DAY 47 – Pretty cool video for a break-up song:
I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
A typical scenario wherein exes don’t remain as friends, the song narrates a love story gone wrong.
In an ideal world, perhaps, a former couple can stay friends.
Not saying that it’s impossible to befriend an ex though. After all, the underlying reason of the break up plays a big part—
… personality clash?
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember
… commitment issues, time and distance, disagreeable friends and/ or families?
You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over
… or maybe a third party?
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know
As the reality is, a former flame eventually turns into someone that you used to know. Worse, a stranger.
(…and I revert to the fact that Gotye’s song is pretty cool. Or maybe an “ugly-kind-of”.)
