Nothing was supposed to hurt like this.
Missing you was always one more kiss.
Now there's nothing that I can do.
One more nail in the coffin, and it's all for you.

Always were and always were a simple love story.
You were everything I ever hoped and dreamed.
Drown me in a pool of my blood.
It's getting harder just to breathe.

I'll suffocate you faster just so you can't see, so you can't see me sleep.
It's getting harder just to say the right things.
I've seen the angel's face, and I've heard her sing to me.
From my reflection on this razor

Blade, I've heard ten thousand dying screams,
And they're calling me. the day
Will break on this saddest day, so don't let me wake.
I've heard this all before, and I've seen this over and over again.

Don't let me wake.
Drown me in a pool of my blood.
It's getting harder just to breathe.
I'll suffocate you faster just so you can't see, so you can't see me sleep.

So you can't see me sleep.
The day will break on this saddest day, so don't let me wake.
I've heard this all before, and I've seen this over and over again.
Don't let me wake.

Nothing was supposed to hurt like this.
And missing you, was always one more kiss.
And now there's nothing that I can do.
There's just one more nail in the coffin.

There's just one more nail, and it's all for you.
I've seen the angel's face, and I've heard her sing to me.
From my reflection on this razor blade,
I've heard ten thousand dying screams,

And they're calling me.
The day will break on this saddest day, so don't let me wake.
I've heard this all before, and I've seen this over and over again.
Don't let me wake

    General CommentAmazing Song.

    My Opinion:
    about falling down and not being able to even get up and not evening wanting to struggle.

    General Commentthis is probably one of the best songs ive heard in a long time. to me, its about losing someone that you really cared about and now you feel like you cant go on without them so you want to kill them. and then off yourself.

    General CommentTo me this is about hard times and how they've happened before and that you're just to the point where you don't want to care anymore when you realize that it can get better in time...maybe that's just what I think because of my own personal feelings these days

    General Commenti got this song accidentally by looking to find avenged sevenfold - bat country. but as soon as i heard this, i wanted to know who was it by because its so awesome.

    i think this is about a guy who loved a girl so much, but realised she didn't like him at much, and then they broke up, and he started to hate her so much, and hate this world and is thinking of suicide.

    But unlike all you guys, i never been through this kind of situation before. so bleh. :P

    General Commenti listened to this song the day i found out my boyfriend cheated on me..and it really fit the situation. the line "you were everything i ever hoped and dreamed" especially.

    General CommentI thinks I dont need to say what this song means, everyone else pretty much nailed it. Its a mutual feeling among many.

    General CommentThe begining of this song is fantastic, they should do a cover of this song that sounds like that the whole way through.

    General CommentI got into bleeding through because of a friend that basically lived for this kind of music. During that time I was exactly feeling like this song. I didnt want to go on any more and I wanted her dead so much because of the pain she caused me and the fact she didnt care about it at all. It was the hardest thing to deal with. And listening to Bleeding Through just made the feelings really worse and made me a colder person. Im not dissing them, its just that misery loves company and self-pitty. It took me 2 years to recover from the pain to the extent that I wasnt always trying to ease my pain. But healing is out there, its just not found in music like Bleeding Through. It is only found in God, and thanks to Him, i've been able to stop cutting, closing myself up from the world, feeling numb to everyone around me. Im happy and filled with joy and a peace that cant be explained, but songs like these never helped me.

    General CommentI thought this website is for finding out the meaning of songs. Not bitching & complaining about past relationships.
