I breathe you in with smoke
In the backyard lights
(Backyard lights)
We used to laugh until we choked
Into the wasted nights
(Wasted nights)
It was the best time of my life
But now I sleep alone
(Sleep alone)
So don't, don't, don't wake me up
'Cause my thrill is gone
(Say I'm wrong)
In the sunset turning red behind the smoke
Forever and alone
Yeah

You've gone and sewn me to this bed
The taste of you and me
(You and me)
Will never leave my lips again,
Under the blinding rain
(Blinding rain)
I wanna hold your hand so tight
I'm gonna break my wrist
(Break my wrist)
And when the vultures sing tonight
I'm gonna join right in

I'll sing along
'Cause I don't know any other song
I'll sing along, but I'm barely hanging on
No, I'm barely hanging on
By the time you're hearing this I'll already be gone
And now there's nothing to do but scream at the drunken moon

This isn't fair, no
Don't you try to blame this on me
My love for you was bulletproof
But you're the one who shot me

And goddamn it, I can barely say your name
So I'll try to write it
And fill the pen with blood from the sink

But, don't just say it, you should sing my name
Pretend that it's a song 'cause forever it's yours
And we can sing this on the way home

I'll sing along
'Cause I don't know any other song
I'll sing along, but I'm barely hanging on
No, I'm barely hanging on
By the time you're hearing this I'll already be gone
And there's nothing to do
But tear my voice apart
Nothing to do and scream at the drunken moon

    Has anyone read what Vic said? I find it truly poetic. He said "I've always been obsessed with happy songs that have morbid lyrics. Lyrically, this song is the darkest I've ever written. It's about being obsessed with someone to the point where you're hurting yourself. A lot of it is written almost like a suicide note meant to be found by the one you love. It's completely crazy and extreme, but it's also comforting to say out loud the things you're thinking sometimes."

    This song to me about a girl that he would die for he loved her so much he would do anything for her. Then she cheats on him and tries him away like he is nothing to her. He is being driven crazy he sees he everywhere he goes. He just can't stop thinking about her. He is driven and feels like committing suicide.
    This song has great meaning to me and is a sad song but that is the point.

    So, first I'll explain the meaning of this song, by my standards. Bulletproof love is an amazing song. Perhaps it's a very sad song, but that's the point of it.
    So this guy fell in love, and he'd do anything for this girl. He'd even die for her. He told her personal stuff. He did stuff with her. But this guy didn't consider the 'love of his life' was a fake. So, soon later, this girl turns on the man. He is heartbroken.

    Take the message of this song, and any song, for that matter, and use it for your life and relationships.

    This song always makes me think of my exes and how much I loved them but they just threw me away like I was nothing to them. You thought that they were the ones who were always going to protect you but they are the ones who tried to hurt you and you are too in love to break away from them and still love them with all your heart even if they tried to break you down. You miss having that feeling you had with that person and never want to let go of those memories. It's a part of you. They meant everything to you but the love you had for them was bulletproof. No one could damage the love. You are too blinded to see the reality that was really there and just wanted a happy ending with their love and them in your arms. Your heart has scrapes and cuts from them but you do not realize it. Your world revolved around them and it just hurts to let go of those feelings. Your heart will never be fixed completely but It's blind love. You can't control it. It's an overwhelming feeling altogether. You just wanna scream and wish it was all just a dream.

    Bulletproof love is when you're hopelessly in love. When you want to believe someone is there for you, and loves you, but you're merely another person to them. They're you're number one priority, but to them you're nothing. You finally come to realize, they're supposed to be the on caring about you and protecting you from pain, but they're the one hurting you.
