Alexisonfire - Adelleda Lyrics




This is really only all we have:
(Bury all of me)
Daytime. Twilight. Pitch black. Night light.
(Before I have a chance)
Coldest eyes, and the softest touch.
(To open my eyes and see you laughing.)
Daytime. Twilight. Pitch black. Night light.
These typed letters.
(Is this all we have?)
Beneath me.
(Or is this all just twilight beyond the skyline)
Fuck with these buttons and knobs long enough
(Blinding me)
And maybe things will... turn out fine.

Hide behind your crystal screen
And blow kisses at me.
(Remember what we said wouldn't happen?)
Go.
Write your name on my chest in kerosene.
Spark a match, and you won't be cold again.

This is really only all we have:
Daytime. Twilight. Pitch black. Night light.

Coldest eyes.
You had the coldest eyes, and the softest touch.

Daytime. Twilight. Pitch black.
Light!

Gag and... destroy me.
Gag and... destroy me.

(Sorry I didn't hear you)
I have a
(I was busy dying in the corner)
Collection of thunder that I stole
(Those three words)
I stole. That I stole.
(Destroyed every inch of me yet you keep...)
From your windowsill.
(...Speaking)
Stole... right through your windowsill.

Alexisonfire Adelleda Comments
  1. kawaii_shawty

    This song takes me way back, best and most underated aof song

  2. conor o'brien

    This is their best song plain and simple. This album as a whole is a masterpiece, but this fucking song just has so much raw emotion that no other song of theirs, or any band for that matter, captures. It's a beautiful tragedy.

    William James

    the best band and music on the world

  3. Jay Dallas

    Amazimg how they progessed from this to The Northern.

  4. Daddy

    this makes my heart boil and swell until i feel as if i can't breathe anymore. this fucking band. i love it as deeply as i wish to be loved.

  5. as i introspect

    this whole album is so damn good.

  6. Bobby G.

    Till this very day I find it amazing how a band could make every single song they’ve ever made amazing. I really couldn’t think of another band that has accomplished that. Not even Metallica, which is one of my favorites. They have so many great songs but so many shitty ones. Alexisonfire doesn’t have any. I listen to music from the late 60s-early 2000s with the exception of asking Alexandria. And really couldn’t think of a band equivalent to Alexisonfire. Actually nirvana is the only one I can think of. Which is my favorite band next to Alexis. But even then there’s like 1 or two from nirvana I don’t like. I remember when alexis last album came out I said wow, this is it. Made a few albums with every song being great. A piece of me broke the day they said they were taking a indefinite hiatus. And hurt even more when they said they’re coming back for a few shows. None of which were near me in the north eastern seaboard of the United States.

  7. Julien Prégent

    Still so good 15 years later!

  8. patrick grondines

    day time twilight pitch black night light, that was the best part ever!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Alia Como

    this album is still my favorite album of all time....these songs make my soul happy

  10. soft-pastel emery paper tutorials

    Great album forever!

  11. Daniel Ko

    LoVeUUU°°--°°

  12. Dan Ricords

    love 'em!!

  13. TeaL

    This is one of those bands I think I SHOULD like but can't get into. I like bands like Thursday, Silverstein, Senses Fail, and Underoath. I guess it's their screams that aren't appealing to me.

    Nathan Childress

    George's screams definitely sound as painful as anyone's, but I like it. Try "White Devil", that song is fucking heavy, and his screaming makes it

  14. Paul Lebel

    Hide behind your crystal screen
    And blow kisses at me

  15. Renard Monaie

    i love the outro it reminds me of that faith no more song

  16. Renard Monaie

    there is not a wack song on this album

  17. Monolithic

    2016 and I just figured out the root of why I think white dress shirts and plaid skirts are hot as fuck.
    This CD is one of the first I bought with my own money. Throwback of the decade and then some.... I bought this 14 years ago!

  18. Lord Zebra

    fuck yes!!!A non remastered version.you sir deserve a like for sure

  19. James Hodson

    i always thought this song was worthy of a screamo tag, but most would consider it just harsh post-hardcore mixed with alternative metalcore (of the 90s, of course) but i'm deadset that this is a soft skramz classic

    evil snox

    i put it in a melodic hardcore playlist

    James Hodson

    @jared _ hm no i don't think that works

  20. Mitch Baker

    Lol dying in the corner?? lol um emo much?

  21. Richs

    terrible just kills the song

  22. Richs

    no wonder why dallas dumped the scremo dummy

    James Hodson

    they're back bitch

  23. ilovesasukeandleto

    if anyone has any suggestions for other bands that sound like alexisonfire im all ears :)

    Tom Ace

    ilovesasukeandleto dance gavin dance is the closest I've come

  24. Thofmans

    That outtro....

  25. B O N N I E

    My kid will be raised listening to this self-titled album. One of the few post-hardcore bands that is not totally fucking gay and poser. This album is a masterpiece of its genre.

    ilovesasukeandleto

    +Andy R Alexisonfire are my fave band due to unique sound and only a few bands can emulate their sound imo. as far as i know the best band for this is DGD (maybe fall of troy?). if anyone has any suggestions for other bands that sound like alexisonfire im all ears :)

    ilovesasukeandleto

    @Andy R ahh i followed johnny from DGD to emarosa so already know about them. anyone else?

    ilovesasukeandleto

    Ok will check out thanks☺

  26. Dylan Naidu

    This cut so deep.

  27. imperial guard

    most underrated song

    disorder581

    +imperial guard indeed!!!!

    jbrewking

    someone stole my sweetroll help?

    imperial guard

    +jbrewking stop right there criminal scum

    jbrewking

    +imperial guard fine ill pay up

  28. I am Ghostie

    The piano instrumental is simply beautiful. This album will always be a masterpiece.

    Project Pat29

    I am Ghostie agreed

  29. mshelton155

    It's about a girl and a guy in which one wanted the other more in turn leaving the one that cared too much severely depressed in w/e relationship the two had

  30. ShadowCrowX

    It's 2015 and I'm still too busy dying in the corner.

    Lloyd

    same man, same.

  31. viktr estebn

    still hurts so bad

  32. Mikey

    Over the years many alexisonfire songs have been my favourite, this is the song I always go back to.

    Kennedy curse is also a banger.

    Daddy

    i fucking unwaveringly agree

  33. Ronald Andrade

    that fucking bass doe

  34. Danny Schiesser

    not sure what all the hype about this song is, it's one of their worst imo

    Leda9393

    it's really something you have to feel rather than understand

    Danny Schiesser

    @Leda9393 as is most music, just not feeling this song

  35. sean dough

    My favourite song of Alexisonfire. Just a beutiful of amzing guitar and drums and such hardcore raw emotion! I'll never tire of this song

    ShadowCrowX

    back when the AoF site had a message board, I played a hand in deciphering Dallas' lyrics :P what you see is part of my contribution (not the whole song just some of it)

    Daddy

    your service is greatly appreciated

  37. M John

    THESE ARE THE PROPER LYRICS!
    since we're in woe in your window
    daytime, twilight, pitch black, /YOUR LIFE\
    boneified, whether you'll die cut..
    daytime, twilight, pitch black, my LIEE
    but hey... BYE!!
    fuck with me, swelter in the love that comes with HEY/pain/me because woe
    dumb will fly
    left behind done with the way, we'll both kill some with me

    GO

    what's your name? blood we'll take it.. YOU WILL SEE
    spark a match and you won't.
    because of your..
    since we'll be woed and you're way out,
    daytime, twilight, pitch black, twilight

    ...

    WHYY!?!?!?
    kill me | destroy me | get right | take my fate
    i will run | you will die | you'll die die die
    until i want for your soul, burn away
    don't sell, DIuhg
    [br.athe]
    wait soldier wait don't tell

    Dave Raffy

    None of this band's lyrics make any sense.

    M John

    they're possessed by demons talking to the government, illuminati and stupid fucks that he's delt with.


    he's insane

    BleakMindedness

    Those are definitely not the lyrics. They might be what you heard, but they're not the actual lyrics to the song, which I think is pretty obvious.

    theonlytrinityever r

    First of all, those are NOT THE PROPER LYRICS AT ALL!
    Don't write that if you're going to just try to decipher screaming and singing at the same time. You clearly don't even own this album. 
    The amount of stupid fucks that feel the need to post their ignorant opinions makes me seriously question why I am not yet a serial killer. 
    Please trust my lyrics as I bought this album when it came out and learned the lyrics from the inside of the album cover while I listened to it over and over, and have seen them eight times. I'm not exaggerating, up front for the majority, met them twice. I also have the watch out! cover girl tattooed on my back. This is one of my favourite songs and your not only ignorance, but your need to share that bullshit with others as fact, REALLY pisses me off.
    If you're going to pretend to be intelligent at least do your fucking research. 

    I'll post them in a minute separately after I calm down, smoke a popper and listen to this amazing song again.

  38. LFCJFT96YNWA1892

    Can't wait to blast this in the nursing home in 60 years, hardcore dancing with other old people in our wheelchairs

    Zachary Jollimore

    LFCJFT96YNWA1892 that's my life goal right there. I'll be the 65 year old guy in the moshpit

    Flavio Sanchez Zavalla

  39. DowntownBattleHill

    Watch Out!, though!

  40. IAmLiamAnarchy

    Crisis, though!

  41. Dcon

    I would assume a 70 year old would have more musical knowledge by that point than to call this "screamo"

  42. DowntownBattleHill

    Is this really
    only all
    we have!

  43. Yesss this cd is really something special, always brings me back.

  44. timayyNYC

    its funny because I think about that too, can you imagine yourself at 70 years old listening to this song and feeling the same as you did when you heard this song 50 years ago? It just blows my mind when I think about it.

    "grandpa...what type of music are you listening to right now"
    "oh you wouldn't know...its called screamo"

  45. Echosoblivion

    best ever.

  46. LazerBabies

    William James

  62. imaghostya

    this shit reminds me of driving from my high school to technical school on the 60 from phoenix to mesa (arizona) and stopping to get filibertos while i smoke a bowl in the parking lot before computer repair class. just the opening chords to this song strike me as the time my girlfriend and i were hitting a really rough spot before breaking up. fucken nostalgia

  63. SheilaghPat

  64. Ben Sladden

    Self titled and Watch out are by far the best Alexis albums!

  68. Jacob Breen

    Oh god its so nice. The piano's beautiful

  69. mrmilkoil

    They grew appropriately, I will never forget my youth as long as this music is still being played it's like the vintage nostalgic music our parents listened to from the seventies and eighties. Well this is my vintage nostalgic music from my youth. Love the end of this song more than any other album combined though.

  70. Agent Orange

    3:35-4:02 = perfection
