"Jet Black Heart" as written by David Hall Hodges, Calum Hood, Jonathan Ian Green and Michael Clifford....
Everybody’s got their demons
Even wide awake or dreaming
I’m the one who ends up leaving
Make it okay

See a war, I wanna fight it
See a match, I wanna strike it
Every fire I’ve ignited
Faded to grey

But now that I’m broken
Now that you know it
Caught up in a moment
Can you see inside?

'Cause I’ve got a jet black heart
And there’s a hurricane underneath it
Trying to keep us apart
I write with a poison pen
But these chemicals moving between us
Are the reason to start again

Now I’m holding on for dear life
There’s no way that we could rewind
Maybe there’s nothing after midnight
That could make you stay

But now that I’m broken
And now that you know it
Caught up in a moment
Can you see inside?

'Cause I’ve got a jet black heart
And there’s a hurricane underneath it
Trying to keep us apart
I write with a poison pen
But these chemicals moving between us
Are the reason to start again

The blood in my veins
Is made up of mistakes
Let’s forget who we are
And dive into the dark
As we burst into color
Returning to life

'Cause I’ve got a jet black heart
And there’s a hurricane underneath it
Trying to keep us apart
I write with a poison pen
But these chemicals moving between us
Are the reason to start again

The blood in my veins
Is made up of mistakes (to start again)
Let's forget who we are
And dive into the dark

    General CommentI think what they are saying here is that this person,author has some issues (everybody’s got their demons
    even wide awake or dreaming) and to protect the other person in the relationship, they decide to ''leave'', break up, let go (I’m the one who ends up leaving
    make it okay).

    ''Every fire I’ve ignited
    Faded to grey''
    Maybe this means that this person's past relationships didn't go so well and it was their fault.


    Again the person saying this probably has problems, issues with themselves and it's beginning to be a problem in the relationship (cause I’ve got a jet black heart
    and there’s a hurricane underneath it trying to keep us apart I write with a poison pen), but the relationship/love is what keeps them going, fighting through the problems (but these chemicals moving between us are the reason to start again)

    The realtionship is falling appart and the author is trying really hard to fix it (now I'm holding on for dear life), even though they know it's not gonna go back to what it was like in the past (there's no way that we can rewind).
