Torn Lyrics

I thought I saw a man brought to life
He was warm, he came around like he was dignified
He showed me what it was to cry
Well you couldn't be that man I adored
You don't seem to know, don't seem to care
What your heart is for
No, I don't know him anymore

There's nothin' where we used to lie
Conversation has run dry
That's what's going on
Nothing's fine, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel, I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
Wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already torn

So I guess the fortune teller's right
I should have seen just what was there
And not some holy light
But you crawled beneath my veins and now
I don't care, I have no luck
I don't miss it all that much
There's just so many things
That I can't touch, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel, I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already torn

Torn

There's nothing where he used to lie
My inspiration has run dry
And that's what is goin' on
Nothin's right, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel, I'm cold and I'm ashamed
Bound and broken on the floor
You're a little late
I'm already torn

Torn

8 Thoughts & Meanings

She knows by now it's all over, there is nothing. She felt lonely and shameful, but now she's realized that's it's all a broken chain that's ended, and he's too late to try now, she's already torn.

She's starting to forget and accept that it's not going to continue any longer, her thoughts of trying has become dry, she's stopped trying. It's wrong now to think about it.

She thought she could defy her fortune, but ended up being trapped in a loophole of thoughts. She's made it out, by standing up for herself, she knows she hasn't the chance of making it better. She won't make any effort because she knows there's too many problems, especially the problems that are personal.

He broke her heart, she doesn't believe in him anymore. She's been thinking about him, seemingly trapped in thought at what she did wrong, she made him know what she was and who she was but regrets even doing so. The lies always continued, he couldn't show her what he really wanted, anytime the time came he'd turn her down or she would feel shameful about the whole relationship, she'd cry about it lying on the floor. She knows he wants to come back, but he's just a broken mirror by now.

All she wants to do is forget about him, she might as well already have forgotten. She knew the conversations that had ended quickly had a reason. She doesn't like it, and does not want to continue talking to a man she couldn't stop thinking about.

He didn't seem too serious about the relationship they had, he might have cheated on her, or left her with a vague response.

He did something to make her cry, not only for a night, but many nights/days

A man who used to be in her life tries to come back after leaving, after giving her the cold shoulder. He comes back trying to apologize, or prove that she should consider letting him in.
