A little something about me (2) My weird little thingy with music.

There’s this old song that goes this way.

I don’t wanna, talk about it.

How you broke my heart.

If I stay here just a little bit longer

If I stay here would you listen

To my heart…..oh my heart.

I think I was ten years old when I first heard this song and I didn’t know who the artiste was then but the song always made me cry.

I write songs and I love music but one weird thing about me is that unlike most people, I can’t go to bed with cool music playing. You know that type that lulls most of you to sleep? It keeps me awake and alert. I can sleep soundly with the T.V on but not with any kind of music playing. I would just think and think about nothing and everything.

I just mentioned this song that I later found out was originally sang by Rod Stewart because I hadn’t heard it in a while and I just did. Sometimes, you hurt so much that you just want to hug yourself and talk to nobody. Even the person that has hurt you. Your heart is bleeding and you are thinking it is partly your fault that you are hurting or you shouldn’t even allow yourself to hurt that much and you are confused. You want the person to understand without you saying much that you are hurting and you need some love, some encouragement or maybe a heart-felt apology.

No matter how close you are with someone, how great you guys understand each other; there would always be the down times when it seems like you guys are total strangers. It is how you deal with these situations that makes what you guys have stronger.

Yeah, and I just realized that the song still brought tears to my eyes. Do you have any song that does that to you or should I feel embarrassed for sharing this?

And yes, it is better if you talk about it.

  1. I had to go look up the track and listen. I do remember it but i guess i never listened to the words. Its a sad love song. and sad love songs make you don't worry, you are not weird!
    Billy Ocean's "There 'll be sad songs to make you cry" does it for me.

  2. That is one of my favorites of all times. I really used to love Rod Stewart. In fact, I dreamed I was married to him numerous times in the 70's and 80's.

  3. @Ginger: Oh! thank you sooo much. I listened to the song. It touched me and made me cry a little. Thanks again. Hugs.

    @Linda: Ma, I love the song too only that it makes me sad. Rod must have had that effect on a lot of women then. He used to be hot! Thanks for the comment.

  4. I tear up on this song too. And a few others! And no. Do not be embarrasded. Thats what blogging is all about! It is better if you talk about it!
    Happy New Year Lily!

  5. HAPPY NEW YEAR......hmmm...not really....i simply enjoy them & forget...but the popular song by Tosin martins...really gets to me though but not to point of tears.

  6. Cat's in the Cradle makes me tear up every time I hear it as I think of my son...
