Of Mice & Men – Let Live lyrics

[Intro]
I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.

[Verse 1]
Here's a story, just bare with me,
Met a drug that changed my life.
Something like a classic movie,
Just one look, all stopped with time.
Let her in through these very veins,
Coursing through these tired bones.
Numb my body, healed my heart,
Soothes my mind, and eased my soul.

[Pre-Chorus]
These are the memories between us,
Let it go, and let live again.

[Chorus:]
I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.
I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.

[Verse 2]
You let me live, believing all your life.
You let me live your lie, live your lie!

You let me believe, and live you lie.

Guess I should have seen this coming,
Should have known it all along.
You're a fake, see clear right through you,
Left me dying, it's all your fault.

[Pre-Chorus]
These are the memories between us,
Let it go, and let live again.

[Chorus:]
I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.
I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.

[Hook]
I gave you everything (everything!),
And you just throw away (throw away).
Know what I deserve, know that I should let,
Let you go (go, go, go).

Let you go!

[Bridge]
This is me, letting you go...

[Chorus:]
I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.
I was all for you, you fell over my love,
Now I'm left with thoughts of
Suicide...

[Outro]
Let you go, you're killing me.

    The song [expresses] that someone was lying the entire time this supposed mutual feeling was shared. The words "know what i deserve, know that i should let you go, this is me, letting you go" really mean everything at this point. As the song slows down, shay and I wanted to make it feel like you were literally letting [go of] this heartbreak [and] this memory. You care about someone so much, and they do something to completely and blatantly hurt you, [so] you have to move on and do something for yourself.

    I'm honestly still stuck between it either being about drugs or about his ex-wife. At first I thought it was about a drug addictions as he says "met a drug that changed my life" and "let her in through these very veins", but this would lead to me thinking it's about heroin, and if austin wrote this song then I think it's very doubtful that someone who had never tried marijuana until only recently would be addicted to cocaine. Unregistered on jan 3rd 2012 makes a very good point about the ex-wife and I lean more towards their theory as on the album let live is right before and syncs in perfectly with still ydg'n which I know for certain is about his ex-wife cheating on him. So yeah, I guess unless there's an interview of him talking about this song then it's for you to decide which message he's trying to give here.

    Fits the break up with my ex very well. I gave her all I could, and she threw all my love away and didn't talk to me for months. I was left with suicidal thoughts, and the feeling of hopelessness. Anyway, the song to me starts with two people falling in love, and giving the boy (i guess this would be austin carlile) the true meaning of happiness. All he has to remember her is their memories. He then makes himself think, or this may be true she never actually cared in the first place, and he lived in her lie of her love for him. He tried to give her everything, and she wouldn't care, and she'd take it for granted, and he then ended things with her for good, but still remained to hurt, left with nothing but suicidal thoughs. He feels as if she's slowly killing him inside.

    This beatifull song is about letting go. When you meat that one person that means everything to you and they just lie to you and they just destroy everything and you love that person so much but they done this to you many times and you just can't afford to forgive them anymore so you're letting go, and at the end of the song when it starts getting slow, they wanted to make it seem like you truly are letting go. And let live agian! Btw Austin said this I'm just posting it here in my own words.

    This song was about how Austin Carlile-the singer and screamer for Of Mice Men- had a very hard time with his drug addiction and had left him nothing in the end. I think it's partly about love and it lead to heart brake so that lead to drug use. " let it go and let live again " he saying let go of the drug and let him live again. I do not know what drug it is but I think it's heroin. And like everyone else is saying it is so yes.
