"Drawn & Quartered" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
We can be like all the others with no way to go
Paint ourselves into a corner with hope
This could be the end of everything
Afraid of a dream of one

Let's hope these heart's for one another
It's worth all wounds, it must be
If I'm drawn and quartered
It's only for you
Hold that thought down forever
In all shades of blue

So why won't you (why won't you)?
Been waiting to
Why won't you go on and run?

Every part of me wants to believe
There's a darkness we need to feel
For the brightest light to be seen and felt inside
Only because of you

Let's hope these heart's for one another
It's worth all wounds, it must be
If I'm drawn and quartered
It's only for you
Hold that thought down forever
In all shades of blue

Why won't you go on and run with them?
Run away, go on and run away
And I'll stay
Drawn & quartered, drawn & quartered, drawn & quartered
For you

It's all I can do, my baby

Hold that thought down forever
In all shades of blue
Why won't you?
I'll wait for you
Why won't you?
Go on and run
Why won't you
Go on and run
Run away

Let's hope these heart's for one another
It's worth all wounds, it must be

Hold that thought down forever
In all shades of blue

Always

    My InterpretationThis song is very bittersweet. I think it's about the one that got away. That lost love that no matter what, you will still love them. Even after they've gone on with their lives, you will still be there waiting for there love because that is how powerful your love for them is. Holding onto the memories of the beautiful love you once had brings a sweet pain to reminiscence about. Because all you have, all that is left, is to live onto that love that once was and the hurt that memory brings (because the love is now lost) is worth everything in the world and is all you have! I can totally relate.

    General CommentOfficial lyrics from Japanese version of Tears on Tape:

    We can be like all the others with nowhere to go
    Paint ourselves into a corner with hope
    This could be the end of everything we're afraid of
    Or a dream of one

    Let's hold these hearts for one another
    It's worth all wounds,
    It must be
    If I'm drawn and quartered,
    It's only for you, shall we
    Hold that thought now and forever
    In all shades of blue

    So why won't you,
    They're waiting for you,
    So why won't you go on and run

    Every part of me wants to believe
    There's a darkness we need to feel
    For the brightest light to be seen and felt inside
    Only because of you

    Let's hold these hearts for one another
    It's worth all wounds,
    It must be
    If I'm drawn and quartered,
    It's only for you, shall we
    Hold that thought now and forever
    In all shades of blue

    So why won't you,
    They want you to,
    So why won't you go on and run
    With them run away
    Go on and run away
    And I'll stay yours drawn & quartered
    Drawn & quartered
    Drawn & quartered for you

    It's all I can do

    My baby
    Hold that thought now and forever
    In all shades of blue

    So why won't you,
    I'll wait for you,
    So why won't you go on and run
    So why won't you (go on and run)
    So why won't you go on and run
    With me run away

    Hold these hearts for one another
    Hold these thoughts now and forever we'll be
    Always
