SONGS

tear myself apart - Tate McRae

The Experience: My summer rose is cut and thrown away... Heartbreak is worse when you're left alone...
The Vibe: Sadness.
The Topic: Heartbreak
The Value: Love.
The Tension: You make it look so easy you turn around and leave me (He doesn't value her, didn't value herVS. I tear myself apart (But she valued him... and now his indifference wounds her more deeply than the break-up ever could).

Music video: Tate McRae alone at home. No matter where she goes, she never finds any more company than the ghost of a boy who's gone. The phantasm is blind-folded, blind to her pain. But still a very real and very hurtful part of her life.

The Meaning of tear myself apart: The relationship is over: my summer rose is cut and thrown away. He's gone. Very gone: you don't call for days and days and days and you make it look so easy you turn around and leave me. We don't want to be desperate. And he doesn't care: you say "It's not my fault" and you say nothing at all. Tate McRae is left alone. That loneliness is what tears her apart. For her, he doesn't mourn because he never cherished. And that makes her uncherishable in her own eyes.

Ask yourself: Why do other people have such control over our self-image and self-esteem?

LYRICS:


So it goes, my summer rose is cut and thrown away
Petals fall and you don't call for days and days and days

You say, you say, "It's not my fault"
You say nothing at all

Can you see my hands shake, heart is now an earthquake
I'm left alone to tear myself apart
You make it look so easy, turn around and leave me
I'm left alone to tear myself apart
To tear myself apart

No concern for what you'll burn, you set yourself ablaze
What survives are sharpened knives that go right through the bone

You say, you say, "It's not my fault"
You say nothing at all

Can you see my hands shake, heart is now an earthquake
I'm left alone to tear myself apart
You make it look so easy, turn around and leave me
I'm left alone to tear myself apart
To tear myself apart

Tear myself apart

Can you see my hands shake, heart is now an earthquake
I'm left alone to tear myself apart
You make it look so easy, turn around and leave me
I'm left alone to tear myself apart
To tear myself apart
