"heartbeat slowing down" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
I still remember that empty look left on your face
You took the pictures but you left the frames
All we had written, well, it's been erased
Something that I had to do
I cut you deep, you're bleeding through
You're every single shade of blue
I'm staring right in front of you

I can hear your heartbeat slowing down
I can hear your heartbeat turn me around
You can take my life
All you need, make me right
I can't sleep with your heartbeat slowing down

Here you left scattered
Like wishes I led to your room
Bury my face in your pillow
Just to smell your perfume
Outside I'm hungry
But inside I'm just consumed
Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe
Losing you is choking me

I can hear your heartbeat slowing down
I can hear your heartbeat turn me around
You can take my life
All you need, make me right
I can't sleep with your heartbeat slowing down

I fucking hate this town
I wanna burn it down
I never felt so cold
And when I burn this town
I hope I burn it down
And leave me on my own
I fucking hate this town
I wanna burn it down
I never felt so cold

I can hear your heartbeat slowing down

I can hear your heartbeat slowing down
I can hear your heartbeat turn me around
You can take my life
All you need, make me right
How can you sleep with your heartbeat slowing down
I can hear your heartbeat slowing down

    My Interpretationokay so I have no idea why, but this is how I get this song. Not that any of the guys has actually been through that kind of situation, I think. I heard this song for the first time about two months ago. I pictured a guy saying stuff mentioned in the lyrics to this girl with issues (drug addict, family issues, depression ...). They were together for a while but he had to leave her. He feels sorry and all that crap, but it's something he just HAD TO do (Something that I had to do/ I cut you deep, you're bleeding through). the girl fell in love with him and now feels betrayed and lonely and keeps ruining her own life by doing drugs. he can see that, but doesn't know what to do. he sees that she's slowly killing herself (I can feel your heartbeat slowing down) and it's sort of getting to him, he begins to hate himself and questions his decisions (I can hear your heartbeat turn me around). he wants to help her but doesn't know how so he feels cold and heartless (I've never felt so cold) but he's actually furious and mad at himself for breaking her heart. anyway, he realizes that getting back together with her would be even worse.

    I guess this is because I'd once used drugs because of a guy. It was incredibly stupid, but I felt like shit (not that I don't feel that way anymore) and thought it was the only way out (for a little while)

    General CommentAAR came to my city recently, and I went with a friend from high school.

    Right before he sang this song, Tyson talked about it. He said something about how we all have our "greats." And by that I think he meant great loves. He went on to say that this song was dedicated to a girl that he had hurt. He was on the shitting end of a break up or something, and this was an apology to her. He also said that he sings it every night in the hope that it will give her nightmares or make her think of him. He also said she is domesticated now and married and happy.

    General CommentI love the usage of the phrase "I can feel your heartbeat slowing down" to indicate a relationship burning out--the words make me think of the beginning of a relationship, when you're with someone and you're heart's beating out of your chest from the excitement and love. Whenever I hear this song, the imagery comes to mind of love igniting and burning in the form of fast heartbeats and then love fading away, your "heartbeat slowing down."
