Oh my gosh, I am SO stressed. Because my separation, again, has reminded me why I am separated.
Coming back from a mini vacation has left me realising that I am clearly still separated. I had to jump right back into real life. Separation and parenting doesn't give any mercy or breaks. Even at 4 am.
So this weeks is full of new songs and meaning to that of being separated! You got a good mix of country, soul, pop and r&b this week!
1. Burning House by Cam
"I had a dream about a burning house"
"You were stuck inside. I lay beside you and pulled you close"
"I couldn't get you out."
"Love isn't all that it seems and the two of us went up in smoke"
"I'll stay here with you until this dream is gone"
"Been wondering all night, I've been sleepwalking"
"Trying to take what's lost and broke and make it right"
"Too close to the fire"
"I see you at a party and you look the same"
"But it's the only place that I can hold you tight in this burning house"
"I could take you back but people don't really change"
"Wish that we could go back in time I'd be the one you thought you'd find"
"Flames are getting bigger now in this burning house"
2. Bartender by Lady Antebellum
"Eight o'clock on Friday night, I'm still at home"
"All my girls just keep on blowing up my phone"
"Saying come on, ain't worth the pain"
"Do what you gotta do to forget his name"
"Now, there's only one thing left for me to do-- slip on my favourite dress and sky high leather boots"
"Check the mirror one last time-- kiss the past goodbye"
"What I'm really needing now is a double shot of Crown"
"Chase that disco ball around until I don't remember"
"Go until they cut me off-- Wanna get a little lost in the noise, in the lights"
"Hey bartender, pour them hot tonight"
"Til the party and music and the truth collide"
"Bring it til his memory fades away! Hey, bartender"
3. The One I Gave My Heart To by Aaliyah
"How could the one I gave my heart to break my heart so bad, make me feel so sad"
"How could the one who made me happy. how could you hurt me like that"
" Won't somebody tell me so I can understand if you love me"
"How could the one who said, "I love you", how could the one I gave my world to just throw my world away? Say the things you say? Break this heart of mine, tell me?"
" How could the one I was so true to just tell me lies?"
"How could the one I gave my heart to-- How could you just walk out the door?"
" How could you be so cold to me? When I gave you everything?"
"All my love, all I had inside-- Take my dreams from me?"
"I thought we had forever, I can't understand"
"How could you not love me anymore?"
Bring such misery?"
"How could the one I shared my dreams, how could the love that brought such pleasure
"How could you just walk out the door?"
"Won't somebody tell me? Somebody tell me please How could you do that to me? Tell me!"
"How could you not love me anymore?"
"If you love me how could you hurt me like that? "
4. Stone Cold by Demi Lovato
"Stone cold, stone cold
"You see me standing, but I'm dying on the floor"
" Maybe if I don't cry, I won't feel anymore"
" God knows I tried to feel happy for you"
" Know that I am, even if I can't understand, I'll take the pain"
"If happy is her, I'm happy for you"
"Give me the truth, me and my heart we'll make it through"
" I was your amber, but now she's your shade of gold"
" You're dancing with her, while I'm staring at my phone"
" Don't wanna be stone cold"
"I'm happy for you"
" I wish I could mean this but here's my goodbye"
5. Used to Love You by Gwen Stefani
" Never thought this would happen"
"I let it sink in, you're gone. I don't know, know what I'm feeling"
"I must be dreaming, you're gone"
" Suitcase, band-aids, you can keep all the memories"
"Pulling back out the driveway, you go, I'll stay"
"I thought you loved me the most"
"I thought I was the best thing that ever happened to you"
"I don't know why I cry"
"But I think it's 'cause I remembered for the first time since I hated you that I used to love you"
" Are you gone?"
" There were no boundaries. What, you just pushed me too far"
" I guess nobody taught you, nobody taught you how to love"
"You know I was the best thing that ever happened to you"
"Oh, now look at what you lost, oh"
6. Hold Up by Beyonce
"Hold up! They don't love you like I love you"
"Slow down! They don't love you like I love you"
"Back Up! They don't love you like I love you"
"Step down! They don't love you like I love you"
"Can't you see there's no other man above you?"
"What a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you"
"Something don't feel right because it ain't right especially coming up after midnight"
"How did it come down to this?"
" Scrolling through your call list-- I don't wanna lose my pride but.."
"I'm going to f*&k me up a b*&^$h"
"Know that I kept it sexy, you know I kept it fun"
"There is something I am missing, maybe my head for one"
"Hey, this such a shame you let this good love go to waste"
"I always keep the top tier, five star, back seat loving' in the car"
"Like make that wood, like that would holly like boulevard"
"I hop up out my bed and get my swag on"
"What's up? What's up? What's up?!"
