Tears Don't Fall Lyrics

Let's go!

With blood shot eyes, I watch you sleeping
The warmth I feel beside me is slowly fading
Would she hear me, if I called her name?
Would she hold me, if she knew my shame?

There's always something different going on
The path I...

    I dont know if this is even close to right but i think this song is about a guy who has cheated on his girlfriend. This guy is unfaithful and promiscuous. He stays up late at night to watch her sleep because he knows that she is slowly fading away from him and he will lose her. He asks himself of she would still love him and hold him if she knew what he has done.

    When she cries, he feels like her tears are crashing around him because he feels guilt, he has caused her pain and it’s overwhelming for him. His life is falling apart. He wants to know why he always does the wrong thing “the path I walk’s in the wrong direction”.

    At the end of the song the girl leaves him and he is all alone. The pain becomes too bad for him; he cannot live without her and he cannot handle it, the only solution for him is to commit suicide.

    "The broken bones they heal no more, no more
    With my last breath I'm choking
    Will this ever end I'm hoping
    My world is over one more time"

    In this stanza he talks about how his heart has broken so many times but she has finished it off, it’s not going to heal this time, he won’t love again. He has decided to end his life and during his last breaths he is hoping the he won’t be punished with holding this burden even in the afterlife.
    When he says his world is over one more time it’s because when she left him she ended his world so now it’s just happening again but in real life not just a metaphor.

    the first time i heard this i thought that it was about his girlfriend/wife/lover dying and him tryin 2 get over it: the warmth i feel beside me is slowly fading/ your tears don't fall they crash around me - he feels her pain and every time she cries about it her tears drown him. However then i listened to the rest of the song and it didn't really make as much sense (that's still a possible meaning although not the one i think is correct).

    c'mon peeps, i dont think its about him cheating, but just generally about him feeling all the bad things he's done and hating himself for it when he knows he's corrupting her innocence and she's too good for him (his girlfriend).

    With blood shot eyes, I watch you sleeping - blood shot from crying or sleeplessness, because of his guilt

    The warmth I feel beside me is slowly fading - either her attraction for him (the warmth he feels around her) is going because he is drawing away from her coz he thinks he's 2 bad for her or the 'goodness of her spirit' (excuse for sounding corny) is goin coz he's corrupting her.

    Would she hear me, if I called her name? - im not really sure about this bit, it might just be put in to rhyme and sound cool, but i think it might be to symbolize how cut off he's feeling

    Would she hold me, if she knew my shame? - obviously, if she knew all the terrible things he'd done would she still love him and comfort him.

    Your tears don't fall, they crash around me - i still think that this means her tears hurt him, but also that her tears are of resentment and she feels betrayed by him so when she cries they 'crash' onto him, hitting him and hurting him so he drowns in her loathing of him and sees it as 'a just punishment'

    Her conscience calls, the guilty to come home - her goodness and conscience make siners (him) want to confess to her so that she'll forgive them

    it all sort of continues the same way...i'll let you work out the rest.

    oh and btw, i don't think the line "there's always someone fucking hanging on" means people are clinging to him for help, i think it means there's always someone holding on to 'stuff' and not letting go (as in not moving on from bad times and dwelling in stuff)
    and "the path I walk's in the wrong direction" is obviously he keeps making mistakes and choosing the evil road, but I think he might also be looking back and mean specifically that he had a chance to be good and start afresh with a good, beautiful girl and instead he feels that he has ruined her 'innocence'

    It's about someone doing something wrong or bad in a realtionship, maybe cheated. Everyone says there is the left hand path (the route of evil) or the right hand path (the route of good). The person has taken the wrong path and it has or is affecting the realtionship. And the someone fucking hanging on, is all the people that are clinging on him for help etc.

    The chorus might be about the other person in the realtionship finding out, and he feels the guilt.

    My the verse this bettered room I've seen before etc. might be him getting beaten up, or him commiting suicide. "With this last breath I'm choking will this ever end I'm hoping, my world is over one more time."

    She doesn't know they are in a relation ship. He's a stalker sneeking in and laying with her. Then she starts to fall in love with someone and he feels like she's leaving him . Then he kills them.

    I think the song is about broken realationship. When he doesn't pay enough attention to her and he doesn't understand the situation that makes her feel realy sad because of him and he continue to do this again and again and it makes her even more sad because he doesn't understand that his mistake makes her feel bad and their relationship is about broke because of this. He gets the point only after their broke.
    This is a deep meaning song about our life.

    It is an elaborated twisted deep depression felt by the guy,reason being:He is a jerk and he knows it yet he continues to do the wrong despite it leaving him guilty each time. He is a broken shattered man who tries to find a moment of belonging in someone elses arms yet that doesn't last long and he soon feels hollow inside once again. He is aware he treats women like shit after using them and it bothers him but that doesn't stop him from doing it agAin. As for the girl who could and could not be the girlfriend,she is desperate for his affection which drives her to being overly out thrown with herself towards him,her self respect is gone and she feels empty,all she knows is him,because of this she has become depressed and crazy for love to fill her empty heart. - In conclusion: :Her tears don't fall they crash around me is crying on the inside and clinging of the other party both of which makes him feel heavy and guilty

    Tears Don't Fall is about an ex-gf who wants to not feel anything and be mad in anger and revenge for his ex-bf and current gf
    Lesson: move on when your ex-bf breaks up with you

    I think he's been cheating and the guilts killing him
    His conscience calls him to confess but he can't because if he confesses she may not love him any more.

    Her tears don't fall because she doesn't know and that hurts him even more.

    I think that the singer is in shame because he's with her but he doesn't love her
    and is in shame because he's afraid of leaving her and watching her cry.

    My boyfriend chose this as our song and I don't think that this is really a love song. I think it is about a guy that knows he is doing wrong and hurting this girl but he still does it anyway. This girl is in so much pain because of him but he just dosn't know what to do about it so he keeps doing the things he does. He wishes that she would know how he really felt and that she would forgive him....

    To me it looks like The guy in the car is trying to rape the girl that is with him. Maybe he raped the other girl and using the voodoo doll was her way of revenge on him.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    will probably get banned again but..... care :)
    nah ur all wrong, its about the two of them mentally abusing someone during there lovemaking, some poor bloke who has this happening to him since he was a little kid/baby.
    well the singer feels guilty and ashamed and feels this blokes tears crashing around him, pff if she finds out he feels like this she wont like him anymore, see, its all cause she likes this so much.
    oki ban me then lol

    i think that Tears Don't Fall is about how a guy got tired of dealing with the girl so he left her, and then in the end after she got her "revenge" he felt the guilt and wished he would've stayed with her.

    "your tears dont fall, the crash around me"
    the meaning of this i would say is that when his other half is crying her tears are so powerful to him they feel like they are not jsut running down her face but are like huge rain drops crashing into the ground

    That the person is not hurt when the person he is talking about cries.
