Gotye – “Hearts A Mess”

 

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

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

You have lost
(Too much love)
To fear, doubt and distrust
(It’s 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 can’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

This is probably my favorite Gotye song. It’s not easy for me to be open… not that I’ve had many opportunities to really open my heart to someone, but even in those rare chances I wasn’t able to. I feel like I’ve ruined many chances and there are a hundred things I would have done differently. Fear, doubt, and mistrust have definitely been factors. But maybe someday I can really be open to someone and maybe I can finally experience love.

Opens mouth to speak (haiku)

Opens mouth to speak
But no words escape my lips
Forever trapped in

Expressing my feelings, especially those of liking or even loving? It’s pretty much impossible. My fear of those feelings not being reciprocated to me are too great, and so I hold myself back. I keep telling myself that I need to open up and not be afraid of such things… but it just doesn’t happen. I’ve been let down in other ways so many times that I don’t want to experience it in this way as well.

Maybe someday I won’t be afraid.
