(Verse 1)
Take me I'm alive
Never was a girl with a wicked mind
But everything was better when sun goes down

(Bridge + chorus)
I had everything
Opportunities for eternity
And I could belong to the night
Your eyes, your eyes
I can see in your eyes
Your eyes

You make me wanna die
I'll never be good enough
You make me wanna die
And everything you love will burn up in the light
Every time I look inside your eyes
Make me wanna die

(Verse 2)
Taste me, drink my soul
Show me all the things that I shouldn't know
And there's a new moon on the rise

(Bridge + chorus)
I had everything
Opportunities for eternity
And I could belong to the night
Your eyes, your eyes
I can see in your eyes
Your eyes everything in your eyes, your eyes

You make me wanna die
I'll never be good enough
You make me wanna die
And everything you love will burn up in the light
Every time I look inside your eyes (burning in the light)
Make me wanna die

I'll die for you my love, my love
I'll lie for you my love, my love (make me wanna die)
I'll steal for you, my love, my love (make me wanna die)
I'll die for you my love, my love
Well burn up in the light

(Chorus)
Every time I look inside your eyes
I'm burning in the light
Every time I look inside your eyes
I'm burning in the light
Make me wanna die

    Love this song! It's about (I think) loving somebody, but feeling that they don't deserve you, hence 'I'll never be good enough', and elaborates on the feeling of inadequecy felt by many guys when dating a really popular girl, or vice versa.
    Keep on living guys.

    I think this song is about loving somebody, but not wanting to love them. Also, maybe not being loved back and frustration etc and the song has a darkness to it...love it! :) xxx

    I think this song is more about taylor momsen herself. She had the opportunity to be a famous actress (oportunities for eternity, meaning she could be immortalized by starring in television shows/movies), but she chose the life of being a singer instead. Of course there are other parts with more meanings too. However i think she is an amazing singer! Truly one of the best female singers i've heard in a long time.

    Love the rhythm of the song... Heard it in the victoria's secret fashion show 2011... This song is really sad, i thnk, coz' she'll do everything in the name of love(in the lyrics i'll die for you, i'll lie for you and steal for you)... Life makes love work hard,

    This song ROX! I think it means that she loves someone and she wants to live an eternity to be with him, but looking into his eyes make her want to die because she's supposingly not good enough for him. Looking into the spark in his eyes, she feels like burning because the reason for that spark is not her, when she wants it to be. This song rocks because the feeling that were sent through the song were kind of heart-breaking but they added some vampiric theme to it... If 'vampiric' is even a word!
    Have a good life!!!
