Tear In My Heart Lyrics

Play "Tear In My Heart"
on Amazon Music

Sometimes you gotta bleed to know
That you're alive and have a soul
But it takes someone to come around
To show you how

She's the tear in my heart
I'm alive
She's the tear in my heart
I'm on fire
She's the tear in my heart
Take me...

    When Tyler says "Sometimes you gotta bleed to know" he means you have to go through pain in order to understand what he means. He later says "My heart is my armor/She’s the tear in my heart" which means that she (referring to his wife, Jenna) is like his kryptonite, his one weakness, the tear in his armor.

    In my opinion,Tyler Joseph the lead singer of the band wrote the song tear in my heart for his loving wife Jenna. Of course this song could fit any man who is in love with a woman. The first stanza "you gotta bleed to know" life is hard and lonely, even though we do have souls. When "someone come around", here I would like to refer someone as Tyler's wife, Jenna or any person that is a inspiration to your life. When the person come to you and show you the things you never ever found interesting and lively before, she becomes "a tear in your heart".

    The tear here could be the tear of joy, or the tear of sadness. And that's how love and relationship work sometimes. By saying "you're the tear in my heart", Tyler commits that his lover becomes a part of his emotion that lives inside of his body, and it is important as his own heart. In other words, the tear of joy could make me(Tyler) feel like "I'm alive".

    I think that this song means that you never really know how being in love feels until you are actually in love and nothing really compares to the feelings it gives you and the way it makes you think.
