A song from the point of view of a woman in a bad relationship


As opportunities go it was a good one
And we may never see it again
In the dark of the night windows are mirrors
And there's nowhere to hide from the rain
You can do what you want, it can't hurt me
Cuts and bruises will heal over time
But the lies that you tell are a tale of personal hell
As long as it's hurting, he's mine

And you can't tell the saints from the sinners
Gonna feed you or have you for dinner
In her mind she's a bitch, she's a grass, she's a snitch
And the ice that she's on's getting thinner

Ooh, that's not love
No that's not love
That isn't love
Ooh, hoo
Ooh, that's not love
No that's not love
That isn't love..

You shine like a light in the darkness
Growing cold and burned out by the brightness of day
You pay for the rides on your big rollercoaster
You secretly wish you could just walk away
There's a place in your heart for the madness, yes there is
Which you just couldn't leave if you tried
And you know very well it feels safe in your personal hell
Won't you please join me inside

And just like mummy and daddy
She can't tell the good from the baddy
Moon and stars are aligned so she tries to be kind
But she can't understand why she feels so sad

Ooh, that's not love
No that's not love
That isn't love
Ooh, hoo
Ooh, that's not love
No that's not love
That isn't love..

Stan Koretski London, UK

It had been a long time since he felt so exhausted. How could he describe the lethargy, apathy? He tried hard to force himself to do simple things, but he couldn't. It was pointless. He needed rest and his body was making sure he got rest. So for the third time that day he lay down, put his head on the pillow and closed his eyes. His internal world was intact, forbidding sleep, providing songs. ... more
