The drugs begin to peak
A smile of joy arrives in me
But sedation changes to panic and nausea
And breath starts to shorten
And heartbeats pound softer

You won't try to save me
You just want to hurt me
And leave me desperate

You taught my heart
A sense I never knew I had
I can't forget
The times that I was lost and depressed from the awful truth
How do you do it?
You're my heroine

You won't leave me alone
Chisel my heart out of stone
I give in everytime

You taught my heart
A sense I never knew I had
I can't forget
The times that I was lost and depressed from the awful truth
How do you do it?
You're my heroine

I bet you laugh
At the thought of me thinking for myself (myself)
I bet you believe (bet you believe)
That I'm better off with you than someone else

Your face arrives again
A hope I had become surreal
But under your cover's
More torture than pleasure
And just past your lips
There's more anger than laughter
Not now or forever will I ever change you
I know that to go on I'll break you, my habit

You taught my heart
A sense I never knew I had
I can't forget
The times that I was lost and depressed from the awful truth
How do you do it?
You're my heroine

I Will Save Myself!

    @crystals21: Please refrain from comparing an epic band like Silverstein to a horrible movie/book like Twilight.

    Meaning: It's about a guy's struggle with pot. It says "heroine" because it saved him from his troubles. "I bet you laught at the thought of me thinking for myself" refers to how it affects the brain and makes you do things you normaly wouldn't. Also the first paragraph refers to the physical effects it haves on you. When it says "You won't try to save me, you just want to hurt me and leave me desperate" that's his common sense telling him that he shouldn't be doing it. Then of course the end "I will save myself" is him saying that he's going to try and become clean and break his habbit.

    The song has been a total hit to the industry even though some doesn't really know the true meaning of the song...XD i guess that people only judge the song by what they think it is...but the real true meaning of it as i know is that the guy in the song loves a girl but he is being hurt so he tries to move on using a drug that is called Heroine. When he eventually knew that he cant move on by this..he tried to refrain from his habit and is still trying his best because he doesnt want to be breaked by the drug...

    this song is great! it's also perfect for Twilight! but remove the "E" or is it really supposed to be "Heroin"?(i just realized that now:-o) "Your my exact brand of heroin"-Edward Cullen! :D

    half of the school population is addicted to this band, and I can see why...
    maybe it's about a guy who's addicted to a girl
    like a drug...
    get it?
    Heroine=Heroin(the drug)
