Hello, it’s me
I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet
To go over everything
They say that time’s supposed to heal ya
But I ain’t done much healing
Hello, can you hear me?
I’m in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free
I’ve forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet
There’s such a difference between us
And a million miles (By the one and only Adele)
I will admit that I wasn’t much of an Adele fan until 25 came out. Once “Hello” hit the airwaves and made it to my brain, I couldn’t get her out of my head. This song means different things to different people and was mainstreamed as a “break up song”. In a lot of ways, yes it is. For me, it’s like I’m breaking up with my relationship with the Triple Threat Disease. It’s been attached at the hip since age 10. Like glue or like a bad relationship. Hmm, now that I think of it “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga sounds like my battle with the Triple Threat Disease.
I will sing my butt off to this song. I can’t say that my singing voice is just like hers, if it was then life would be different. Again, I could’ve gone professional, but life changes very much. This nasty disease really overpowers me to the point of where I can’t chase this dream.
Back to the song, my relationship with the Triple Threat Disease is a constant ongoing battle that’s nastier than the latest celebrity divorce battle. So nasty, that I want to cut ties with it completely. Easier said than done with depression. I want to be “a million miles” away from my depression and it’s not always easy. This song actually puts me in a good mood. You may say: “Huh?” It does. It’s not weird. You don’t like being in an unhappy relationship, right? I don’t.
Another song that I love is Demi Lovato’s “You don’t do it for me anymore.” This to is a “break up song” and is what I would sing to my depression. You’re not wanted and I’m leaving you.
I see the future without you
The hell was I doing in the past?
Now that I’ve learned all about you
A love just like ours wouldn’t last
I won’t fall for your games
So don’t hate me when I say
Don’t do it for me anymore
Don’t do it for me anymore (By Demi Lovato)
I wish I could see the future without you. And I will certainly not fall for your games. We have no love for each other and you will love me when I say “You don’t do it for me anymore.” Take that, Triple Threat Disease! Take it to the bank.
