What was the question? I’ve been lost in flames too long.
“Would I still love you even if the fire were gone?”
Repeat the question, as I crawl into the sun.
I know I love you. It’s the worst thing I have done well.

I’ve been chasing flames that repeat my name.
Though I’m bowed by pain I can’t deny it.

If you want the truth, yes, I still love you.
it’s the worst thing I could ever do
but I’m helpless and I’m freezing and you’re teasing me by tearing down the sun over and over.

Oh this feeling will remain, you’ll be forever – only if we part can you keep my heart.
For this feeling to remain just tell me, “Never.” And the saddest part
is that you’ll keep my heart from me.

Will you hold my heart for me?

    My InterpretationTo me these lyrics are the definition of the sort of love that's as painful as it is all encompassing. It's the love that burns you through but you can't help but helplessly want it and need it, even if it may indeed be the worst thing for you in the end. This song is gutwrenchingly beautiful, and my favorite song that Davey Havok sings period!
