I told you right from the start
A knife up to your throat for one put through my heart
Couldn't hold on and this I should have known
Thinking back as I walk the night alone

I told you that my love was true
I asked you to walk away if you don't feel like I do
You whispered that you would be mine always
I felt myself slipping away

I love you forever
'Till death do us part

'Till the night goes

Night gives me no rest and I cannot sleep
When I can I see your face it's tattooed on my dreams
Purple heart pumps sorrow through my veins
I awaken, I'm calling out your name

I often think back to that night
The moment when I found out that our love was a lie
Felt like I would die I couldn't stand the pain
And there's nothing left except for one thing - I've gotta see you again

And I said...

I'll love you forever.
'Till death do us part

Forever is over
Forever is over
It's over, it's over
It ended on that night...
That I took your fucking life

    General CommentThis song rocks. Powerful shit. Tiger Army sounds a lot like a psychobilly version of AFI at times..specially with the whoa's in the background. Maybe Nick13 needs to stop hanging out with Davey so much.. wait..if I knew davey, I'd be hanging out with him a lot too.

    General CommentYes, the old AFI bAssist is in Tiger Army.
    AdAm CArson both drums for AFI And drummed for Tiger Army.
    DAvey And Nick13 used to go to GilmAn.
    AFI = HAs T.A bAck-ups vox
    Tigrr Army = HAs AFI bAck-up vox.

    ....Now, Are there Any other people thAt wAnt to sAy, "HEY, THEY"RE LIKE AFI!" or vice versA? The bAnds Are friends. ..Jeez. *feels like A hypocrite for using this site As A fucking chAt room*

    wow....tiger army is amazing...the screaming in the background of the songs are also very good..obviously this is about how his romance is true..his love is true...and the moment he found out that their love was a lie...he wanted to die.and it couldnt stand it so he "tooker her fuc**ing life"

    General CommentThis is a pretty powerful song...To me, it's kinda telling about how one person may pour their heart into a relationship, while the other just tells them what they want to hear. And in the end, none of it was real, yet the person that was true to their heart is still wanting more...Kinda sad.
