AFI - No Resurrection Lyrics



I wanted to save you
Give breath that escaped you
But you stayed down (stayed down)
To resuscitate you
Breath my breath back into you
You stayed out (stayed out)

I wanted to shake you
To scream to awaken you
You stayed down (stayed out)

In your slumber you saw everything
Everything but me

Why must we stop?
Why must we stop now?
Why must you crush our glow?
Don't you know that heaven is slow?
Don't remake our heaven

I wanted to save us
Wept words that escaped us
But you stayed out (You shut them out)
I fell down to face you
To find you were wakeful
And you'd forced me out, I'm nothing now

In your slumber you saved everything
Everything but me

Why must we stop?
Why must we stop now?
Why must you crush our glow?
Don't you know that heaven is slow?
Don't remake our heaven

Why must we stop?
Why must we stop now?
Why must you crush our glow?

Don't you know that heaven is slow?
Don't erase our heaven

AFI No Resurrection Comments
  1. G Prime

    I would have picked this over "Hope You Suffer" as a lead single

  2. RAVEN

    What exactly is this song about

    silentcatalyst

    RAVEN letting a toxic relationship die.

  3. greenghost3737

    This is different but sooo much afi at the same time

  4. Mia Pet

    I wanted to save you
    Give breath that escaped you
    But you stayed down (stayed down)
    To resuscitate you
    Breath my breath back into you
    You stayed out (stayed out)

    I wanted to shake you
    To scream to awaken you
    You stayed down (stayed out)

    In your slumber you saw everything
    Everything but me

    Why must we stop?
    Why must we stop now?
    Why must you crush our glow?
    Don't you know that heaven is slow?
    Don't remake our heaven

    I wanted to save us
    Wept words that escaped us
    But you stayed out (You shut them out)
    I fell down to face you
    To find you were wakeful
    And you'd forced me out, I'm nothing now

    In your slumber you saved everything
    Everything but me

    Why must we stop?
    Why must we stop now?
    Why must you crush our glow?
    Don't you know that heaven is slow?
    Don't remake our heaven

    Why must we stop?
    Why must we stop now?
    Why must you crush our glow?

    Don't you know that heaven is slow?
    Don't erase our heaven

    WOW Mais c'est quoi ce putain de chef-d'oeuvre !!

  6. Kaylyn Zoe

    I've seen tons of comments about how Crash Love was too bright and too poppy. I have to completely disagree. Crash Love was much darker and brash than this. I prefer Crash Love over this. This is a great album, but some of the songs drag a little too much. Decemberunderground & Sing The Sorrow are my favorites.

  7. Ralphie H

    Love this song

  8. Peter Jones

    I enjoy it.

  9. Roberto Miranda

    I LOVE THIS SONG. Some things cannot be helped.  In my case, it was a friendship based around the temporary highs of drugs.  Little by little, things got worse and it took me near rock bottom to cut the shit out.  It has been six months since I've been away from psychedelics and the wrong crowd of miserable people who still swear that they know enlightenment inside and out.  Thank you Davey, Jade, Hunter, and Adam for growing as people and musicians and being a positive influence that sobriety is the way to go.  You guys have managed to create an album that once again does not tickle anyone's fancy but yours; and the altruism in Havok's emotion-driven lyrics could not have been any better this time around.

    THROUGH OUR BLEEDING WE ARE ONE!

    robert eaton

    That is so beautiful

  10. dexter darkly

    love it.... not a rehash of old shit...  shows growth and development. album is solid.  

  11. RIchard Crown

    This sounds like Techno Funeral Music. It is kind of ironic, because I been hoping AFI will come out with an album that sounds like their old stuff. But today I am giving up, the AFI that began is gone and will never return. I don't know how you go from playing " I wanna get a Mohawk" to this. Of course bands grow and change, but this is a completely different band. I am not saying they sold out, because to be honest they would of made more money playing the old punk style they had.

    Ralphie H

    AFI is not mainstream rock and never will be. This is a more mature version of their old material.

    Fabulous Killjoy

    *would have

    Ben Angel

    How many people do you know in their 40's singing about a mohawk that their mom won't let them have? Your comment is quite contradicting.

  12. straight edge.

    Don't remake our heaven !

  13. CriticalHit149

    I was thinking he was saying 'Why must you crush our bones?" l
    Like a jack and the beanstalk refernce :3

    Awesome Album. I want more than half these songs to be singles, lol. Especially Rewind..

  14. TeenageDeathGirl13

    " In your slumber you saw everything . . . everything but me . . . " Oh Davey <3

  15. Jacob Prock

    Love this song... my second favorite, after "The Face Beneath the Waves"
