Our Lady of Sorrows” is the fifth track on My Chemical Romance’s début album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, as well as the bands third single.

Meaning Edit

This song is about an experience Gerard Way had with a nun while in Catholic school as a child. The original attic demo, with just Gerard, Ray an Matt, was named 'Bring More Knives' and had a different timing. Mikey Way heard the song and fell in love with it. Afterwards, he managed to teach himself bass in just four days to play in the band.

Lyrics Edit

We could be perfect one last night
And die like star-crossed lovers when we fight
And we can settle this affair
If you would shed your yellow take my hand
And then we’ll solve the mystery of laceration gravity
This riddle of revenge please understand it has to be this way and


Stand up fucking tall
Don’t let them see your back
Take my fucking hand
And never be afraid again


We’ve only got one chance to put this at an end
And cross the patron saint of switchblade fights
You said we’re not celebrities, we spark and fade, they die by threes
I’ll make you understand and you can trade me for an apparition


Stand up fucking tall
Don’t let them see your back
Take my fucking hand
And never…


Trust, you said
Who put the words in your head
Oh how wrong we were to think
That immortality meant never dying


Stand
Take my fucking hand
Take my fucking…


Stand up fucking tall
Don’t let them see your back
Take my fucking hand
And never be afraid again


Just because my hands around your throat
