"Song For Isabelle" as written by and Victor Vincent Fuentes Michael Fuentes....
She paints in grey
She closes her eyes
Till fireworks and palm trees almost look alike
She looks up to me and whispers
"I won't be here in a year"

So I take the long road to think and wonder why
I can't sleep with all this sunlight
If there's still evidence of us
Why can't that be enough?

I don't mean to drag you down
You taste just like you always do

Isabelle hides so I can find my way
I'd give anything just to surround your dreams, oh

The envy of the dead
The sound of scissors and sleep
I can't believe you dreamed and pulled all of your clothes off
You're not supposed to drink with what's inside your purse
And not expect me to not to call you out

I'm guiding your chin to my lips
Using only my fingertips
All we have are parking lots and nowhere to go, if you love me
Then show me more

Isabelle watches me from far away
I'd give anything just to surround your dreams
I know you like when the temperature rises to a boiling heat
The chlorine and wine found, he sees through her nightgown
And everything fades away

The stars awake
But we can't see them out, so why pretend?
Is there a train that travels back to yours at five AM?
Or are we walking?
Car alarms and leaves that blow
They're calling out our names
But it's gone too far
Your butane mouth will spit me into flames

Sorry 'bout it, I can't help it I'm an anarchist in love
And I forgot to call you, I can't break you down while
I think about honey and the sweet New York sounds

Isabelle hides so I can't find my way
I'd give anything to carry on and on and on the same way
The temperature rises to this boiling heat
The chlorine and wine found, he sees through her nightgown
As Saturday burns away, oh

Back in the days, when I was young
I’m not a kid anymore
But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
Back in the days when I was young
I'm not a kid anymore
But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again

    My InterpretationI think this song isn't about a person named Isabelle. In fact, I think the song refers to drugs or pills.
    "You taste just like you always do" means the taste of the pill, it always tastes the same and has done ever since the beginning.
    "If there's still evidence of us" means that the person is trying to give up the pill, but is addicted to it and just searching for a way to say 'no' to it.
    Anyways, that's what I think the song means, feels free to comment.

    Song FactOn Pierce the Veil's website, in the interactive section that has all the song meanings, it says that this song is "About a friend who suffered mental health issues, and left this world because she couldn't handle how poorly people treated each other."
    Pretty sad, but according to the writers of the song, that is indeed the meaning.

    Song MeaningIsabelle is a real person. She was somebody I met on tour. She’s a really beautiful girl who’s a friend of ours and would hang out at our shows. The last time I saw her, she had become really depressed and told me she couldn’t understand why people treated each other the way they do. She just couldn’t handle that concept of people treating each other so badly all over the world. It tore her apart. I’ve never seen or heard of anything like this. She told me she wouldn’t be here in a year. She thought she would end her life because she couldn’t take what was going on out there. It blew my mind. Here was this pretty girl who seemed to be fine, but she had all of these internal struggles going on that she just couldn’t handle. For a year, I was wondering if she was okay. It was crazy. It consumed me for a while. I eventually found out that she was fine and she pulled through. Hopefully she found something or someone to show her the joy in life.

    My OpinionI think this song is about someone in love. this "Isabelle" girl is the person he loves.
    I think the chorus "Isabelle hides so I can find my way / I'd give anything to surround your dreams" means that his lover stays out of the way or "hides" when the man needs to figure things out. i also think he feels the need to always be on her mind.
    also the line "you're not supposed to drink with what's inside your purse and not expected me not to call you out" I think this means "Isabelle" has a drinking problem of some sort? and the dude notices but he's trying to stay sweet for her or something idk
    this is just my opinion so sorry if it's not right
