The Soundtrack of My Life

the music that keeps me going…

Just tell me and I’ll be gone…

on May 5, 2010

Another classic by Atlantic Starr today! I blogged about another of their hits awhile back but THIS ONE HERE is my favorite. I think I should just listen to older music for a period. that music seems to bring a bit more inspiration out of me. It has a lot to do with the songwriting and the awesome voices! Whew!  Anyway today’s song is below…

Its a fragile situation
It could fall apart at any time
And none would be the wiser
Cept you and I

It seems that we stopped talking
like we’re afraid to disagree
And after we’ve been through
Can we still be that naive

If your heart isn’t in it,
why cant you tell me so
If my heart wasn’t in it,
I’d have gone long ago
If your heart isn’t in it
why keep me hanging on
Just tell me and I’ll be gone
from your life…

You treat me like a stranger
as if I wasn’t there…

Oh baby , I waited for a miracle
To make you show that you care…

this song is the epitome of “going thru the motions”

ever been with someone just because? like you are afraid to let go…but you don’t really want to stay either. you are overcome with indifference? yea. the familiar can suck you in like a whirlpool…

I’ve always loved this song, but I have a thing for sad ass songs for some reason. and I’m not sad at all…I’m great but there is something powerful about this song to me. wanted to share.

If your heart…
Ooh, can’t you tell me so
I have to know
If your heart isn’t it
Why keep me hanging on
Just tell me and I’ll be gone
Don’t keep me hanging on
for dear life

the last line says it all. Its hard but its better to make a clean break. its not fair to keep folks hanging on…

    Great post, Reece. I’m with you as far as liking sad songs & not being sad yourself. I always for listening to older music. My favorite Atlantic Starr song is “Send For Me” but “If Your Heart Isn’t In It” is in my top 5.

  5. I love the oldies/classics too! Ugh! I think I’m getting old. LOL. But this song is so easy to love because it’s pure, raw emotion…
