Drowning Pool – 37 Stitches lyrics

Do you see me, Sittin here
Waiting for you, To say anything
Your head hung low, Kickin stones down
Kickin' stones down the road to hell now
Waiting for you, To say anything, Anything

I know you are the only one
A little taste of heaven
You know I am The only one
Your bitter taste of hell

Your eyes scream the end is creepin in
I'll need 37 stitches to keep the pain in
I know you are the only one
On the darkest side of the sun

On the darkest side of the sun
Ooh yeah

Followed the piper's sweet whistlin
Guided down the path by the wrong hand
Close my eyes for the chance of a better view
Close my ears so I couldn't hear you

I know you are the one
You know I am The one
Your bitter taste of hell

I know you are the only one
A little taste of heaven
You know I am The only one
Your bitter taste of hell

Your eyes scream the end is creepin in
I'll need 37 stitches to keep the pain in
I know you are the only one
On the darkest side of the sun

Do you see me, Sittin here
Still waiting for you, To say anything
Head hung low, Kickin stones down
Kickin stones down the road to hell now
I'm waiting for you, I'm waiting for you
To say Anything, Yeah!

I know you are the only one
A little taste of heaven
You know I am The only one
Your bitter taste of hell

Your eyes scream the end is creepin in
I'll need 37 stitches, 37 stitches, Yeah!
I know you are the only one
On the darkest side of the sun

I Know, I know (darkest side of the sun)
You are the one
On the darkest side of the sun.

    The singer is a rough dude and knows it, but loves this girl because she inspires him to be better; but no matter what, he now realizes he's not capable of being someone he can't be, no matter how hard he tries. And now he knows that she is seeing it this way, and that the "end is creepin' in" and she's about to break it off (reluctantly - she's looking down at her feet and kicking the stones on the ground), and despite his self-denial ("close my eyes for the chance of a better view | close my ears so i couldn't hear you"), it's coming - and the inevitable pain will be so great it'll take 37 stitches to stitch his broken heart back together.

    I think the song is about two lovers that have the best s** in the world and are connected for all the wrong reasons. The person singing craves the other person and waits for the next "Taste" but he is either in a relationship or unavailible for some reason so being with the singer is dragging the other lover to hell, but they can't keep from wanting to be together.

    I think this song is about two people that have an undeniable, unbreakable connection - something much deeper than love. They've tried to be together several times, but one of them keeps doing something to sabotage it. But no matter what, they keep finding their way back to each other because they recognize that they are meant to be together and instinct and an overwhelming need for each other tells them they must keep trying. Because it really is meant to be.

    It is simple 37 stitches implies That losing his lover equates to the removal of the heart during autopsy requires 37 stitches to close the chest back up afterwards. It is after a break up which he doesn't want nor accept. He has condemned himself to a miserable existence and thinks they belong together.

    This song is about 2 lovers, so intense that it overcomes them both. For good or bad they are connected on a level that is above the normal plane of existance. The singer has obviously lost sight of that, or had no choice but to break that connection. Hes in pain over the loss but doesn't know exactly what to do to fix it. He feels like his insides are being ripped out from the pain he feels, and the pain that he has caused his love. I have a personal connection to this song. It was somehow wrote for me I think.
