Ever since this began, I was blessed with a curse.
And for better or for worse I was born into a hearse.
I know I said my heart beats for you. I was lying girl, it beats for two.
Because I got your love and I got these vices.

Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.

Ever since this began, I was blessed with a curse.
And for better or for worse I was born into a hearse.
I know I said my heart beats for you. I was lying girl.
I've been lying to you...

Everything I touch turns to stone (turns to stone).
So wrap your arms around me, and leave me on my own.
Everything I touch turns to stone (turns to stone).
So wrap your arms around me, and leave me on my own.

Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said.

Because everything I touch turns to stone (turns to stone).
So wrap your arms around me, and leave me, I can't hold on.

Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said, every word I've said.
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.

    This is not about anybody cheating. If you listen to the other songs on the album, they're about drugs. This song is Oliver expressing how he is torn between his love and drugs. "I know I said my heart beats for you. I was lying girl, it beats for two. Cause I've got your love, and I've got these voices."

    The guy made a mistake, lied to the girl etc
    but hes saying that its because hes always been like this. "every word i've said, ever said to you"
    and
    "born into a hearse" - (hes been like this since he was born)
    both show this.

    The words "everything i touch turns to stone" indicate that he ruins everything. "leave me, i cant hold on" kind of gives a sense of 'save yourself its too late for me'

    I think this song is about someone who needs help or comfort, but if anybody else gets involved, they'll just end up getting hurt :/

    This song is amazing. One of the best bring me the horizon have done so far. I like it sound. I also love "it never ends" and "don't go". Bring me the horizon have gotten softer but there still bring me the horizon. The sound good no matter what. I also love there old sound like "pray for plagues" bmth!

    It's about two and half years ago when someone asked me to accompany him on the stage while he was reading the poetry, but he forgot what to say then asked me to turn back to my seat and it successfully ashamed me. But about ten minutes ago he just told me that actually he didn't read his own poetry, but this lyric instead! Craps!
