"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 CommentIm reading the lyrics and watching the video and I take the lyrics and video interpretation as the girl is dying inside because maybe she cannot be the person she wants to be so she plays the role of something she's not (a candy bar) and the boy is trying to reach out to her. in the end when she is broken out of the candy bar (shell) she is a beautiful girl underneath... hence her inner beauty is beautiful.... and the kid only wants to help her realize that. The lyrics that help me come to that conclusion are:
    "You went where the horses cry, you've never taken that way with me before.
    Did you feel the need for change?
    Guilt smeared across your lips, I was tired and cold from the window
    You're tired, nothing's changed."

    I feel that this song is about coming to terms with who you are... an acceptance song... Im not trying to bring my sexuality into it but coming with the aspect of coming to terms with being gay... I know how she feels... being trapped in a shell and wanting to be free but not being able to until you come out or someone shows you that you still matter under the facade you put up...
