Staying with the just because I love it” theme:
Music is important to all of us, in some way or another. Whether we listen to pop music, rock music, classical, hip-hop, reggae, indie, electronic, dance, whatever, music is important to us whatever our taste.
My own taste is very eclectic; one day I will listen to nothing other than U2, whereas the next I am singing along to the Spice Girls. I used to share songs on a former blog – I can’t recall why I closed that blog down- I found it was an excellent way to explore the music I really love listening to and to share what a particular song actually means to me. I aim to re-introduce that to my blog, so be ready to be inundated with cheesy songs.
Starting this journey off is a song that I have shared on this blog before. The song is from 1982 – I was 11 – and it is by the Australian band Men At Work. The reason I love this song so much is because it cheers me up. It reminds me of a simpler time in my life, I was still in primary school, life was good and I was protected from the harsh realities of life by my parents and Aunty, whom I was always with. It’s such a fun song and my song of choice whenever I feel down, it never fails to cheer me up.
Watch Me Bleed Lyrics – Tears for Fears
Tears for Fears Watch Me Bleed Lyrics
Heaven comes to he who waits
But I know I’m getting nowhere
And all the deeds of yesterday
Have really helped to pave my way
Though there’s no one near me now
How come everyone can touch me
You see the torture on my brow
Relates to neither here nor now
Watch me bleed
Although my face is straight, it lies
My body feels the Pain and cries
Here the table is not bare
I am full but feeling empty
For all the warmth it feels so cold
For one so young I feel so old
Watch me bleed
It’s not allowed to be unkind
But still the hate lives in my mind
I’ll make no noise
I’ll hide my pain
I’ll close my eyes
I won’t complain
I’ll lie right back and take the blame
And trie to tell myself I’m living
And when it’s all been said or done
Where do I go ?
Where do I run ?
What’s left of me or anyone when we’ve denied the hurting ?

Whenever I hear this song I’m reminded of how vulnerable I was when I met my husband.
