MY SONG CHOICE:
I chose Torn because she sings out her disappointment and frustration with her failing relationship. “Well you couldn’t be the man I adored” and “illusions never changed into something real” both speak to the let down of expectations not being met. The lyrics are full of pain and frustration. In a way she is grieving the loss of her dreams which I think really embodies this card.

This is how I feel
I’m cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor”
