Remember
Remember me
Remember me
Remember me
Remember me
Remember me

Where, where will we stand?
When all the lights go out
Across these city streets
Where were you when
All of the embers fell
I still remember there
Covered in ash
Covered in glass
Covered in all my friends
I still
Think of the bombs they built

If that's the best that I could be?
Than I'd be another memory
Can I be the only hope for you?
Because you're the only hope for me
And if we can find where we belong,
We'll have to make it on our own.
Face all the burn and take it on
Because the only hope for me is you alone

How would you be
Many as after the disaster that we've seen
What we have learned
Of all the people burning
Purifying flame

I say it's okay
I know you can tell
And though you can see me smile
I still
Think of the guns they sell

If that's the best that I could be?
Than I'd be another memory
Can I be the only hope for you?
Because you're the only hope for me
And if we can find where we belong,
We'll have to make it on our own
Face all the burn and take it on
Because the only hope for me is you alone

The only hope for me
The only hope for me is you
The only hope
For me is you
The only hope
For me is you
The only hope
For me is you
The only hope

If that's the best that I could be?
Than I'd be another memory
Can I be the only hope for you?
Because you're the only hope for me
And if we can find where we belong,
We'll have to make it on our own
Face all the burn and take it on
Because the only hope for me is you alone

The only hope for me is you
The only hope for me is you
The only hope for me is you
The only hope for me is you
The only hope for me is you
The only hope for me is you
The only hope for me is you
The only hope for me is you alone

Remember me
Remember me
Remember me

    General CommentThis song sounds great, but the lyrics are pretty sad.

    The first thing I thought of when I heard the lyrics of the first verse is 9/11. It's obviously something that has affected Gerard a lot - after all, it indirectly led to the creation of MCR - and it's interesting that he's chosen to weave it into this song, condsidering how many years have now passed since the bombing.

    It's the chorus that really sounds sad. The lines, "If there's a place that I could be / Then I'd be another memory," tied in with what's said in the verses ... he's essentially saying that he wishes he were dead, that he had died with his friends. It's very depressing.

    I hope the band will reveal more about their characters for this album. This storyline already seems infinitely more interesting than that of The Black Parade.

    General CommentAnyone think the burning imagery in the first & second verse has to do with Gerard witnessing the people falling from the buildings on 9/11?

    General CommentIt's interesting that the first two singles are so incredibly different musically, like in their style. But I love them both, and I love that My Chem can pull both off so well. This song is beautiful.

    General CommentI think this band's actually gotten better since The Black Parade. I never got too into Bullets or Three Cheers, but The Black Parade is one of my favorite albums of all time - the concept part of it is really great, and it was just done very well. And this is also going to be a concept album, I believe? If they do it half as well as they did it on that album, this should be a great work.

    I like this song a lot, particularly the synth bit at the beginning. It's really very sweet and honest feeling. Rather not think too hard on meaning since I've only listened to it a few times...

    And I agree with Adalia - Na Na Na and Only Hope are really very different. And both are completely different from anything else this band's done before. I love how they actually attempt to make progress musically; something you don't hear from a lot of bands as mainstream as MCR. Prog rock in pop culture is essentially dead, but this band certainly makes the attempt without ever crossing into an area where they'd lose their audience. Damn good band, really.

    General CommentI love this band so much, this song is really good, and I love Na Na Na just as much, but does anyone else think that the first verse is a holocaust reference, or it sounds like he is looking back on a nuclear holocaust or something like that. Go MCR!

    General CommentGah, did you guys forget the concept of the album? Yes, it could be a reference to 9/11, and he could still be inspired by the whole imagery about it, but this takes place in a apocalyptic world in 2019. Apparently the first verse follows a battle between the Killjoys and the Dracs, if I had to guess right.

    General CommentLoving the new sound! I think the lyrics can be interpreted a little deeper than just 9/11. They reference the selling of guns & many other disasters that have occurred; leading up to the dystopian world of the new album. The message I take from the chorus is that although the mistakes of the past are figuratively burned into memory, there is always a new reason to continue fighting to live.
