Hope springs to life
Charmed by approaching listlessness
Hands reaching out
To grasp the open emptiness

Ah, leading me down...

And this goodbye
Faced with hope and countenance
Souls slip away
To bask in glowing radiance

Ah, leading me down...

As we run from the sun
And we harbour the lies
And we leave things undone
As we cover our eyes

Does it tear you apart my love?
Does it tear you apart my love?
'Cause it tears me apart

Charmed by this light
This sombre guidance in her eyes
Rage would entice
And final moments would arise

Ah, leading me down...

Does it tear you apart my love
Does it tear you apart my love
'Cause it tears me apart

You tear me apart

    General CommentThis one of my favorite songs. the Tea Party is such an underrated band. As for the meaning, it seems like it starts out falling in love when he most needed it, and eventually letting that love fall apart while wanting to keep it, but you just can't..

    General CommentWhat a good song by Tea Party again... What can we say about all the emotions that this song contain.
    I really think it's about a love story that turns bad for an unknownw out of control reason...
