Music Love.

I have been non-stop listening to Kris Allen’s new CD. The season Kris won was the first season I ever got into American Idol.. it was right after the break up and I just loved Kris Allen. And Anthony loved it, so we got really into it.

Luckily for me, I LOVE the CD. Just love it. And there is one song I thought would be an interesting blog topic, mostly because it perfectly expressed the way it was the last few months of living with Ryan. Go ahead… take a listen, read the lyrics, and we’ll discuss after.

The song is called “The Truth”


Lying next to you
Wishing I could disappear
Let you fall asleep
And vanish out into thin air

It’s the elephant in the room
And we pretend that we don’t see it
It’s the avalanche that looms above our heads
And we don’t believe it

Trying to be perfect
Trying not to let you down
Honesty is honestly
The hardest thing for me right now
While the floors underneath our feet
Are crumbling, the walls we built together tumbling
I still stand here holding up the roof
Cause it’s easier than telling the truth

I still keep your photographs
I remember how we used to laugh
I can keep on losing sleep
If you’re okay with being torn in half

It’s the elephant in the room
And we pretend that we don’t see it
It’s the avalanche that looms above our heads
And we don’t believe it

Trying to be perfect
Trying not to let you down
Honesty is honestly
The hardest thing for me right now
While the floors underneath our feet
Are crumbling, the walls we built together tumbling
I still stand here holding up the roof
Cause it’s easier than telling the truth

Stop ignoring that our hearts are mourning
And let the rain come in
Stop pretending that it’s not ending
And let the end begin, oh yeah…

Trying to be perfect
Trying not to let you down
Honesty is honestly
The hardest thing for me right now, yeah
While the floors underneath our feet
Are crumbling, the walls we built together tumbling
I still stand here holding up the roof
Cause it’s easier than telling the truth
It’s easier than telling the truth

I think I love this song so much because of the perfect representation of being the one in the relationship that is trying to make it work, trying to be perfect… and ignoring the fact that everything is NOT ok. The image of holding up a roof, while the walls and floors tumble down… that’s amazing. And I think most people have relationships like this.

What do you all think?

  1. Huh. It kind of makes me wonder how many people feel like this and yet don't do anything about it? I can aspects of this in my last relationship as well which is rather interesting!
