Black Dahlia Lyrics

I loved you, you made me, hate me.
You gave me, hate, see?.
It saved me and these tears are deadly.
You feel that?
I rip back, every time you tried to steal that.
You feel bad? you feel sad?
I'm sorry, hell no fuck that!
It was my heart,...

    I think that he fell in love and became dependent on the girl but she tears him apart and breaks his heart..... He thought they'd be together forever but now all that's left is painful memories

    They all have different stories in each verse. Johnny: I loved you you made me, hate me you gave me, hate see? It saved me, now these tears are deadly" Basically johnny got heart broken he thought this girl loved him but was stabbing him in the back, "You feel that I rip back every time you try to steal that, You feel bad? You feel sad? I'm sorry hell no f**k that" I can't explain this part still he's talking about her. " it was my heart it was my life. It was my start it was your knife, this strife it dies, this life and these lies" He is basically saying his girl was lying and hurting him mentally. "And these lungs have sung, this song for to long. And its true I hurt to remember, I loved you!" He's saying it hurts for him to remember who hurt him and who did all this stuff. Now Deuce: I've Lost it all fell today it's all the same. I'm sorry oh, (I'm sorry) I'm sorry no (no) and I've been abused I feel so used because of you, I'm sorry no I'm sorry no" Like Johnny's this is also something similar but not a girl. Someone was using him. Being abused and feeling used, he's trying his hardest and people still use him. Now that the chours is out of the way, J-Dog: "I wish I would've quit you, I wish I never missed you, I told you that I love you. Every time I f**k you" talking about a Girl. Saying he wished this never happened at all and hoping he gets over it quick, "The future that we both drew and all the shit we been through thinking about you, the pain just grew and grew, HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TOO ME!" He's saying that he wanted a future till she f***ed up. And now he is wondering how she's doing and he is wondering why she would do this to him. " look at what I made for you. There never was enough in this is what I gave too you, I used to be love struck now I'm just, f***ed up, pull up my selves and see the pattern of my cuts!" He is saying she never thought it was enough, and he used to be in love now he feels all messed up cause of her, its goes back to deuce: "Seems like all we had, is over now, and left to rest, and your tears are dried up now, you just lay without a sound. Seems like all we had is over now. And left to rest and your fears are over now, I can leave with me head down" he's saying he was there from the start, and all the way to the end, helping whoever he's helping. And it goes back to the chorus, but we already know that the ending is just j-dog saying he's love struck messed up pulling my sleeves and see the pattern of hes cuts with deuce saying I'm sorry, there's nothing there, moral of the story, it's about them being hurt wanting futures and just wondering why it hurts, Have a good day everyone who reads this

    On top of all this, I believe that the girl was killed, being various lyrics in the song.

    Personally, I believe that this song channels all the anger of being mistreated in a relationship. Being so low that he hates himself, how the girl feels bad but it is too late for change now.

    Being obsessed with a girl trying to give her his all but it still isn't good enough driving one to insanity. Makes me think about not being good enough for someone no matter how hard that you try or what you give and offer it will never be sufficient.

    I think its how he loved a girl so much that when she left him he wanted to die because she was the world to him. He cuts himself so much it related to the "black dahlia" murder

    J-Dog of Hollywood Undead explained to Artist Direct why the band wrote a song about a girl who was brutally murdered and cut up: "Anybody who has ever been in a relationship and gone through some f---ed up s--t - like we all have - sometimes wants to kill the other person in the worst way possible. People are just scared to say it. So we did a song about how everyone really feels but doesn't want to say."

    I know what this song is about. Everyone's Life that listens to this song. Yes its all about everything you guys are saying but have you ever just stopped in think. "do they make this music for us" everything doesnt have to be about their lives and what happened even though that is mostly the case for most of their songs.

    Its about guy who fell in love, but the girl cheated on him and then killed herself-its not funny.

    It's about a guy who was very in love with a girl and she seemed to be in love with him an they had big plans in life, but she turned around and fucked him over by dumping him and sending him into deep depression.

    A Dahlia is a flower. So a Black Dahlia is basically a symbol for death. I think that they decided to call this song "My Black Dahlia" because this guy gets his heart torn apart and it feels like he's dying.... I can relate to this. SO much it's not even funney.
