"Say Something" lyrcis

I don't know if this song is in heavy rotation in all of your radio markets yet, but it is here and I feel it really expresses the anguish some of us are going through...not wanting to leave our ADHD partners, but feeling at the end of our rope.  And then silent or in denial...

I have not closed the door on my relationship, but it may have been closed for me.  2 weeks ago I left his house after a fight (he's pissed cuz he feels blamed for everything, I'm pissed cuz I feel neglected and feel he needs to get evaluated for ADHD...) and I have not heard from him since.

Here are the lyrics...but I recommend listening to the song...so sad, so powerful...makes me bawl every time.

 

A Great Big World (featuring Christina Aguilera)


"Say Something"

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
I'll be the one, if you want me to.
Anywhere, I would've followed you.
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

And I am feeling so small.
It was over my head
I know nothing at all.

And I will stumble and fall.
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you.
Anywhere, I would've followed you.
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

And I will swallow my pride.
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you.
And anywhere, I would have followed you.
Oh-oh-oh-oh say something, I'm giving up on you.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
Say something...

Katy Perry couldn't have said it better

"It Takes Two"


Is Mercury in retrograde?
Or is that the excuse that I've always made?
'Cause I wanna blame you,
But I can only blame myself

Yeah, it's easy to throw you under the bus
Or call you crazy, while filling my cup
I say these things to hurt you
But I only hurt myself
Oh, I can only take responsibility for me

It takes two, two sides to every story
Not just you
I can't keep ignoring
I admit half of it, I'm not that innocent, oh yeah

It takes two, two sides to every story
Not just me
You can't keep ignoring
But let me be first baby to say "I'm sorry", "I'm sorry"

I face my demons, yeah, I paid my dues
I had to grow up, I wish you could too
I wanted to save you, but I can only save myself

Oh, I can only be the change I want to see
Yeah, to see

It takes two, two sides to every story
Not just you
I can't keep ignoring
I admit half of it, I'm not that innocent, yeah ohh

It takes two, two sides to every story
Not just me
You can't keep ignoring
But let me be first baby to say "I'm sorry", "I'm sorry"

I point my finger but it does me no good
I look in the mirror and it tells me the truth, yeah
Why all these lessons always learned the hard way
Is it too late to change?

Ohh, It takes two, two sides to every story
Not just you
I can't keep ignoring
And I admit half of it, I'm not that innocent, oh

It takes two, two sides to every story
Not just me
You can't keep ignoring
But let me be first baby to say "I'm sorry", "I'm sorry", "I'm sorry"

Agreed

I totally agree.  I don't at all dismiss the fact that my anger and negativity helped sink our ship.  Relationships take a lot of work and they take BOTH people willing to try. I wish I knew then what I know now about all of this.  Then maybe things wouldn't have got so bad...but..."you do the best you can with what you know.  When you know better, you do better".

This one speaks volumes to me...

Sweet Nothing by Calvin Harris ft Florence Welch

You took my heart and you held it in your mouth
And, with the word all my love came rushing out
And, every whisper it's the worst, emptied out by a single word
There is a hollow in me now

[ CHORUS ]
So I put my faith in something unknown,
I've been living on such sweet nothing,
But Im trying to hope with nothing to hold,
I'm living on such sweet nothing.
And its hard to learn,
And its hard to love,
When youre giving me such sweet nothing,
Sweet nothing,
Sweet nothing,
Youre giving me such sweet nothing.

It isnt easy for me to let it go
Cause
I swallow every single word
And, every whisper, every sigh
eats away at this heart of mine.
And there is a hollow in me now

[ CHORUS ]
So I put my faith in something unknown,
I've been living on such sweet nothing,
But Im trying to hope with nothing to hold,
I'm living on such sweet nothing.
And its hard to learn,
And its hard to love,
When youre giving me such sweet nothing,
Sweet nothing,
Sweet nothing,
Youre giving me such sweet nothing.

And it's not enough
To tell me that you care,
When
We both know the Words are empty air.
You Give Me Nothing!
Uoooh
Uoooh
Uoooh
Nothing!

Uoooh
Uoooh
Uoooh
Sweet Nothing
Uoooh
Uoooh
Uoooh
Sweet Nothing
