"Black Dahlia" as written by Aron Erlichman, Jorel Decker and George Arthur Ragan....
I loved you, you made me, hate me.
You gave me hate, see?.
It saved me and these tears are deadly.
You feel that?
I rip back, every time you tried to steal that.
You feel bad? You feel sad?
I'm sorry, hell no fuck that!
It was my heart, it was my life, it was my start, it was your knife.
This strife, it dies, this life and these lies.
And these lungs, have sung, this song, for too long,
And it's true, I hurt too, remember I loved you.

[Chorus]
I've, lost it all, fell today, it's all the same
I'm sorry oh,
I'm sorry no
I've, been abused, I feel so used, because of you
I'm sorry oh,
I'm sorry no

I wish I could have quit you,
I wish I never missed you,
And told you that I loved you, every time I fucked you.
The future that we both drew, and all the shit we've been through,
Obsessed with the thought of you, the pain just grew and grew.
How could you do this to me?
Look at what I made for you, it never was enough and the world is what I gave to you.
I used to be love struck, now I'm just fucked up,
Pull up my sleeves and see the pattern of my cuts.

[Chorus]

Seems like all we had is over now you left to rest.
And your tears are dried up now, you just lay without a sound.
Seems like all we had is over now, you left to rest.
And my fears are over now,
I can leave with my head down.

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis was my first favorite song by them. There could be a couple different meanings to it if you listen closely and really think about it.
    It could mean that the person screwed him over and really hurt him and he's done with them for good and won't come back.
    It could mean that the person hurt him and he left by the way it sounds and him saying technically that "you hurt me so it's over" kind of thing.
    He says "and it's true I hurt too, remember I loved you" as if he had left the person and it may have hurt them but it hurt him too.
    The fact that the end of the song says "seems like all we have is over now YOU LEFT TO REST, and my tears are dried up now YOU JUST LAY WITHOUT A SOUND", I'm thinking maybe after they broke up she may have committed suicide or something.
    That's just my guess as to what it could mean but I think I may have done a pretty good job. I love this song so much because I have some personal experience with it. Also, because it's really beautiful.
