"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

    idk but i really think it says "your kiss, your claws, your clutch" listen closely, plus it makes more sense.. i saw a few lyrics sights with "clutch" calls and crutch dont make sense in this song especially talking about the devil in her hands.

    I think it could be kinda the same idea as Mr. Brightside by The Killers. The girl could be a prostitute, or just a tease, that he thought loved him. He might have tried to change her to a faithful person but failed,
    "You were my biggest failure"

    To me, this song is much more than what people often to perceive it to be. The girl he's talking about is a metaphor for temptation, possibly even his past life. He isn't struggling with a girl and her boyfriend, he's caught in a battle between true purity and false passion.

    From the pov of the man with whom an unfaithful woman is having an affair: he loves her but is frustrated, angsty, and somewhat hates her for the fact that their relationship and all that he knows of her is grounded in sin and lust

    The song meaning is that you are in love with a person. But sometimes they don't truly love you and is somewhat using you. And by the time you find out it is over and the person begins to question himself.
