We are young.

24 May

We seldom listen to the lyrics. A song catches on if it’s got a nice beat or a nice melody, the lyrics can be as crap as they want.

(Especially some rokkie-sokkie-bokkie-baby-chocolates-songs)

Last week, I’ve listened to the lyrics of the song “We are young” that’s currently being played to death on radio.

Give me a second

I need to get my story straight

My friends are in the bathroom

getting higher than the empire state

my lover she is waiting for me

just across the bar

My seat’s been taken by some sunglasses

asking ’bout a scar

and I know I gave it to you months ago

I know you’re trying to forget

but between the drinks and subtle things

the holes in my apologies

you know I’m trying hard to take it back

so if by the time the bar closes

and you feel like falling down

I’ll carry you home


She’s trying to forget, you’re trying to take it back. You offer to carry her home . . . after giving her the scar in the first place?

Abuse stays in the heart long after the physical wounds have healed.

“You” should not be allowed close to her. “You” are not worthy to be in her presence.

Enough bitchin’ for one day. Time to dismount.

    My daughter and I were talking about exactly this song the other day too!

    We (and I include myself here) must draw the line, because we will only be abused if we allow it. And we allow it sometimes way too long 😦

    Jonkwees gee nie toestemming om net te maak wat jy wil nie. Ek stem 100% saam met jou opmerkings.
