Dying in Your Arms

Album: Ascendancy (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • This was written by Trivium lead singer Matt Heafy, who says of the song: "Being with someone can be like an addiction. Gradually, you can't stand to be without them, everything you once enjoyed- you no longer care about, you become weak and dependent. Like a heroin addiction - you think you can't live without it, but you're gradually dying inside and out. Break free." >>
