This is an excellent song (by Joan Armatrading) from an excellent movie!

Have you seen the movie "10 things I hate about you"?



How could anyone find 10 things to hate about you, Heath Ledger? I couldn't find one bad thing.



It's difficult to describe the overall feeling of the song but if you've been through a similar situation like this, you'll know the exact feeling.

I have a similar story, really. I can "feel" every word of this song that I have heard hundreds of times.

Ah, I'm feeling contrite.


I'm not the sort of person who falls in and quickly out of love
But to you, I give my affection right from the start
I have a lover who loves me - how could I break such a heart?
Yet still you get my attention

Why do you come here, when you know I've got troubles enough?
Why do you call me, when you know I can't answer the phone?
And make me lie when I don't want to
And make someone else some kind of an unknowing fool?
You make me stay when I should not
Are you so strong or is all the weakness in me?
Why do you come here, and pretend to be just passing by?
When I need to see you
And I need to hold you tightly

Feeling guilty, worried, waking from tormented sleep
This old love has me bound but the new love cuts deep
If I choose now, I'll lose out, one of you has to fall
And I need you, and you

Why do you come here, when you know I've got troubles enough?
Why do you call me, when you know I can't answer the phone?
And make me lie when I don't want to
And make someone else some kind of an unknowing fool?
You make me stay when I should not
Are you so strong or is all the weakness in me?
Why do you come here, and pretend to be just passing by?
When I need to see you
And I need to hold you tightly...

Heath Ledger was such a waste... :'( it's too bad he passed away so suddenly, he had so much more to give... :'( I loved him in A Knight's Tale and of course in this one...

Ane said... @ 25/10/10 11:43 PM

Ooh, that kind of situation sounds complicated, but can be kinda fun, eh? LOL :-D My love life has been complicated, but not in that way.. :) Good thing too, cause I don't think I can handle that kind of drama in my life.. :-P

Jennifer is Always Sick said... @ 27/10/10 3:24 AM

That song was amazing, and that movie was too. It came out my senior year of high school, when I met my husband. Oh, and now I'm all mushy inside!

RIP Heath Ledger. You were my favorite actor and you are still sorely missed. :(
