I’d like to run away from you, but if you never found me I would die,
I’d like to break the chains you put around me, but I know I never will,
You stay away and all I do is wonder why the hell I wait for you,
But when did common sense prevail for lovers when we know it never will,
Impossible to live with you, but I know, I could never live without you,
For whatever you do, I never, never, never want to be in love with anyone but you.
David Parker peruses . . .
How many relationships do you know that constantly break-up, then return to the mire of the codependent malady, a few months later? I call these BUNGIE JUMP Relationships. Can’t Stay. Can’t Leave. Bounce back. Try one more time.
Pop songs have a lyrical tradition of loss not love. We call them LOVE ALBUMS, Romantic Operas to intimate connection of the heart, revelling in heartbreak, not heart-warming mindfulness, or the concept that ‘everything is temporary’. We don’t want to hear that, it must last forever, or not at all.
The projection of fear, loss, low esteem, financial depletion or other such devices can keep you in an unhealthy relationship, even in the workplace. Listen to this haunting ‘love song’ of entrapment, capture and coda infusion. Would you call this LOVE?
If you identify with the lyrics, or feel at loss within your relationships, it may be that your emotional intelligences needs re-balancing instead of riding the bungie-jump of fear.
This classic tome comes highly recommended for adjustments.
