Finally I Can See You Crystal Clear ~ #LifeUnmasked

Songs express my heart so well when it’s a swirl of competing emotions. I love this song right now, because it speaks of so much more than a broken heart. It isn’t merely the words of an angry jilted lover. It mourns the tragedy and betrayal of the deliberate misuse of one’s power over another and describes the consequences.

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch, and it’s bringin’ me out the dark
Finally I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out, and I’ll lay your shit bare

See how I’ll leave with every piece of you
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do
There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch, and it’s bringin’ me out the dark

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinkin’ that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling

We could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it
(Tears are gonna fall)
To the beat
(Rolling in the deep)

Baby, I have no story to be told
But I’ve heard one on you, and I’m gonna make your head burn
Think of me in the depths of your despair
Make a home down there as mine sure won’t be shared

(You’re gonna wish you)
The scars of your love
(Never had met me)
Remind me of us
(Tears are gonna fall)
They keep me thinking
(Rolling in the deep)
That we almost had it all
(You’re gonna wish you)
The scars of your love
(Never had met me)
They leave me breathless
(Tears are gonna fall)
I can’t help feeling
(Rolling in the deep)

We could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it
(Tears are gonna fall)
To the beat
(Rolling in the deep)

Life: unmasked buttonOn Wednesdays, I host a link-up for anyone willing to step away from the pretense that all is well, who will take off their mask with me, and write naked. Being real about our hard days has tremendous capacity to encourage others in their hard days. Life isn’t always good, but we can help each other get through the tough times when we acknowledge the truth. Sometimes the tears are gonna fall.

If you’ve written anything unmasked, link up below! Please link back to this post so your readers can find others willing to bare it all, and then make sure to visit at least two others and leave them encouraging comments.

  1. I was just listening to this song driving back from Wal-Mart. While I adore Adele’s music, I’m not sure why this song resonates with me so much.

  2. LOVE this song. And I love how it makes sense in circumstances other than love relationships, too!

  3. Such an immensely powerful song. Also the folk, clapping soul of it just makes your heart beat faster. Love. <3

  4. hi Joy, recently found your website and I love the honesty of your writing.
    To my friends’ annoyance, I analyze the lyrics to all songs and I hadnt for this song though I am always humming to it when its playing. From now on I will think of this post when I listen to it :)
