"Stitches" as written by and Teddy Geiger Dj....
I thought that I've been hurt before
But no one's ever left me quite this sore
Your words cut deeper than a knife
Now I need someone to breathe me back to life

Got a feeling that I'm going under
But I know that I'll make it out alive
If I quit calling you my lover
Move on

You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
I'm shaking falling onto my knees
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
I'm tripping over myself
Aching begging you to come help
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches

Just like a moth drawn to a flame
Oh you lured me in I couldn't sense the pain
Your bitter heart cold to the touch
Now I'm gonna reap what I sow
I'm left seeing red on my own

Got a feeling that I'm going under
But I know that I'll make it out alive
If I quit calling you my lover
Move on

You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
I'm shaking falling onto my knees
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
I'm tripping over myself
Aching begging you to come help
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches

Needle and the thread
Gotta get you out of my head
Needle and the thread
Gonna wind up dead

Needle and the thread
Gotta get you out of my head
Needle and the thread
Gonna wind up dead

Needle and the thread
Gotta get you out of my head
Needle and the thread
Gonna wind up dead

Needle and the thread
Gotta get you out of my head, get you out of my head

You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
I'm shaking falling onto my knees (falling on my knees)
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches (and I'll be needing stitches)
I'm tripping over myself
Aching begging you to come help (begging baby please)
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches

And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches

    My InterpretationThis song is about him realizing he's in a toxic relationship and making himself leave, no matter how much it hurts.

    My InterpretationAwesome song. A guy has clearly fallen hard for his "dream girl" (or so he thought ). After all, she seemed like everything he was looking for. Things really took off between them, and and came to a screeching halt just as fast. She doesn't love him anymore. He is emotionally wounded as he struggles to overcome his feelings of unrequitted love.

    Moving on is hard, and the girl's not willing to make it any easier. Perhaps she just doesn't care about him anymore, or maybe letting him down easily would be too inconvenient. Whatever the reason, he is hurt, and the pain is so real that it might as well be physically inflicted. Despite the hurt, he keeps returning to its source, "like a moth to a flame". Love is irrational and this might not make sense. But the truth is, part of him still loves the girl and wants to be with her.

    Yet an even bigger part of him knows better. To feel whole again, he must fight these feelings and "move on". It's a struggle. But he knows he will make it. As he fights his poorer judgment, he searches for "needle and thread" (new love) to help stitch his wounds and bring him back to himself.

    General CommentWhat if this song is his way of pointing out that men can be abused in a relationship just as much as a woman can be. What if he wanted to leave the relationship, every time he wanted to leave she would abuse him. This happened so often that he didn't know how to go about leaving her?

    This is a shot in the dark, but it could definitely be a possibility..

    My InterpretationThe song is just about dealing with the pain of breaking up and the hurtful things that people say to each other but focusing on moving on. I love this kid's voice! I read he is a Canadian whose mom is English and his dad is Portuguese. His name reminds me of my daughter's friends with an Irish mom and a Latino dad because their first names are Irish and their last names are Latino.

    General CommentInteresting discussion. I interpret the lyrics to be about a guy with a broken heart, trying to get over it. But the idea that it's a metaphor for addiction works too.

    Does anyone else think the lines beginning with "Needle and the thread..." sound like something from an old nursery rhyme? Probably not, but that part really caught my attention.

    General CommentMy co-workers told me it was about his addiction to Heroin???

    I was like, "Nooooooo, say it ain't so" but now that I really really listen to the lyrics, it could possibly be that :-( disturbing, I know.

    "Needle in a thread, gonna wind up dead" [Heroin needle in his vein, which may eventually kill him]

    "I'm without your kisses, I'll be needing stitches" [With putting the heroin in him "Heroin kisses" he'll be going through withdrawal and will probably start scratching, or doing whatever happens, to himself, during withdrawal]

    General CommentObviously a song about a gay relationship. "No one's ever left me quite this sore." Hello? No male with any sort of masculinity would utter such a statement. Lots of mentions of needles - phallic.
