This song has long been a favourite of mine. It speaks to me and my feeling on how we are all fragile and flawed, and the writer faces this head on.
It seems as though he’s writing/singing of cheating.. definitely lying.. and certainly not who he wants to be. Or what he wanted to be.
I’ve never been cheated on and I’ve never cheated. But at 38, it’s all around me. All around. My best friend has cheated, and is now on her own dating and rebuilding a love life. The song strikes me as very close to her truth. Things she has expressed. I love her and hope with everything in me she can love again and be true to that.
