I said I'd never forget your face
Vaulted away inside my head
And memories never seem to fade
You were the best part of my life:my last regret

Now I've walked this line a thousand times before
It hurts too much to bear
FOR YOU
I'd tear out my own heart
And write our names together

Your love is the barrel of a gun
So tell me am I on the right end
I could be nothing but a memory to you
Don't let this memory fade away

And in the end we're turning on and off again
There's a look in your eye
And it's screaming goodbye
I'd hate to watch you cry

Your love is the barrel of a gun
So tell me am I on the right end
I could be nothing but a memory to you
Don't let this memory fade away

There's a look in your eye and it's screaming goodbye
Now it tears me apart just to look at the sky
And I'd hate to watch you cry
I'D HATE TO WATCH YOU CRY

Your love is the barrel of a gun
So tell me am I on the right end
I could be nothing but a memory to you
Don't let this memory fade away

    This song is about alex's older brother tom. Thomas died in his sleep. He didn't have a drinking problem, he didn't commit suicide, he just died in his sleep. He and his brother were extremely close and he and his family don't like talking about it but the still want his memory to remain.

    he's talking about how he misses someone (an old girlfriend, dead family member0, ect) and the memories can sometimes get to much, but he doesnt want them to "fade away"

    This song is about a boy knowing his girlfriend wants to break up with him, but he still loves her and he wants them to stay together.

    I love the scream. I didn't know Zach had it in him!
    :D
