    Mit einer Coverversion von Natalie Imbruglia’s Torn versucht es die britische Punk-Rock-Band Neck Deep. So weit, so akzeptabel. Musikalisch ist der Unterschied zum Original recht spärlich ausgefallen, einzig Ben Barlows Gesang kann nicht überzeugen. Zumeist wirkst seine Stimme verkrampft, so als ob er sich mit gewissen Tonhöhen des Songs richtiggehend quälen muss.

    Zumindest das Musikvideo kann man als originell bezeichnen, wurde doch das Set des Originalsvideos nachgebaut und einige Szenen daraus nachgedreht, was man durchaus als liebevolle Reminiszenz betrachten kann. Unterm Strich kann sich die Coverversion jedoch nicht mit dem Original messen. Zu sehr stört der Gesang, der einfach nicht zur Melodie passen möchte.

    I thought I saw a girl brought to life
    She was warm, she came around and she was dignified
    She showed me what it was to cry

    Well, you couldn’t be that girl I adored
    You don’t seem to know
    Seem to care what your heart is for
    No, I don’t know her anymore

    There’s nothing where we used to lie
    The conversation has run dry
    That’s what’s going on
    Nothing’s fine, I’m torn

    I’m all out of faith
    This is how I feel
    I’m cold and I am shamed
    Lying naked on the floor

    Illusion never changed
    Into something real
    I’m wide awake and I can see
    The perfect sky is torn
    You’re a little late, I’m already torn

    So I guess the fortune teller’s right
    I should have seen just what was there
    And not some holy light
    But you crawled beneath my veins and now
    I don’t care, I have no luck
    I don’t miss it all that much
    There’s just so many things
    That I can’t touch, I’m torn

    I’m all out of faith
    This is how I feel, I’m cold and I am shamed
    Lying naked on the floor
    Illusion never changed
    Into something real
    I’m wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn

    You’re a little late
    I’m already torn

    Torn

    There’s nothing where we used to lie
    My inspiration has run dry
    And that’s what is goin‘ on
    Nothin’s right, I’m torn

    I’m all out of faith
    This is how I feel
    I’m cold and I am shamed
    Lying naked on the floor
    Illusion never changed
    Into something real
    I’m wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn

    I’m all out of faith
    This is how I feel, I’m cold and I’m ashamed
    Bound and broken on the floor
    You’re a little late
    I’m already torn
    Torn
