Lydia is a beautiful portrayal of an unhealthy relationship ending in tragedy. Johnny sings of drug use
Jealously, and mental illness in his relationship with Lydia, protaying them as preditor and prey. Lydia
gets tangled up in his bad habits which ultimately leads to the couples downfall and Lydias death.
Johnnys rockstar lifestyle of drugs, alchol, and sex was all to much for her and it all took a tole on her. He
explains how she loved him more than anything else but something got in the way of him loving her,
presumably the drug use he talks about in the third verse. The song convays Lydia as a straight laced girl
with a pure heart whos willing to give her everything to Johnny, but thijngs gt out of hand and she
thought to have overdosed while with Johnny. He saw her as perfect, but see himself as a wreck, this
shows further that he did love her, but he knew they just weren’t right for eachother. Johnny got her
into bad situations, disregarding her feelings or attuides towards what they were doing and ultimately
getting her hurt, and possibly killed, either way Johnny feels responsible for her sufforing. The menacing
sound of the song perfectly complamints Johnnys hunting tail of love gone wrong.
