Cracked and Torn is Ashei’s second single from their debut EP, Music Is Boring. It draws on the feelings of seeing their world literally collapse around them and turns it in to a metaphor about a finding support in a relationship when you’re in a dark place.


A ceiling of blue waits for you / behind locked doors it can be yours / you lay a monument of shattered stone / you’ve found a home but you can’t let go / I wanna feel the sunlight warm my skin / pick my feet up off the ground and run out of this town / forget the future for just one day / let my journey slowly spill on to an empty page / when I’m cracked and torn would you face it too? / when I can’t go on would you make it through? / Drive through the flood to make it home to find all that remains is an unfamiliar place / colours fade / pillars break / our palace of dust has blown away / I am built to break so know I’ll have to take from you
