Lyrics of the Week – Week 23


Dedicated to the show How I Met Your Mother. I first heard a Bloc Party song on the show.

“Like Eating Glass” by Bloc Party

It’s so cold in this house
Open mouth swallowing us
The children staying home from school
Will not stop crying

And I know that you’re busy too
I know that you care
You got your finger on the pulse
You got your eyes everywhere
And it hurts all the time when you don’t return my calls
And you haven’t got the time to remember how it was
It’s so cold in this house
It’s so cold in this house

I can’t eat, I can’t sleep
I can’t sleep, I can’t dream
An aversion to light
Got a fear of the ocean

Like drinking poison, like eating glass (4x)

It’s so cold in this house (4x)

Like drinking poison, like eating glass (4x)

Come and show me how it was

We’ve got crosses on our eyes
Been walking into the walls again
We’ve got crosses on our eyes
Been walking into the furniture
We’ve got crosses on our eyes
For richer, for poorer, for better, for worse
We’ve got crosses on our eyes
We’ve been walking into the furniture

I never looked up the lyrics of this song; I only sang the chorus and enjoyed the other elements. Apparently it’s about a deteriorating relationship. I don’t intend to feature heart-wrenching lyrics, but a lot of my favorite songs, as well as famous songs, include relationship content. Whether I subconsciously think about love is unknown. However, this happening is mere coincidence.

Losing somebody is like eating glass. It makes one feel cold. There are always signs that indicate a relationship is near its end. Those who refuse to recognize the signs are in denial. Most people suffer from denial. I have and still do. It’s a long process to forget what once was.
