"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 CommentShe cheated on him. Simple as that.

    The video is not related, it's just a very nice video with an interesting concept.

    Coming from a bad break up, this song is just amazing, reflecting just how you can feel about someone you love deeply, that has betrayed you.

    -----
    You took the tunnel route home, you've never taken that way with me before.
    Did you feel the need for change?
    ***This lines clearly define some sort of mockery and bitterness towards her... She cheated, so, he's asking her if she did it just because it was something different, or out of boredom about their relationship (you've never taken that way with ME before)


    Apologies on your fingernails, love flickered in the city of lights,
    Like intermittent radio waves
    ***As it usually happens, when he found out, she apologized and probably said a lot of crap, he knows it's not heartfelt, hence she was just apologizing "from" her fingernails

    I don't need your tears
    I don't want your love
    I just gotta get home.
    ***Again, when someone cheats, crying is their way of making up for the fact they've betrayed you. Assuming he really loved her, he's devastated, he wants nothing to do with her at the moment, he just "gotta get home"

    And I feel like I'm breaking up, and I wanted to stay,
    Headlights on the hillside, don't take me this way,
    ***He was really commited to the relationship, he wanted to stay in it.

    I don't want you to hold me, I want you to pray,
    This is bigger than us
    ***He's bargaining, mixed with denial and hope about this situation, he really don't want to let go, but he can't forgive as easily. Trust me, if you've ever been in this sucky situation, you know what if feels like.

    You went where the horses cry, you've never taken that way with me before.
    Did you feel the need for change?
    ***You wonder over and over "why did she do it?" so it's congruent that it's similar to the very first line of the song

    Guilt smeared across your lips, I was tired and cold from the window
    You're tired, nothing's changed.
    ***She feels guilty, but that's just not enough in this situation, he needs more, but maybe he realizes that she's done this for a reason, she's subconsciously tired of him, or out of the relationship, and even though she might try to fix this with her words, nothings changed from the fact that she cheated.


    I think that sums it up. Amazing song.
