Random Crap Tuesday 5/22

I went roaming around on the Youtube machine and found a song by Gotye. Apparently its about, “…from the perspective of the singer, he’s desperately tying to connect with a person who is emotionally damaged (“your heart’s a mess”) but they wont admit it to him or themselves, most likely as a defense mechanism. The singer pursues the love telling the person they can’t live like this and to let him love them even though he knows he shouldn’t (“makes no sense”). Pursuing a love so blindly when all signs point to tragedy.

So this is what’s running through my mind all day. This damn song. But I love it, because Gotye makes pretty music. :)

Gotye – Hearts A Mess

Pick apart

The pieces of your heart

And let me peer inside

Let me in
Where only your thoughts have been

Let me occupy your mind
As you do mine

You have lost

Too much love
To fear, doubt and distrust

(It’s not enough)
You just threw away the key

To your heart
You don’t get burned

(‘Cause nothing gets through)
It makes it easier
(Easier on you)
But that much more difficult for me
To make you see…

Love ain’t fair
So there you are
My love

Your heart’s a mess
You won’t admit to it
It makes no sense

But I’m desperate to connect

And you, you can’t live like this

Love ain’t safe
You won’t get hurt if you stay chaste
So you can wait
But I don’t wanna waste my love
