"Ripping Down" as written by and Nicholas William Haworth Alan John Redmond....
I'm not gonna sit around, sit around and wait for later.
Because it don't come back, back here at all.
And where does the chance, where does the chance leave your name here.
And fix it up, and why did you call?

And I wrote down every town I came to.
And I wore down every door at night.

Down on my knees, down on my knees, nothing to pray for.
And if it don't come back, back up off the floor.

We're ripping down cities trying to figure it out.
We're ripping down cities til we're living without.
Cause it matters too much.
It matters too much.
We're ripping down cities trying to figure it out.
We're ripping down cities til we're living without.
Beause it matters too much.
It matters too much.

And I wrote down every town I came to.
And I wore down every door at night.

Out in the street, out in the street, nothing changes.
And valentine's still mixed up all.

We're ripping down cities trying to figure it out,
We're ripping down cities till we're living without.
Because it matters too much.
It matters too much.
It matters too much.
It matters too much.

    General CommentI think this is about a relationship that is quite simple: two people both know that they want to be together. However, "it matters too mcuh" to just get together and risk losing each other. Thus, they are "ripping down cities trying to figure it out", or doing everything they possibly can to define their relationship when in their hearts, they know what it really is. It just matters too much to say it.
