This Week’s Blog by Eric J. Broder
In a recent “water-cooler” office conversation, my office was discussing a number of songs that have been written about divorce. After an entertaining discussion, and in no particular order, here are a few of the more well-known songs and key lyrics, which certainly warrant a listen if you are going through the process. Warning: if you watch some of these videos on YouTube, make sure you have tissues nearby.
So let’s leave it alone, ‘cause we can’t see eye to eye
There ain’t no good guys, there ain’t no bad guys
There’s only you and me and we just disagree
I’ve got the tough education
Divorce separation blues
And he thinks C-U-S-T-O-D-Y spells fun or play
Can’t seem to fight these feelings
Caught in the middle of this
My wounds are not healing
Stuck in between my parents
Broken home! Broken home!
Their anger hurts my ears
Been running strong for seven years
Rather than fix the problems
They never solve them
It makes no sense at all
I see them everyday
We get along, so why can’t they
The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
A day might come and you’ll realize that if you could see through my eyes
There was no other way to work it out
And a part of you might hate me
But son please don’t mistake me for a man that didn’t care at all
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
Who’s right, who’s wrong
Who really cares?
The fault, the blame, the pain’s still there
I’m here alone inside of this broken home, this broken home.
Let’s go see dad
Same time in the same spot
Corner of the same old parking lot
Half the hugs and kisses there are always sad
We trade a couple words and looks
And kids again
Every other weekend
Well one says white and the other one black
It’s the same old story…Doesn’t anybody stay together anymore?
