Kiss It Better Lyrics
And he lays on his bed.
Covers his head and closes his eyes.
He sees a smoking gun,
And the coward he ran.
And in his arms is the bleeding,
Love of his life.
And she cries,
Kiss it all better,
I’m not ready to...
This is song is about a man who's girlfriend is murdered and she's telling him that if he kisses her wound better, she'll be okay, trying to make him feel better. But she dies and he sees the gun that killed her and he goes to find the man that did it and get revenge for killing the girl he loved. He finds the man and shoot him and now he's in jail. My favorite part is "Now he sits behind prison bars, 25 to life and she's not in his arms. He couldn't bring her back with a bullet to the heart of the back of a man who tore his world apart" That is so powerful, but it's saying how he was put in jail and he couldn't bring his girlfriend back to life by killing the man that killed his girl, and tore his world apart.

This probably wont make sense but whatever:
This woman is with an abusive partner but is too scared to leave him, fortunately a friend of hers comes to the rescue and they run off together, eventually falling in love. Happily ever after until the night before the wedding. She gets a call from said abusive partner telling something along the lines of "If you show up at that wedding I'll kill you." Albeit a little anxious she ignores him and shows up at the wedding, ready to marry the one who saved her. The middle of the ceremony, and the doors bust open and HE comes in. In his hand is a pistol fully loaded. He raises the gun and shoots her in the chest. He tosses the gun down and walks out of the church. Her fiancé held her in his arms and she told him to kiss it better because she didn't want to die and that it wasn't his fault because she had chosen to ignore the death threat. The police somehow don't catch the killer and the widow takes matters into his own hands. He sets out with the gun that was used to kill his lover and the magazine fully loaded. he found the man and the murderer ran trying to escape. the widow raised the gun and fired a single shot hitting him square in the heart. Said widow is arrested for the murder and sentenced to 25-life in prison.

This isn't the intended meaning:
With a personal view of this song,I feel as though it's about a woman who is going through a hard time and she simply wants her s/o to show her love.But then when things get so hard that she can't pull herself out on her own,she tells him to "kiss" the surface.Hoping that the simple act could help her open her eyes to the love from him.Maybe she's so far gone that it's not worth fighting for anymore.She told him it's not his fault.She doesn't want him to feel hurt,as she does.Yet after everything,he ignores the "kiss it better" and he tries to find excuses to why she's struggling.He picks it(the gun)up and takes it into his own hands.So that he can "avenge" what's happening to her.But that got him to the position of "25-life and she's not in his arms".He didn't listen to her.And that led to him loosing her; possibly forever.
Overall,if a female is going through a hard time,it doesn't have to be as hard as men see it.Sometimes it takes a simple kiss to make it all better.Show her love.Don't force her to see it by making heroic actions– Allow her to see what's already there.

This song in my opinion is about a man's girlfriend who gets shot,and is dying in her boyfriends arms telling him that she want him to kiss it all better cause she's not ready to die yet. After the mans girlfriend dies he see's the gun the murderer used he picks it up and kills the murderer as revenge. The song/lyrics tell the story of how the man got in prison. That's what I think anyway.

The love of a man's life is shot, and she dies in his arm. The murder dropped the gun, and the man avenges his love by killing her murderer and then he goes to prison.

The girl in the song dies by murder in her lover's arms. He goes, avenges her death by killing her murder's, and end up in prison.

I don't know the true interpretation. But since I found out that this is an Christian band and I am a non-chistian who grew up surrounded by christians I have a pretty good few on those people and it seems to me that she is strugling with something. Its something that I know my family is struggling alot with to. This is about two people who are perfectly happy and something so terrible happens to them that it destroys both of there lives. And somethings tells me that she is questioning why this is happening to these good people. How can something so terrible happen to them. Its a question that always remain when your christian because in there book it says that there god is all loving but there are still things happening to people who are the last to deserve the things they get.
