I never knew what I would do
If anybody tried to take you away
And your beautiful boy won't wait for you
Because he's busy with the stars and the fame

And I don't know why I breathe
It's taking too long for me
Can we speed up the process, please?
Or show me the one I need

I need somebody (somebody)
Somebody crazy enough to tell me
I will love you till we (I will love you till we)
Till we are buried
Our bodies (our bodies)
Our bodies buried close together
Cemetery weather
In the cemetery weather

I never knew what I would do
If anybody tried to speak your name
I would tear down their house and
I'd burn my way around the brightest memory of your face

Cause I would do anything (anything, anything)
Cause love is a selfish thing (Don't care what you think)
And I'll feed off the wounds that bleed
And tear you away from me

I need somebody (somebody)
Somebody crazy enough to tell me
I will love you till we (I will love you till we)
Till we are buried
Our bodies (our bodies)
Our bodies buried close together
Cemetery weather
In the cemetery weather

Violent delight
We'll live as if we died
Violent delight
Live as if we died
My violent delight
Live as if we died
My violent delight
Live as if we died
My violent delight, violent delight

So come on, come on
I won't leave without you

If we die then we die
And I'll sing this buried with you

Violent delight
Live as if we die
My violent delight, violent delight

I need somebody (somebody)
Somebody crazy enough to tell me
I will love you till we (I will love you till we)
Till we are buried
Our bodies (our bodies)
Our bodies buried close together
Cemetery weather
In the cemetery weather

I never knew what I would do
If anybody tried to take you away

    General CommentIt's violent delight,

    reference to Romeo and Juliet?
    "These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, Which, as they kiss, consume."

    Possibly?

    General CommentI loooooove the intense discussion about the meaning of this song...NOT!

    The words are obviously "violent delight" and "tear down" but if thats what the whole song meaning is about then why leave a comment!

    Does anyone have any idea what this may mean? I really like the Romeo and Juliet reference. Think about it, "live as if we die"? "If we die then we die"? "I need somebody crazy enough to tell me I will love you 'till we are buried.."

    Or maybe someone who is so lonely and cannot find love or fulfillment anywhere and all they want is something or someone to be incredibly true and never leave them.

    But let's get this conversation going!

    General CommentYeah, I'm still unsure about what he's saying. I'll wait for some more input before changing it, though.

    General Commenti heard violence and light first time through, and continue to feel like that's probably what he's saying.

    still just guesses though :P

    Lyric CorrectionI believe the following is correct.

    Cause I would do anything (anything, anything)
    *This love is a selfish thing (Don't care what you think)
    *It'll feed off the wounds that bleed
    And tear you away from me
