AFI - Heart Stops Lyrics



Oh, my pretty precious stone
Just left me in ribbons
With my heart sliced carefully
You wear it like a cheerful bow

There's a light that you now adore
But the bringer is cast down
I have never been before
So unhappy in my whole life

Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
You were my first faith, made of lies like all the others
Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
I found my last light but it died like all the others (all the others)

Oh, my painful fatal flaw
May your cruelty find you
May the scars you left in me
Dig into you twice as deep

Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
You were my first faith, made of lies like all the others
Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
I found my last light but it died like all the others

I know you'll look away while I'm crying
I know you'll wear that bow with a smile
Everything I gave you, it was wasted
Love further down, adore that denial

I stopped feeling numb, now I have to be
Because I trusted you I cannot trust another
Heart stops beating, what was brutality?
You were my last light so I'll die like all the others

Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
You were my first faith, made of lies like all the others, all the others

AFI Heart Stops Comments
  1. Blade

    I still can't listen to this song without bawling my eyes out. You can feel his pain. I'm almost positive this whole album is about his ex, Brittany.

  2. Ania Lopatiuk

    I think,i understand the lyrics

  3. Austin AnnihilateHer

    Dedicated this to my ex wife years ago...she did not appreciate it 🤔

  4. Jester Godfield

    Its 2019 and im still here, but in truth I feel like im still stuck somewhere back in 2008.

  5. Miriam Chávez

    I can't imagine how much Davey suffered. Those lyrics, literally, are brutal

  6. Destiny Staggs

    Still listening to this in 2018 ❤

  7. Mia Pet

    Oh, my pretty precious stone
    Just left me in ribbons
    With my heart sliced carefully
    You wear it like a cheerful bow

    There's a light that you now adore
    But the bringer is cast down
    I have never been before
    So unhappy in my whole life

    Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
    You were my first faith, made of lies like all the others
    Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
    I found my last light but it died like all the others (all the others)

    Oh, my painful fatal flaw
    May your cruelty find you
    May the scars you left in me
    Dig into you twice as deep

    Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
    You were my first faith, made of lies like all the others
    Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
    I found my last light but it died like all the others

    I know you'll look away while I'm crying
    I know you'll wear that bow with a smile
    Everything I gave you, it was wasted
    Love further down, adore that denial

    I stopped feeling numb, now I have to be
    Because I trusted you I cannot trust another
    Heart stops beating, what was brutality?
    You were my last light so I'll die like all the others

    Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
    You were my first faith, made of lies like all the others, all the others

    Obviously he was involved with a narcissist...

    I prefer Crash Love over this. It has a much darker undertone while somehow holding a light at the end of the tunnel. Crash Love reminded me more of Sing The Sorrow & Decemberunderground. This sounds like just a whole new sound

    No One

    Every one of their new albums gets a new sound, it seems. I discovered them when Sing the Sorrow came out and then loved all their new stuff. They seem to change with every album, even in the beginning. I enjoy a band that sounds different every time, yet you can tell it's still them. This was much darker than normal, but I loved this album all the same. :)

    Kaylyn Zoe

    @Liz ard
    I couldn't agree more.

  10. Sawbones Quad

    Hated Crash Love, but LOVE burials, mainly because of all the songs being relatable for me esp. this one.

    Adrian

    Why you hate crash love? :(

  11. Dennis M

    The last line sounds like "you were my first mate made of lies like all the others".

  12. mimilovesfish

    "There's a light that you now adore
    But the bringer is cast down
    I have never been before
    So unhappy in my whole life" :'(

  13. Dwayne Millz

    Such a great album just 👂



  14. esme nemhain

    este disco esta muuuy aburrido nada que ver con los anteriores :( 

    Miriam Chávez

    Este disco es lo que vivió Davey.

    Leslie Vargas

    Si no has vivido algo parecido o no tienes empatia, es muy dificil que entiendas por que el disco es asi. Y muy dificil que comprendas el trasfondo de cada cancion.

  15. Kristi Alvarado

    Beautiful :')

  16. AmericanMetalhead100

    I miss Sing the Sorrow.

  17. jonathan wells

    This song reminds me of the past I lived. When I wanted nothing at all. Life seemed lost and this song reminds me of how to get over the shit that binds you down so bad. AFI fucking rocks, this song is great!

  18. athoughtriotx

    I remember watching an interview about this album, Davey said he was so disappointed with himself that he couldn't separate his music from his personal life and it just ended up on this album. This song really relays that message. One of my favorite songs from the album. 

    mimilovesfish

    I know right?

  19. darkangelik

    Fave song off the album by far!

  20. Mastema

    lots of late 80s early 90s influence on this one...

    Samuel Vondork II

    I totally feel that

  21. DarkCode

    awesome album ! 

  22. Du Ty

    Anyone know what's said at 1:17 ?

    Du Ty

    +BlackMamba I mean that kinda echo sound that follows 'all the others".

  23. Scott Nancarrow

    There's a part of me that really doesn't want to love this song... but I really do love it... my 13 year old self can go fuck itself if it thinks otherwise...

    Wes Broome

    it's the chorus.

  24. Gabriela

    Andy!!!

    Samantha Darko

    Did you find AFI because of Andy???

  25. Kevin Ashby

    Great song! Has a Matt Skiba feel about it, which is always good. :)

  31. CAPTAINDEGENERATIONX

    Fabulous Killjoy

    CAPTAINDEGENERATIONX yay for you. I’m okay with that, but I like The Art of Drowning, Decemberunderground and the Blood album best. You’re so awesome for wanting to listen to that. Good for you 🙄

  36. TheDanimator's Channel

    Probably my favorite off of burials from what Ive heard.
    2:09 Is my favorite part.
    The way davey says "smile" is awesome.

  37. Erik Haven

    just wow...they're music has grown so much and as always is so incredible..however i'm personally so upset that Davey was so upset and I hope he was able to get out of it.

  38. edfd28
