this is one of the songs I’ve had on repeat lately… and yes, I added to the lyrics, but really it’s just stating the bottom line, not that the guy is any better… (watch below to make sense of this post ) and it scares me that it could have been me back in the day. I wouldn’t have actually been kissing someone else’s boyfriend, of that I am pretty sure. but I think just being good friends and hanging out/talking online or whatever is a slippery slope.
looking back I guess one might say that the relationship between me and Mr. D could have some similarities. but I don’t think it counts when I had first claim to him (I don’t think it’s any mistake that he met me promptly after coming to the States, and that I was the main constant in his life from then on through the years, even with our ins and outs ) and there was no actual relationship going on when we were chatting across the ocean, from any part of the triangle. but maybe just a little grey area? I guess you could watch our recounting of it (I think it starts at around 18:00) and decide for yourself. at the time nothing seemed off at all, but like I said, looking back and knowing what I know now, maybe…
the point is, “the heart is deceitful above all things” and we are never, ever short of justifications for pretty much whatever we want to do, particularly in the “all’s fair in love and war” game.
people allow themselves to be lead around by their emotions and feelings, and too often their commitments are only as good as their mood that day.
and it’s sad.
the truth is, I really miss flirting (can anyone relate to that?). Mr. D and I talk about it periodically – when we got married it was like trying to turning off our “game” or something (in relation to other people). it can be hard to flirt with each other when you’ve been with someone for a while, but we do manage here and there do you have any tips for flirting with your spouse???
these harmonies rock and I completely forgot how much I love the cup game!
and of course the original – just like with Somebody that I Used to Know, I like the cover and the original each for their own reasons.
I kind of really hate her top. but I super love her dance walk. good gravy.
