Love this song and video – Thanks PJ!

January 7, 2011

I really love Annie’s voice and her songs. Her lyrics always evoke something in me, touch some primal place in me, like she sees inside there.  It doesn’t hurt that she sings in my range, so I find her songs satisfying to sing (although, my versions are definitely puny and paltry in comparison!)

Besides, the video for this song, evocative of Dangerous Liaisons, one of my favorite movies of all time, includes the sexy John Malcovich AND Hugh Laurie.  So…here’s my offering to the Friday entertainment Gods – Enjoy!

You were the sweetest thing that I ever knew
But I don’t care for sugar honey if I can’t have you
Since you abandoned me
My whole life has crashed
Won’t you pick the pieces up
‘Cause it feels just like I’m walking on broken glass

Walking on walking on broken glass

The sun’s still shining in the big blue sky
But it don’t mean nothing to me
Oh let the rain come down
Let the wind blow through me
I’m living in an empty room
With all the windows smashed
And I’ve got so little left to lose
That it feels just like I’m walking on broken glass

Walking on walking on broken glass

And If you’re trying to cut me down
You know that I might bleed
‘Cause if you’re trying to cut me down
I know that you’ll succeed
And if you want to hurt me
There’s nothing left to fear
‘Cause if you want to hurt me
You’re doing really well my dear

Now everyone of us was made to suffer
Everyone of us was made to weep
But we’ve been hurting one another
And now the pain has cut too deep…
So take me from the wreckage
Save me from the blast
Lift me up and take me back
Don’t let me keep on walking…
I can’t keep on walking
I can’t keep on walking on broken glass

Walking on walking on broken glass

    Music has a mystic manner of being able to take you
    instantly back to a specific place and time in your past I will
    definitely vote them, for one reason…. THEY’RE AWESOME

    I love this song, thanks. Some miserable-me songs irritate me, but others I enjoy. Don’t hear this one often enough. thanks again.
