AFI - Rewind Lyrics



Lie awake, keep your cold eyes closed
Feel it crawl upon your chest
Bear it's teeth and steal your breath
Stay awake as its creeping close
If you're brave enough you'll see
As it stares it looks a lot like me
It looks like me

Though there's no way I will materialize
Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
There's no way to apologize
Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
I float now. We rewind

Draw a line that cannot be crossed
Make a circle out of salt
Knowing it was all your fault
Hide inside, call your doting dogs
As their weak servility
Feeds your emptiness, remember me
In solitude you will sense me

Though there's no way I will materialize
Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
There's no way to apologize
Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
I float now. We rewind

Forever feel it as it's gnawing
Forever crawling, ever crawling
Never caring always smiling
Here to feed when you are falling

There's no way I will materialize
Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
There's no way, you can't apologize
Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
I float now. We rewind
We rewind
I float now, forever
You did this. We rewind

  1. Bobzo

    This song sounds like it could be the opening of an anime ha

  2. Mia Pet

    Lie awake, keep your cold eyes closed
    Feel it crawl upon your chest
    Bear it's teeth and steal your breath
    Stay awake as its creeping close
    If you're brave enough you'll see
    As it stares it looks a lot like me
    It looks like me

    Though there's no way I will materialize
    Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
    There's no way to apologize
    Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
    I float now. We rewind

    Draw a line that cannot be crossed
    Make a circle out of salt
    Knowing it was all your fault
    Hide inside, call your doting dogs
    As their weak servility
    Feeds your emptiness, remember me
    In solitude you will sense me

    Though there's no way I will materialize
    Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
    There's no way to apologize
    Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
    I float now. We rewind

    Forever feel it as it's gnawing
    Forever crawling, ever crawling
    Never caring always smiling
    Here to feed when you are falling

    There's no way I will materialize
    Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
    There's no way, you can't apologize
    Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
    I float now. We rewind
    We rewind
    I float now, forever
    You did this. We rewind

    I always break during in tears when I hear this song. This is how it is like to loose once of your feline babies.... Gremlin was a black Turkish Angora and our neighbors broke in and killed her... She was only 1 year old. This song is by far the best song on this album, maybe AFI's best song ever.

    Puppy Panda

    Can't believe your neighbours would do such a horrific thing! Hope you moved somewhere nicer and sorry for your loss :(

    Justin Wade

    ... what?

  4. Sawbones Quad

    Best song off this album IMO. Feels so personal

    Kuya B

    +Sawbones Quad
    I agree. It's a good album, but this song really shines above the rest. I love it.

    Sawbones Quad

    Plus any song with Jade singing is great!!!! 

  5. Dahvie Vanity

    Fabulous Killjoy

    Fabulous Killjoy

    Ben Angel TRUEEEEEE BODTF is quite possibly the worst thing to happen to the music industry…

    Darwin HK

    Troll stupid.

    Trash Bat

    I hope you suffer. :))

  6. Michael O'Malley

    good shit, enjoying the album

  7. Roberto Miranda

    What a big chorus!  Davey's vocal harmonies are the perfect icing on the cake!

    Sawbones Quad

    +Roberto Miranda I also love when Jade sings in the background during the bridge.

    Roberto Miranda

    @Sawbones Quad What time frame exactly? I just saw your comment. lol

    satanslittlehelper82

    The icing will give me diabetes. Can’t help for more :3

  8. Mastema

    not so sure about this song... I was able to digest just about every song up to this one...

    fadedsun303

    This is the best song on the album. 

    Mastema

    @fadedsun303
     good for you...

    fadedsun303

    @Mastema That doesn't make any sense. 

  9. Wes Broome

    it's the chorus' i find are the off putting factor of AFI's later work. I do like this album though.

  10. Hugo Pérez

    Liracally speaking, best song from the second oart of the album

    Fabulous Killjoy

    Hugo Pérez *lyrically

  11. amylynn72483

    I could so hear my ex singing this to me. I screwed up BIG time. and there is no way to apologize, although i've tried a million times. I miss him so much.

  12. Amanda Myers

    I think its more in line with the theme of the album, a break up. Dwelling on what was and will never be again, and telling the other person that they have to lie in the bed they made. It's obvious in interviews and in listening to the lyrics that Davey has gone through some personal heartache and this is where he draws his motivation.

  13. Sneezedoodle

    This song is beautiful.

    I believe it's a dead person communicating with the person they feel is responsible for their death.

  14. ilovetrinamichaels

    favorite song on the new record, no doubt.
