It’s clear I favor Melanie Amaro to win the USA X Factor competition, but this version of this song did something to me. I felt like it was me singing it. That this is how the song was supposed to sound and I LOVED Roxette’s version; it was one of my favorite songs. But this girl did something to this song, made it a heart song, one that expresses only the deepest and most honest emotions. I really wish she would record the whole song. I would buy it.
…And I’m thinking of him. I’m thinking of how I will never feel good enough because of how beautiful and successful and smart he is. That all he’s achieved in his life had been in my reach to achieve in mine had I not had these fatal flaws that weigh on me with the harsh reality of failure. How I will love him and keep him in my heart. And never forget him. But never call him. Because he’s too good for me.
But this song sings of how I feel under my covers. When I’m cuddling my pillow and cocooned in my blanket. When I nuzzle my dog. This is what I’m taking comfort from; this longing. For missing him and wishing I were all he deserves.
“Make believing we’re together
That I’m sheltered by your heart”
|I looked for images that depicted unrequited love. This one summed it up.|
