"Bleed Out" as written by Christopher Marsh Lindsey, David Keith Castell, Justin S. Furstenfeld, Mark Thomas Holman and Jeremy Stephen Raby....
Close my eyes
Feel you sigh
A desperate aching wonder
Will you ever, ever let me off my knees

Wide awake
Like a dream
As simple as a secret
Being told, told to everyone but me

Will I
Bleed out
I gave it all
But you can't stop taking from me
And way down I know
You know where to cut me
With your eyes closed
Bleed out
It won't be long
Til this heart stops beating
So don't let me
Bleed out here alone
Hear my plea
You won't hear my plea

Sudden rain
Coming down
It all comes back to me
Waking up, falling down

Another day
Come undone
I keep trying to heal your pain
In return, you cut me over and over
One more time and I will

Bleed out
I gave it all
But you can't stop taking from me
And way down I know
You know where to cut me
With your eyes closed
Bleed out
It won't be long
Til my heart stops beating
So don't let me
Bleed alone

I finally feel like I'm supposed to be, yeah, oh
Don't you take this moment away from me
But before you kill me wont you
Wont you look back in my eyes and watch me

Bleed out
I gave it all
But you can't stop taking from me
And way down I know
You know where to cut me
With your eyes closed
Bleed out
It won't be long
Til my heart stops beating
So don't leave me don't let me
Bleed out here alone
Hear my plea

Bleed out
I gave it all
But you can't stop taking from me
And way down I know
You know where to cut me
With your eyes closed
Bleed out
It won't be long
Til this heart stops beating
So don't leave me don't let me
Bleed out here alone

    My InterpretationRecently I've gone through a breakup, Through nearly 5 years I've been with this woman, Whom i truly still love. She has decided to leave me because i have been taking her for granted. This song means a lot to me because I feel like it represents Her feelings towards me, She loves me so much and all I've done is made her "bleed out" I've taken her heart and cut it out. I haven't been the man she deserves. That is why she has decided to leave me. It hurts me so much every time i hear this song because that's all I can think about. Maybe one day I can get my screwed up life together and work things with her, I pray that will happen because she is the woman I've wanted, and the only one I want. She is my everything, I just hope I can get my act together and treat her how she deserves, I never want her to "bleed out"... I love you Cristina

    My InterpretationThis is one giant metaphor for being in a relationship where the singer is in love with a woman that's all about using him and then leaving him to "bleed out" by himself... or willing to stick the knife in him by stepping out (or at least verbally abusing him).

    My InterpretationTHis is about a man and a woman in a dysfunctional relationship, where the woman asks for more than the man can give. the man gives everything he has to the girl and she takes everything and leaves. This happened to me very recently.

    General CommentThough Justin, the lead singer of Blue October, is singing this... the words are actually his girl's perspective of the relationship. They're married now and I'm pretty sure they're happy, but it wasn't always easy for her with him.

    Song MeaningThis is his wife song, and is sang from her perspective to him, this taking into the account the hurt he brought about to her in the two year he has shared with her, and that he took how she feel into account, and changed

    General CommentI think it's about his ugly custody battle over his daughter with his ex wife. Gaining sobriety and still fighting to gain more visitation with his daughter. An article in February stated he just barely got it to where they can coparent well and see his daughter when ever he makes time. Before that it was a long drawn out never ending battle.
