LYRICS

Sometimes you’ve got to 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 higher,
Than I’ve ever been.

The songs on the radio are ok,
But my taste in music is your face,
And it takes a song 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 higher,
Than I’ve ever been.

You fell asleep in my car, I drove the whole time,
But that’s ok, 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’ve got to 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 higher,
Than I’ve ever been.

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.

Background

Joseph sings, "The songs on the radio are okay, but my taste in music is your face". Despite the opposition he feels, he's dedicated to his wife. Even though she's the "Tear in his heart", she takes him "Higher than he's ever been".

Music video

The music video for "Tear in My Heart" shows Joseph and Dun performing in Chinatown, Los Angeles, with Joseph singing in the town square. The people don't notice them while Joseph sings the first verse of the song. As more people begin to notice them, their eyes distort. The buildings surrounding Joseph and Dun begin to crumble, as Joseph notices his wife in the group of people, showing how the world he had known before her is crumbling; he then proceeds to follow her down an alley and into a restaurant. Jenna sings his lyrics back to him, saying "sometimes you've got to bleed and know / that you're alive and have a soul," which means that sometimes you need to hurt or feel pain to be reminded of your mortality, what's important in life, and find the thing (or person) that made all that pain worth it. Joseph then sings the following line, "but it takes someone to come around / to show you how," implying that he has yet to have that person in his life, and he is still experiencing all that pain and hurt. Jenna starts choking, punching, kicking, and beating Joseph; this scene shows Jenna "killing Blurryface," which is Joseph's evil incarnation who represents his pain, depression, and insecurity. The purpose of this scene is to show how Jenna saved Joseph from himself and all of his pain. At the end of the music video, Joseph is bleeding and hurt, and Jenna turns him to look her in the eye; Joseph kisses Jenna, and the screen turns to black. This scene shows their love and how Joseph feels saved by her, as if he was her damsel in distress, Blurryface was the villain trying to kill him, and Jenna saved him.

Live performances

Twenty One Pilots performed a remix of Tear in My Heart by DJ SoySauce at their Emotional Roadshow concert in Cincinnati, Ohio, in the form of a drum line which consisted of Dun and two other men in hazmat suits beside him. This has continued to be done throughout the tour.
