"Until We Bleed" as written by Lykke Li Timotej Zachrisson, Mikael Karlsson and Andreas Kleerup....
I'm naked
I'm numb
I'm stupid
I'm staying
And if Cupid's got a gun, then he's shootin'

Lights black, heads bang
You're my drug
We live it
You're drunk, you need it
Real love, I'll give it
So we're bound to linger on
We drink the fatal drop
Then love until we bleed
Then fall apart in parts

You wasted your times
On my heart
You've burned
And if bridges gotta fall, then you'll fall, too

Doors slam
Lights black
You're gone
Come back
Stay gone
Stay clean
I need you to need me
So we're bound to linger on
We drink the fatal drop
Then love until we bleed
Then fall apart in parts

Now we're bound to linger on
We drink the fatal drop
Then love until we bleed
Then fall apart in parts

    General Commentfirst of let me start out by saying this song is ahhmmazing!!!

    I'm naked
    I'm numb
    I'm stupid
    I'm staying
    And if Cupid's got a gun
    Then he's shootin'
    [what i think this is you know when your in a something wheter its friends with benefits or whatever after you have sex with them.your naked, your numb;you know when your in that parasite relationship after sex its like your numb because you know your not soppused to get feelings for them other than phsycally so you try so hard to feel numb.im stupid,im staying basically means you know that your making a stupid decision but your staying.the last lines just mean that you basically bitten by the love bug HARD]sometimes i also think that like when your in bed&you know that person just wanted sex but you want to stay with him and feel that intimacy not just sex.
    Lights black
    Heads bang
    You're my drug
    We live it
    You're drunk, you need it
    Real love, I'll give it
    [to me this is when your going to have ex,the light are turned off ,your heads bang which could mean like being physically close to someone.the your my drug we live it means what it say.she needs him .the drunk part is he needs to be drunk just to be with her.i once was in a relationship with a guy that everytime we did anything intimate he had to drink later on i found oout he was still into hiis ex.her saying real love ill give it means ill give you that geniune love.ill be her.]
    So we're bound to linger on
    We drink the fatal drop
    Then love until we bleed
    Then fall apart in parts
    [this means that their both going to be there with each other no matter if hes their for sex only and she actually cares about him.the second line i think is that theyll have sex again no matter how they feel afterwards than after all of is done theyll go on feeling like shit for their own reasons]
    You wasted your times
    On my heart
    You've burned
    And if bridges gotta fall
    Then you'll fall too
    [he chosed his ex so he wasted his time on the girl he was having sex with ,shes saying thath you def hurt mw and if you pick her than were done this relationship is done you cant come back,and at the end you will fall beacuse you know you shouldnt be with her]
    Doors slam
    Lights black
    You're gone
    Come back
    Stay gone
    Stay clean
    I need you to need me
    [hes leaving shes begging him not to go,to stay with her,to need her not the other girl.i think her saying stay gone stay clean meaning at first she was like dont leve me than actually keave but dont come back hope you can not come back to me than she begged him agin to stay]
    the rest just i think is her saying youll come back,shes not right for you,you know it. but it all k=just fallas all over agin because his ex wil never leave her.

    General CommentI love this song. It's got a trance-like feel to it. I'm surprised no one has commented on it. I'm not sure what it means. Maybe it's about having feelings for someone who doesn't want you back but will have sex with you. I don't know..

    General CommentI've been listening to this song constantly, it's reminding me of someone and breaking my heart with every listen. Definitely about a toxic relationship in which she needs a guy who doesn't care about her in the least except when it's convenient for him.

    General CommentIt's about a relationship where one person truly loves the other, but the other loves their substances. In this case alcohol. "You're drunk, you need it. Real love, I'll give it."

    Song MeaningI agree with herspotlessmind, except I think in addition to the alcohol, it's also an abusive relationship. Because the person is always drunk, he leaves violently and she's begging him to stay clean so he won't come back with anger or violence.
