"Bigger than us" as written by and Charles Cave Harry Mcveigh....
You took the tunnel route home
You'd never taken that way with me before
Did you feel a need for change?
Apologies on your fingernails
Love flickered in the city of lights
Like intermittent radio waves

I don't need your tears
I don't want your love
I've just got to get home

And I feel like I'm breaking up
But I wanted to stay.
Headlights on the hillside
Don't take me this way
I don't want you to hold me
I want you to pray
'Cause it's bigger than us

You went where the horses cry
You'd never taken that way with me before
Did you feel a need for a change?
Guilt smeared across your lips
I was tired and cold from the window
You're tired nothing has changed

I don't need your tears
I don't want your love
I've just got to get home

And I feel like I'm breaking up
But I wanted to stay
Headlights on the hillside
Don't take me this way
I don't want you to hold me
I want you to pray
'Cause it's bigger than us

And I feel like I'm breaking up
But I wanted to stay
Headlights on the hillside
Don't take me this way
I don't want you to hold me
I want you to pray
'Cause it's bigger than us

And I feel like I'm breaking up
But I wanted to stay
Headlights on the hillside
Don't take me this way
I don't want you to hold me
I want you to pray
'Cause it's bigger than us

And I feel like I'm breaking up
But I wanted to stay
Headlights on the hillside
Don't take me this way
I don't want you to hold me
I want you to pray
'Cause it's bigger than us

    General Commenti love this song so much!! the lyrics have really confused me though not to mention the video :/ i think it might be that the boy in it is a younger version of the lead singer and so he's reminicing about a childhood sweetheart (the girl in it) that he clearly cared for and would do anything to be with her but she kept hurting him "And I feel like I'm breaking up, and I wanted to stay, Headlights on the hillside, don't take me this way,I don't want you to hold me" and "this is bigger than us" meaning that their relationship was way more mature than them... i think then the rest of it is the older, wiser him is saying that he doesn't want her anymore and that things WILL improve eventually with time "I don't need your tears I don't want your love" BUT in the end he carries her back to the young boy because even though he knows she messed him up, he wouldn't have changed a thing becuase she's made him into who he is today and the she gave him some really happy memories.... okay i've gone on for to long!! haha
