Tears for Fears announces new album and releases first single

The British duo Tears For Fears formed by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith announced “The Tipping Point”, their first studio album in 17 years. The band released the title track and revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone that the lyrics were inspired by the death of Orzabal’s wife ““It came at a time when my (late) wife was very ill. I was watching her become a ghost of her former self. So the song’s narrator is in a hospital ward looking at people about to cross the threshold that we call death,” he said.

The Tipping Point lyrics:

You Know That I Can’t Love You More X 2
Silver Tongue They’ll Soon Be Gone
When The Sunlight Hits The Room
Lay Down With Them If You Want
Watch Their Breath And Feel The Cold
Raise You Hand
Bite You Tongue
Conversation Is Over And Done
Will You Let Them Out?
Will You Let Them In?
Will You Ever Know When It’s The Tipping Point?
So Who’s That Ghost Knocking At My Door?
You Know That I Can’t Love You More
What’s That Shape Climbing Over My Wall?
You Know That I Can’t Love You More
Winter Done They’ll Soon Be Gone
From This Unforgiving Place
To That Vague And Distant Void
Where The Sunlight Splits The I
Life Is Cruel
Life Is Tough
Life Is Crazy Then It All Turns To Dust
Will You Let Them Out?
Will You Let Them In?
Will You Ever Know When It’s The Tipping Point?
So Who’s That Ghost Knocking At My Door?
You Know That I Can’t Love You More
What’s That Shape Climbing Over My Wall?
You Know That I Can’t Love You More
