Hearts a Mess

I love music by Gotye.  Their eclectic folk sound and lyrical conversions are right up my ally. I know I just lost my “black” card, but I don’t care. I have always been outside the box culturally. ANYWAY… I just wanted to share this particular track called “Hearts a Mess.” While listening to it I imagine someone reaching out to touch their significant other, only to be shrugged away because the other is emotionally distant and lost and s/he doesn’t even realize it.  This is a hard place to be with another person because there is nothing that you can do to make it better or different. They have to be ready, willing, and proactive about whatever pain they are experiencing. You can be supportive, but the other person has to be willing to accept your support. It’s going to hurt…. mostly you.  Be willing to accept that too!

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
Its 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

Your heart’s a mess
You won’t admit to it
It makes no sense
But I’m desperate to connect
And you, you cant’t live like this

Your heart’s a mess
You won’t admit to it
It makes no sense
But I’m desperate to connect
And you cant’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
