WATCH: 5 Seconds of Summer Gets Super Emotional in “Jet Black Heart” (VIDEO)

By  | 

When 5 Seconds of Summer announced they were making a music video for their third single off Sounds Good Feels Good, “Jet Black Heart,” we just knew it was going to be emotional. And then when they announced that fans would have a heavy involvement in the vid, we honestly couldn’t even begin to prepare ourselves for the waves of feelings that were sure to wash over us as soon as we watched. But nothing could’ve prepared us for the heart-wrenching 4 minutes that is the final result.

In the video, various members of the #5SOSFam solemnly mouth the song’s lyrics as Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, Michael Clifford and Ashton Irwin perform the song in the background. Sounds pretty tame, right? Wrong. Between the heartfelt lyrics, dramatic camera shots and multiple tears — including those from Mikey — you’ll be sobbing in no time at all.



Check out the “JBH” music video above and reflect on the deep lyrics below:

Everybody’s got their demons
Even wide awake or dreaming
I’m the one who ends up leaving
Make it okay

See a war I wanna fight it
See a match I wanna strike it
Every fire I’ve ignited
Faded to grey



But 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
