"Tears Don't Fall" as written by Matthew Tuck, Michael Kieron Paget, Michael David Thomas, Jason James and Don Gilmore....
Let's go!

With blood shot eyes, I watch you sleeping
The warmth I feel beside me is slowly fading
Would she hear me, if I called her name?
Would she hold me, if she knew my shame?

There's always something different going on
The path I walk is in the wrong direction
There's always someone fucking hanging on
Can anybody help me make things bet-ter?

Your tears don't fall, they crash around me
Her conscious calls, the guilty to come home
Your tears don't fall, they crash around me
Her conscious calls, the guilty to come home

The moments died, I hear no screaming
The visions left inside me are slowly fading
Would she hear me, if I called her name?
Would she hold me, if she knew my shame?

There's always something different going on
The path I walk is in the wrong direction
There's always someone fucking hanging on
Can anybody help me make things bet-ter?

Your tears don't fall, they crash around me
Her conscious calls, the guilty to come home
Your tears don't fall, they crash around me
Her conscious calls, the guilty to come home

This battered room I've seen before
The broken bones they heal no more, no more
With my last breath I'm choking
Will this ever end I'm hoping
My world is over one more time

Let's go!

Would she hear me, if I called her name?
Would she hold me, if she knew my shame?

There's always something different going on
The path I walk is in the wrong direction
There's always someone fucking hanging on
Can anybody help me make things better?

Your tears don't fall, they crash around me
Her conscious calls, the guilty to come home
Your tears don't fall, they crash around me (tears don't fall)
Her conscious calls, the guilty to come (conscience calls)

Better!

Your tears don't fall, they crash around me
Her conscious calls, the guilty to come home (conscience calls)

    General CommentDefinately about a broken relationship, but I think it has a little more to it than 'just a love song'.

    I think it's about a guy who in in love with a girl but he does something that hurts her a lot:
    "Would she hold me if she if she knew my shame?"

    I think perhaps he has a past that is coming back to haunt him, or perhaps he cheated on her:
    "There's always something different going wrong...
    ...There's always someone fucking hanging on"

    He talks about her tears not 'falling' but instead they seem to "crash around" him- so her pain is really felt by him and he is really remorseful.

    When I saw them live a few weeks ago, Matt dedicated it to "all the couples out there... all the people who are in loooove..." so I think it's a message about being true and staying strong.
    Good song, I like it. Has a romance to it.

    Song MeaningLet me Just Clear up The REAL MEANING for this song. It's about the guy who loves this girl but cant seem to please her. She's always crying and he cant help. So in some twisted way to help her and himself he Kills Her.

    General CommentI think the song's a lot darker then you're all giving it credit for.
    "The moment's died, I hear no screaming"
    He sings this part calmly but it seems to have a 'disturbed' aura to it. Definitely not a straight up love song, as a matter of fact, he sounds quite fed up of this other person. It could be her that's hanging on to him,
    "There's always someone ------- hanging on"
    And she could be pestering him a lot as well,
    "There's always something different going wrong".
    He sings with aggression, and he's talking to the woman crying, so I don't think it quite has the meaning everybody seems to think it does.

    General CommentI agree with a load of stuff everyones said and sorry if I repeate things but:
    I beleive it's about losing that special bond with someone knowing whats possible but how shit keeps getting in the way.
    The lines about someone hanging on I beleive is to the other person, always having been there liking them and now the relationships over they're being a vulture, even if the other half doesn't wonna the vulture takes advantage of someones vunerability.
    I don't wonna make this personal but I truely beleive thats whats going on as it's happening to me now, I listened to this song for the first time in a long while and a loada shits just happend with me n my ex, we're still close but stuff gets stupid. And as soon as I propperly read the lyrics it hit me it's about this kinda thing, maybe Matt didn't write it for that but it's certainly very accurate to how I'm feeling. Cause yes everything bad she feels is amplified and it effects me badly each time she's hurt. ie the name of the track.
    Anyway sorry for ranting x

    General CommentI feel that the meaning of this one is somewhere in between cleanestfall's and everyone else's interpretations. I think it is kind of like he knows the relationship is dead, because of his inability to be faithful to her and the thought of her devotion to him makes him feel sick, in light of what he has done.

    "Your tears don’t fall they crash around me" is such a good line. There is no louder, more terrible sound than the sound of someone you love crying because
    of something you have done.

    General CommentI've just noticed, shouldn't it be:
    "Her conscience calls the guilty to come home"?

    General Commentok i think everyone here has missed something. i could be wildly wrong but here's what i get out of it...

    "with bloodshot eyes i watch you sleeping" - he's not talking about sleep here... she's dead (silverstien use sleep as a metaphor for death in "smile in your sleep"). "the warmth i feel beside me slowly fading" kind of reinforces that, as her body warmth fades away. "the moment's died, i hear no screaming" also makes me think that he's the one that killed her, and now the screaming's stopped. he feels guilt for it ("her concious calls the guilty to come home"), and he know's that he's walking the path of life in the wrong direction ("the path i walk is in the wrong direction")

    "would she hold me if she knew my shame?" - i think he might have killed her to be with someone else, and now he's wondering if she'd still hold him/lovehim if she knew his shame (i.e. what he'd done)

    that interpretation could be way off, but the band name makes me think they'd sing about that sort of thing let me know what you think

    General CommentMetal >>> Pop thats a really good idea n very possible as Matt himself said Hand Of Blood is about killing a girlfriend, so maybe this is another way of saying it?
    I think it has many meanings depending on situations you can put it in . ..
