Listen & Lyrics: Hayley Williams ‘Asystole’
Hayley Williams surprised fans with her album FLOWERS for VASES / descansos.
Williams wrote and recorded the entire album at her home. “Asystole” is one of the handful of memorable tracks off of her album.
“Asystole” is a cardiac arrest that is usually irreversible, a flatline. Williams does an excellent job of comparing the heart attack to a failed relationship.

‘Asystole‘ Lyrics by Hayley Williams
I don’t live for you
I live for me
If only that were true
If only I could prove that on my own I’m worthy
Funny how it feels like we’re talking to each other on the other line
But it’s quiet here
Nothing playing but the song of asystole
I can’t get my head
To say anything my heart could ever understand
I want to forget
But the feeling isn’t something I can let myself let go of
Trouble is the way you stick
To any part of me that remains intact
And if I pull the plug
It isn’t only me that I’m holding back
Revive your love in me
Revive another side of me
My eyes to see the poisoned devotion in me
