I wanna take you somewhere so you know I care
But it’s so cold and I don’t know where
I brought you daffodils in a pretty string
But they won’t flower like they did last spring

And I wanna kiss you, make you feel alright
I’m just so tired to share my nights
I wanna cry and I wanna love
But all my tears have been used up

And if somebody hurts you, I wanna fight
But my hands been broken, one too many times
So I’ll use my voice, I’ll be so fucking rude
Words they always win, but I know I’ll lose

And I’d sing a song, that’d be just ours
But I sang ’em all to another heart
And I wanna cry I wanna learn to love
But all my tears have been used up

Lyrics of Tom Odell’s Another Love couldn’t have said it better. Loving someone after having your entire self broken and shattered to pieces, is the hardest thing of all. You may gather up the strength and collect the broken pieces together, but there’s always going to be a missing piece lost somewhere forever. And, although you want to give them your everything, all of you isn’t there anymore….plus your heart is held together mostly with glue and pins. In my case I’ve used staples as well…Oh boy!

I love this song and I love Tom Odell. Sometimes songs that other people write, sound like they come right from your own heart. It shows that others too have lived through what we have – it isn’t comforting to know, but it helps you to remember that life and love take similar courses.

When you love someone with your whole heart, you don’t leave much room for another to walk in and take that place. When your heart breaks, it is not the loving again that is difficult, but reconstructing the broken heart, so you can give it all to another. I never love with half-measures; I love with everything that I am, because that’s how I want someone to love me too. But, lately I have come to see that, the events in my past have really weakened my ‘gathering up the pieces’ part. I used up all my tears, all my wishes, all my hope, all my strength, all my “i love you”s and all my dreams, on another love. I just wish that I could be whole again to love again completely, the way I know I can and I should.
