My Chemical Romance – The Only Hope For Me Is You lyrics
Remember me x6

Where
Where will you stand
When all the lights go out
Across these city streets?

Where were you when
All of the embers fell
I still remember

There
Covered in ash
Covered in glass
Covered in all my friends

I still
Think of the bombs they built

If there's a place that I could be
Then I'd be another memory
Can I be the only hope for you
Because you're the only hope for me
And if we can't find where we belong
We'll have to end it on our own
Face all the pain and take it on
Because the only hope for me is you alone

How would you be
Many years after the disasters that we've seen
What have we learnt
Of other people burning purifiyng flames

I'll say it's okay
I know you can tell
You thought you can see me smile
I still
Think of the guns they sell

If there's a place that I could be
Then I'd be another memory
Can I be the only hope for you
Because you're the only hope for me
And if we can't find where we belong
We'll have to end it on our own
Face all the pain and take it on
Because the only hope for me is you alone

The only hope for me
The only hope for me is you
The only hope for me is you
The only hope for me is you
The only hope for me is you
The only hope for

If there's a place that I could be
Then I'd be another memory
Can I be the only hope for you
Because you're the only hope for me
And if we can't find where we belong
We'll have to end it on our own
Face all the pain and take it on
Because the only hope for me is you alone

(The only hope for me is you) Repeated throughout
For me is you alone
For me is you alone
For me is you
The only hope for me is you
The only hope for me is you alone

    Personally, I think that this song may be about 9/11 and other terrorist acts. In the first verse, the glass and ash and friends could be relating to 9/11 when the plane crashed. The same goes to the "disasters we've seen" and "burning purifying flames" in the second verse. This is also supported by the fact that Gerard Way came up with the idea to make a band on 9/11. "The only hope for me is you" line could be referring to his loved ones as the "you," and that since this tragedy he would not feel safe unless he was with his loved ones.

    This is our song, (mine and my gf's) she showed me this and said it was our song after listening to it just to where it said the only hope for me is you. I knew it was our song, she is my only hope, I love her so much and I know it will last, I am going to marry her and make it perfect for her as she does with me for just being with me ^_^.

    I think this song is about a soldier or someone who has witnessed a lot of violence, trying to return to a normal life. They are finding it hard to adjust because their life has been different for so long, and they can't stop thinking about bombs and guns. They are reaching out to another person and asking for help. Basically, only love can save them.
    I love this song and I love mcr.
