Death was just a simple glance across a dim lit room
And those eyes did it
Those three words did it
Those three words killed him
And I surrender to it all
Between you and me, I surrender to you
Forgive me for the sadness
And the bringing of you down
I just needed a lover and I needed a friend
And there you were
Running from forever like all the rest
Three simple words bled me dry
Three simple word bled us dry, bled us dry
I love you

    General CommentJacob turned to her, gave all he had and finally said "i love you". the big step. He thought she was someone different, someone special, but she left. She ran away from it. It scared her and killed what they had.
    Simple lyrics for converge, not as cryptic, but just as powerful. I think Jacob wrote it for this reason, because nothing is a testament to how powerful some words can be than "i love you".

    General CommentThis song is how I feel. It made me sick when i read these lyrics for the first time. I was like wow, someone just totally stated how I feel. Sigh, I still love him

    General Commentpobably my favorite converge song. jacob's screaming is so frenzied in this song. of course even when reading the lyrics while listening to the song you can't understand a fucing word, but neverless, the words are great.

    General Commentthe riff at 1'10" is really amazing.
    i don't look at it as being a simple song about love. it's about using and abusing. and being with someone, just to have someone. this wouldn't be my anthem when someone just broke my heart...

    General Commentactually this song more reminds me of my fathers death than of love. But well, every man for his
