lay another one to rest in the valley of my shadows opened up
bury all my expectations for a semi normal love
and with it burning in my palms
and massaging into my blood
i try to fight away my urges
"it’s only gonna rope you up girl!"
hear me, i know my capabilities
of breaking in the the only thing that saves you from you feelings of trust
believe the angel on your shoulder when she comes
cause your devil’s so familliar...
and mine’ll leave you flustered like..........
you count your tears like experience
and me just another sunken dream trying to deal with it calmly
reacting every situation since you called me.
head dug into my palms thinking she don’t honestly want this
and its obvious
the sorrow sets it off
hypnotizing both of us into agreeing with the odds
but in the dark
i got a chance to fight it off
instead i sleep with the chaos that’ll wander down the same damn path i chose to walk on.
she said it took her all her life she’s steady lookin at me like she caught a glimpse of something "i am not your paradise girl" and with it in me its better to save your wishes for the moment after sailing away "you should have never even asked"she said it took her all her life she’s steady lookin at me like she caught a glimpse of something "i am not your paradise girl" and with it in me its better to save your wishes for the moment after sailing away "i should have never even shown you"
what it’s like inside the world i keep a lock on.
purple hearted scar garden harvesting my thoughts song
and.. with the chalk gone
the problem still exists
at least the outline of its death prevents a nother fatal kiss
but thats impossible
neither one of opted to be positive
we stared each other in the face and screamed untill we lost it.
and the fire magnetically pulled both of us right on top of it
till one of us surrendered to rejection of the opposite.
and this is not a love song.
i’m working out my problems
the love songs what caused em. now i’m stuck and tryen to solve em
and its all forever tarnished
from begining to the end
you use my smile as an ashtray and inhale its ending sent
let it go.. please let it go this will kill you
reinventing us is not a miracle we still do... and..
just as certain as i speak it to you now...
i know i’ll wake up on the left side on the other side of town
listen!..

    General CommentThis is what I get from the song:

    I think it's about a guy who has opened up to a girl because he loves and trusts her, but when he does she doesn't like what she sees. She doesn't seem him in the same way she did before he revealved himself to her. He wishes he never bothered to show her now because he never wanted her to feel this way about him.

    Despite this, they both still love eachother, but he feels it's impossible to have what they had beforehand.

    Well, that's what I make of it, anyway.

    General Commentyes, i agree completely with that guy above me ^
    thats exactly what this song is about. some of the lyrics are iffy about it but as a whole, most of them point to that conclusion

    General CommentUmmm....... let's see here. i guess i see why the song COULD be about that. but what i think its about is something much more specific. I think part of ur explaination is true tho. from my perspective it is about a couple who love each other until she caught a glimpse of his arm and saw his cuts. that would explain "caught a glimpse of something" and the "i am not your paradise girl." But the cutting draws them apart hence the "i should've never even shown you"

    My InterpretationMaybe I think it's this because of my ex, but the way i've interpreted it is a girl fell in love with him. However, he isn't the guy to give her happiness, so he's trying to push her away because "head dug into my palms thinking she don’t honestly want this" he's doesn't believe that she can be in love with him because he knows who he is and he knows he can tear her apart. However, he does care about her, but he doesn't want to hurt her. "Please let it go! This'll kill you!"
    In the chorus, she realized she was in love with him "She started looking at me like she caught a glimpse of something." However, he will never be able to love her the way he should because of his own problems "This is not a love song, I'm working out my problems." He regrets showing her his better side (This I can relate to many different people who fear hurting the girl.) "I'm not your paradise girl, I should've never even showed you." He never wanted to hurt her, but "I can't make this right now," he couldn't love her back in the same way.
    Atleast, thats what I got from it.
