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
