Bullet for My Valentine Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I scream into your face
I scream into your face until
My veins are bursting through
Prisoners now live with no excuse
Its goes
I won't leave I can take control
Control
But it won't stop cause I have no control
I have no control

It comes down, don't take my name
Its holds it holds
It holds me down

I stared into your eyes
I stared into your eyes until
The tears start to fall
With a sound to which can't ignore
Its goes
I won't leave I can take control
Control
But it won't stop cause I have no control
I have no control

It comes down, don't take my name
Its holds it holds
It holds me down
It comes down, don't take my name
Its holds it hold me down

You see your way its the only way to be
You see your way its the only way to be
The only way to be!

It comes down, don't take my name
Its holds it hold me down
It comes down, don't take my name
Its holds it hold me down

I have no control




I have no control
Oh!
