Tear me open at the seams.
Take everything you need.
Take my heart if you like the beat,
take my lungs if it's hard to breathe, to breathe.

"I'm not cold," she said,
but she's shaking as she's lying next to me naked.
Pulled the hair back from her face to let that smile heat this place.
And this feels so far from real.
I'm lost and I love it.

I can't take it, if you're waiting.
I am ready to tell the world about a girl
who showed me love again for the first time.
And it's everything I dreamed of.

Tell me what you thought about when you were breathing oh so loud,
screaming oh so loud.
Tell me if this is real.
I need to know before I get too close.

So here we lie in this beautiful mess of tangled sheets and beads of sweat.
With my heart in your hand and my neck in the other,
should I be scared or should I come closer?
But it's still beating and I'm still breathing.
You haven't hurt me yet.

Morning always comes too quick when you're around, when you're around.
You leave me lying here so they don't find us out, they'll find us out.
Tear me open at the seams, take everything you need.
Take my heart if you like the beat,
take my lungs if it's hard to breathe.

    General CommentTo me this song means everything when I feel like I'm falling in love. I'm on the brink of giving my heart away but I'm scared to in case the other person doesn't feel the same way

    General Commentthis is a song about a guy that would do anything for the girl in his life.."Tear me open at the seams, take everything you need.
    Take my heart if you like the beat,
    take my lungs if it's hard to breathe.?" he would give up breathin to keep her with him...he is ready to burst at the seams to let everyone know what a great girl he has...it seems as if hes dreamin it all cus its too good to be true "And this feels so far from real.
    I'm lost and I love it." this song means soo much to me because im in the same situation...i LOOOOVE this song

    General Commenti think this songs about new love.. and letting go of being scared about giving in ..and letting yourself feel it completely.

    General Commentamazing. all of there songs are fantastic. 'still breathing', 'killing me', and 'my everything' are my favorites.

    So here we lie in this beautiful mess of tangled sheets and beads of sweat.
    With my heart in your hand and my neck in the other,
    should I be scared or should I come closer?
    But it's still beating and I'm still breathing.
    You haven't hurt me yet.

    those lyrics give me chills, theyre amazing and i think a lot of people can relate
