Not Round Every Corner

As a companion post to the Big Breakup Story, I offer these lyrics from OK Go‘s song Oh, Lately It’s So Quiet.

Oh, lately it’s so quiet
In this place
You’re not round every corner
Oh, lately it’s so quiet
In this place
So darling if you’re not here haunting me
I’m wondering

Whose house are you haunting tonight?
Whose sheets you twist
Whose face you kiss
Whose house are you haunting tonight?

I don’ think much about you
Anymore
You’re not on every whisper, oh
I don’t think much about you
But if you’re not lurking behind every curtain
I’m wondering…

Whose house are you haunting tonight?
Whose name you hiss
Whose clenching fists
Whose house are you haunting tonight?

Now, whose house are you haunting tonight?
Who can’t resist
Whose crying
Whose house are you haunting tonight?
Whose name you hiss
Whose sheets you twist
Whose house,
Are you haunting tonight?

It’s natural to go through a stage of wondering what a former lover is up to, but why torture yourself?  It’s much healthier to move on and let them wonder what you are getting up to (and with whom) …

One Response to “Not Round Every Corner”

  1. Sorry about your breakup, Amanda, but I wanted to compliment you on your genuine reaction to Susan Boyle on Simon Cowell’s program, “Britain’s Got Talent.” I’m assuming that was genuine. It’s not often that a person who’s as carefully packaged as you are has the self confidence to appreciate the truly unusual. Your reaction seemed absolutely heart-felt, and I am impressed. Nice going. I mean that.

    Sincerely,
