"Torn" as written by Anne Preven, Phil Thornalley and Scott Cutler....
I thought I saw a girl bought to life
She was warm
She came around like she was dignified
She showed me what it was to cry

Well you couldn't be that girl I adored
You don't seem to know
Seem to care what your hear is for
But I don't know her anymore

There's nothing where she used to lie
My conversation has run dry
That's what's going on
Nothing's fine I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This 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

So I guess the fortune teller's right
Should have seen just what was there
And not some holy light
Which crawled beneath my veins

And now I don't care
I had no luck
I don't miss it all that much
There's just so many things

That I can touch I'm torn
I'm all out of faith
This 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 she used to lie
My inspiration has run dry
That's what's going on
Nothings right I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor

Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide a wake
And I can see

The perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already 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

    General Commentno one has posted anythin on this song yet? ok, i'll be the 1st...i think this song deals with a one night stand, waking up, and realizing for the first time who you are, and who you've become and not liking what you see. "illusion never changed into something real" the "she" the song refers to is herself...so i'm not that great at analysing, lol, just my first try. but yeah, thats my opinion
