Song Lyric Sunday 9/16/18 – Watch Me Bleed

“Glass” – a rather unorthodox theme for our weekly Song Lyric Sunday challenge. Of course, my default choice would have been the song I chose for the “goodbye/farewell” theme, namely “The Parting Glass” so I decided to get a little metaphorical.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never bled quite as much as I have when I cut myself on a shard of broken glass. Lately it seems my soul has been bleeding like a cut from a shard of broken glass; I just can’t catch a break. Of course, it also doesn’t help that I’m still seeping blood and excess ink from two fresh tattoos that I got yesterday so my thoughts were almost directed toward bleeding.

So with my soul being cut my a shard of metaphorical glass and bleeding, I’m choosing this song. Here then is “Watch Me Bleed” – a 1983 song off of the album The Hurting, the breakout album by a certain duo hailing from Bath, England that you should come to expect to find here and written by some dude whose initials are RO.

Yeah, them again. Sorry, I know you must be tired of them by now.


Heaven comes to he who waits
But I know I’m getting nowhere
And all the deeds of yesterday
Have really helped to pave my way
Though there’s no one near me now
How come everyone can touch me
You see the torture on my brow
Relates to neither here nor now

Watch me bleed, bleed forever
Watch me bleed, bleed forever
Although my face is straight, it lies
My body feels the pain and cries

Here the table is not bare
I am full but feeling empty
For all the warmth it feels so cold
For one so young I feel so old

Watch me bleed, bleed forever
Watch me bleed, bleed forever
It’s not allowed to be unkind
But still the hate lives in my mind

I’ll make no noise, I’ll hide my pain
I’ll close my eyes, I won’t complain
I’ll lie right back and take the blame
And try to tell myself I’m living
And when it’s all been said or done
Where do I go? Where do I run?
What’s left of me or anyone
When we’ve denied the hurting?

And when it’s all been said or done
Where do I go? Where do I run?
What’s left of me or anyone
When we’ve denied the hurting?

Watch me bleed, bleed forever
Watch me bleed, bleed forever
And all the deeds of yesterday
Have really helped to pave my way

Watch me bleed, bleed forever
Watch me bleed, bleed forever
And all the deeds of yesterday
Have really helped to pave my way

  1. Nice choice! I was never a Tears for Fears fan, but I’ve enjoyed all their songs that you’ve posted. My choice this week was “The Parting Glass” sung by George Donaldson. I’ll have to find your goodbye/farewell post to see which one you picked!

  2. I honestly can’t think of glass without thinking of blood either. It stems from a very dark time in my past. This song was very poignant for me. I loved the lyrics. Thank you so much for sharing. I hope things start to look up. ❤
