(But only for you)
(Only for you)

They said, "If you don't let it out,
You're gonna let it eat you away."
I'd rather be a cannibal, baby
Animals like me don't talk anyway.

Feel like an ambulance,
Chaser of faith.
Pray I could replace
Or forget the way her tears taste.
Oh, the way her tears taste!

Put another "X" on the calendar,
Summer's on it's deathbed.
There is simply nothing worse than knowing how it ends.
And I meant everything I said that night;
I will come back to life.
But only for you,
Only for you.

The world may call it a second chance,
But when I came back, it was more of a relapse.
Anticipation's on the other line,
And obsession called while you were out.
Yeah, it called while you were out.

Put another "X" on the calendar,
Summer's on it's deathbed.
There is simply nothing worse than knowing how it ends.
And I meant everything I said that night.
I will come back to life.
But only for you,
Only for you.

Asleep in the hive,
I guess all the buzzing got to me.
But I'm still alive,
And at night your body is a symphony,
And I'm conducting...

They said, "If you don't let it out,
You're gonna let it eat you away."

Put another "X" on the calendar,
Summer's on it's deathbed.
There is simply nothing worse than knowing how it ends.
And I meant everything I said that night;
I will come back to life,
But only for you...
Only for you
Only for you
Only for you

Yeah
(But only for you)
(Only for you)
(Only for you)
(Only for you)

    I think the calender is about patd before the split and how brendon didn't want them to split but they had to because of musical differances and sort of reffering to when the day met the night which i think was written by ryan which is about two people falling in love in the summer and says "or leave me all alone in the summer" and in the calender it says "put another ex on the calender summers on its deathbed" which means that summer is dead and might be about the split saying that summer is dead because of it

    Thid dong id about the split of the band but also of ryan. It is rumored that the relationship of brendon urie (lead-singer) and ryan ross (lead guitarist) was at the strongest point in the summer. So maybe he is saying the relationship is not going so good. I believe with a lot of evidence you could say this is about in fact ryan

    I think it is something like this:

    Probably, at some time, he had some relationship going on but it wasn't going very well for him, he thinks he could try to replce but then again, he thinks more and more about her and, well... You don't know what you have until you lost it...

    Supernatural feels! Honestly though, most supernatural relating song since carry on wayward son. Even aside from the most obvious 'i will come back to life' everything relates. Love this song.
