An album finally loses a main song.
I am nothing now, and it's been too long...

My Heart is the 10th and final track on All We Know Is Falling. While Paramore by genre is not a Christian band, the band themselves are very religious, and their faith is something that's always been important to them. While at surface level one could think this is a love song, but it's about Hayley's relationship with God and how she's strayed away from religion at times but tries to find her way back to him.
This is a really nice song, and I'm a bit sad it's the first non-bonus song to be leaving, I figured a debut album track would go out first, but I think there are others that were more suitable. The main complaint about this song comes from Josh's screaming heard in the outro, and while I could never ever listen to screamo, I don't mind it that much, since Hayley's voice is still in the forefront. Fun fact: Josh had much more screaming on the album but most of it was removed before the album was released, possibly to make it more accessible to listeners? I dunno.
"Is there a commentary even needed? "This heart, it beats, beats for only you, my heart is yours"... If I ever fall in love I'd definitely get that tattooed, haha. Also this right here : "

"I can't not give this a 10. This always felt like the heart of the album. It's just beautifully written, sang and performed. I can even appreciate the screamo part."
"Just emo angsty goodness. I could do without Josh’s screamo at the end though."
"I know this will get slaughtered for the screamo parts but I actually don’t mind them and I never got that genre. Although it kind of reminds me of another female fronted rock song that does the screamo thing really well from 2005 too -
"This would be a 9/10 if it wasn’t for the Tasmanian Devil sounding screamo bullshit at the end."

"This is kind of heartbreaking, and really good as well. The guy (Josh?) in the background pairs well with Hayley’s vocals on the chorus. Surprised I liked this so much, I don’t ever really listen to this either."
"The male vocals at around 2:45 are… something."
"Nice emotional moment that might do well without the growling part that will likely scare everyone away, ddd. I never connected with it much but of course don't mind the hardcore metal moment. "

"Cute but I can’t get too enthused about a song they’d go on to rewrite and improve a million times"
