Music Monday – Hurt by Christina Aguilera

This week’s song is by Christina Aguilera: Hurt.

The first time I heard this song, I did not understand the dynamics she spoke of. Why did she care about if he was proud of her or not?

Why was she so broken once he was off the scene?

Perhaps the unspoken words that were never exchanged affected this relationship more than she knew until it was too late. One day I heard this song and decided to tell my dad how I felt. Expressing myself made a difference for me… even if it never changes the hurt he continues to inflict on me.

Enjoy the song:

Seems like it was yesterday when I saw your face
You told me how proud you were but I walked away
If only I knew what I know today

I would hold you in my arms
I would take the pain away
Thank you for all you’ve done
Forgive all your mistakes
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do
To hear your voice again
Sometimes I want to call you but I know you won’t be there

I’m sorry for blaming you for everything I just couldn’t do
And I’ve hurt myself by hurting you
Some days I feel broke inside but I won’t admit
Sometimes I just want to hide ’cause it’s you I miss
You know it’s so hard to say goodbye when it comes to this

Would you tell me I was wrong?
Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me?
Are you proud of who I am?
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do
To have just one more chance
To look into your eyes and see you looking back

I’m sorry for blaming you for everything I just couldn’t do
And I’ve hurt myself
If I had just one more day, I would tell you how much that
I’ve missed you since you’ve been away

Oh, it’s dangerous
It’s so out of line to try to turn back time

I’m sorry for blaming you for everything I just couldn’t do
And I’ve hurt myself

By hurting you

Forgive all who have offended you, not for them, but for yourself.  ~Harriet Nelson

    Reblogged this on Daddy Broke My Heart and commented:

    While I work on revisions to the DBMH project book, I’m reposting entries that are great for measuring mental/emotional progress through reactions the first time and then this time around. If this is your first time seeing these, I hope they challenge you in ways you haven’t considered before.

    With love,
