A Little Piece Of Heaven

Album: Avenged Sevenfold (2007)
  • Before the story begins, is it such a sin,
    For me to take what's mine, until the end of time
    We were more than friends, before the story ends,
    And I will take what's mine, create what
    God would never design

    Our love had been so strong for far too long,
    I was weak with fear that
    Something would go wrong,
    Before the possibilities came true,
    I took all possibility from you
    Almost laughed myself to tears,
    Conjuring her deepest fears
    (come here you fucking bitch)

    Must have stabbed her fifty fucking times,
    I can't believe it,
    Ripped her heart out right before her eyes,
    Eyes over easy, eat it eat it eat it

    She was never this good in bed
    Even when she was sleepin'
    Now she's just so perfect I've
    Never been quite so fucking deep in
    It goes on and on and on,
    I can keep you lookin' young and preserved forever,
    With a fountain to spray on your youth whenever

    'Cause I really always knew that my little crime
    Would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
    And I know, I know it's not your time
    But bye, bye
    And a word to the wise when the fire dies
    You think it's over but it's just begun
    But baby don't cry

    You had my heart, at least for the most part
    'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, we fell apart
    Let's make a new start
    'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime yeah
    But baby don't cry

    Now possibilities I'd never considered,
    Are occurring the likes of which I'd never heard,
    Now an angry soul comes back from beyond the grave,
    To repossess a body with which I'd misbehaved

    Smiling right from ear to ear
    Almost laughed herself to tears

    Must have stabbed him fifty fucking times
    I can't believe it
    Ripped his heart out right before his eyes
    Eyes over easy
    Eat it eat it eat it

    Now that it's done I realize the error of my ways
    I must venture back to apologize from somewhere far beyond the grave

    I gotta make up for what I've done
    'Cause I was all up in a piece of heaven
    While you burned in hell, no peace forever

    'Cause I really always knew that my little crime
    Would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
    And I know, I know it's not your time
    But bye, bye
    And a word to the wise when the fire dies
    You think it's over but it's just begun
    But baby don't cry

    You had my heart, at least for the most part
    'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, we fell apart
    Let's make a new start
    'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime yeah
    But baby don't cry

    I will suffer for so long
    (What will you do, not long enough)
    To make it up to you
    (I pray to God that you do)
    I'll do whatever you want me to do
    (Well then I'll grant you one chance)
    And if it's not enough
    (If it's not enough, If it's not enough)
    If it's not enough
    (Not enough)
    Try again
    (Try again)
    And again
    (And again)
    Over and over again

    We're coming back, coming back
    We'll live forever, live forever
    Let's have wedding, have a wedding
    Let's start the killing, start the killing

    "Do you take this man in death for the rest of your unnatural life'"
    "Yes, I do"
    "Do you take this woman in death for the rest of your unnatural life'"
    "I do"
    "I now pronounce you"

    'Cause I really always knew that my little crime
    Would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
    And I know, I know it's not your time
    But bye, bye
    And a word to the wise when the fire dies
    You think it's over but it's just begun
    But baby don't cry

    You had my heart, at least for the most part
    'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, we fell apart
    Let's make a new start
    'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime yeah
    But baby don't cry Writer/s: Brian Elwin Haner, JR., James Owen Sullivan, Jonathan Seward, Matthew Charles Sanders, Zachary James Baker

  • AnonymousGives me hard Mike Patton vibes
  • Spencer from Denver-coloradoThis song is really creepy... BUT AWESOME! (O_O)/ -ME WHENEVER I HEAR THIS SONG XD
  • Yamez from Ohio, UsaI noticed a couple of other comments regarding Danny Elfman and Nightmare Before Christmas. That's the first thing I thought. It reminds me of NBC or Batman Returns, both scored by Elfman. I have to say, as far as musicians, these guys rule. Sinister's leads and general guitar work, intricate harmonizing guitar and vocal work, very powerful lead vocals all amazing. Their range is also incredible, so many different styles of music, even in the same song. Reminds me of a more mainstream Mr. Bungle.
  • Raptor from Southend-on-sea, United KingdomWhen he says "I was weak with fear that something would go wrong. before the possibilities came true, I took all possibilities from you." It was him giving her an ultimatum so that effectively if he can't have her no-one will.
  • Megan from Stevenson, AlI don't usually like bands like these, but this is awesome! This song blows me away!
  • Kinley from Thimphu, Bhutana7x is my favourite band and this is my favourite song,the lyrics are awesome,the music,the vocals...EVERYTHING about this song is awesome...A7X RULE!! m/
  • Allison from Clarksville, Tnthis is an amazing song by them(: its a lot different from the rest of their songs, so its amazinggggg
  • Austin from San Jose, CaThis song gives me chills at parts, relating to the Rev's death (RIP)
  • Tom from Mechelen, BelgiumWell, I realy love the song, so ***king much, and I can't imagine that there is a better song. Now I play saxophone and I am searching almost over 2 years for the partiture, its to difficult for me to find the notes. Now, I started to play Tenor sax, and now I so freaking hard wanna play the song because its a master piece! :D
    If some-one can help me?
    I already thought of sending a mail to A7x, but i don't know what would happen xD
    Thanx
  • Collin from Cridersville, AfghanistanThat is a good song. i like it
  • Kelsey from Westport, CtThis was the first song I heard from this band. At first I was wierded out a bit. Now I love this song and this band.
  • Slyar from Coolidge, Azthe music is the best but the video was disturbing...
  • Alan from The Meadow Of Rainbows, United KingdomThis is really a marmite song, but I love it.
  • Rickey from Lansing, Mithis song is really creepy, but i love it. i realy like how they use alot of different instruments.
  • Sarah from Portland, Orbecky i love you!!!
    and i agree 100% with her :D
  • Becky from Portland, Ori love this song(:
    one of my favs from A7X
    i dont know why people hate it its theatrical and the instrumentals are amazing.
    very different i love it(:
  • Alex from Atlanta, GaThe video is really twisted and disturbing but I love the song. It's really different.
  • Alec from Pal Harbor, Flnot to offend anyone (i love a7x) this song gave me nightmares and its kinda sick. ive only heard it once and im afraid to go back (i may sound like i whimp but its true)
  • Joe from Sin City, NvThis song is amazing, the arrangement, the lyrics, the story told, everything about it.

    For those that have reminders of Nightmare Before Christmas, it's pretty well placed, Tim Burton almost always has Danny Elfman compose the score for his movies and this track sounds VERY Elfman-esque.
  • Gabanti from Your Mum, United Kingdomthis song is awsome,, its the weirdest, but best love song ever , this was a kind of jokey song while they were making it in the studio though, so dont take it too seriously,, but i love it!
  • Weston from Aztec, NmI love how this song goes back and forth from menacing to mellow.
  • Jim from Ralston, Nein the video he kills her over being denyed marriage, but if you listen to the song its because he's afraid she would leave him. "i was weak with fear that something would go wrong. before the possibilities came true, i took all possibilities from you." as for if they're married or not, it never says but implied not.
  • Ashley from St. Paul, Mnthis is a really interesting song. i think it shows how diverse of song writers they are. they can go from a song like critical acclaim, to dear god, to this all in one album. when i first heard it, it reminded me of The Nightmare Before Christmas. ha
  • Rod from Logan, Njthe video was cool!!
  • Devin from Fort Wayne, Inthis is an awsome song but it scared me the first time i heard it
  • Jess from Montreal, QcMy favorite song by them its awesome
  • Dick from San Francisco, Caif you want to see the video go to krab.com. Its under "A" for avenged sevenfold in the on demand video section.
  • Lee from Oakville, OnActually Amy from new york. It is not Zachy who says stuff it is the Drummer , "The Rev." I love this song and dont really care what its aboutt :P
  • Paul from Tucson, Azi hated this song when i first heard it, but it grew on me and i fell in love with it.
  • Erik from Brownwood , Txi think this is the worst A7X song out there. im kinda disappointed because its so far away from their style. i love A7X still tho.
  • Gabby from Austin, TxWell, in a sense all of you are right. Avenged Sevenfold wrote this song as they needed some time away from the "real world", so they went to Matt's cabin and made this song that was formerly known as Big Bear. Initially, the song is about this man and his significant other who he ends up killing then preserving to do whatever he wants with her. Then, she comes back unexpectedly from the grave to kill him where they then go on to get married and end up terrorizing everyone else happily. But the underlying reason they wrote this song was because it was just something new and fun that was put together piece by piece until it was perfected into this song. Basically, they were just having fun with it and it's something to be proud of on their part.
  • Tyler from Oak Grove, Moactually the only thing that craig messed up is that they were not married in the begginng if you watch the video youd know that it is a cartoon for one and two that he proposes to her and she says no the rest is accurate as far a interpretation goes or unless you personally know A7X and know the meaning they intended
  • Ozzy from Fresno, CaWow this song is like a joke..When I first heard it I liked, but now its like my least favorite song by them..
    I would be really good in a Tim Burton film tho
  • James from Houston, Txactually Danny's right. In the video, the couple wasn't actually married *and in the song there's no proof of them married before the guy killed the girl* but now you can't watch the video cuz it keeps getting taken down. Still a very good song, My second favorite song from this album
  • William from Bergen, NorwayIt's all about what it says up there. So you should really see the making of the album, and listen to the song.
  • Amy from New York, Nyactually Danny, it is indeed what the song is about and if youd 1. listen to the song you would know and 2. listen to what zachy says you would also understand that its everything Craig said so yea thanks bye
