"Collar Full" as written by Brendon Boyd Urie and Dallon James Weekes....
We've waited so damn long, we're sick and tired
I won't leave any doubt or stone unturned
I've got a collar full of chemistry from your company
So maybe tonight I'll be the libertine

Show me your love, your love
Gimme more but it's not enough
Show me your love, your love
Before the world catches up
'Cause there's always time for second guesses, I don't wanna know
If you're gonna be the death of me, that's how I wanna go

You've got it all worked out with so little time
Memories that I'd blackout if you were mine
You've got a pocket full of reasons why you're here tonight
So, baby, tonight just be the death of me

Show me your love, your love
Gimme more but it's not enough
Show me your love, your love
Before the world catches up
'Cause there's always time for second guesses, I don't wanna know
If you're gonna be the death of me, that's how I wanna go

Show me your love, your love
Gimme more but it's not enough
Show me your love, your love
Before the world catches up
Show me your love, your love
Gimme more but it's not enough
Show me your love, your love
Before the world catches up
Show me your love
Show me your love

    My InterpretationDon't know if I'm right, but this is my interpretation of the song, from the perspective of someone who has been in love with a girl:

    "We've waited so damn long, we're sick and tired"
    He's saying he's felt this way for awhile, and can't wait any longer to tell her how he feels, the possibility of a relationship has waited for so long.

    "I won't leave any doubt or stone unturned"
    He can't go on without telling her how he feels, and needs to know whether or not she feels that way, aka he won't leave any stone unturned.

    "I've got a collar full of chemistry from your company"
    He feels something with her, they always have a good time together.

    "So maybe tonight I'll be the libertine"
    A libertine, being reckless, he wants to tell her how he feels, regardless of the consequences.

    "Show me your love, your love
    Gimme more but it's not enough"
    He wants her to love him in the same way he loves her, he feels it's not enough

    "Show me your love, your love
    Before the world catches up"
    Not exactly sure what he means by "before the world catches up," but perhaps it's a love that is looked down on society, and he wants her to show him her love before the rest of the world disapproves it and gets to her head.

    "'Cause there's always time for second guesses, I don't wanna know"
    If she's having doubts, or second guesses, he doesn't want her to think about it now.

    "If you're gonna be the death of me, that's how I wanna go"
    He feels that the pain of being rejected is worth not telling her, and even if it kills him, it was worth it.

    "You've got it all worked out with so little time"
    Perhaps she's already with someone in this verse, and she feels as if she's already planned her life, but he knows that she's moving to fast in so little time.

    "Memories that I'd blackout if you were mine"
    He's saying if he were her, he would forget the other guy because she's not good for him.

    "You've got a pocket full of reasons why you're here tonight"
    He's saying that she's here with the singer, spending time with him and not the other guy for a reason.

    "So, baby, tonight just be the death of me"
    A reference to the chorus, he is going to tell her how he feels, even if it is the death of him.

    Beautiful song.

    My InterpretationPersonally, I believe it's about having se with the person you love for the first time.

    Like in the first verse
    "We've waited so damn long, we're sick and tired"
    They decided to wait and know they can't take it anymore
    "I won't leave any doubt or stone unturned"
    Now that they're about to have sex, he's gonna use it to show how deeply in love with her he is by basically loving her in everyday possible.
    "I've got a collar full of chemistry from your company"
    He has so much love and lust for her
    So maybe tonight I'll be the libertine"
    A libertine is basically someone who acts without morals, especially in sexual matters.

    And the chorus
    "Show me your love, your love"
    Gimme more but it's not enough
    Show me your love, your love"
    No matter how much "love" they make in the time they have it'll never truly be enough
    "Before the world catches up"
    They're so into the moment that they're in their own world and have left reality behind
    "'Cause there's always time for second guesses, I don't wanna know"
    He wants to show how much he loves her before he changes her mind about him. And every if she does, he doesn't want to know.
    "If you're gonna be the death of me, that's how I wanna go"
    Kind of self explanatory

    And the second verse
    "You've got it all worked out with so little time"
    Yeah, this one I have absolutely no clue...
    "Memories that I'd blackout if you were mine"
    Hints that perhaps that he's in love with a girl who's already taken or has been through a breakup and he's saying he'll help her forget
    "You've got a pocket full of reasons why you're here tonight"
    Maybe she doesn't love him as much as he loves her and her reason for seeping with him are different than his
    "So, baby, tonight just be the death of me"
    Again self explanatory

    But this is just what I get out of the song, I may be wrong but I just wanted to share my thoughts
