"Tearing In My Heart" as written by and William Goldsmith Jeremy Enigk....
tearing in my heart when the world falls apart
and it's almost too hard
tearing in your mind how the pain makes you blind
when it's all said and done...

tearing in my heart, a mistake from the start
and it's almost too hard
tarry it's my mind, i'll repay you another time
when it's all said and done

tearing in your bones when the road left you alone
and it's almost too hard
tarry in my soul and you help make me whole
when it's all said and done

tearing in my heart when the world falls apart
and it's almost too hard
tarry in my soul and you help make me whole
when it's all said and done

    General Commentthe intro isn't Jeremy's sister, it's William's sister, Jeremy said it in an interview. William's sister passed away years before the song was put out so I sort of look at the intro as tipping off the meaning of the song in a way. It seems like a tribute to Will's sister. but yeah..

    General Commentthis is one of the most beautiful songs ive ever heard...this is my favorite Sunny Day song for sure. you've all heard it, so i dont have to explain, which is good because i couldnt if i tried - the song is simply serene.
    dont think a meaning is necessary, just whatever you want it to be...

    General CommentThis song is quite amazing...such a beautiful flow of words and music. Makes me feel like I'm in a dream where I'm falling, but it's that good falling feeling. Like when you are on an amusement park ride and you close your eyes.
