Demolition Lovers is the last track on My Chemical Romance's début album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love.

Meaning Edit

The meaning of the song is that two people fall in love, but the love is forbidden; the people who disagree come after the lovers, and so the lovers flee. The lovers get into the man's car and "take to the highway"; the lovers are cought up and then, they are both shot, and lying in a pool of blood, they kiss, for the last time.

On the surface this song is about loving someone to death, but the background to this track is a story that Gerard has concieved about two characters, he and his partner. They are both killed but he ends up in Purgatory and the only way that he can get to her is if he kills 1000 evil men. This is the story of how they died. Part of Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge follows up this song, and also part of the Demolition Lovers epic is the song Drowning Lessons as it touches upon "1000 bodies piled up". But of course, there are imagery ties to Natural Born Killers. Also it's about how Gerard would die for the one he loves. In the inlay of the album it says "To K: I'm sorry I wrote all those songs about killing you, i hope the last track makes up for it." The last track is Demolition Lovers. I'd end my days with you in a hail of bullets.

Lyrics Edit

Hand in mine
Into your icy blues
And then I'd say to you
We could take to the highway
With this trunk of ammunition, too
I'd end my days with you
In a hail of bullets

I'm trying
I'm trying to let you know just how much you mean to me
And after
All the things we put each other through

And I would drive on to the end with you
A liquor store or two
Keeps the gas tank full
And I feel like there's nothing left to do
But prove myself to you
And we'll keep it running

But this time
I mean it
I'll let you know just how much you mean to me
As snow falls
On desert sky
Until the end of everything

I'm trying
I'm trying to let you know how much you mean
As days fade
And nights grow
And we grow cold

Until the end
Until this pool of blood
Until this
I mean this
I mean this
Until the end of..

I'm trying
I'm trying to let you know how much you mean.
As days fade
And nights grow
And we go cold

But this time
We'll show them
We'll show them all how much we mean
As snow falls
On desert sky
Until the end of every..

All we are..
All we are is bullets
I mean this
All we are..
All we are is bullets
I mean this
All we are..
All we are is bullets
I mean this.
All we are..
All we are is bullets
I mean this

As lead rains
Pass on through
Our phantoms
Forever forever

Like scarecrows
That fuel this flame
We're burning
Forever and ever

Know how much I want to show you you're the only one
Like a bed of roses there's a dozen reasons
In
This
Gun

And as we're falling down
And in this pool of blood
And as we're touching hands..
And as we're falling down
And in this pool of blood..
And as we're falling down
I'll see your eyes
And in this pool of blood
I'll meet your eyes
I mean this
Forever!
