Dashboard Confessional Hands Down Lyrics

Last updated: 03/08/2011 10:00:00 AM

Breathe in for luck,
breathe in so deep,
this air is blessed,
you share with me.
This night is wild,
so calm and dull,
these hearts they race,
from self control.
Your legs are smooth,
as they graze mine,
we're doing fine,
we're doing nothing at all.

My hopes are so high,
that your kiss might kill me.
So won't you kill me,
so I die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst,
to break or bury,
or wear as jewelery,
which ever you prefer.

The words are hushed lets not get busted;
just lay entwined here, undiscovered.
Safe in here from all the stupid questions.
"hey did you get some?"
Man, that is so dumb.
Stay quiet, stay near, stay close they can't hear...
so we can get some.

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me.
So won't you kill me, so I die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst,
to break or bury, or wear as jewelery,
which ever you prefer.

Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember,
I'll always remember the sound of the stereo,
the dim of the soft lights,
the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers
and the time on the clock when we realized it's so late
and this walk that we shared together.
The streets were wet
and the gate was locked so I jumped it,
and I let you in.
And you stood at your door with your hands on my waist
and you kissed me like you meant it.
And I knew that you meant it,
that you meant it,
that you meant it,
and I knew,
that you meant it,
that you meant it.

that you meant it | Reviewer: jb | 3/8/11

damn.. first of all: thanks to the girls from 12/16/07 and 3/27/09.. right from my heart <3

for me, this song is one of the MOST touching pieces of music. i often adopt it to the "coming together" with my first real love. we were around 16 and we definitley knew, there is "something" between us. though, it took us about 3 years, after getting very close, good friends. and folks! that special day, during the holidays, i will never forget ("i will always remember..."). it is exactly like the last part in this song "and you kissed me like you meant it" every time i hear this song i HAVE to sing the whole last verse because it could be written by ourselves. we had nearly three wonderful years. i thought "this is it. this is she" but on day, without any signs she broke up. this was now again ~3 years ago and i still dont know why she really did.
so what i wanna tell you? try to get the best out of every second, when you are really in love. dont waste any time.. it could be short!

peace and lots of love from germany

My heart is yours | Reviewer: Jocie | 8/28/10

This song is amazing, no other way to describe it. The lyrics are special to me because its creepy how well it describes me and my BFs first date. Definately our song and our vows will probably be "My heart is yours to fill or burst, to break or bury, or wear as jewelry, whichever you prefer"
I <3 You Colin :)

this has been my favorite song for six years, and not once has it lost it's affect on me. every time i listen to it it's like i'm hearing it for the first time all over again, the magic never leaves

wow | Reviewer: esther | 6/7/09

this song is awesome, the first time i heard it i completely stopped what i was doing... facinated!!! every time i listen to it i get that feeling of exitement takes over - this is a BRILLIANT song!!!

amazing and touching. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/27/09

you can't help but love it. it is, in one word, perfection. this song is one of those that gives you that 'feeling'.

.. the feeling you get when you know you love someone. my boyfriend and i dated over a year ago, but then he broke my heart. we became best friends after a period of not speaking to one another. & the whole time we still had feelings for one another. we finally got back together. it just felt right..

& that's why this song reminds me of it and makes me so happy. because no matter what people said, it didn't matter. they judged us for getting back together but we knew they weren't important.

and so it's that feeling again. when someone you love takes your hand and holds it tight, and it makes you feel like they'll never let you go. when you sit there doing absolutely nothing, perhaps not even talking, but in that moment, you are perfectly content. or when you are talking and you can let your mind go anywhere and everywhere. it's that feeling.

Hands Up :D | Reviewer: Catieola | 2/13/09

This is such a beautiful song.
Great lyrics. I'm gonna actually go try and learn how to play my guitar again just so I can play this song.
And I read your whole suckumentary (to the girl on 12/16/07). So touching. <3

The most heartfelt lyrics ever(:
I've been avoiding any serious relationships, but hearing this song makes me want to reconsider; it makes me want to be loved again.

I hope I find a guy who feels this way about me.

everyone. | Reviewer: kirsty. | 12/4/08

who has a brain would love this song.
its hard to believe that one guy actually wrote these lyrics.

they are so heart felt.

the girl who these lyrics were written for,
must be someone special.

because it is so beautiful.

if only the good guys really did exsist.


love <3 | Reviewer: Paige | 8/18/08
