I open my lungs dear,
I sing this song at funerals, no rush.
These lyrics heard a thousand times, just plush.
A baby boy you've held so tightly, this pain it visits almost nightly.
Missing hotel beds, I feel your touch.

I will await dear,
A patience of eternity, my crush.
A universal still, no rust.
No dust will ever grow on this frame,
One million years and I will say your name.
I love you more than I can ever scream.

We booked our flight those years ago,
I said I love you as I left you.
Regrets still haunt my hollow head,
I promised you that I will see you again.

Again.
Again.

I sit here and smile dear.
I smile because I think of you and I blush.
These bleeding hollow dials, this fuss.
A fuss is made of miles and travels when roadways are but stones and gravel.
A bleeding heart can conquer every grudge.

We booked our flight those years ago,
You said you loved me as you left me.
Regrets still haunt your saddened head but I promised you that I will see you.

We booked our flight those years ago,
I said I loved you as I left you.
Regrets no longer in my head,
But I promised you and now I'm home again, again, again
I'm home again,
again, again.
I am home again.

    I'm so shy when it comes to singing around people, but I found out how much I truly loved my girlfriend when I started singing this song with no problems... First time she's ever heard me sing, too.

    Did this song make anyone else tear up? The Mortician's Daughter is probably one of my favorite songs by Black Veil Brides. It is so beautiful, and has a lot of meaning to me. It seems that they know just what to write all of the time, not only that but to make it beautiful too. I just have to say, Black Veil Brides is amazing! I hope to see you guys n concert!!

    I Love you guys!(:
