goodbye my lover


i was dating a boy one time and then we broke up (i'm starting to wonder if there are other options that actually replace breaking up??) only he didn't want to break up and he wasn't afraid to let me know that. it's flattering to feel wanted even after you stomp on somebody's heart, but it's not flattering to be told that every time he hears the song "goodbye my lover" by james blunt, he thinks of me. aside from the lyrics being at best like an amateur stand-up comedy skit (i'd be the father of your child?? wow...) james blunt is so whiny! if anybody ever expressed their love for me in that tone, i would either a) laugh without meaning to or b) start calling them randy parker.

this love confession happened awhile ago, but my sister informed me that somebody she knew started crying just the other day when this song came on the radio because it reminded her of her old boyfriend...i'm really concerned with how we're starting to define post-relationships

this is way way worse than being told "fish heads" by dr. dimento is the post break up song.

colls you know all the right post break up songs. remember how you knew that imogene heap song would be just the thing to make me feel better after i broke up with greg?

ooh - colls, that is pretty good..by does dr. dimento look as good as james blunt with a curly little mustache?

you know what, no he doesn't. i don't even look as good as brother blunt with a stache. and yes nat, i have a talent with songs. to hear more post break up songs press 1 or simply say yes.
