of you
I'll never forget
What you put me through

It wasn't right of what you did
But I was just as wrong as you

[Chorus]

Days of the war and the nights of love
Head is on fire and I'm on the run
Dancing with the devil in the midnight sun
I'm out of my head
I'm coming undone

[Bridge]
I'm on the outside lookin in
I turned my back on myself again
I'm on the ledge I'm falling out

Somebody better come and tuck me down
I said I'm never do it again
But then I'm keep on givin it in
I gotta turn my world around
Because it keeps on knocking me down

Knockin me down
It felt wrong
It felt good

This wont last
I wish you would
It wasn't right what you did
But I was just as wrong as you

[Chorus]

Days of the war and the nights of love
Head is on fire and I'm on the run
Dancing with the devil in the midnight sun
I'm out of my head
I'm coming undone

I'm on the outside looking in
I turned my back on myself again
I'm on the ledge I'm falling out
Somebody better come and tuck me down

I swear I never do it again
But than I keep on giving in
I gotta turn my world around
Because it keeps on knocking me down

Knocking me down
Knocking me down
Knocking me down
Yeah

    General Commentgreat song =]
    not the best off the record but still pretty effing amazing.
    this song is pretty much about drugs it seems like.
    you could interpret it as a relationship gone wrong, but it seems like he's addicted to the drugs and can't stop the vicious circle.
    "i swear i'll never do it again, but then i keep on giving up, i gotta turn my world around because it keeps on knocking me down"
    yeah.

    General Commenti agree..i think it could be interpreted either way as a bad relationship but i think its about being addicted to something drugs, alcohol ect. i love this song. the whole album is amazing but i can really relate to this song because im trying to quit an addiction and its soo hard but i can really relate especialy at the part where he says i said id nevr do it again but i keep on giving in..just my opinion though

    General Commenti think this song is about falling back in love with someone, someone who hurt you so bad in the past, someone you cant help BUT to fall back in love with them no matter how shitty of a person they are or how bad they fucked you up.

    i can def relate to this song. my ex cheated on me a thousand times, i forgave her, she cheated a thousand more times and i forgave her again, and actually asked her to marry me. we broke up eventually. im still bitter. when she says hello to me i get weak. all my problems still goes away with that simple hello,and at the same time she knows how much of an effect she has on me, and i know how capable she is of hurting me. i am dumb but love makes you do crazy things. sorry to rant.

    Song MeaningThe wicked game that you play so good [mind games]
    I'm falling hard just like you know I would [mind games to intentionally fuck up this person]
    This won't last, It's too good [unrequited love, narrator wants this more than anything, & the person knows it, hence the mind games.]
    I can't stop, but I know I should [he can't get over her]

    Days of War and the Nights of Love [they fight all the time, during the day, but make up & remember why they're together at night]
    Heavens on fire when I'm on the run [he's running away from his problems, his heaven is on fire meaning his relationship is out of control]
    Dancing with the devil In the midnight sun [he knows he's just setting himself up for hurt, but he can't help it]
    I'm falling in love, I'm coming undone [because he's in love & it's ripping him apart]

    I'm coming undone [falling apart]

    I'm out of my head, in a memory of you [this woman has become his life. he never stops thinking about her & it's ruining him.]
    I'll never forget what you put me through
    It wasn't right, what you did
    But I was just as wrong as you [he hurt himself as much as she did by allowing her to]

    Days of War and the Nights of Love [they fight all the time, during the day, but make up & remember why they're together at night]
    Heavens on fire when I'm on the run [he's running away from his problems, his heaven is on fire meaning his relationship is out of control]
    Dancing with the devil In the midnight sun [he knows he's just setting himself up for hurt, but he can't help it]
    I'm falling in love, I'm coming undone [because he's in love & it's ripping him apart]

    Days of War and the Nights of Love [they fight all the time, during the day, but make up & remember why they're together at night]
    Heavens on fire when I'm on the run [he's running away from his problems, his heaven is on fire meaning his relationship is out of control]
    Dancing with the devil In the midnight sun [he knows he's just setting himself up for hurt, but he can't help it]
    I'm falling in love, I'm coming undone [because he's in love & it's ripping him apart]

    I'm on the outside looking in, I turn my back on myself again [he can see exactly what's happening, but he keeps being with her]
    I'm gonna make sure I'm coming out, somebody better come and tie me down [he's considering ending it, but he doesn't' want to]
    I said I'll never do it again, but then I keep on giving up [he vows to end it, but he can't do it, he loves her too much]
    I've gotta turn my world around because it keeps on knocking me down [he can't get over her, but he needs to]

    I'm knocking me down [the pain of unrequited love]
    I fell hard, It felt good [masochistic, this pain is now a part of his daily life & he almost depends on it like an addiction]
    This won't last, I wish it would [a period of happiness, but he knows she'll just knock him down again]
    It wasn't right, what you did
    But I was just as wrong as you

    Days of War and the Nights of Love [they fight all the time, during the day, but make up & remember why they're together at night]

    I'm falling in love, I'm coming undone [because he's in love & it's ripping him apart]

    Knocking me down
    Knocking me down
    Knocking me down





    that's just my take.
    i don't think this song is about drugs AT ALL.
    it's classic Papa Roach. unrequited love. the pains of love.
    it's why we all love Papa Roach & turn to them when our worlds come crashing down.
