Breaking Up...Ouch Spoken With Depth

Greetings....

I am a music junkie. 24/7 I have music playing in my home. I do not watch TV or movies. I have explored music for years. I will be writing alot here about "my songs". I hope you enjoy your journey with me!

Matchbox Twenty has a song called "Rest Stop" off the "Mad Season" CD that really speaks of that moment when we know it is over. I can see this happening and feel the resolve. Some songs just hit the spot so right!

"Just three miles from the rest stop and she slams on the breaks. She said I tried to be but I'm not, and could you please collect your things. I don't wanna be cold, I don't wanna be cruel but I gotta find more than what's happening with you".

"She said while you were sleeping I was listening to the radio and wondering what you're dreaming when it came to mind that I didn't care. So I thought, hell if it's over I had better end it quick or I could lose my nerve. Are you listening? Can you hear me? Have you forgotten"?

I love the wording "when it came to mind that I didn't care". I have felt this way in relationships and it was difficult to come to terms with. That moment when I knew it was over...

"Mad Season" is an awesome CD full of music that speaks to the heart. They are an amazing band and if you have not heard their music this CD is a good way to become aquainted with them.

Breaking up can be a blessing. At times it is not a two way street and one person is not feeling blessed at all. Melissa Etheridge speaks about this with so much feeling that it tears at my heart when I hear this song. "Watching You" is on her 1st album, "Melissa Etheridge".

"That's a good question, why am I standing out here alone? I guess I don't know enough to come in from the rain. I was watching your window from here below, I think I just might stay here all day.
Cause I gotta do something. If I can't love you, I don't want to love you. If I can't hold you I don't want to be thinking of you. And if you don't want me I don't want to want you. And if you won't see me I don't know what to do, but oh keep watching you, until I see right through. Oh I keep watching you".

She says it so right here. "If I can't love you, I don't want to love you". Ouch...That hurts just hearing it! She is soft spoken while singing this song also and that adds to the depth of her obvious pain.

Melissa has put out 12 albums. I enjoy all of her music. Her 1st is, in my opinion her finest work. No other album displays the range and depth experienced on "Melissa Etheridge".

Another song that touches me about lost love is by Wynonna Judd. In the song "My Strongest Weakness" off her "Wynonna" album, she sings about a one sided break up. The worst kind as far as I am concerned. The pain is obvious when she sings;

"He was my strongest weakness. I surrendered heart and soul, it's gonna be a long, long time 'til I regain control. I'm still a prisoner. Held captive by his memory. He was my strongest weakness. And I'm afraid he'll always be".

She has such an amazing voice and it is well displayed in this song. I love the entire album. It is the 1st album she put out after her mother retired and Wynonna went solo. It is well worth a listen!
I hope you enjoy the music I have brought up in this hub...more to come!

      Nice...so much of Melissa Etheridge's work is anguish set to music. "Breathe" comes to mind. But I think my favorite of her's is still "Come to My Window." Any given heartache should be wrapped in a line that goes, "you don't know how far I'd go, or how much I can take, just to reach you." I can apply it in 10 different ways, I think she's a genius.
