Hannah Montana – Don’t Wanna Be Torn

This week, Wednesday in particular we focused our discussion on a poem and its intended meaning. This song in particular came into my mind when we were discussing Wyatt’s poems and the idea of being torn and at a loss as to what to do when it comes to love.

As I listened to this song for the millionth time before posting it, I also think it works well for our discussion between what is narrative and what is lyric. In this case I was fighting back and forth. However I finally determined and feel free to disagree, that this poem is a lyric. There is a sense of a story but I feel the emotion behind losing someone who helped you along and being worried about how to make choices in life promote more of an emotional reaction to this song, as lyric poems are known for.

“Don’t Wanna Be Torn”

Maybe it’s the things I say
Maybe I should think before I speak
But I thought I knew enough
To know myself and do what’s right for me

And these wall I’m building now
You used to bring ’em down
And the tears I’m crying out
You used to wipe away

I thought you said it was easy
Listening to your heart
I thought you said I’d be okay
So why am I breaking apart
Don’t wanna be torn [4x]

Don’t make me choose between
What I want and what you think I need
‘Cause I’ll always be your little girl
But even little girls have got to dream
Now it all feels like a fight
You were always on my side
And the lonely I feel now
You used to make it go away

I thought you said it was easy
Listening to your heart
I thought you said I’d be okay
So why am I breaking apart
Don’t wanna be torn

Why is this all so confusing
Complicated and consuming
Why does all this make me angry
I wanna go back to being happy
These tears I’m crying now you used to wipe away

I thought you said it was easy
Listening to your heart
I thought you said I’d be okay
So why am I breaking apart
Don’t wanna be torn [8x]
