Alexisonfire - Side Walk When She Walks Lyrics




Dressed to kill, you look so right
I am drunk with lust tonight
Your wounds are opening wide
And they might be just my size

Now I'm afraid of open water
But I often bathe in sin
Let's be honest, you know you shouldn't bother
'Cuz with me, it's impossible to win

Dressed to kill, you look so right
I am drunk with lust tonight
Your wounds are opening wide
And they might be just...

There was always
Warmth between us
There was always
Warmth between us

Dressed to kill, you look so right
I am drunk with lust tonight
Your wounds are opening wide
And they might be just my size
Just my size, just my size
Just my size, just my size

Just my size, just my size
Just my size, just my size
Just my size.

Alexisonfire Side Walk When She Walks Comments
  1. Albert Twangle

    I know how I’ll die; it’ll be from drowning. It’s crazy but the truth. I literally avoid all bodies of water because I know this as a fact, but It’ll still end me. It’s a paradox but I know this is the truth

  2. No Way

    nostalgia....shit

  3. Ashley Rodriguez

    Dude , this was 1 of my most cherished songs from my emo stage in the beginning of High School in 2006 😭💙

  4. Christopher Roth

    This song gives us a strong clue of what sound Dallas can fire out when the going gets LOUD and _hard_. It"s good, so good. 1:16

  5. Jeff Delorey

    going friday night to see these guys

  6. Power Lifter

    I was having a bad day, and this song was the cure!

  7. Daniel Gordon

    I got into core and other types of metal in maybe 2008(I'm now 23). I had just missed the real boom of melodic and emotional singing and melody. My 2019 roommate is 10 years older than me and we help each other out by sharing the aux chord in the car. I'm super thankful. ALEXISONFIRE is one of my favorites by far. Another is Across Five Aprils. Love it.glad to see others love it too.

  8. Stewart Bumstead

    Still Incredible.. Alexisonfire where my favorite band.. And still are today, I cant move on..

  9. Mark Power

    I bought this album as a CD (remember those?) and I’m still here listening in 2019. Favourite band of all time.

  10. Irma Vep

    This will always be my favorite song by them

  11. Taryn Roske

    Dressed to kill you look so right, I am drunk with lust tonight <3

  12. Lauren Armstrong

    I think there songs usually have really good lyrics, but I can’t understand them
    (Still great though)

  13. Glenn Barnette

    This reminds me of every ex, lol

  14. Angelina Sheppard

    I keep rewinding "now I'm afraid of open water" part

  15. Cursed Chris

    Nostalgic feels come rushing back so much

  16. Sonny Ankau

    fuck i miss this band lol

  17. trevor hansard

  23. October Sunrise

    Dressed to kill, you look so right
    I am drunk with lust tonight
    Your wounds are opening wide
    And they might be just my size
    Now I'm afraid of open water
    But I often bathe in sin
    Let's be honest, you know you shouldn't bother
    Cause with me, it's impossible to win
    Dressed to kill, you look so right
    I am drunk with lust tonight
    Your wounds are opening wide
    And they might be just
    There was always
    Warmth between us
    There was always
    Warmth between us
    Dressed to kill, you look so right
    I am drunk with lust tonight
    Your wounds are opening wide
    And they might be just my size
    Just my size, just my size
    Just my size, just my size
    Just my size, just my size
    Just my size, just my size
    Just my size.

    SlowTickLuke

  24. Tony Danilovich

    One of the best bands in the world. Please come back to save music!

  25. WackJobRob

    Cursed Chris

  28. Lusy Darliing

    Gosh I love this song so much

  29. Dan Generoux

    Alexisonfire stands the test of time

  30. Hanna Lopez

    This band is genius and so advanced for the time that it was. You got your melodic hardcore, a little bit of math emo...they pretty much fused sounds that are surfacing or evolving within most post-hardcore bands these days. Fucken mint.

  31. Dan

    perfect song for when you love her but she doesn't love you back

    Daniel Gordon

    Obviously 2 years late, but I'm feeling this comment man. The hurt is real lol. Hope you are well in this future.

  32. Matt Bafaro

  33. zombieci

    Never gets old

    Geno Oj

    zombieci

    Geno Oj Getting old is inevitable I've made peace with it.Ha!Good on you for having such great memories

    Geno Oj

    zombieci I have as well😄 but yeah was amazing meeting 1 of my favorite bands but that's not the best experience have much more amazing 1 I'll never ever forget 😄😢

  34. steeelo

    the ending is amazing

  35. Ooz

    The duality of Alexisonfire is what makes them great in my opinion.

  36. selurdeerbetah92

    many nights just stayed up with this album on repeat...this song and happiness by the kilowatt were probably my faves...I was young when this came out I'm 24 now still listen to this album repetitively

    Jay Frost

    selurdeerbetah92 lol, I'm 34 and listening to this a decade later. Stood the test of time.

  37. Zephyr

    brings back so much memories

  38. Brandonsaurus64

    Being American, I only just discovered AoF about 4 years ago. They quickly became 1 of my 2 very favorite bands

    Mdxfiend

    what's being american have to do with it?

    Brandonsaurus64

    Jason Yingling easy pal, I know they have a passionate US fan base but the band has been open about their struggle to find the kind of success they wanted to in America

    Daddy

    what's the other favorite band ? for me it's ajj, deftones, alexis, and underoath .

    Jeff Bell

    What does being American have to do with it? Lmao

  39. justin d

    they took this album off spotify. its total bullshit

  40. MrRegor23

    I'm 33 now and not afraid of open water anymore but still can't win...

  41. TheHilikus89

    Even now I am still really impressed with those drums

    Zephyr

    @TheHilikus89 mine to i even hitch hiked with my dad tho cali to seatle in honor of him it was one hell of a hitch hike my ankle was even broken

    TheHilikus89

    @xZephy Sounds incredible I wish to the same at some point but on my own and possibly in Australia.

    Zephyr

  66. PoppingPOPcans

    @mylifeisaverage1 it's alexis on fire... but at first i though alex is on fire so i was like ooh sweet alright. cuz my name is alex...

  67. Patrick Singleton

    This song always reminds me of standing on the top deck of a ferry back in 2007. It was night, the stars and moon were out, but there was a thick blanket of fog surrounding the boat. I was up there for about an hour, just to sit in the chilling winds, think to myself, and listen to Alexisonfire.

  68. eddy full

    i gotta admit when i first heard this album i wasn't too keen on it, especially compared to crisis, however it has grown on me sooo much, and not only is it my favourite alexisonfire album, but i think it is one of my favourite ever albums, truly epic

  69. Laura OH

    alexisonfire best posthardcore band ever!
    and i fucking love dallas green and george pettit.
    but dallas is GOD in human.

  70. Hyperion004

    It always takes me a good few listens to appreciate just how good each Alexisonfire song is, but they always grow on me, every single one.

  71. Rurisk1984

    Yeah me too It sounded more punkish then their previous albums but it was still really good you just have listen it more then one time

  72. LifeLineXx

    This song is devastatingly lovely. Love this band.

  73. Michaelridesabike

    I'm not gonna lie. I didnt like AOF really all that much until I heard this song and album. Now I love EVERYTHING. I dont know what happend. Maybe I realized I was a dumbass for not liking them. I've loved Dallas for awhile though. hahaaa

    Lee McMullan

    same thing happened to me lol

  74. ianward88

    Dallas orginally wrote this for City and Colour which would have been amazing but still nothing makes a great song sound better than Alexis playin it

  75. Warsaw

    Good Song
