Black Veil Brides – The Mortician's Daughter lyrics

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.


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.

    The song really means that if you have enough faith, love can conquer miles of space and days of time. As long as the love is tru it will work out. And no matter how long you are apart. When you come back everything will be the same if not better. The song has so much meaning. It is so beautiful and it really speaks to people especially people in long distance relationships. Thank you black veil brides. You are the only reason I am in the relationship I have been in for two years. The morticians daughter gave me home with my relationship and he and I are very happy together. Agin, bvb I thank you. I wish I could tell you in person how much this song means. It is beautiful and inspirational and amazing. I love it and I love all of you.

    Okay, so I hate the idea of the whole boy meet girl stuff in songs, but this song is epic. Whoever the song is about is lucky to have somebody care so much for them. But while on the subject, I'll rant about Andy Six. I love the guy; he's an absolute legend and a really nice guy. But the band is called 'Black Veil Brides' not 'Andy Six and his little helpers'. Andy Six is just a guy. Albeit a lucky guy because of his looks and his talent, but still a guy. He is not the main focus of the band. I actually started liking this band after seeing one of Jake Pitt's videos on YouTube, not because of Andy. So yeah, bvb rocks.

    I guess I can admit, I do obsess over andy but that's because hes everything I would look for in a guy. But that doesn't mean I don't care about the music and the other band members cuz that means alot to me. Andy's lyrics have got me through alot of s*t like his song Never Give in. Its like my life quote now :) I'm always in love with the lyrics of most bands. Oh and back to the song, I love the line "I love you more than i can ever scream" its so beautiful Black Veil Brides forever!

    I think this song is about a boy that loved a girl very much but she died. And how he's singing about how he's loved and lost her. Saying he sings 'this song' at funerals makes sense for that part. And then he says 'You said you loved as you left me, Regrets still haunt your saddened head but I promised I will see you again'. Meaning that when he dies too, he'll see her again. And with the last line 'I'm home again' I think he finally does die. But that's just my take on it; it could mean something different entirely. But either way, it's a very beautiful song and it's amazing how you can just hear the emotion pouring from Andy's voice. Love the bvbs. Wanna see them live sooo bad :)

    She will never listen this song with me in my arms n she will never be sorry to make me sad but I don't care I will try to forget her but how? I don't know, with this song I find myself, love is so painfull n I didn't deserve that, I just luved her so much than myself n she played with me. She has never said I love you n now I'm listening this song n dreaming you n me, I am still luving you mary n can't forget you.
