Revenge
xxxtentacion Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I think I, I think I finally
Found a way to forgive myself
From mistakes I made in the past
I think that's the first step, right?
You agree?

I've dug two graves for us, my dear
Can't pretend that I was perfect, leavin' you in fear
Oh man, what a world, the things I hear
If I could act on my revenge, no, would I?
Some kill, some steal, some break your heart
And you thought that I would let it go and let you walk
Well, broken hearts break bones, so break up fast
And I don't wanna let it go, so in my grave, I'll rot
I've dug two graves for us, my dear
Can't pretend that I was perfect, leavin' you in fear
Oh man, what a world, the things I hear
If I could act on my revenge, no, would I?
Some kill, some steal, some break your heart
And you thought that I would let go and let you walk
Broken hearts break bones, so break up fast
And I don't wanna let it go, so in my grave, I'll rot

In the grave, I'll rot
In the grave, I'll rot
In the grave, I'll rot
In the grave, I'll rot
In the grave, I'll rot
In the grave, I'll rot
In the grave, I'll rot
(Is my pain your freedom?) I'll rot, I'll rot, I'll rot
Is all of my pain your freedom?
Enjoy
