Black Veil Brides – The Mortician's Daughter lyrics
I open my lungs dear,
I sing this song at funerals, no rush.
These lyrics heard a thousand times, just plush.
A baby boy you've held so tightly, this pain it visits almost nightly.
Missing hotel beds, I feel your touch.

I will await dear,
A patience of eternity, my crush.
A universal still, no rust.
No dust will ever grow on this frame,
One million years and I will say your name.
I love you more than I can ever scream
.

We booked our flight those years ago,
I said I love you as I left you.
Regrets still haunt my hollow head,
I promised you that I will see you again.

Again.
Again
.

I sit here and smile dear.
I smile because I think of you and I blush.
These bleeding hollow dials, this fuss.
A fuss is made of miles and travels when roadways are but stones and gravel.
A bleeding heart can conquer every grudge
.

We booked our flight those years ago,
You said you loved me as you left me.
Regrets still haunt your saddened head but I promised you that I will see you.

We booked our flight those years ago,
I said I loved you as I left you.
Regrets no longer in my head,
But I promised you and now I'm home again, again, again
I'm home again,
again, again.
I am home again.

    The song really means that if you have enough faith, love can conquer miles of space and days of time. As long as the love is tru it will work out. And no matter how long you are apart. When you come back everything will be the same if not better. The song has so much meaning. It is so beautiful and it really speaks to people especially people in long distance relationships. Thank you black veil brides. You are the only reason I am in the relationship I have been in for two years. The morticians daughter gave me home with my relationship and he and I are very happy together. Agin, bvb I thank you. I wish I could tell you in person how much this song means. It is beautiful and inspirational and amazing. I love it and I love all of you.

    I think this song is about a boy that loved a girl very much but she died. And how he's singing about how he's loved and lost her. Saying he sings 'this song' at funerals makes sense for that part. And then he says 'You said you loved as you left me, Regrets still haunt your saddened head but I promised I will see you again'. Meaning that when he dies too, he'll see her again. And with the last line 'I'm home again' I think he finally does die. But that's just my take on it; it could mean something different entirely. But either way, it's a very beautiful song and it's amazing how you can just hear the emotion pouring from Andy's voice. Love the bvbs. Wanna see them live sooo bad :)

    Okay, so I hate the idea of the whole boy meet girl stuff in songs, but this song is epic. Whoever the song is about is lucky to have somebody care so much for them. But while on the subject, I'll rant about Andy Six. I love the guy; he's an absolute legend and a really nice guy. But the band is called 'Black Veil Brides' not 'Andy Six and his little helpers'. Andy Six is just a guy. Albeit a lucky guy because of his looks and his talent, but still a guy. He is not the main focus of the band. I actually started liking this band after seeing one of Jake Pitt's videos on YouTube, not because of Andy. So yeah, bvb rocks.
    Cya.

    It's actually about his former girlfriend, scout taylor-compton. She was an actress in rob zombie's halloween and halloween ii. She played laurie strode. She was also in the runaways, tomorrow is today, triple dog, love ranch, the first time (aka love at first hiccup) and starred in a few tv shows like csi and recently grey's anatomy. Her father is a mortician and when andy was dating her, he wrote this song for her on one of their "dating anniversaries" but then they broke up.

    This whole song is about Scout Compton. He was 15 and Heart broken because she cheated on him while he was on tour. He was heartbroken and he said in this interview "Writing songs was all I knew on how to deal with my emotions" (I'm paraphrasing) The title "The Mortician's Daughter" came from Scout's father's occupation (he's a mortician)
    I hope that you find my meaning helpful.

    I feel like this song means that no matter how many miles you are away from someone is only a distance to walk to get to them. That no matter how much you miss someone, you will see them sooner or later, don't fret. Whether you're flying, driving, ferrying, running, or walking, you can get to where they are. And whether or not you get there, you can still know that they love you. If they don't remember you as you did them, they never were meant for you. But if they run to you with open arms, then you can be with them forever. I feel like this song perfectly describes a relationship with troubles, because they're so far apart. But you're trying to get there, to them, to be with them again. You left eachother with love still, but somewhere along the way of leaving, you realized that you were supposed to be with them all along. So you trek out for a thousand mile journey to see them again. To be with them. To hold them. To tell them how much you really loved them, and you couldn't imagine a life without them. That's what I think this song means.

    She will never listen this song with me in my arms n she will never be sorry to make me sad but I don't care I will try to forget her but how? I don't know, with this song I find myself, love is so painfull n I didn't deserve that, I just luved her so much than myself n she played with me. She has never said I love you n now I'm listening this song n dreaming you n me, I am still luving you mary n can't forget you.

    I think this song means different things to people but it still gets to people emotionally! Everybody has that one person that they wish they could have forever and regrets leaving! This is what I love so much about this band they really connect through their lyrics! Personally I love rebel love song so much more it makes me smile just thinking about it! I mean imagine andy singing this to you!

    I'm in love and I'm also only 14 so. This song. It just means love is something we can't always understand but true love can survive even the toughest battles. Even if you have to wait for ever true love never ends, and you have to let someone go in order t find your one true soul mate. Never give in! And to all you emos and scene kids like me out there good luck finding your soul mate.

    What this song means to me is more than just a good beat and soothing lyrics, I dissapred from the world not long ago, and when I came back my friends and family greeted me with open arms (and a phew bruises) they hate me for it but their hearts have been bleeding, when I went away I had many regrets, but now I have none. I love my girlfriend more then I can express. When I played this for her, she started to cry, then I started to cry. Needless to say, I hope this song goes multi-platinum. Bvb, I thank you for saving my life.

    This song made me cry the first time I heard it. I wish that some people could see this and think about how much their loved ones miss them while they are gone, because I don't think some people see that. This really reminds me of a boy I met a few years ago and in a few more months I will see him for the first time in 3 years. We haven't talked to each other for two years. Whenever I hear this song I think of him.

    I think this is a song about a girl andy obviously lived alot. "we booked our flight those years ago" means that he and his band had to leave but he still thinks about everyday hence "regret still haunts my hallowed head". The end of the song explains how he's no longer sad because he came back 'home' to her. Well, that's my intake of the song. I love it so much!

    I guess I can admit, I do obsess over andy but that's because hes everything I would look for in a guy. But that doesn't mean I don't care about the music and the other band members cuz that means alot to me. Andy's lyrics have got me through alot of s*t like his song Never Give in. Its like my life quote now :) I'm always in love with the lyrics of most bands. Oh and back to the song, I love the line "I love you more than i can ever scream" its so beautiful Black Veil Brides forever!

    To tell your heart you have moved on. Finally and offically. When I was sitting on my bed dying in saddness that my heart could never move on. Then I realized after listening in this song that he hasn't won. Niether of us have actully. I hope to him that when he is this one who sitting there and saying he misses me. All I say to him is. "i said i loved you and i left you regrets no longer in my head, i promised you and now i'm home agiain".

    This song really touched me. It's just overflowing with emotion and passion, in a beautiful, artistic way. Almost anybody could relate to this, and I just. Can't get over how raw and from the heart and simple this sounds. I have heard other songs with great messages and all, but too often they have just been ruined by meaningless fluff. It's like it was torn straight from his diary
    I give this a 100 on a scale of 1 - 10.

    What I think morticians daughter is about is that he is telling hiis lover that he doesn't want to sound like this is something cliche and he is saying he is saying I love you in other ways of words. He is far away from her and even so he is thinking about her and who wouldnt think about the one they love and smile or blush. Andy six is capable of loving a person just like everyone else on this earth because he is in reality just another person on it who was in love when he wrote this song. But there are other relationships that ca be described for best friends and or family members as well. Love comes in many different sizes, shapes, and packages and that's what keeps the world going. Not hate, madness, pollution obviously. What fuels us to keep going is love. That is my brief input on love and this incredible song! ~edwardluvah1 YouTube.

    This song is about when Andy and Scout were dating. He wrote it a while ago. To the fans it's meant to be about still loving someone who has either passed or you broke up. This song has deep meaning to me, Even though I have not broken up with someone I love. I'm currently in love with a girl that I know from church, but I don't got the guts to tell her. Sometimes I wanna learn how to play just one part of this song on guitar and go up to her and sing "I love you more than I can ever scream..." and the whole church knows I can freakin' scream!

    Thanks a lot. Well, if they do it from the heart I suppose it can't be bad. They are both young (16 yrs old) for 2 boys to get up in front of tons of people and perform this, then its not so bad. I really like this song myself its grown on me for sure! I'm 37, but actually like this group! I'm not into "ScreamO" but this group I like. Thanks dear for all your responses! Xo.

    Oh okay, thanks. My son and his friend wanted to perform this song at a funeral for a male friend 19yrs old when he died just this past week. Wasnt sure if this song would have been the "right" song for that. Some lines seem to be appropriate. "Baby boyyou held so tightly". "I love you more than i could ever scream". "I promise you i will see you again". Thanks for the response cjane!
