about

Love, as many of us know, can tear you to shreds. I wrote this song when I had been smashed into a million pieces and hadn’t yet worked out how to put myself back together again.

“Tear me apart, smash me to bits, kill me with your heart.”

lyrics

I feel your eyes marvelling
I know that you want to touch me
A borderline so cruel, unfair
Prevent your arms to ever sway me

I’m Venus de Milo in your mind
Broken by the hands of time

Half Chorus
Tear me apart
Smash me to bits
Kill me with your heart
Tear me apart love
I was cold, as cold as stone
An ice maiden sitting upon her throne
And with one glance, a single tear
Fell down my cheek and buried into the snow
I’m Venus de Milo in your mind
Broken by the hands of time

Chorus
Tear me apart
Smash me to bits
Kill me with your heart
Aching to feel
Anything real
Wound me with your art
Tear me apart love
I’ve learnt to run so fast
So as to not listen to all the voices that tell me to stop
I’ve been dodging darts
Like the arrows you’re shooting to find your way to my heart
Venus de Milo, in your mind
I’m broken by the hands of time

Chorus
Tear me apart
Smash me to bits
Kill me with your heart
Aching to feel
Anything real
Wound me with your art
Tear me apart
Smash me to bits
Kill me with your heart
Aching to feel
Anything real
Wound me with your art
Tear me apart love
Tear me apart love
