"Deathbeds" as written by and Lee David Malia Jordan Keith Attwood Fish....
Eyes like a car crash,
I know I shouldn't look but I can't turn away.
Body like a whiplash,
Salt my wounds but I can't heal the way I feel about you.

I watch you like a hawk.
I watch you like I'm gonna tear you limb from limb.
Will the hunger ever stop?
Can we simply starve this sin?

That little kiss you stole, it held my heart and soul.
And like a deer in the headlights I meet my fate.
Don't try to fight the storm, you'll tumble overboard.
Tides will bring me back to you.

And on my deathbed, all I'll see is you.
The life may leave my lungs,
But my heart will stay with you...

That little kiss you stole, it held my heart and soul.
And like a ghost in the silence I disappear.
Don't try to fight the storm, you'll tumble overboard.
Tides will bring me back to you.

The waves will pull us under,
Tides will bring me back to you.
The waves will pull us under,
Tides will bring me back to you.
The waves will pull us under,
Tides will bring me back to you.
Tides will bring me back to you.

That little kiss you stole, it held my heart and soul.
And like a ghost in the silence I disappear.
Don't try to fight the storm, you'll tumble overboard.
Tides will bring me back to you.

That little kiss you stole, it held my heart and soul.
And like a deer in the headlights I meet my fate.
Don't try to fight the storm, you'll tumble overboard.
Tides will bring me back to you...

    My InterpretationI feel like this song is about being in love with someone that you don't necessarily want to be in love with. 'I watch you like I'm gonna tear you limb from limb' sounds like he isn't particularly happy while seeing her. 'Don't try to fight the storm. You'll tumble overboard. Tides will bring me back to you' seems like even when he tries to get away he can't. Most of the lyrics evoke a feeling of not being able to control his feelings but they're a bit morbid and sung as if he's weak and resentful.
