Tore my heart apart when I least expected it... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/11/12
My boyfriend and I loved each other as much as we could. We had wild adventures of running into the woods and making love on the grass, him driving through parking lots with me on the roof of his car, and cross-state trips just to find a decent place to get something to eat. I couldn't bear to be without him and he could barely be apart from me.
I ended things because the relationship started to spiral downhill. Things started to get physical and the circumstances we were in forced us into stressful situations which we couldn't cope with individually.
To this day I still regret the decision to leave him. He never fought me on my decision, and just walked away with his head down.
I've been with the man I'm with now for four years, and I will never love him as much. It hurts to know that I'm in a stable situation with very little love on my part and that is better than ultimately being in passionate, free, combustible love.
My current situation | Reviewer: Oscar | 9/14/12
Im a student, young. I have a relationship with older woman..married woman.
We love each other so much..with all our hearts. After 4 months we will be together for three years.
But there is moments like today...hard moments.
When i am all alone, smoking and listening to this song...
Well I know I make you cry
And I know sometimes you wanna die
But do you really feel alive without me?
If so, be free
If not, leave him for me
And, she can`t do it....
Close to home. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/24/11
This song, as others have noted, resonates because it describes my own experience. I, too, had a affair. She did not choose me over her husband for the long term. That hurts, and this song accurately-and profoundly-describes the feelings, trials, hopes, and despairs of my own intransgression. Thank you, Damien Rice, for helping me through this time with your cathartic art.
My Life | Reviewer: CB | 9/6/11
Reading the other comments on this site has urged me to write my story. I love Damien Rice. He is a fantastic artist. I feel at home when I listen to his music.
I met the love of my life when I was in college. I was young and wild and selfish. He followed me across the Atlantic. All I wanted to do was party and have a good time. He thought I didn't love him because of this. I wanted freedom so we broke up. The timing was off. I always thought that we would go off and do our own things and then get back together again.
In my partying, I met a guy. He did not love me and I did not love him. We made a beautiful, accidental baby together.
My beautiful, accidental baby was too much. My true love moved on. Now I just sit and listen to songs like this and feel the truth and reality of the situation.
Damien Rice is legend.
This happened to me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/28/11
My boyfriend dedicated this to me one time we "had" to broke up because his ex told him she pregnant (yeah, we began to go out rigth after they broke up, he didn't cheated on me...).... I just cryeeeeeeeeed to death when I heared it, it was like hearing someon singin my feelings..
But the real problem was that, he didn't love her anymore, I mean that's why they broke up but he felt like he had de "duty" of taking care of his son...
Thinking that the person who you are nbdihni in love with is having a baby with another one.. is just the worst thing in the world... ):
but after all that, she found out she wasn't pregnant at all so they broke up (again) and I got my boyfriend back <3333 :)
but those were like the 2 or 3 most horrible months in my life...
we are the same | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/3/09
this song has special meaning to me as I see it does with the other reviewers here.
Its funny how though all our situations are different it's as if we feel the same pain. I often feel that I'm alone in what I'm feeling but seeing that others are sharing in my misery is kind of...comforting.
wow! | Reviewer: ender038 | 6/30/09
I have had this album for quite some time but never really sat down to listen. And now that I have I can't believe how closely this song resembles my situation. I met my ex when I was 22 years old, she was breathtaking, and I knew when I met her that it was the start of something. We dated for about a year and a half. But, she was entering her wild party years and I couldn't take it. So we split, about three months later we started dating again. And things were great. We made it one more year, and then it just fizzled out, I was uncomfortable around her feeling like she was going to cheat (having found out later she did). And then early last summer we ran into each other, one thing led to another and we ended up sleeping together. About two months later I got a call from her out of the blue saying she was pregnant. And the first thing I thought was this was the best thing that has ever happened to me. But she was pretty broken up about it, and decided to terminate the pregnancy. I reluctantly agreed and went through the process. I can still remember falling apart in the doctors office, it was terrible. Shortly after the abortion we tried to make it work, but it was too hard for me. I found out she was dating another man that was six years older then her and had a eight year old son. And now after a year all I do is think about her, I find myself losing it. I drink too much, and find myself making incredibly self destructive decisions. Well I found out just recently that she is three months pregnant, and to make matters worse I have a daughter due in august with someone I could care less about. This song is my life... and it breaks my heart.
My situation | Reviewer: peter | 6/2/09
This song sums up my life. i am going through a terible heartache. I was with my girfriend for 2 years and we had the most amazing passionate time, but i became scared of commitment being too young,22, so i split up with her and broke her heart, as months went on,she waited for me, i missed her throught the time so much and realised i had given up the most amazing thing that had ever happened to me, but she met someone else and will not give me another chance, i know she still loves me but she is scared of a broken heart again and does not wanto let this new guy down, the passion and love we have for each other is so powerful. i hate myself and my heart is truely broken, i am now going thorugh what she went through, i realised i messed up badly but i think i am too late, i cant sleep or eat and my heart is pounding, i just wanto give her the whole world and have a family with her, all i need is one chance. i dont know what to do, i listened to this song and now i am obsessed with it, it makes me so sad but i still cant help myself, i wanto put it on a cd and give it to her.i am preying she gives love another chance with me.x
delicate | Reviewer: elena | 12/7/08
I find it simply amazing... and incredibly delicate... sadness, loneliness, pain, hunger, fall, love, passion... talking about a movie of his, Pasolini appreciated it as being "atrocious and delicate"... and I thing Damien Rice is exactly like this... atrocious and delicate... are his "accidental babies"... collinding inside... and this song is not wonderful because of the story that it could say... it's wonderful because of its suggestions... the delicate gesture, the delicate rhythm of ideas and dreams and words and music...
So moving | Reviewer: Adam | 8/29/08
I have only just discovered Damien Rice, and thank God I did. He is amazing. As all my fellow reviewers have already said, this song in particular is a work of art, so honest, heart-wrenchingingly painful, and yet so beautiful.
Thank you Damien, for sharing this with us...
Beautiful | Reviewer: Sarah | 7/24/08
this song relates so heavily on my life.
my situation is a tad more complicated and ironic than the average cheating situation. I cheated on my boyfriend with his best friend (terrible but he was the guy that I truly loved although I did love both of them which was what made it so hard). I eventually broke up with my boyfriend for his best friend and I had never been happier however me and the ex-boyfriend kept trying to keep our leverl of closeness which we had established. So I stayed at his house and we slept together. The irony is now that I actually ended up cheating on both of them. I may be a terrible person or perhaps I just got too confused to make a choice as I really did love both of them so much.
Now as it turns out, I'm a week late for my period. If I am pregnant and my boyfriend finds out then I have most likely ruined the first chance of happiness that has come my way in a long time let alone having to have a child whilst taking a levels.
sorry this turned into a full blown confession...I meant to write about the song lol but thats the first time Ive ever written it down and it felt good. The song I can totally imagine my ex-boyfriend singing to me because so many of the things mentioned here reflected my feelings aswell as the things we used to do to each other.
And god yes. I realy do miss his smell :(
... | Reviewer: Brea | 5/7/08
So tragic, so painful and so touching...
Though I don't really connect it with a situation from my life, still it makes me cry every time when I hear it. Fantastic lyrics, so beautiful, and the way he sings it...
Breathless | Reviewer: G | 4/16/08
When I first heard this song, I was left completely breathless ... though being young and not having cheated in my relationships, I can still incredibly connect with this song since it's also a song about longing to have something. And I absolutely agree that this is the most moving song I have ever hears. It's so insanely honest and that's what gets me every time. True poetry! Beautiful :)
This song mirrors my life | Reviewer: A | 8/20/07
Everything in this song reminds me of the situation I'm in at the moment, but many of Damien Rice's songs seem to describe my love life. I'm not exactly having an affair, but i've been seeing a lot of my ex girlfriend recently, and I want her back. Whats more she's told me she has feelings for me to and is uncertain about what will happen. I've now broken up with my gf, and thus this song describes my situation.
Fantastic, and amazing lyrics | Reviewer: Richy | 7/20/07
I really like this song. To me it has a special meaning. I was seeing another girl behind my gf's back (yes I know - an awful thing to do). The girl I was seeing told me to listen to this song, as it made her cry every time she heard it. it reminded her of me and her, and what we had.
The lyrics are so accurate. And the song is great.
As for how its affected me? Well, lets just say I've now made the right choice, left my gf, and am with someone who truly drives me wild, and is dark enough to see my light. Amazing how a song can be so true, so moving, so accurate, yet so beautiful
