Make Me Wanna Die Lyrics

Take me, I'm alive
Never was a girl with a wicked mind
But everything looks better when the sun goes down

I had everything
Opportunities for eternity
And I could belong to the night

Your eyes
Your eyes
I can see in your eyes
Your eyes

You make me wanna die
I'll never be good enough
You make me wanna die
And everything you love will burn up in the light
And every time I look inside your eyes
You make me wanna die

Taste me, drink my soul
Show me all the things that I shouldn't know
When there's a blue moon on the rise

I had everything
Opportunities for eternity
And I could belong to the night

Your eyes
Your eyes
I can see in your eyes
Your eyes
Everything in your eyes
Your eyes

You make me wanna die
I'll never be good enough
You make me wanna die
And everything you love will burn up in the light
And every time I look inside your eyes
You make me wanna die

I would die for you, my love
My love
I would lie for you, my love
My love (you make me wanna die)
I would steal for you, my love
My love (you make me wanna die)
And I would die for you my love, my love
We'll burn up in the light
And every time I look inside your eyes
I'm burning in the light, look inside your eyes
I'm burning in the light, I look inside your eyes
You make me wanna die

What is the Meaning of Make Me Wanna Die?

The lyrics convey a sense of self-sacrifice, with the protagonist willing to die or commit morally questionable acts for the sake of this consuming love. Yet, there's also a poignant acknowledgement of self-deprecation, as she believes she'll never be good enough for her lover. Ultimately, it's a haunting portrayal of love that burns too bright, threatening to consume everything in its path. #DarkLove #SelfSacrifice #TormentedPassion
