another one of those breakup songs..

why do some people like to bring up the past? why reopen healed wounds? why stab where it hurts? why? it took me a long time to get over this and yet i have to hear this again. i received a message earlier in the day.

[15:46] Unfaithful Ex: Umm.. U’r probably working, so I’ll make it quick.. I just wanted to apologise for not being faithful to you.. In fact i wasn’t even faithful to my first GF.. Why apologise now?.. Well, when you wake up with tears in your eyes, u tend to feel a bit sentimental and all. And the word “faithful” was stuck in my head and i suddenly hated myself for not emulating the back back then.. Bye, time for work
[15:46] Meebo Message: Unfaithful Ex is offline

is this closure to you? does it make you feel better that you apologised? i knew you were unfaithful and yet you denied it many a time then, even after our breakup. and now, 4 years later, you decide to spring back into my life and apologise? sigh…

i love this song.. its one of those breakup songs that you keep playing over and over again..

Jann Arden – Insensitive
How do you cool your lips after a summer’s kiss?
How do you rid the sweat after the body bliss?
How do you turn your eyes from the romantic glare?
How do you block the sound of a voice you’d know anywhere?

Oh I really should have known by the time you drove me home,
By the vagueness in your eyes, your casual good-byes.
By the chill in your embrace and the expression on your face,
That told me you might have some advice to give …
On how to be…

How do you numb your skin after the warmest touch?
How do you slow your blood after the body rush?
How do you free your soul after you’ve found a friend?
How do you teach your heart it’s a crime to fall in love again?

Oh you probably won’t remember me, it’s probably ancient history,
I’m one of the chosen few who went ahead and fell for you.
I’m out of vogue, I’m out of touch, I fell too fast, I feel too much.
I thought that you might have some advice to give …
On how to be …


  1. breakups are never easy. its difficult to forget someone whom you’ve loved so much. however, as the saying goes: time heals all wounds.

    Q: What herb cures all ailments?

    A: By the black raven’s crime,
    and by this rhyme,
    the answer would be thyme (coz it sounds like ‘time’).


  2. Pfft. Such men are just self-centred. Even when they are apologetic they won’t consider how others would feel by their outbursts. Pfft. Never change one.


  3. My ex gave me a long distance call to tell me he missed me, then proceeded to ask me how to sian this char bor in his class. So how? Like that lor. the decision to leave is re-instated again and again. in the end, you know it was absolutely imperative to leave last time. So heng ah.


  4. i’ve been listening to broken vow- lara fabian instead…
    i know jann arden’s insensitive but dont have the song…

    i think when we all go sappy and listen to shite like that.. it somehow…. makes it worse. hah*
