Riff: Bullet For My Valentine – “Tears Don’t Fall (Part 2)”

Feb 12, 2013

So answer me/Talk to me/So answer me/Where’s your empathy

from Tears Don't Fall (Part 2.) lyrics by Bullet For My Valentine

To balance out the blind rage, BFMV include their interpretation of the cliche tearjerker. Instead of evoking emotion, all that Tucker can come up with is another pathetic musing over being rejected. This deep in it wears thin, and the dull hook seals it as a poorly written train wreck.
