Bring Me The Horizon – Blessed With A Curse lyrics
Ever since this began, I was blessed with a curse.
And for better or for worse I was born into a hearse.
I know I said my heart beats for you. I was lying girl, it beats for two.
Because I
got your love and I got these vices.

Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.

Ever since this
began, I was blessed with a curse.
And for better or for worse I was born into a hearse.
I know I said my heart beats for you. I was lying girl.
I've been lying to you...

Everything I touch turns to stone (turns to stone).
So wrap your arms around me, and leave me on my own.
Everything I touch turns to stone
(turns to stone).
So wrap your arms around me, and leave me on my own.

Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said.

Because everything I touch turns to stone
(turns to stone).
So wrap your arms around me, and leave me, I can't hold on.

Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said, every word I've said.
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you.

    The guy made a mistake, lied to the girl etc.
    But hes saying that its because hes always been like this. "every word i've said, ever said to you"
    And.
    "born into a hearse" - (hes been like this since he was born)
    Both show this.
    The words "everything i touch turns to stone" indicate that he ruins everything. "leave me, i cant hold on" kind of gives a sense of 'save yourself its too late for me\'.

    The meaning to me is someone who is finally in love, and he thought it was a great thing. But all the other times he thought he was, he screwed it up because he was wishing for too much, wishing for something that wasn't there. He's scared that this is real love, but he doesn't want to take a chance and go on with it. He just wants to desert it before it turns into anything.

    Well I guess this guy probably knew right from onset, nothing was ever gonna work out fine in his hands.
    He obviously lied to a girl claiming he loves her but deep down, he loves two different things, "drugs" n "alcohol"
    Even though the girl seems to love him back, he also has vices (which makes him say or do things abnormal) so therefore she shouldn't take his words seriously.
    "Everything I touch turns to stone" everything (relationship and others) he got involved in never works out. It may start on a very high spirit but never profits, dies before the finish line.
    "so wrap your hands around me, and leave me alone" let them have their last moments together before they path ways or say their last goodbye.
    . I can't hold on" he cannot continue in the what he started because he certainly knows it's not going to work out fine.

    Having been in this particular situation myself I know and understand the meaning. He is blessed with the curse that is love. Because of bad instances he has found loving to be more pain than it is worth. He realizes that now that he has someone who loves him and has the potential to truly mean it everything is telling him to run. Every time he has loved it was as if it had all turned to ashes right in front of him, giving him the feelings that nothing good comes from loving. He feels his life has passed him by quickly and has been on a predetermined path to his end since the very beginning and has his doubts that there is a way to slow the pace and enjoy something.

    Blessed With A Curse, In my own personal opinion is about Oliver Sykes (Lead Singer) and how he is struggling with his addiction to a potent drug called Ketomine, in which the intense high makes him feel good but then the downward spiral into the curse that he is now addict to a drug, the fact that its called Blessed With A Curse is that it hides the instictive it's about a relationship when it is about his life and this is amazing writing and beautiful lyrics, but back to my further point, the blessing is that the drugs helped take him away from his past suicidal tendancies as in the first line it goes "Ever Since this began I was blessed with a curse", but then he wakes up one morning and finds that not only is the drugs a philiosophical "blessing" but their a curse as his Band Members hate him, his parents hate him and that the drugs have destroyed his life and lively hood, this is backed up as at the AP awards Oliver Sykes admitted to his addiction to ketomine and that he's being a recovering addict since the release of blessed with a curse so that is the true meaning of blessed with a curse

    Well, I might be wrong and I know this is probably not the real meaning, I'm borderline and I really can relate to the lyrics, being a borderline gives you the power to feel emotion much more strong than others, and sometimes can be taken as a blessed, but at the same time as a curse, for the fact that it can destroy. Borderline people experiment a weird feeling when they love, borderlines tries to keep the intense feelings they feel to themselves because otherwise it feels like you can lose and hurt yourself if you let the people know how you really feel about them, so when a borderline actually express their feels is common to feel a guilt and like something is wrong, like they shouldn't have told that.

    He's been lying to the girl, telling her his heart beats for her, and wanting to mean it, all along. He wants to get over his ex-lover once and for all with a new girl. But no matter how hard he tries, he can't. So he's telling this new girl one last goodbye, and moving on from her, because even though he will be left alone afterwards, it is still better than lying to her in the end.

    I have bipolar, and I totally see how this could fit for that, thought it easily could be totally unrelated. But bipolar is both a blessing and a curse. When channeled, it can become an amazing force of creation. But it can also destroy a persons life. The lying to the girl and everything can be taken as how it can make people say things that they regret and don't mean but destroy their relationships. Just my view on it.

    Subliminal. Subliminal. "ever since this began" (his music career) "i was blessed with a curse" (satan offering him a chance at fame) "and for better or for worse, i was born into a hearse" (he already sold his soul to satan) "i know i said, my heart beats for you" ("you" being satan) "i was lying girl" (he is using the image of a girl to cover the fact he is talking to satan) "it beats for two" (he believes in god and satan, but doesn't know which to choose) "cause i've got your love" (god's love) but I've got these vices" (he is powerless to satan) "take back every word I've said to you" (he regrets making the deal with satan) "everything I touch turns to stone" (his music corrupts people who listen to it) "so wrap your arms around me and leave me on my own" (he wants satan to go away).
    People are blinded. And don't know whats going on. They think it is actually about drugs and an actual girl. If you want that, start listening to another band, because you won't get the truth with bmth.

    I this song is about a guy talking to a girl he loves, but what he didn't tell her was that he also loved another girl (I was lying girl, it beats for two.). Genuine love for both of them though, and he can't decide. He is ashamed by this, and he tells her to leave him alone because everything he gets close to he hurts (Everything I touch turns to stone.
    So wrap your arms around me, and leave me on my own.)

    Voice in the beginning is saying 'But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. ' I think the general idea of the song is that everything he (be it oli or another member of the band) gets involved with goes wrong. 'So wrap your arms around me, and leave me on my own. ' So while he longs for lover etc once people have shown it he wants them to leave before they get hurt. Something like that.

    I think its about a guy having girl problems. Sometimes it's a blessing, other times a curse. He loved a girl, and fell for another. He wants to take back what he said to the first girl, but she won't accept it. He wants to be left alone.
    I can relate to this song /: except instead of a guy, I'm a girl, and the song would be about a guy.

    This song is about a girl cheating on oli and oli sykes is trying to forget her. When he says "i know i said, my heart beats for you, i was lying girl it beats for two" it shows that he has come to realise his world has revolved around the girl and now he sees a new world which he likes but the past relationship has scarred his emotions because he can't love anything else, he shows us this by saying "everything i touch turns to stone" when he says "wrap your arms around me and leave me" he's showing us he still wants her embrace but he thinks about what she has done and theres nothing for them. Tbh bring me the horizon are lyrical genius' every line in every song have a deeper meaning in them you can tell they think about what they are writing and they place it in the song beautifully and every song is about their experiences. Bmth rock!
