Gaslight Anthem, The - Too Much Blood Lyrics




Are you scared this sounds familiar?
What if everybody knew the very trials and temptations
That we put ourselves through?
Now I am no angel but I got nothing to hide
Can you say the same thing for yourself tonight?

What can I keep for myself if I tell you my hell?
What would be left to take to my grave?
And what’s left for you, my lover to save?
What’s left for only you to take?
If I put too much blood on the page
If I put too much blood on the page
And if I just tell the truth are there only lies left for you
If I put too much love on the page?

Now as my eternal witness to the pride and the shame
Are you worried I say too much?
Are you scared they’ll take me away?
Now I am no devil but I’ve got things on my mind
And they're gonna come out and they’re gonna come up time to time

What can I keep for myself if I tell you my hell?
What would be left to take to my grave?
And what’s left for you, my lover to save?
What’s left for only you to take?
If I put too much blood on the page
If I put too much blood on the page
And if I just tell the truth are there only lies left for you
If I put too much blood on the page?

What can I keep for myself if I tell you my hell?
What would be left to take to my grave?
And what’s left for you, my lover to save?
What’s left for only you to take?
If I put too much blood on the page
If I put too much blood on the page
And if I just tell the truth are there only lies left for you
If I put too much blood on the page?

If I put too much blood on the page
If I put too much blood on the page again

Gaslight Anthem, The Too Much Blood Comments
  1. Seanachie's Court

    there is so much essence, story and content in all of brian songs... the lyrics, the guitars, the energy... stories inside stories, send this into space instead of mozart xD


    i love how the energy builds and changes through the song and the guitar comes into front at 4:15 with that amazing riff played throughout, sort of reminds me the same way 1000 years is built in a similar way, or the contrasts in stay vicious with the music and then the lyrics but yeh.. thats another story but i could talk about gaslight, horrible crowes, molly and the zombies and brian whole day long =D

  2. Michael deGuerre

    The spiritual title track

  3. Israel Castillo

    Legends!

  4. billy no-talent

    one of my favorite bands, but you gotta fix the description. Howl? wtf happened there

  5. bluestuey1

    What a voice and what great taste you have

  6. Eisonhawk

    now you can totally exactly see just how the only musics that will ever ever matter are our gospel & roots reggae yano plus this may sting a little too kids

  7. LordXzavior

    Such an awesome song, on an amazing album.

  8. César Neto

    Avett Brooos!!!

  9. browniemaneiro

    Totally Chris Cornell. I thought this the first time I listened to it.

  10. MacTrollie

    Still don't see I't man.

  11. g0reskin

    /watch?v=e3MTrJohKs4&feature=relmfu think again ;)

  12. MacTrollie

    I think you're alone in that man.

  13. g0reskin

    lol to me it sounds more like Dio's voice

  14. MacTrollie

    I didn't actually mean to say highly successful lol.

  15. Matt Kell Campbell

    you have a funny interpretation of the term ' highly successful' haha

  16. MacTrollie

    The lead singer of sound garden, who also had a very successful solo career.

  17. PrettyGreenLufc

    who's chris cornell

  18. MacTrollie

    lol the vocalist took a few to many liberties with this Cornell inspired performance, it's quite cringe worthy he sounds just like Chris Cornell at parts I mean 2:26 WTF lol...

    Alex White

    apparently he went home and wrote this song after seeing Chris Cornell in concert

  19. Pauly Howl

    The vocal performance on this track is trully amazing. Not too take away form the performance of any of the other band members but the vocals of Brian steal the show on this track

  20. Alex harrison

    Unbelievable how well he merged Chris Cornell and Gaslight to make this gem!

  21. nathan gorrod

    love it
