"Torn Apart" as written by and Daniel Smith....
I could only be myself with you around
Oh, with you around
And now there’s nothing left for me to think about
Whoa, to think about.

And it hurts like hell
To be torn apart
And it hurts like hell
To be thrown around

We were born to be together
Torn apart
Torn apart
We were born to be together
Torn apart
Torn apart

You stepped with a heavy tread,
And left your mark
Oh, your mark on me
The space you used to fill is now this great black hole
Oh, you’re out of sight but not out of my mind

And it hurts like hell
To be torn apart
And it hurts like hell
To be thrown around

We were born to be together
Torn apart
Torn apart
We were born to be together
Torn apart
Torn apart

Oh, oh, oh, oh.

We were born to be together
Torn apart
Torn apart
We were born to be together
Torn apart
Torn apart

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

    General CommentThis is the version that is just Bastille, there is a version where just after the last chorus the rapper GRADES has a verse and there are ooohs to fade out. Since this song will be on the Bastille EP VS. (also known as other People's Heartache Pt.III) and that is going to be a purely collaboratory EP in contrast to its two predecessors, which are both solely covers or different versions of their own songs, i expect it will be the rap version that is on the actual EP

    Song MeaningWell it's simple, in my opinion, the singer has found the love of his life, maybe his soulmate, but they are not together anymore.That hurts him and he has realized that he can do nothing to change things and their break up was inevitable, like fate, so he says'' we are born to be together, torn apart'' believing that even though they are apart they connect in some way too .

    MemoryAlright. Let's begin.

    Here we have a person with either a friend, boyfriend / girlfriend, anything really. There's no key words in the song indicating that it's any kind of relationship in particular, so I assume it could be about a person and anyone else close to them. I'll use two close friends of the same sex; not a couple.

    "I could only be myself, with you around. Oh, with you around. And now there's nothing left for me to think about. Whoa, to think about." In my opinion, I see it as two friends who could be themselves around each other. Then, one friend parts from the other, possibly from an argument. The other is hurt and feels like they can't think without the other person occupying their thoughts.

    "And it hurts like hell, To be torn apart. And it hurts like hell, To be thrown around." This part of the song talks about the person feeling hurt that their relationship / friendship had to end, and even though the two may not speak to each other anymore, there's an emotional barrier between them that makes the person feel like they're being emotionally sucker-punched.

    "We were born to be together, Torn apart. Torn apart. We were born to be together, Torn apart. Torn apart." Now, the person speaks about how the friend and him / her were supposed to have each other's back, be friends, etc. and that they were torn apart from each other by their foolish argument.

    "You stepped with a heavy tread and left your mark. Oh, your mark on me. The space you used to fill is now this great black hole. Oh, you're out of sight but not out my mind." The speaker says that the friend was their everything, and that there isn't one thing that doesn't leave a mark of the friend on it; and even though they barely see each other anymore the speaker says they're not out of his / her mind.

    The rest of the song basically is the same lyrics over and over; and that's the end of it.
