Silverstein – My Heroine lyrics
The drugs begin to peak
A smile of joy arrives in me
But sedation changes to panic and nausea
And breath starts to shorten
And heartbeats pound softer

You won't try to save me
You just want to hurt me
And leave me desperate

You taught my heart
A sense I never knew I had
I can't forget
The times that I was lost and depressed from the awful truth
How do you do it?
You're my heroine

You won't leave me alone
Chisel my heart out of stone
I give in everytime

You taught my heart
A sense I never knew I had
I can't forget
The times that I was lost and depressed from the awful truth
How do you do it?
You're my heroine

I bet you laugh
At the thought of me thinking for myself (myself)
I bet you believe (bet you believe)
That I'm better off with you than someone else

Your face arrives again
A hope I had become surreal
But under your cover's
More torture than pleasure
And just past your lips
There's more anger than laughter
Not now or forever will I ever change you
I know that to go on I'll break you, my habit

You taught my heart
A sense I never knew I had
I can't forget
The times that I was lost and depressed from the awful truth
How do you do it?
You're my heroine

I Will Save Myself!

    The song has been a total hit to the industry even though some doesn't really know the true meaning of the song. Xd I guess that people only judge the song by what they think it is. But the real true meaning of it as I know is that the guy in the song loves a girl but he is being hurt so he tries to move on using a drug that is called Heroine. When he eventually knew that he can't move on by this. He tried to refrain from his habit and is still trying his best because he doesn't want to be breaked by the drug.

    -- first of all I think its "taunt " not "taught ". Really I think that I means that the guy is addicted to the girl the same.
    Way a person gets addicted to a drug -- -- the highs are good the withdrawls are barely bareable - and I think that she hurt him in soem way for him to say " i cant forget The times that I was lost and depressed from the awful truth"- I think she thinks less of him or has more control to move on "I bet you laugh
    At the thought of me thinking for myself"and that's shes no good for him.
    Cause it causes him pain to be with her buh he "loves" her so much he can't keep himself away buh he knows that he has to inorder to move on. It could be an ex that broke up with him and still flirts - or is playing games with him - I love this song cause it fits my situation --

    It's aboht a man who's addicted to the drug Heroin who finds a woman who is bringing him out of his addiction, she's his saving grace, his Heroine

    "I WAS lost and depressed" - Past tense, he had been lost before her coming into his life

    "...from the awful truth" -lost and depressed over becoming a Heroin addict

    "How do YOU do it?" - He is in awe at how The girls love for him and his love for her is inspiring him to change his ways and over come his addiction to Heroin.

    I read somewhere, that Shane Told meant two different things with My Heroine. The drugs, but the female hero too.
    The Female, could've saved the man's life it's about. But than se betrayed him or something, and he got depressed. But now he wants to get over it, and be happy again.
    And the drug version, I Think. Is about it helped him forget things, and than he became an addict, and that he couldn't live without it. And now (because the: I will save myself) that he wants to come clean, just what Nekomatarashi said.
    I don't think people should argue about what this song means, because I think, that it means what you want it to mean.
    Besides this, I still love this song, and it's my fav.

    For me it refers to a relationship that is addictive, the believe that you can't live without them, even though infact they are doing you more harm than good. "you taught my heart a sense i never knew i had" represents the believe that some people don't believe that love exists until it hits you hard. I felt like this, then met the only person I believe I could love ever, and this song sums up our relationship. It was and still is an addiction, and the fact is the guy did hurt me, used emotional blackmail and tried to change me into what he want me to be. This song is one of many silverstein songs that do give me hope, I think its one of them that can be interpreted into so many individuals lives as everyone has their own form of "heroine"

    To me my heroine is a song that reminds me of my first love. I was 14 when we started going out. And he showed me this song as sid it's our song. We did have a few songs that we called our own but, this is the one that stayed in my head the longest. And even though we broke up around 5 months afterwards; when I hear this song I still feel the same way about him as I did then. I miss him and he changed me and for all those good memories we had. I will never forget him.

    @crystals21: Please refrain from comparing an epic band like Silverstein to a horrible movie/book like Twilight.
    Meaning: It's about a guy's struggle with pot. It says "heroine" because it saved him from his troubles. "I bet you laught at the thought of me thinking for myself" refers to how it affects the brain and makes you do things you normaly wouldn't. Also the first paragraph refers to the physical effects it haves on you. When it says "You won't try to save me, you just want to hurt me and leave me desperate" that's his common sense telling him that he shouldn't be doing it. Then of course the end "I will save myself" is him saying that he's going to try and become clean and break his habbit.

    "I cant forget, the times that i was, LOST and DEPRESSED from the awful truth!" what could this mean? It seems that it means the girl cheated and used him and the girl don't mind if the boy feels the pain and the boy realize that this (#@$%#$@)girl is better off! Than someone else, and the boy was reffering his girlfriend to a drug that it seems to keep him in danger/sick if the girl is with him, its like a person taking drugs,.
    For me! Vices -Silverstein is the continuation of this meaning^_^ try.

    What a song! It really confuses a lot of you, as I can see. But, guys, you haven't yet thought one possibility: that the man in this song perhaps is expecting one heroine to save him from 'sedation'(whatever it is.!)and she isn't going to help him. As it stems from the lyrics. Xxe: p! Anyway, I think silverstein's music is really cool, whatever they say in their lyrics! Xa0xa0xa0! :)

    Yeah. I agree with you that the boy wasn't crazy. He's crazy in love with the girl. Coz I think 23 is lot of meant to him that recalls the happiest moment of their life that they spent with each other. Maybe it's their anniversary. That's why he used heroine to ease the pain and when he's already high he planned it on the day and decided to ended his life. What a great plan. Lol ^_^.
