"I'm here for you" she said
And we can stay for a while
My boyfriend's gone
We can just pretend
Lips that need no introduction
Now who's the greater sin
Your drab eyes sem to invite
(Now tell me darling)
Where do we begin?

Was this over before
Before it ever began?
Your kiss, your calls, your crutch
Like the devil's got your hands
This was over before
Before it ever began
Your lips, your lies, your lust
Like the devil's in your hands

Everyone in this town
Is seeing somebody else
Everybody's tired of someone
Our eyes wander for help
Prayers that need no answer now
I'm tired of who I am
You were my greatest mistake
I fell in love with your sin
Your littlest sin

Was this over before
Before it ever began?
Your kiss, your calls, your crutch
Like the devil's got your hands
This was over before
Before it ever began
Your lips, your lies, your lust
Like the devil's in your hands

Failure is your disease
You want my outline drawn
You are my greatest failure
Discourse your saving song

Was this over before
Before it ever began?
Your kiss, your calls, your crutch
Like the devil's got your hands
This was over before
Before it ever began
Your lips, your lies, your lust
Like the devil's in your hands

Was this over before
Before it ever began?
Your kiss, your calls, your crutch
Like the devil's got your hands
This was over before
Before it ever began
Your lips, your lies, your lust
Like the devil's in your hands

    Lmao. I had to get an account here, just to tell you guys who are all trying to figure out the meanings behind these songs that they're probably aren't any real meaningful deep lyrics that you guys are thinking. Like the one about "True Purity and False Passion," they're guys from a band that are just thinking about making a hit, though this song is amazing, and acoustic is my absolute favorite! I think I've finally figured it out, there aren't any meanings behind the songs. Only exactly what is said in them. =))

    What I'm getting from this song is that he's either in a relationship with this female who's cheating on her boyfriend, or he's contemplating being in a relationship with her. It sounds like he realizes how bad of an idea it'd be to get involved with her and her sins, but then he refers to how everyone else in that town is messing around. Can't deny that the song has a pretty rockin' sound.
