Vampires Will Never Hurt You

Album: I Brought You My Bullets You Brought Me Your Love (2002)
  • And if they get me and the sun goes down into the ground
    And if they get me take this spike to my heart and
    And if they get me and the sun goes down
    And if they get me take this spike and
    You put the spike in my heart

    And if the sun comes up will it tear the skin right off our bones
    And then as razor sharp white teeth rip out our necks I saw you there
    Someone call the doctor, someone get me to a church
    Where they can pump this venom gaping hole
    And you must keep your soul like a secret in your throat
    And if they come and get me
    You put the spike in my heart

    And if they get me and the sun goes down
    And if they get me take this spike and

    Can you take this spike?
    Will it fill our hearts with thoughts of endless
    Night time sky
    Can you take this spike?
    Will it wash away this jet black feeling?

    And now the nightclub set the stage for this they come in pairs she said
    We'll shoot back holy water like cheap whiskey they're always there
    Someone get me to the doctor, and someone call the nurse
    And someone buy me roses, and someone burned the church
    We're hanging out with corpses, we're driving in this hearse
    Someone save my soul tonight, please save my soul


    And as these days watch over time, and as these days watch over time
    And as these days watch over us tonight
    I'll never let them, I'll never let them
    I'll never let them hurt you now tonight
    I'll never let them, I can't forget them
    I'll never let them hurt you, I promise

    Struck down, before our prime
    Before, you got off the floor
    Can you stake my heart? Can you stake my heart?
    Can you stake me before the sun goes down? Writer/s: Frank Iero, Gerard Way, Matthew Pellisier, Michael Way, Ray Toro

  • 5 Star Genral from GeorgiaThis song is about the constant struggle about thoughts of suicide and how it torments your mind and soul!
  • Nick from San Paulo, IaAnother Brick in the Wall perhaps?...
  • Diana from Ridgefield, CtI think this is probably my favorite song by my already favorite band.
    Rock on MCR
  • Bailey from Belleville, Njmeh. here we go again with the concept albums? i think they all have storylines, but to say just the entire album says one thing? no. each individual song has a meaning. thats why i found this place.
  • Aisling from Wexford, IrelandGreat!!!! I'm from Ireland too!! agree with ya siobhan complitly!! (nice irish name too, i've got a cousin called siobhan too!! how cool!!) LOL
  • Katie from Hopewell Junction, Nyi love my chemical romance i wouldn't be ALIVE without them
  • V-starr from ?????????, Mii like this song alot. it's one of my faves from Bullets. Did you know that Gerard and Frank painted the room when the music video was shot in... and that the two got high AND sick from the fumes?
  • Morgan from Gresham, Orya roberto this is off the first album. and three cheers for sweet revenge wasnt about her becoming a vampire. it was originally about a couple who gets caught in a gunfight and the guy is killed and goes to hell and he finds out that she is still alive and if he kills 1,000 evil men and brings their souls back to the devil he can be with her again. but i dont even think the characters have names, the song helena is about mikey and gerards grandmother (Elena) dying. the album ended up being about loss more than anything though.
  • Amber from New York, Ny"And if they get me take this spike and
    You put the spike in my heart"
    cuz he doesnt wanna become greedy
  • Carol from Chesterton, Ini love this song and i get the part about using vampires to represents greedy people. kinda like get rid of me it i become one of them. i might be wrong but i still love this sone and MCR. i also love vampires so that works too LOL
  • Hilary from Kville, Ksroberto---how is it part of the second album when its on the first????
  • Macy from New Albany, Inthis is a awesome song. Its one of the best that they have ever wrote!
  • Roberto from Lima, Peruthis is part of the concept album and is how the girl (helena) is becoming a "vampire" and the man does no want it to happen and he promises her that he will never let them her you
  • Chelsey from Lake Charles, Lai think the song is about a man that loves a girl and he when he says "stake my heart" I think that means he is telling the girl to kill me now before i hurt u. but that is just my opinon
  • Jose Luis from Monclova City , Mexicothis is the best band of the world and this song is great
