Jet Black Heart (Meaning behind the lyrics)

So I’m a fan of 5sos. Not from the screaming fandom but anyway. I actually admire them alot. New album is called “Sounds good, feels good”. (Funny, because it really does). One of the most beautiful songs that gives me goosebumps is called Jet Black Heart.

As I listened to it for like 1000 times I realised I want to write down my review what this song is about. What’s there behind those strong lyrics (not saying that I’m right). I actually started to hear it a bit different when I started this post. 

Here are the lyrics:

Everybody’s got their demons
Even wide awake or dreaming
I’m the one who ends up leaving
Make it okaySee a war I wanna fight it
See a match I wanna strike it
Every fire I’ve ignited
Faded to greyBut now that I’m broken
Now that you know it
Caught up in a moment
Can you see inside?’Cause I’ve got a jet black heart
And there’s a hurricane underneath it
Trying to keep us apart
I write with a poison pen
But these chemicals moving between us
Are the reason to start again

Now I’m holding on for dear life
There’s no way that we could rewind
Maybe there’s nothing after midnight
That could make you stay

But now that I’m broken
And now that you know it
Caught up in a moment
Can you see inside?

‘Cause I’ve got a jet black heart
And there’s a hurricane underneath it
Trying to keep us apart
I write with a poison pen
But these chemicals moving between us
Are the reason to start again

The blood in my veins
Is made up of mistakes
Let’s forget who we are
And dive into the dark
As we burst into color
Returning to life

‘Cause I’ve got a jet black heart
And there’s a hurricane underneath it
Trying to keep us apart
I write with a poison pen
But these chemicals moving between us
Are the reason to start again

The blood in my veins
Is made up of mistakes
(To start again)
Let’s forget who we are
And dive into the dark

Here is what I heared:

We all have a dark side. There is a demon inside us. No matter if we are asleep or we are awake, this demon is always inside. And we have to live vith that. 

And that little demon may hurt someone. So it’s easier to go away from people that have hurt you. 

But then you think that you can’t live without this person and you start to fight for him/her. But that didn’t help.

(And this paragraph is totally out of everything I wrote before) Then I start to hear some kind of bullying story. Person is broken inside (probably got bullied) so the phrase “can you see inside” is like “can you see what you have done – I’m miserable, unhappy and broken inside. I can’t trust anyone because of the issues that were caused by bullying. Probably thinking about suicide and do self-harm”.

So to stay in the story that I started, you might want to forget about what I wrote about bullying. But I just wanted to show you that it’s ok to hear a different meaning in this song. That’s why this song is so amazing. Because everyone can feel this song in their own way.

So now you know that my heart is broken. But can you see me from inside? The way I feel now? Right at this moment?

Now I can’t love this person anymore, I’m acting that I’m fine. I don’t care about this person that used to be special tome just a while ago. I don’t say anything about what I really feel, but there is so much to tell, to express. Trying to keep away from this person. This is how I curse my own life. I start to talk bad stuff about this person. But no matter what I do, I still think about him/her and you would love to forget all the pain and start it over again.

Of course I did some mistakes too. Unfourtinatley I can’t bring them back. If I said something, it’s already said. If I did something, it’s already done. There is nothing that I can do to bring him/her back.

I will always make mistakes. That’s in my blood. (That’s in everyones blood actually). So I’m only human and I might make some mistakes. I would like to start it again and forget about all the past. Forget about all my demons. Go back to the past where we were happy. But then I have to go back. Go back to the real life and live. 

There will always be ups and downs but life goes on. No matter what happens there is always another day. As you say there’s always sun after rain. 


Stay strong. Remember you’re beautiful and I love you all no matter what. 

Best wishes,

Always yours Penguinblogs
