I wish your mind was more like your heart
Nailed shut
Looking back, can't remember too much love

Now when I fall down
When I get weak
When I grow tired
I'll never drop my sword

Tell me a sadder story
So I can fall asleep
The right way, if I knew the right away
Well, we wouldn't be here

Now when I fall down
When I get weak
When I grow tired
I'll never drop my sword

Do you think Jesus loves me?
Can I go home again?

I'm a boy.

    General CommentPff this is a tricky one for me to understand.

    I think from the vocal style its from a childs perspective.
    The mind like your heart bit is basically telling someone to stop overthinking but then its sad because the persons heart is nailed shut (repressed emotions).

    I think theres some religion to it too (do you think jesus loves me?) I know Jonnys parents are devout catholics and he probably wasn't the best role model of a catholic boy (he may have been a bit feminine hence the I'm a boy line) so he questioned his religon at some point.

    It could be about his parents I suppose (tell me a sad story so I can fall asleep) and I'll never drop my sword could mean he won't give up his own personal faith.
