"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 InterpretationThis is about Hannah Sykes, Oli's wife (girlfriend at the time this song was made).

    There's a girl singing in the background, and that's Hannah. I really think it's a beautiful song about their devotion. They obviously do not hate each other -- they've been together for years and married in the summer of 2015 -- but the morbid words is just their style.

    "On my deathbed/all I'll see is you" Know the wedding vow, 'until death do us part?' it's like that -- they will be by each other's side, physically or mentally, upon their deaths.

    "Don't try to fight the storm/you'll tumble overboard/tides will bring me back to you" Hannah and Oli will always, every time, end up back with each other. No matter the distance, no matter the fights they endure, they are soulmates and meant to be together. Fate, the universe, whatever, will reunite them.

    Their words, not mine. Fun fact: Oli and Hannah have "soulmates" tattooed on the inside of their fingers. When their hands are intertwined and facing up, it spells out the word "soulmates"
