I’m really enjoying The Wreckers these days… maybe because I can relate to “Leave the Pieces” so well. “Drag out the heartache…” – there’s a phrase most women can relate to.
I listened to it from their website more than once last night and was singing it to myself all morning. When I got in the car and started it, I was still singing the song and it was also on the radio – I was suddenly singing in sync with the radio. Freaky.
I think my favorite part is, “you’re not sure that you love me but you’re not sure enough to let me go.” That harkens back to more than one relationship in my life.
Of course, years later I hear how he couldn’t understand why I didn’t know how much he loved me… of course he loved me… how could I not have known that? I guess because you never told me that. And losing me was the worst mistake of his life. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Seems I just hear the same song, different verse, over and over again. Not sure what the lesson is there for me, but I’m trying to figure it out before I get into another relationship.
Men are always more in love with me in retrospect than they were at the time I was with them. It’s very odd, really. I think this must mean I’m very hard to actually be with, but the good times must leave some intense memories that they long for later. Unfortunately, I don’t know why I’m hard to be with at the time, or why I make such a good memory, so I can’t address it.
As the song says…
“It’s alright. I’ll be fine. Don’t worry about this heart of mine. Just take your love and hit the road. There’s nothing you can do or say. You’re gonna break my heart anyway. So just leave the pieces when you go.”
