"Toxic Valentine" as written by Jimmy Harry, Tony Kanal and Alex Gaskarth....
She's got a target painted on her back
And keeps a list of the qualities a good girl lacks
She bites her lip and tips her bottle
I take a drink cause the truth is hard to swallow

Sex and white lies
Handcuffs and alibies
She lays her halo on her pillow where she sleeps
Her heart beats red wine
My toxic valentine
Lays her halo on her pillow
That used to be mine
Oh oh oh

I live a life style full of first impressions
I've got my hands full of un-healthy obsessions
She bites my lip, I'm sure to follow
We take a drink to the guilty and the hollow
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Sex and white lies
Hand cuffs and alibies
She lays her halo on her pillow where she sleeps
Her heart beats red wine
My toxic valentine
She lays her halo on her pillow
That used to be mine

Oh oh
My toxic valentine
Oh oh
My toxic valentine

And I'm not the type to forget
Or to bury my head just
Take off your wings
They could never get you quite as high
As I did
And you know it

Sex and white lies
Handcuffs and alibi's
She lays her halo on her pillow where she sleeps
Her heart beats red wine
My toxic valentine
Lays her halo on her pillow that used to be
Sex and white lies
Handcuffs and alibi's
She lays her halo on her pillow where she sleeps
Her heart beats red wine
My toxic valentine
Lays her halo on her pillow that used to be
She lays her halo on her pillow that used to be
Mine

    General Commentthis song was written for a movie, it's not better than nothing personal in the least bit.

    General CommentI just looked at this soundtrack and it looks amazing! It features Florence and the Machine, ALL TIME LOW, Dashboard Confessional, Panic at the Disco, Silversun Pickups, AND Cobra Starship. And I rather like this song. It's not what we generally know as All Time Low, but it's cool and more like their earilier stuff. (like, REAL early)

    General CommentToo soon to tell if I like this song or not yet. It's a bit angrier than 'Nothing Personal' but it has a really catchy chorus!

    General CommentI think Toxic Valentine is better than most of the songs on NP. You can actually here the guitar and drums, but Alex's voice still has too much auto-tune.

    General CommentThis song feels more like home <3
    I like the guitar and whatnot.

    As for the meaning, it's pretty obvious...

    General Commenti thought he sang:

    she bites her lip and sips her bottle...

    but i'm not positive, it's unclear.

    definitely catchy though.

    General Commenti like it and understand most of it except;

    "Lays her halo on the pillow that used to be mine"

    anyone know what that means?
