"Bodyache" as written by Megan James and Corin Roddick....
You said, you said
"Turn the lights down, I wanna be alone"
I ran your head away
I couldn't stand how it pleaded
I needed to take

Take a break, take me down, take me down there
I wanna stare at the tears, how they water your years
Take a break, take me down, take me down there
I wanna stare at your tears, how they

I, I, I lied, now I'm lying awake
I, I, I cried 'til my body ache
I, I, I lied, now I'm lying awake
I, I, I cried 'til my body ache

You sweat, and you bled
I couldn't look cause your body, your body would shake
And you feared a lonely death
Like a lake leaves you alone in her depths

Take a break, take me down, take me down there
I wanna stare at the tears, how they water your years
Take a break, take me down, take me down there
I wanna stare at your tears, how they

I, I, I lied, now I'm lying awake
I, I, I cried 'til my body ache
I, I, I lied, now I'm lying awake
I, I, I cried 'til my body ache

I wanna know what's your
I wanna know what's your quietest feeling
I saw you break out, I saw you break out
Saw you unreeling
I lied, now I'm lying awake
I cried until my body ache
I lie, now I'm lying awake
Now I'm lying awake, now I'm lying awake

I, I, I lied, now I'm lying awake
I, I, I cried 'til my body ache
I, I, I lied, now I'm lying awake
I, I, I cried 'til my body ache

Now I'm lying awake, now I'm lying awake
Until my body ache, until my body ache
I, I, I cried 'til my body.

    My InterpretationI think the song is about how the artist is in a relationship and she sees the emotional toll her partner takes being with her. Maybe she has some sort of mental illness that is very taxing on the both of them. Her partner works so hard to make sure she's okay, and keeps their troubles to themselves. She wants to see her partner let go, to show themself to her. She feels guilt over how her partner is also suffering but she can't help. She wants them to open up to her and the song is her admitting guilt and trying to get them to open up.
