Good morning! Welcome back to Suggest A Song Monday. Here are the rules: I suggest a song that I love and that I think you would love. You listen to it. Tell me what you think in the comments. Then, you also recommend one song to me and I will listen to it and tell you what I think. You don’t have to limit yourself to a particular genre, just any one song that you love.
Today we have Wake Up Alone by Amy Winehouse. The lyrics deal with a relationship that seems to be spiraling down quickly. The lyrics convey that feeling of having the heaviness of ongoing hearbreak and trying to do all you can not to think about it during the day; but at night the loneliness and emptiness wash over you; the lyrics are very creative and moving. The music and melody has that kind of 50’s lounge, diner-esque feel.
It’s ok in the day, I’m stayin’ busy/Tied up enough so I don’t have to wonder where is he/Got so sick of cryin’/So just lately/When I catch myself, I do a 180/I stay up, clean the house/At least I’m not drinkin’/Run around just so I don’t have to think about thinkin’/That silent sense of content/That everyone gets/Just disappears, soon as the sun sets/(chorus) His face in my dreams seizes my guts/He floods me with dread/Soaked to the soul/He swims in my eyes by the bed/Pour myself over him/Moon spillin’ in/And I wake up alone//If I was my heart, I’d rather be restless/Second I stop, the sleep catches up and I’m breathless/Cause this ache in my chest/Cause my day is done now/The dark covers me, and I can’t run now/My blood runnin’ cold, I stand before him/It’s all I can do to assure him/When he comes to me, I drip for him tonight/Drowned in me, we bathe under blue light/Chorus
