Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I thought that I've been hurt before
But no one's ever left me quite this sore
Your words cut deeper than a knife
Now I need someone to breathe me back to life
Verse 2
Got a feeling that I'm going under
But I know that I'll make it out alive
If I quit calling you my lover
Move on
Verse 3
You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
I'm shaking falling onto my knees
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
I'm tripping over myself
I'm aching begging you to come help
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
Verse 4
Just like a moth drawn to a flame
Oh you lured me in I couldn't sense the pain
Your bitter heart cold to the touch
Now I'm gonna reap what I sew
I'm left seeing red on my own
Verse 5
Got a feeling that I'm going under
But I know that I'll make it out alive
If I quit calling you my lover
Move on
Verse 6
You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
I'm shaking falling onto my knees
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
I'm tripping over myself
I'm aching begging you to come help
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
Verse 7
Needle and the thread
Gotta get you out of my head
Needle and the thread
Gonna wind up dead
Verse 8
Needle and the thread
Gotta get you out of my head
Needle and the thread
Gonna wind up dead
Verse 9
Needle and the thread
Gotta get you out of my head
Needle and the thread
Gonna wind up dead
Verse 10
Needle and the thread
Gotta get you out of my head get you out of my head
Verse 11
You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
I'm shaking falling onto my knees (falling on my knees)
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches (and I'll be needing stitches)
I'm tripping over myself
I'm aching begging you to come help (begging baby please)
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
Verse 12
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches

17 Thoughts and Song Meanings

Usafchic17 I really liked your original post you made, I know exactly what you mean. I would really appreciate having someone to discuss my heroin addiction with at certain times and finding anyone who actually understands and isn't judgemental of things is so difficult. I would love to be able to discuss things with you though and have someone to talk about the struggle with when it gets tough. You should email me at MHeimiller87@gmail.com and I'll send you a link to my FB. I really look forward to hearing from you please : ) - Comment by MarkH87 1 year ago
I also took meaning from it relating to my addiction and my process of recovery after all the times I have given in and relapsed. The other thing about it also that fits this song well is once you are a full blown opiate addict that stuff literally takes precedence over any relationship and it becomes your only true love in life and will go above and beyond for our relationship to the drug and needle. Once you pick up a needle and try some really good product for the first time it is opening Pandora's Box and the way you see life is never the same after that, I'm clean now and go to AA/NA meetings every day and really am so over that poison, yet I'm still afraid I will relapse at some point and have cravings for it mentally and physically all the time. Especially when things are going shitty cause it's so much more tempting to turn to and always know in the back of my mind that it would make everything perfectly fine for the time being while I'm high, but then as it wears off I just slip right back into the same state I was in prior to my relapse but now even more resentful due to the relapse... It's a life or death struggle it truly is. - Comment by MarkH87 1 year ago
Wow couldn't agree more totally hits home to any recovering heroin addict. especially mean I can go on and on and on but you know what I mean - Comment by subdub79 1 year ago
Same here it's nice to know I'm not the only one either. When I would try to explain to friends what I thought the song meant they looked at me like I'm insane. - Comment by K.I.S.S.12 1 year ago
I got the same message from that song.. I think it's referring to recovery... Needle and a thread (trying to hit a vein) gonna end up dead.... - Comment by parteing247 1 year ago
