Can you feel your heartbeat racing?
Can you taste the fear in her sweat?
You've done this wrong
It's too far gone
These sheets tell of regret
I admit that I'm just a fool for you
I am just a fool for you

Here is where we both go wrong
Tonight's your last chance to
Do exactly what you want to
And this could be my night
This is what makes me feel alive
Makes you feel alive
Here is where we both go wrong
So tie me up
And toss this key
Cause for now we're living in this moment
And we both ignore the truth
It's all over
It's all over

I feel your heart against mine
So take a breath and close your eyes eyes

(Chorus)
Your lungs have failed and they both stopped breathing
My heart is dead, it's way past beating
Something has gone terribly wrong
I'm scared, you're scared, we're scared of this
I never thought we'd make it out alive
I never told you but it's all in your goodbyes
It's all in your goodbyes

Well look who's dying now
Slit wrists for sleeping with the girl next door
I always knew you were such a sucker for that
It doesn't matter what you say
You never mattered anyway
Never mattered anyway

In this moment that we both ignore the truth
It's all over
It's all over
I feel your heart against mine
So take a breath and close your eyes

(Chorus)

Don't shake, I hate to see you tremble
Trembling you've lost your touch
Haven't you run
So Addicted
So Addicted

    there is always a lot of debate over the meaning of this song.

    i think its about a couple who are having pre-maritalsex and they feel bad about it but hes addicted to the physical aspect of their relationship now and hes so in love with her. "Dont shake, I hate to see you tremble" might be the girl "shaking" in fear becuase of the possible consequences of thier actions.

    but the magic in music is that it can be interpreted in different ways. (especially if its a good song)

    Over all, this song is amazing!!

    its a good song. the meaning is that 2 people who have pre-marrage sex and the girl got pregant and now there both scared, "Cause for now we're livingin this moment. and we both ignore the truth"
    and the man/boy got addicted to the physical moment of sex, "don't shake, i hate to see you tremble. Tremble you've lost your touch haven't you run so addictied"

    Sorry for the spelling errors

    I think the song is about premarital sex. And they both were just acting out in the moment, not thinking of the sin they were committing. But in the end, it got to them , and they felt the guilt and regrt.

    @blood red24 When you speak/type like this it just makes you sound stupid. As far as meaning goes your way off.
