Die for You
Black Veil Brides Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

The writing's on the wall
Your crimson touch is goin' nowhere
I'll hang on every word you said
And sink my teeth into this nightmare

Whoa oh oh oh
I'm screaming out
Whoa oh oh oh
Can you hear me?

I bleed for you
Forever I will lie awake
I would die for you

I see the truth
I've given you my heart to break
I would die for you

I feel your body crawl
Pale flesh for my devotion
True pain was all you ever meant
Love would be our last emotion

Whoa oh oh oh
I'm screaming out
Whoa oh oh oh
Can you hear me?

I bleed for you
Forever I will lie awake
I would die for you

I see the truth
I've given you my heart to break
I would die for you

With every breath I feel you there
Forbidden love is falling
Your eyes sing despair

I bleed for you
Forever I will lie awake

I see the truth
I've given you my heart to break
I would die for you

I bleed for you
Forever I will lie awake
I would die for you

I see the truth
I've given you my heart to break
I would die for you

I bleed for you
Forever I will lie awake
I would die for you

I see the truth




I've given you my heart to break
I would die for you
