Hold your breath quiet now don't say a word
You could run (but) it wont do any good
Prayers forsaken when you lose faith inside
It's not time to die

Your life
Is a lie
When you get what your looking for
Your cravings subside
Or will you crawl into
A casket
An early tomb
Lay down, give up inside
She'd rather die

When you fall
So spent from emotion
She is the one
Who brings you to your feet
Where challenges lie
On the brink of destruction
She pulls you back
And she gives you wings
(Death wont hold you as tight as she will)

Can you feel her
Running through your veins
She will always live forever
(Can you bear the burden?)

Can you feel her
Running through your veins
She will always live forever
(Can you bear the burden?)

You'll turn your back, you'll patronize
She's bleeding
You will question your every want
She's bleeding out
She's bleeding out
She's bleeding out

Death won't hold you as tight as she will

Can you feel her running through your veins
She will always live forever
(Can you bear the burden?)
Can you feel her running through your veins
She will always live forever

[Guitar Solo]

She's bleeding out
She's bleeding out
She's bleeding out

[Heart beat gradually slows]

Death won't hold you as tight as she will

Can you feel her running through your veins
She will always live forever
(Can you bear the burden?)
Can you feel her running through your veins
She will always live forever
(Can you bear the burden?)

Can you feel her running through your veins
She will always live forever

    It's kind of like a vampire/love song. It's on the Underworld Evolution soundtrack which supports that. But from what I can gather, he's is depending on her to keep him alive. By supplying him with blood. This is supported by the line 'your craves subside'. A vampire craves for blood and if they can't get it. They die. So I'm guessing he depended on her for the blood. And in turn she's become so attracted to him that she'd endlessly supply him with blood. This is supported by the lines "she'd rather die and can you feel her running through your veins". It's a pretty hard meaning to try and explain. But that's what I could get out of it. =D

    Yeaa i agree with Pigeon..
    i think "can you bear the burden" is contreversial, as it could be interpreted as being said to the women, e.g, can you bear the burden of him taking your blood etc.. Or to the vampire, can he bear the burden of hurting his love.
    and maybe she has become a vampire, i dunno, but the line "she will always live forever" suggest she is a think...
    I think he also wants to go, not to take her blood etc, but she loves him, ad deep down he knows if he goes he'll be hurting her more. "You'll turn your back, you'll patronize She's pleading"
    Iss hard to explain like =P no harm in tryin thoo xD

    I thought it was 'burning through your veins' instead of 'running through your veins'. Well, i do have bad hearing so i could be wrong. :/

    well...

    Well what i get from that is hes about to quit feeding from her but she would rather die than let him give up completely and just die..And hes sucking her blood and her blood will forever be in him which will make her live forever. If he sucks her blood it could kill her, and could he bear the burden of killing somoene he loves/ that loves him. She really wants to be with him and to make him happy but he doesnt want to kill her. Death wont hold him as tight as she will. (:
    sorry if thats wrong its just what i got from it (:
