Duet On The Radio

I was sitting in the car the other night, thinking about my life, when this song comes on that I had forgotten about. The song is by Seether with Amy Lee from Evanescence, and is called "Broken". The lyrics are awesome, but the song is even better.

It's almost like an epiphany when a song somehow touches a part of you in an ineffable way. I'm not sure the lyrics hold up to what I feel on paper, but in the song, with the melody and the way it feels, well, that's a different story.

I'm not sure how to express it, but I just felt like it was important to acknowledge somehow. It reminds me of the old style duets, only modernized. Simple, effective, driven, and most important, resplendent.


Broken by Seether ft. Amy Lee


Guy:
I wanted you to know I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph and I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

Both:
'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

Guy:
You've gone away, you don't feel me, anymore

Girl:
The worst is over now and we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There's so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

Both:
[x2]
'Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough
'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

You've gone away
You don't feel me here anymore
