You Make Me Numb

crying1It’s time to reach for your hankies, and make sure you have some comfort food at the ready. Today might be a rather emotional day with the theme for this week’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY!

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme HURT/PAIN/AGONY/SUFFER.

cheated on.jpgThe song I have chosen today, does not specifically use any any of the words in Jim’s chosen theme – but it certainly is about hurt, pain, agony and suffering within a relationship. The kind that comes when feeling betrayed, used and forsaken. The video, that paints a very vivid story to go along with this song, gives you an idea of a someone who cares not for any kind of loyalty and exclusivity.

I think it is fabulous. It is very dramatic, so I try not to listen to it too often. But whenever I do, I still feel this was a fantastic musical creation by the immensely talented Veronicas. (Did I mention this duo are Australian?) If you have never heard this song before…let me warn you…the music starts at 40 seconds…and the incredible chorus starts at 1 minute 40 seconds. But it is worth your patience, this is a beautiful masterpiece, and encapsulates the hurt someone you love can inflict on you exquisitely – you won’t regret giving your attention to this one!

Wait until you see what happens to the guy at the end of the video!

Job well done
Standing ovation
Yeah you got what you wanted
I guess you won
And I don’t want to hear, they don’t know you like I do
Even I could’ve told you
But now we’re done’
Cause you play me like a symphony
Play me till your fingers bleed
I’m your greatest masterpiece
You ruin me
Later when the curtains drawn
And no one’s there for you back home
Don’t cry to me, you played me wrong
You ruin me
I know you thought
That I wouldn’t notice
You were acting so strange
I’m not that dumb
And in the end I hope she was worth it
I don’t care if you loved me, you make me numb

 

‘Cause you play me like a symphony
Play me till your fingers bleed
I’m your greatest masterpiece
You ruin me
Later when the curtains drawn
And no one’s there for you back home
Don’t cry to me, you played me wrong
You ruin me

We’re that song you wouldn’t sing
Just a broken melody
You’re killing me

You play me like a symphony
Play me till your fingers bleed
I’m your greatest masterpiece
You ruin me
Later when the curtains drawn
And no one’s there for you back home
Don’t cry to me you played me wrong
You ruin me

  1. It has been a source of mystery my entire life why some people can fall in love with someone who so clearly does not know what real love is and was never worth their affection in the first place.

    Real love is forever and will overcome any weaknesses. Real love sees beyond appearance and into the heart of the loved where it finds not only what it seeks, but what it seeks to avoid.

    The Veronicas are great artists, not just great singers. 🙂

    Hmmm…. ‘falling’ in love… that’s the problem: love should raise you up, not drag (or let) you down!

    1. That’s why I don’t think you should just follow your heart. You should use your head too.

      Emotions can be so very powerful. And when you meet someone and feel that incredible spark and find yourself wrapped up in the romance and excitement of it all…it is easy to be blind to concerning signs that the person you are besotted with is just treating you like a fast food chain meal.

      But then in all honesty Bob…as well, as those who want a lasting relationship based on trust and love, there are both men and women that just want a casual connection to satisfy their desires with no strings attached. I think if people make it very clear from the beginning what their expectations are, what their ideals are, and communicate openly, so that the other person does not feel deceived, betrayed, ruined.

      It’s a sad world when you have to figure out what someone wants from a relationship. When I was growing up, I just thought it would be like the friendship, teamwork, romance my parents shared. But I have had men say to me that they just want sex and nothing else. Which I find outrageous and I feel offended by. But I know of men and women who want to…”keep their options open” I have never understood quite why? Maybe in the hopes that one day some gorgeous wealthy man or woman will come along and fall for them???

      It’s all upside down and inside out! No wonder so many people are lost, lonely and downright unhappy.

      1. It has become more ‘common’ these days for people to want, or even expect, to only have what they want/like with no obligations. They want rights but are not prepared to pay or give up anything for them.

        Sadly there are also some people who are prepared to ‘support’ then in their selfishness and unrealistic expectations as they feel they kind of get something out of such a relationship.

        It is a shallow and unfulfilling relationship. Good things always come at a ‘price’. A good relationship takes time and effort – work in fact, but the rewards gained make that effort and sacrifice worth while.

        Fewer people see things this way it seems. Hold on tight to your standards and the examples your parents set or gave you. 🙂

  2. I have heard of The Veronicas before but only their name. This is the first time I have heard one of their songs, I think. I love the main singer’s vocals as they are really strong and very beautiful. Nice choice!

  3. First time hearing this song. I wasn’t sure if there were two women or they were using special effects. The video is excellent and what a way to use identical twins, where one is watching while he’s making the moves on the other woman. When they sing together, it is heavenly. Yes, I had to reach for the tissue, and yes, I’m glad he was thrown into a trunk 🙂
