As I choke, tried to wash you down with something strong
Dry, but the taste of blood remains
All these cold empty mattresses and falling stars
My, how they start to look the same

So keep in happiness and torture me while I
Tell you "let's go in style."
A million hooks around
A million ways to die,
Darlin' it's cold outside.

No, no more eyes to see the sun
You slide into bed while I get drunk
Slow conversations with a gun mean
More than I've ever said to anyone

So keep in happiness
And torture me while I
Tell you "let's go in style."
A million hooks around
A million ways to die,
Darlin' let's go inside
It'll be alright.

But last night you said you ended up in
Palm Springs dancin' on tables,
Almost fought some bitch at the club
Got kicked out of your hotel and lost your shoes
Well, fuck what am I supposed to be, impressed?
You're just another set of bones to lay to rest
So I'll say goodnight hope you had a really good time

So keep in happiness
And torture me while I
Tell you "let's go in style."
A million hooks around
A million ways to die,
Let's go outside.
It'll be alright.

But last night you said you ended up in
Palm Springs dancin' on tables.

    My InterpretationTo me this song talks about a couple, or friends who've committed suicide together, at first with the first verse

    As I choke, tried to wash you down
    With something strong, dry
    But the taste of blood remains.
    All these cold empty mattresses
    And falling stars, my how
    They start to look the same.

    I thought that it was about someone who killed somebody, or watched someone commit suicide, but then with the lyrics

    Tell you "let's go in style."
    A million hooks around
    A million ways to die,
    Darlin' it's cold outside.
    &
    No, no more eyes to see the sun
    You slide into bed while I get drunk
    Slow conversations with a gun mean
    More than I've ever said to anyone

    It makes me think about a couple who've committed suicide together or he's confiding in his depression to his friend or girlfriend
    This is just my personal opinion I don't know what the rest of you think

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song I was thinking he was trying to get his ex out of his mind, like most of his songs, but in this one it changed. She ended up trying to come back to him for help and he refused to, in my opinion.
