I guess I could have sent a letter from the road,
With words that always meant more than updates on the phone.
The signal is fading fast and the ink is running out,
The words look good in pen, but sound better from my mouth.

Please hold me tightly, I don't care if I can breathe tonight,
Forget these lungs, their jealousy.
I'm burning out, but I can't leave this all behind, leave this all behind (leave this all behind).
Forget these lungs, their jealousy.
I'm burning out, but I can't leave this all behind, leave this all behind (leave... this... all... behind).

Behind your back, talking like knives and I can hardly breathe
Sharpen your tongue the rest of your life, like I cannot believe
Anything that you say...

Please hold me tightly, I don't care if I can breathe tonight,
Forget these lungs, their jealousy.
I'm burning out, but I can't leave this all behind, leave this all behind (leave this all behind).
Forget these lungs, their jealousy.
I'm burning out, but I can't leave this all behind, leave this all behind (leave... this... all... behind).

So you're the fire and I'm the water,
I am the balance and you are the color.
I won't forget you when were not together,
This is the ending, heres my surrender.

-Screamed-
So you're the fire and I'm the water,
I am the balance and you are the color.
I won't forget you when were not together,
This is the ending, heres my surrender.

Please hold me tightly, I don't care if I can breathe tonight,
Forget these lungs, their jealousy.
I'm burning out, but I can't leave this all behind, leave this all behind (leave this all behind).
Forget these lungs, their jealousy.
I'm burning out, but I can't leave.

    I love this band! I think the title says that the person doesn't want to hear what everyone else is saying. And the lyrics are about how, like, these people are together even though the world doesn't approve, but they really don't mind. That's so cool!

    They're trying to make everyone else approve of them. Only they're not budging, and the intensity of their critisism is killing them from the inside out.
