Almost lover


Almost lover

Your fingertips across my skin

The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images
You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick

Well, I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you’d want the same for me

Một cảm giác chua chát, xót xa khi nhớ lại mình “đã từng nghĩ rằng”… anh ấy muốn mình hạnh phúc.

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images
And when you left, you kissed my lips
You told me you would never, never forget
These images

No

Well, I’d never want to see you unhappy
I thought you’d want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So you’re gone and I’m haunted
And I bet you are just fine

Did I make it that
Easy to walk right in and out
Of my life?

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should have known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

Bình thản hát lời mở đầu “Almost lovers always…“, ngắt quãng, kết thúc với vết cứa vào tim “do”.

Belong to me

belongI belong to me…

It’s not that I don’t wanna share my life with you baby

It’s just that I’m the one I need to be true to baby

And I won’t give up me to be part of you

It’s not that I don’t wanna have you in my life baby

It’s just you gotta know that it’s got to be right baby

Before I open up my heart to you

I don’t need somebody to complete me I complete myself

Nobody’s got to belong to somebody else

I belong to me I don’t belong to you

My heart is my possession I’ll be my own reflection

I belong to me I’m one not half of two

And if you’re gonna love me You should know this baby

I belong to me

Cô ấy khẳng định, tâm hồn và thể xác là của riêng cô ấy. Cho đi và nhận lại, cô ấy sẽ tự phán xét mình. Không đợi chờ day dứt như trong 4 In the Morning “I can’t be complete, can you give me more”, cô ấy nói rằng “I complete myself”. Chẳng phải cô ấy đang tâm sự rằng mình là người cứng rắn trong cuộc tình tan vỡ?

Đáng tiếc là không.

“And if you’re gonna love me. You should know this baby. I belong to me”

Liệu ai nghe được ẩn chứa nỗi đau tuyệt vọng bên trong?

I gotta let you know before I let you in, baby

That who I am is not about who I am with, baby

That don’t mean I don’t wanna be here with you

I do

I don’t need somebody to complete me

I want you to know

I’ll give up my love but I’m not giving up my soul

Love don’t mean changing who you are to be

Who somebody wants you to be

Nobody’s got to belong to nobody

I belong to me I don’t belong to you

My heart is my possession I’ll be my own reflection

I belong to me I don’t belong to you

My heart is my possession I’ll be my own reflection

I belong to me I’m one not half of two

And if you gonna love me

You should know this baby

I belong to me
