My Chemical Romance – Famous Last Words lyrics

Now I know,
That I can't make you stay.
But where's your heart?
But where's your heart?
But where's your,

And I know.
There's nothing I can say.
To change that part.
To change that part.
To change.

So many,
Bright lights they cast a shadow,
But can I speak?
Well is it hard understanding
I'm incomplete?
A life that's so demanding,
I get so weak.
A love that's so demanding,
I can't speak.

I am not afraid to keep on living,
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay I'll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home.

Can you see
My eyes are shining bright?
'Cause I'm out here, on the other side,
Of a jet black hotel mirror,
And I'm so weak.
Is it hard understanding
I'm incomplete?
A love that's so demanding,
I get weak.

I am not afraid to keep on living,
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay I'll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home.

I am not afraid to keep on living,
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay I'll be forgiven;
Nothing you can say can stop me going home.

"These bright lights have always blinded me," said he.
These bright lights have always blinded me.

I say

I see you lying next to me,
With words I thought I'd never speak
Awake and unafraid,
Asleep or dead.

'Cause I see you lying next to me,
(How can I see, I see you lyin')
With words I thought I'd never speak
(How can I see, I see you lyin')
Awake and unafraid,
(How can I see, I see you lyin')
Asleep or dead.

'Cause I see you lying next to me,
With words I thought I'd never speak
Awake and unafraid,
Asleep or dead.

'Cause I see you lying next to me,
With words I thought I'd never speak
Awake and unafraid,
Asleep, or dead.

I am not afraid to keep on living,
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
(Or dead)
Honey, if you stay I'll be forgiven;
Nothing you can say can stop me going home
(Or Dead)

I am not afraid to keep on living,
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
(Or dead)
Honey, if you stay I'll be forgiven;
Nothing you can say can stop me going home.

    Okay the true meaning of this song goes with the actual story that the Black Parade tells in Welcome To The Black Parade the patient figures out he is dead thus he ends up in the parade alright? Okay so this song Famous Last Words explains that the patient gets a second chance at life and he isn't afraid to keep on living and walk this world alone. How do I know this? Well look at my account name I watch mcr interviews by the bundle they are my favorite band and Gerard is my one and true idol I want to be like him in more w*ys than one I refuse to type the amazing "w" word that is his and his brother's last name. They are my inspiration and helped me through a lot of s*t that I went through in my life.

    Ok well. Like, its confusing but. Ok well, its like, I think. That if no one was with you and the one you loved left and you were really pissed and sad and depressed and they were happy and living it up and shiting on you and winin, you could still live. It happened to me with this one guy. B*h that guy. People don't care. I think its easier to be depressed than be happy and then break down all at once because of some a* hole jerk!
    Thanks for reading. Check out my others on some three days grace and seether "fake it" and other stuff ok bye.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure it's the one he loved telling him that she will survive, and carry on his memory. I think if you look at the album as a whole, and as a story where he is dying, he dies in Disenchanted (when it gets quieter and quieter, at the end of the song). Then this follows and this is the girl speaking. My friend and I (yes we may be losers), we spent hours going over this album, and that's what we concluded.

    My Chemical Romance are 1 of the best bands in the world they are NOT A EMO band so in the black parade the patient is in hospital dying and he ends up dead and goneing the black parade and this song shows he gets a second chance in life and is not going to walk the world alone and no one will make him go her so basically there trying to tell you that no matter what don't let anyone stop you.

    Idk if anyone has said this but to lazy to read all comments. It sounds like he is saying from his point of view that life does have a meaning. But at the same time of course. Sounds as if the person he loves leaves him or even if the person doesn't leave him he doesn't care either way. Because he will go on living life the way he has been. At the same time he could just want acceptance from someone. Someone to be there for him even though he isn't. He is hurt inside but he knows he has to be strong so he is not afraid to keep on living or walk the world alone. At the same time that might just be a different way of saying in a sarcastic tone which I doubt. That he is hurt and the things that are happening are really hurting him so he is doubting himself about what he should do. But he still see the good that can still happen.
    If that makes sense. That is what I think. Correct me if you think other wise xd.
