Song Lyrics #16 - Love Bites


This week I'm looking at Love Bites by Halestorm. First of all, I have to say that Lzzy Hale is a monster vocalist- that girl can sing. The band is named after and her brother the drummer. I first came across Lzzy Hale singing with Lindsey Stirling- I think?- a few years ago. And while Halestorm has a lot of good songs, this one might be my favorite just for the sheer aggressiveness and energy of it. I mean, judge for yourself lol. 

This is also unabashedly a hard rock song, so don't be turned off by the beginning. Unless you hate hard rock, in which case- you might want to haha. Seriously though I think it's pretty clear what this one is about. And if you weren't awake before the song started, you will be shortly!        

So what do you think?   


Lyrics

Don't listen what your girlfriend says 
She reads those magazines
That say you failed the test
You don't have what she needs 
I slither like a viper 
And get you by the neck 
I know a thousand ways to help you forget about her 

That bitch can eat her heart out 
Love bites, but so do I, so do I
Love bites, but so do I, so do I
Love bites

My lips are pale and vicious 
You're foaming at the mouth
You've suffered in the darkness
I'll suck the pain right out 
So come and taste the reason 
I'm nothing like the rest 
I kiss you in a way you'll never forget about me 

That chick can eat her heart out 
Love bites, but so do I, so do I
Love bites, but so do I, so do I, so do I

It checks you in and kicks you down
And chews you up and spits you out
It messes with your sanity by twisting all your thoughts around 
They say it's blind they say it waits but every time it seals your fate
And now it's got you by the balls it won't let go until you fall
I was down and out, got up I said "hey love I've had enough"
I've felt pleasure without pain 
My soul you'll never tame

Love bites, but so do I
Love bites, but so do I, so do I
Love bites, but so do I, so do I, so do I
Love bites, but so do I, so do I
Love bites 
Love bites

  1. You got me this week! I don't think I have ever heard this, or at least, I don't remember it, but I do recall when all the badass female rockers were big. Was this bad a contemporary of like, Lita Ford? Definitely woke me up this morning.

  7. Lol, I'm with Tanya because I was totally expecting Love Bites by Def Leppard too. This is a cool song as well though. It has been a while since I've listened to anything that would be classified as hard rock.
