Verse 1
I still remember
That empty
Look left on your face.

You took the pictures
But you left the frames,
All we had written
Well it's been erased,
Something that I had to do
I cut you deep your bleeding through,
You're every single shade of blue
When staring right in front of you,

Chorus

I can hear your hear beat slowing down.
I can hear your heartbeat turn me around.
You can take my life
All you need,
Make me right
I can't sleep with your heartbeat
Slowing down.

Verse 2

Here you left scattered
Like wishes I led to your room.
I'd bury my face in your
Pillow just to smell your perfume
Outside I'm hungry but inside
I'm just consumed
Tell me how
Am I supposed to breathe?
Losing you is choking me

Chorus

I can hear your heartbeat slowing down
I can hear your heartbeat turn me around
You can take my life. all you need,
Make me right
I can't sleep with you heartbeat slowing down.

Verse 3

I fucking hate this sound
I wanna burn it down
I never felt so cold
And when I burn this sound
I hope I burn it down
And Leave me on my own

I fucking hate this sound
I wanna burn it down
I never felt so cold

I can hear your heartbeat slowing down
I can hear your heartbeat slowing down
I can hear your heartbeat turn me around
Take my life. all you need,
Make me right how can
You sleep with your heartbeat slowing down
I can hear your heartbeat slowing down

    I think the message is simple, but scattered. It's probably saying that he left someone, and it's the only thing he thinks about since then. And that losing that person is killing him inside-out.

    I felt like he broke up with someone or broke their heart.. And he kinda regrets it and its killing him too. That's just what i got from it. Really sad but good song though
