“Can you help me? I’m bent
I’m so scared that I’ll never
Get put back together
Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end (how we will end)
With you and me ending, without understanding”
It’s an old song who’s performed by my favorite band, which I often listened when I was in junior high. I just love the vocalist’s voice and their music. Though, I don’t hear any hits from them anymore, this particular song still echoes in heart, especially at this time where I can relate well.
If you never heard this song before, try listening it. It’s really a nice song that full of emotions. The song tells the desperation of ‘him’ whose relationship is already on the edge but still wants to fix it, even though both of parties are already broken enough. He’s tired but still wants to work it out somehow, but she just didn’t show an understanding and thinks he’s too needy. It’s kind of sad situation, where the other party just don’t want to listen and try to see how he’s trying his best to match her expectation.
But, the song is more than a sad love song. It’s giving a strong vibe and emotion about a man who knew his relationship is beyond repaired yet still trying to fix it. The desperation and the deep love are conveyed through the beginning till the ending. He’s kind of saying “Both of us are broken, why not being broken together then”. It’s really touching, for me.
