Marillion - Splintering Heart Lyrics




There's a hot hard hurt
Burning under her skin
And it pricks her like thorns
And it's needles and pins
And it twists in her body
And I know what it is
And I'm paying in pain
But it's the cost of the high
'Till the weight of the secret
And the weight of the lie
Makes my heart want to burst
Feel the ache as time goes by
Getting better and worse
Getting better and worse

And there's a screw that I tighten
As I dream of the kiss
And it twists and it cuts me
And you know what it is?
It's a fragment of love
From a splintering heart
And it tears her apart
But not as much as this

So you save up your tears
For the moments alone
'Till the splinters you gather
Leave you glass-hard and numb
And the same sun is shining
On the old and the young
On the saints and the sinners
On the weak and the strong

And there's a burning and freezing
And a cross for a kiss
So she learns to stop dreaming
And you know how it is

With these fragments of love
And this splintering heart
With the fragments
And this splintering heart

    There's a hot hard hurt

  23. Stefan Müller

    Like it.Shivers down my spine. ..Splintering heart

  24. yone1968

    Yes mister, The album Brave and Marbles are masterpieces ones! 😁 believe me.

  25. Gus Flannagan

    Love this song and the album. But when I listen to tracks from Marillian albums made after Holidays in Eden on Spotify they just sound boring or just plain weird and experimental. Did they actually do anything after this that I might like?

    Gus Flannagan

    +RealityCheck6T9 I have to agree, I've given up trying to like anything they did after Holidays in Eden. I wouldn't call it "wanky" though!

    RealityCheck6T9

    @Gus Flannagan Lol it definitely is at points. Even the songs I like I get annoyed by how much they drag on. Even this song I get annoyed by how much they presume on the listener's time and attention

    Repsychler 808

    Gus Flannagan Marbles.

    Mikkel Olsen

    Gus Flannagan what about the F.E.A.R album.

  26. Monkey Business

    I remember when I was 15 and discovered this record. First time I heard this song I was in my bed with my brain so focused on the music that I literally jumped off the bed when I heard the guitar break :)

    Mikkel Olsen

    Im 14 and i love almost all marillion songs. My dad always hear marillion but i just recently began liking them

    Andrei Ilinescu

    @Mikkel Olsen You're on the right path. Keep going.

    Kate Murphy

    Monkey Business I remember that an old friend of mine sent this to me while I was in graduate school in Chicago.

  27. yone1968

    Marillion - Splintering Heart...great song...great solo,from the album Holidays in Eden release in 1991....enjoy!

  31. kaelie monster

    this song iss epic, i am trying to figure out how to describe it properly but there are no words that i know of that will do this justice, this song makes me feel things

    jebra7

    kaelie monster speaking from my heart!

  32. Packgrog Vinyl

    I haven't listened to this in probably 20 years now. I like it better now than I ever did back in the 90's.

    Gus Flannagan

    I was the same, I forgot about it for the best part of 20 years, then bought the CD recently. I liked it before but now I'm addicted.

    Huguyguy

    Packgrog Vinyl probably because with music getting terribly bad over the years we all realised what real musicians really are.

  33. peepsk771

    Love it!!

  34. ToNi ToN Music

    one of the best alternative rock songs ever

    itkojecockot

    Marillion are Neo-Progressive Rock.....

  35. BFBeast666

    Wonderful song. "Holidays..." is my fave Hogarth album. Perfect blend of hooks and feeling.

  36. Vshadelore

    Most certainly one of my favourite Marillion songs. Truly inspiring and heartfelt

  37. yone1968

    loll...o.k. thanks

  38. Samuel McCandless
