Black Veil Brides: The Mortician's Daughter Meaning
The Mortician's Daughter Lyrics
I sing this song at funerals
These lyrics heard a thousand times
A baby boy you've held so tightly
this pain it visits almost nightly
Missing hotel beds
I feel your touch.

Andy wrote it about his girlfriend at the time, Scout Taylor Compton, because her dad was a mortician and along with that when she was questioned about if she weren't an actress what would she do she said she'd "be a mortician like her father". When he was on the road with BVB and Scout was filming they were in "missing hotel beds" and were missing each other. The end of the song is about how they are finally back together, "I'm home again".

I really love this song...It has a special meaning to it ...reminds me of how I used to love a guy and left him becoz I decided to live my way down a different path ...I promise him that I will get back to him one day but in the end he was already in a relationship and Yeah Its amazing how Love can be sometimes...But For me its better to alone ....But eyy This song really brought unnotice tears to my eyes ...haha!...Although It's sad when u used to love a person and in the end that person slipped like sand through ur fingers...
This song in particular was dedicated to the lead singers current girlfriend, Scout Taylor. The song is written about the band going away constantly and about the impact on the couples relationship. I see this because Scout's father was a mortician, and their relationship was still going at the time the song was created.

The song is about Andy's ex, Scout Taylor. He wrote it when he was 15 and moved from Ohio to California to pursue his dreams. When he came back, it turned out Scout cheated on him. So he now dedicates the song to his fans.
So, in general the song is about loving someone, no matter what or how far you are.
And yes, the title is "The Mortician's Daughter" because Scout's father is a mortician.

This is the only song that makes me cry and smile at the same time."The Mortician's Daughter" isn't just a title. It's Scout Taylor Compton whom Andy dated for six years. Her father is a mortician obviously. Andy wrote this song while his band was on tour and he was away w/ her girlfriend. He misses her so much so he decided to make this song to express his love for her.Yeah, that's the summary of it. The most beautiful lyrics of this song tho is "one million years and i will say your name i love you more than i can ever scream"..damn! that got me so hard..but sadly this song has lost it's meaning when Andy and Scout was supposed to get back together. She was even there when he broke his ribs and she helped him heal. She never left his side even if they're no longer together. But yeah, they were planning to get back together again but Andy and Juliet suddenly became together. Scout was hurt and heartbroken so she left. That's got nothing to do with the lyrics but idgaf :p

It's about scout but it can be twisted to fit lots of stories...

This song was written in 2006. Andy was in love with Scout Taylor-Compton. She is a mortician's daughter.

Andy wrote this about Scout and he was deeply in love with her. But something happened between them, Scout cheated on him we think (it was something with cheating and lying) and Andy says its about his fans because he loves his fans.

Andy's really in love with this girl, and he has to leave but he promises that someday, they will both be together again, no matter how long the wait is
It's amazing what people would do for love, i'll wait as long as i need to to see my man again

It's about his ex gf how he loves her and he had to leave her and regrets but he promises he will see her again.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
