AFI - 17 Crimes Lyrics



If you had a day,
would you give me a moment?
Would you allow our play
to leave no bone unbroken?

Let’s love, like 17.
I’m in love with poisoning.
Only bring your pretty, frightful gifts to me.
Let’s love, and kill like 17 now.

If I weren’t so cold,
we could unfreeze this moment.
And as the world grow old,
We’ll leave no heart unbroken.

Let’s love, like 17.
I’m in love with poisoning.
Only bring your pretty, frightful gifts to me.
Let’s love, and kill like 17 now.

Tomorrow cannot be like this.
And even though it’s such a simple world,
tomorrow cannot be like this.
Tomorrow they will take a stand.
We’ll leave no heart unbroken.

Let’s love, like 17.
I’m in love, with poisoning.
Only bring your pretty, frightful gifts to me
Let’s love, and kill like 17 now.

Let’s love, like 17.
I’m in love with your new screams.
Only bring those pretty, frightful things to me.
Let’s love, and kill like 17 now.

Let’s run, and kill like 17 now.

Let’s love, and kill like 17.

    I'm 33 and was instantly taken back. I was 17. She was 16.
    I'm a dad now. In another life I love.I still remember her.
    I haven't listened to afi in over 10 years then I heard this and it bought it all back.

    If you had a day
    Would you give me a moment?
    Would you allow our play
    To leave no bone unbroken?

    [Bridge]
    Tomorrow cannot be like this

    We’ll leave no heart unbroken


    [Chorus]

  57. Stephy

    why are they all so skinny?

  58. MyBrainCell

    "kill like 17" in gematria (practice of coding numbers into words) KILL = 17. "K" is the 11th letter of the alphabet. "I" is the ninth. "L" is the twelfth letter of the alphabet. Therefore, 11+9+12+12 = 44 another number surrounding death and killing murder. In gematria there is another cipher that applies the rules of numerology where every number is converted into a single digit. Therefore, 11 is 1+1=2.

  59. TheBros2theend
