Saviour Lyrics

I never meant to be the one who kept you from the dark.
But now I know my wounds are sown because of who you are.
I will take this burden on and become the holy one.
But remember I am human and I am bound to sing this song.

So hear my...

    None of the guys intended to be heroes, they only wanted to play music. This is them accepting their places as Saviours to their fans. BVB is here for you, and doesn't want to lose anymore bridesmaids or ushers. This song was meant for us, use it and not the razor. Music helps with everything, especially BVB's music<3

    As what many others are saying, I am fairly certain that he is saying they didn't know that they kept so many people from hurting them, or that they were actually helping them. when they did, they accepted it and embraced it, saying that they will help you.
    also in an interview, andy said something about how he would rather take someone's pain for himself, so they could feel better. I think that has something to do with this.
    the first time I actually listened to this song I nearly cried because the way he sings it sounds so genuine, it makes you believe that they would be there for you.

    Savior is about bulling suicide depression etc, it is saying "no matter what there is always someone thinking of you"
    I never meant to be the one who kept you from the dark.
    Means that I had no idea i was helping you through your depression.
    But now I know my wounds are sown because of who you are.
    this means but now that I know who you are and what you feel i will not leave your side
    I will take this burden on and become the holy one.
    Means I will stop the people and/or things that are hurting you and i dont care about what people think of me for it
    But remember I am human and I am bound to sing this song.
    Means That I will sing this no matter what

    Hope it helps
    BVB Army 4ever :)

    This song to me is about Jesus as The Living Savior. He's always there and you're never alone. This song is also about God and Saint Nicholas.they have always been there for me and are still there for me. I've gone through really tough times in my life where no person was there for me. But God, Jesus, and Saint Nicholas have never left me. They make me smile and laugh, they motivate me to recover and get out of bed every morning. I truly love them, and songs like Savior by Black Veil Brides remind me of that. <3

    this song is telling kids who have a bad life, or are tempting to do something that they will regret in the future, that you can jump the hurdles no matter how high they are. If you have to go under them. BVB is trying to tell the kinds that the dark side of there mind is not the only part, you will always have a little bit of light no matter how much you have, go to that. Find a healthy alternative that doesn't involve you risking you life. BVB is say with this song that, they are there for you when you truely think that no one is. They may not be able to be there physically, but just by listening to this song, you'll understand how much BVB loves their fans.

    I think its about the fact that people e.g teenagers that get bullied on a regular time for being different because andy always slays that he will always be there for his fans and the band always fights for there fans

    Lyrics tells a soul to not give up and stay alive. Someone cares for them.

    Life is hard but life is a gift.

    Hey kid, never hurt yourself. Talk to your parents. Pray to God to give you strength and guide you to do the right thing.

    Hope you'll find a friend that you can talk to or talk to your siblings.

    Be strong kid.

    I think that savior is saying that even though you are going though a rough time cutting is never the answer. I'm only 11 and I cut multiple times, when I heard Savior I was about to cut but instead I just stopped. I met Andy at warped tour a year ago and he really was there for me

    The black veil brides wrote this song as a way to tell their fans that no matter what they are dealing with, they will always care about you. The chorus states 'so hear my voice' meaning listen to his words and believe them. 'Remind you not to bleed' is talking about the fans who are struggling with self harm, mostly cutting themselves. Andy is saying that he doesn't want anyone from the bvb army hurting in anyway. This song is gorgeous and is basically Black veil brides telling all the 'lonely ones' that you need to stay strong, that they are there for you and care, and that you should be yourself no matter what.

    BVB AT FOREVER!!!!!!

    It simply means that he'll be there by your side through everything. It may not be physically but mentally. Through his songs.

    I think that the song Saviour is about a person who has had a horrible life so far until they met their match or lover whatever you want to call them. Now the person is trying to fight a darkness within them but they're not alone now so they stay alive.

    I believe this sony is BVB saying "we never meant to help anyone with bullying or depression etc., but now that we have, we'll always be here for any of our fans"

    I think that Savior is a song that Black Veil Brides created specifically towards the subject of bullying and deppresion . I think it's saying that because you like Black Veil Brides and that you are depressed,you are not alone ''So hear my voice remind you not to bleed.I'm here...'' it's Black Veil Brides' way of saying don't cut yourself you have us.
    ''So here I write my lullaby to all the lonely ones'' is another way of saying you may be lonely now but there's always going to be someone there thinking of you.

    ''When I hear your cries praying for life
    I will be there,When I hear your cries praying for light,I will be there'' is a way of saying don't commit suicide,I love you.
