"HeartAndBlood" has a similar vintage to "Adore" (ie. late high school) and is therefore part of that canon of self-obsessed love-themed songs. This one does contain an interesting question though; Whether the 'ache' that you felt when you 'spilt your blood' (completely vulnerable) on paper for someone who turns out to be utterly unworthy of the reverence that you had for them - whether that 'ache' was the satisfied kind, of the heart, experiencing true and therefore 'sacred' emotions? Or if it is the mournful ache of your blood to be sent so far from your heart for no good cause (or person)?


Now I know
The difference
Between my heart and my blood
I spilt my blood on paper
For you and I thought
My heart was aching for you
But really it was my blood
That was aching
For my heart
Oh my heart – she has suffered
She’s suffered for you
For my heart
Oh my heart – she has suffered
She’s suffered for you…
