Twenty One Pilots – Tear In My Heart lyrics

[Intro]
An-nyŏng-ha-se-yo

[Verse 1]
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


[Chorus]
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 higher
Than I’ve ever been

[Verse 2]
The songs on the radio are okay
But my taste in music is your face

And it takes a song to come around
To show you how

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
You fell asleep in my car I drove the whole time
But that’s okay I’ll just avoid the holes so you sleep fine
I’m driving here I sit
Cursing my government
For not using my taxes to fill holes with more cement
You fell asleep in my car I drove the whole time
But that’s okay I’ll just avoid the holes so you sleep fine
I’m driving here I sit
Cursing my government
For not using my taxes to fill holes with more cement
Sometimes you gotta bleed to know, oh, oh
That you’re alive and have a soul, oh, oh
But it takes someone to come around
To show you how

[Chorus]

[Outro](x2)
My heart is my armor
She’s the tear in my heart
She’s a carver
She’s a butcher with a smile
Cut me farther
Than I’ve ever been
Than I’ve ever been
Than I’ve ever been
Than I’ve ever been

    Tyler feels as though Jenna is the "tear" in his "armor" so she is like his weak spot to his heart. She makes him feel love. In the video, Jenna punches Tyler because she knocks out Blurry for him by giving him confidence, love and positivity. By being with her, Tyler can separate himself from Blurryface and be himself, not Blurry.
    "Blurry's the one I'm not..."
    Stay street clique.

    This song explains what honest and pure love feels like. From a guys point of view. Women just gush out what they feel all the time, in almost every song but you rarely are put into a guys perspective of what love is for him and how he sees it, which makes this song amazing. Tyler lets us know that guys have feelings too, and they can get shot by love just like girls do and it feels like a "tear in his heart".

    He is very close with his wife and in the video his wife is beating him up. But after they always return to each other because even tough they get hurt, they will always love one and other. Meaning that even if your close with someone you will get hurt and that you have to go past it. Love is strong even through the hardest storms. That's what it's all about.

    The song is about how the narrator or Tyler, has never truly experienced love or this kind of emotion before. In the music video it shows Jenna, Tyler's wife her beating him up which is supposed to represent Tyler feeling something or it represents that Jenna is making Tyler feel something (love) that he never truly experienced before until she came around.

    A girl who gives a lot of a hard time to a guy, he wants to do everything for her but it's never enough. He loves her so he doesn't want to believe that hes not good enough for her, he tries to blame it on the government's fault to have her heart back.
