She comes back to tell me she’s gone As if I didn’t know that As if I didn’t know my own bed As if I’d never noticed The way she brushed her hair from her forehead
And she said, “losing love Is like a window in your heart Everybody sees you’re blown apart Everybody sees the wind blow”
Taken from the song Graceland from the album of the same name (1986). Though the song charted badly, it’s gorgeous sound and heartfelt lyrics have always been popular and the album is still considered to be one of the greatest ever.
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again? Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?
Taken from the song Firework by Californian songstress Katy Perry, from her third studio album Teenage Dream (2010). Along with one of her later songs Roar, this US chart-topper is considered one of her most empowering songs.
