"Follow You" as written by and Oliver Scott Sykes Jordan Keith Attwood Fish....
My head is haunting me and my heart feels like a ghost.
I need to feel something cause I'm still so far from home.
Cross your heart and hope to die.
Promise me you'll never leave my side.

Show me what I can't see when the spark in my eyes is gone.
You got me on my knees I'm your one man cult.
Cross my heart and hope to die.
Promise you I'll never leave your side.

Cause I'm telling you you're all I need.
I promise you you're all I see.
Cause I'm telling you you're all I need.
I'll never leave...

So you can drag me through Hell,
If it meant I could hold your hand.
I will follow you cause I'm under your spell.
And you can throw me to the flames.
I will follow you, I will follow you...

Come sink into me and let me breathe you in.
I'll be your gravity, you'll be my oxygen.
So dig two graves cause when you die,
I swear I'll be leaving by your side.

So you can drag me through Hell,
If it meant I could hold your hand.
I will follow you cause I'm under your spell.
And you can throw me to the flames.
I will follow you...

So you can drag me through Hell,
If it meant I could hold your hand.
I will follow you cause I'm under your spell.
And you can throw me to the flames.
I will follow you, I will follow you...
I will follow you, I will follow you...

So you can drag me through Hell,
If it meant I could hold your hand.
I will follow you cause I'm under your spell.
And you can throw me to the flames.
I will follow you, I will follow you...

    My InterpretationOli said he had written this song a few years back and found it while digging for material for TTS.

    In the album commentary, he says it was written when him "and [his] other half were going through a particularly rough patch" (his other half being his longtime girlfriend, now wife, Hannah). In his words, it was a sort of apology for his behavior and his show of devotion to her.

    So no, it's about a person (pretty rare for Oli because he tries to be general in most songs) and not drugs or whatever.

    General CommentIt could be about a person who isn't good for you. You really love him/her but at the same time he/she doesn't care a bit about you.
    But since Oli said most songs of this album are about his addiction I this this 'person' is just a metaphor for the drugs.

    General CommentI love this song so much! Bit off topic, but has anyone heard of the band FROM INSIDE?? Well I read on Twitter that Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish have written all the music for them cos they are good friends in the UK. Check out their music video for their single BE YOURSELF - FROM INSIDE by searching on Youtube, it sounds very BMTH but still its ridiculous good obviously. Mad that they are doing this too for friends bands now, really love them :D x

    My InterpretationBeing in love with someone who doesn't love you back, and doing anything for them just to be with them, even if it destroys you.

    General CommentI love this song and the video. I think its about someone who would do anything to be with the person they love forever. (You could drag me through hell if it meant I could hold your hand) I think its pretty straight forward but it all depends on how you interpret things.
