I was raised in the valley, there was shadows and death.
Got out alive but with scars I can't forget.
This kid back in school, subdued and shy.
An orphan and a brother and unseen by most eyes.

I don't know what it was that made a piece of him die,
Took a boy to the forest, slaughtered him with a scythe.
Stamped on his face, an impression in the dirt.
Do you think the silence makes a good man convert?

We all have our horrors and our demons to fight.
But how can I win, when I'm paralyzed
?
They crawl up on my bed, wrap their fingers round my throat.
Is this what I get for the choices that I made?
God forgive me, for all my sins. God forgive me, for everything.
God forgive me, for all my sins. God forgive me, God forgive me.

Don't go, I can't do this on my own.
Don't go, I can't do this on my own.
Save me from the ones that haunt me in the night.
I can't live with myself, so stay with me tonight.
Don't go.
Don't go.

[Lights:]
If I let you in, you'd just want out.
If I tell you the truth, you'd fight for a lie.
If I spilt my guts, it would make a mess we can't clean up.
If you follow me, you will only get lost.
If you try to get closer, we'll only lose touch.
Yes you already know too much, and you're not going anywhere.

Tell me that you need me 'cause I love you so much.
Tell me that you love me 'cause I need you so much.
Tell me that you need me 'cause I love you so much.
Say you'll never leave me 'cause I need you so much.

Don't go, I can't do this on my own.
Don't go, I can't do this on my own.
Save me from the ones that haunt me in the night.
I can't live with myself, so stay with me tonight.
Don't go, I can't do this on my own.
Don't go.
Save me from the ones that haunt me in the night.
I can't live with myself, so stay with me tonight.
Don't go.

[Lights:]
Don't go. [x11]

    Honestly, It is my Favorite song, but most friends hate it because you can't understand the lyrics, true sort of unless you adapt to the style (as I have done so) and honestly you couldn't say these lyrics any better without screaming them but its not like non-sense screaming it sounds like a sad soul, screaming for help, there's emotion and depth to it that just has reached a level I have never felt in a metal song, If you know a song that fits my description by all means tell me the name.

    I think the guy telling the story has grown up in a place where he feels as though no one cares and that they are all agianst him. He feels alone. He has scars from moments in his life he can't erase, no matter how bady he wishes to do so. He is apparently depressed and front what the girl in the song to leave him. He loves her and wants her to love him because he needs her there ~_~ and so he is crying out don't go.

    This song is the first Bring Me The Horizon song I ever heard. I'm in love with this song, when I first heard it I couldn't stop listening to it. The lyrics are so heartbreaking. This is my favorite song and it always will be, (: I love Bring Me The Horizon, and not just because Oli Sykes is hot hahaha.

    My interpretation of the song is that he grew up where no one understood him so he felt like he was unloved even by family so he started self harming "got out alive but with scars I can't forget" he believes he can't do anything he believes there is demons around him holding him back "we all have our horrors and demons to fight but how can I win when I'm paralyzed they crawl up on my bed wrap their fingers around my throat" until finally he finds someone who finally understands and he never wants them to leave he needs them in his life to make him feel like he really belongs in this world he ends up falling in live with them "tell me that you love me because I need you so much say you'll never leave because I love you so much."

    This song is so amazing I can sing it all It's the first song I ever could it has a lot of meaning in my life the first is where it says he grew up in a valley with shadows and death and me I grew up in a horrible neighborhood and there was a lot of death and gangs and the second verse I have a lot of stuff that's holding me back and I have found god recently and I'm still asking forgiveness for not believing him for so long and being a bad person then the main part there's this one person in my life I can't live without if I lost her I wouldn't be able to actually live just survive and I feel lost every time she's gone and the lights is kinda how I feel what would happen and did happen when she started caring for me and learning about me and then the fifth verse It's exactly how I feel about her and there's what the song means to me I connect very deeply with it and it has set off a lot of triggers but It's just amazing still but it dose have a downside of making me want to self harm every time I hear it.
