lovefool

there's a song i used to love (the cardigans' lovefool) which goes:

love me, love me
say that you love me
fool me, fool me
go on now fool me-

uh, wait a second. if i want someone to love me, it's not to fool me, it's to love me. i don't want anyone acting as if they do, telling me they do if they don't, or anything of the sort. why would i? why would i want to live a lie like that? or devalue my self worth? como que jeva, chequeate.

i would want the real thing- wouldn't settle for imitations. ni que yo estuviera super profunda e inmensamente enamorada de otro. vivir una mentira es peor. yo sentiria asco.

a mi dejenme con mi compartir real, con mi amor por mi misma, aun en relacion o soltera. y de otro amarme a mi y yo amar a otro, que tambien sea de verdad. y ese coro. y si no va a ser de verdad, pues que ni mire para este lado ni yo para el suyo.

lo primero es que aunque amar y ser amado es muy cul y bonito, etc. realmente no necesitamos a otro ser humano para ser completos. de ser asi, fuesemos una mitad de persona. y ese no es el caso, verdad? nada de eso de medias naranjas. dos naranjas completas.

aun asi, la cancion me encanta. el ritmo, la inocencia, es linda. solo estoy en desacuerdo con ese mensaje. para mi, say that you love me if you really love me, and that'll be great. don't say that you love me if you don't really love me, and that'll also be great.

I know what you are saying, but I believe fully and blindly in the concept of soulmate. It hasn't gotten me very far, but still...

quizas por eso es que se llama love fool. o se pudo haber llamado "disfunctional love" o "screwed up infatuation". No one should ever think being fooled is part of being in love.

hahahaha, that's funny, gabs, but entirely true...

ana, claro que there's someone there for everyone who's meant to live the couple life, pero se supone que tu soulmate is gonna love you de verdad. si es un fake no creo que sea tu soulmate, hehe. or i wouldn't wish it to be.

I love that song! Never analyzed the lyrics before though, they are pretty contradictory.
