Tear You Apart
She Wants Revenge Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Got a big plan, this mindset maybe it's right
At the right place and right time, maybe tonight
And the whisper or handshake sending a sign
Wanna make out and kiss hard, wait never mind

Late night, and passing, mention it flipped her
Best friend, its no thing maybe it slipped
But the slip turns to terror and a crush to light
When she walked in, he froze up, believe it's the fright

It's cute in a way, till you cannot speak
And you leave to have a cigarette, your knees get weak
An escape is just a nod and a casual wave
Obsessed about it, heavy for the next two days

It's only just a crush, it'll go away
It's just like all the others it'll go away
Or maybe this is danger and he just don't know
You pray it all away but it continues to grow

I want to hold you close
Skin pressed against me tight
Lie still, close your eyes girl
So lovely, it feels so right

I want to hold you close
Soft breasts, beating heart
As I whisper in your ear
I want to fucking tear you apart

Then he walked up and told her, thinking that he'd passed
And they talked and looked away a lot, doing the dance
Her hand brushed up against his, she left it there
Told him how she felt and then they locked in a stare

They took a step back, thought about it, what should they do
'Cause there's always repercussions when you're dating in school
But their lips met, and reservations started to pass
Whether this was just an evening or a thing that would last

Either way he wanted her and this was bad
Wanted to do things to her it was making him crazy
Now a little crush turned into a like
And now he wants to grab her by the hair and tell her

I want to hold you close
Skin pressed against me tight
Lie still, and close your eyes girl
So lovely, it feels so right

I want to hold you close
Soft breasts, beating heart
As I whisper in your ear
I want to fucking tear you apart

I want to hold you close
Skin pressed against me tight
Lie still, and close your eyes girl
So lovely, it feels so right

I want to hold you close
Soft breasts, beating heart
As I whisper in your ear
I want to fucking tear you apart

I want to hold you close
Skin pressed against me tight
Lie still, and close your eyes girl
So lovely, it feels so right

I want to hold you close
Soft breasts, beating heart




As I whisper in your ear
I want to fucking tear you apart

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to She Wants Revenge's song Tear You Apart are seemingly about a young man and woman who have a crush on each other, but the boy is unsure about the girl's feelings. The first few lines suggest that the boy has a plan for the night and is hoping that it will all work out in his favor. However, when the girl enters, he gets extremely nervous and doesn't know how to act around her. He tries to play it cool, but he can't help but obsess over her, even after the night is over.


As the song continues, the boy and girl eventually take steps towards each other and confess their feelings. However, the boy's desire for the girl becomes intense, and he imagines tearing her apart. While some have interpreted the song as a violent fantasy, others see it as a metaphor for overwhelming desire. Either way, the song offers a glimpse into the complicated emotions that can arise from a crush.


One interesting aspect of "Tear You Apart" is its use of musical influences from the post-punk and new wave genres. The song features a driving bassline and atmospheric synths that create a dark, moody atmosphere. Additionally, the vocals of Justin Warfield and Adam Bravin are often compared to those of Ian Curtis and Peter Hook from Joy Division, another influential post-punk band.


Line by Line Meaning

Got a big plan, this mindset maybe it's right
Feeling confident and ready for action, hoping that his mindset is correct


At the right place and right time, maybe tonight
Believing that this is the perfect moment to make a move


And the whisper or handshake sending a sign
Thinking that a subtle gesture might signal mutual attraction


Wanna make out and kiss hard, wait never mind
Having second thoughts about acting on his desires


Late night, and passing, mention it flipped her
Recalling a conversation that might have sparked her interest


Best friend, its no thing maybe it slipped
Trying to play it cool and rationalize his feelings


But the slip turns to terror and a crush to light
Realizing that his innocent crush has turned into something more intense


When she walked in, he froze up, believe it's the fright
Feeling paralyzed and nervous in her presence


It's cute in a way, till you cannot speak
Finding his shyness endearing, but also frustrating


And you leave to have a cigarette, your knees get weak
Needing to take a break and catch his breath after being near her


An escape is just a nod and a casual wave
Using a small gesture to indicate his desire to leave the situation


Obsessed about it, heavy for the next two days
Thinking nonstop about the encounter and feeling weighed down by his emotions


It's only just a crush, it'll go away
Assuming that his feelings will dissipate and he'll move on


It's just like all the others it'll go away
Trying to reassure himself that this situation is nothing special


Or maybe this is danger and he just don't know
Sensing that this attraction could be risky or problematic, but uncertain of the consequences


You pray it all away but it continues to grow
Hoping that his feelings will disappear, but finding them getting stronger


Then he walked up and told her, thinking that he'd passed
Approaching her with confidence, thinking that he had nothing to lose


And they talked and looked away a lot, doing the dance
Engaging in flirtatious conversation, but also being shy and cautious


Her hand brushed up against his, she left it there
Feeling a spark of electricity when their hands touched, and liking the sensation


Told him how she felt and then they locked in a stare
Admitting her own feelings and having a moment of intense eye contact


They took a step back, thought about it, what should they do
Pausing to consider the ramifications of pursuing a relationship


'Cause there's always repercussions when you're dating in school
Acknowledging the risks and complications of starting a romance in a high school setting


But their lips met, and reservations started to pass
Giving in to their mutual attraction, despite the potential pitfalls


Whether this was just an evening or a thing that would last
Wondering if this connection was fleeting or had the potential to be meaningful


Either way he wanted her and this was bad
Being aware that his desire for her could lead to trouble or heartache


Wanted to do things to her it was making him crazy
Feeling consumed by his lust and wanting to act on it immediately


Now a little crush turned into a like
Realizing that his affection has grown from a simple crush to a deeper, more serious feeling


And now he wants to grab her by the hair and tell her
Feeling a powerful and intense desire to be physically and emotionally close to her


I want to hold you close Skin pressed against me tight Lie still, and close your eyes girl So lovely, it feels so right
Expressing a desire for physical intimacy and closeness with his partner, and reveling in the pleasure of being close to her


Soft breasts, beating heart As I whisper in your ear I want to fucking tear you apart
Describing the physical sensations of being near his partner, and expressing a desire to be as close to her as possible
