Jann Arden Insensitive Lyrics

Last updated: 08/14/2013 06:22:02 AM

How do you cool your lips
After a summer’s kiss
How do you rid the sweat
After the body bliss
How do you turn your eyes
From the romantic glare
How do you block the sound
Of a voice you’d know anywhere

Oh, I really should have known
By the time you drove me home
By the vagueness in your eyes
Your casual good-byes
By the chill in your embrace
The expression on your face
That told me
Maybe You might have some advice to give
On how to be

How do you numb your skin
After the warmest touch
How do you slow your blood
After the body rush
How do you free your soul
After you’ve found a friend
How do you teach your heart
It’s a crime to fall in love again

Oh, you probably won’t remember me
It’s probably ancient history
I’m one of the chosen few
Who went ahead and fell for you
I’m out of hope, I’m out of touch
I fell too fast, I feel too much
I thought that you might have
Some advice to give on how to be
I really should have known
By the time you drove me home
By the vagueness in your eyes
Your casual good-byes
By the chill in your embrace
The expression on your face
That told me
Maybe You might have some advice to give
On how to be

the guy this song is about | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/14/13

My friend just met this guy. He found out about this song 5 years after it was written - unexpectedly bumped into the writer, apologized for his behavior and she thanked him for the wonderful song. He also said he has never actually listened to the song.

senti mode | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/6/13

i like this song because woman are so sensitive so i wonder in how to be so in sensitive like this song tells in many different ways how to have not a perfect match but a person who can stand beside you and never let you get down even if the world stumbles down for you even if you are crazy can accept who the whole package instead.

Song Review | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/20/13

For me, this song is about a girl who is unable to forget about a guy who coldly ends their relationship. The listener is made to relive the relationship through the lyrics which appeal to the senses. Basically, the relationship is still all too real to the singer. I think the singer's being ironic when she says at the end of the chorus that she hopes that 'you' (the ex), might have some 'advice on how to be insensitive'.

emotional rollercoaster ride | Reviewer: Emotional disconnect | 11/5/12

After 7 years of marraige I filed for divorce, at the time it was the hardest thing I had ever done. He promised me he would change, so yes I took him back and thru the papers out the window. Just after 3 months of reuniting, things were back to how they were, long nights at the office, early morning rises. Thank God for giving me the courage to get off the insensitive ride!

You being sensitive about the other's Insensitiveness means his/her love is gone | Reviewer: Long Island Ice Tea | 10/11/12

I only got to hear the song a couple of days agao when I was adjusting all the songs i saved in Itunes. And just the beginning part made me flash back to the last days with my ex-lover. I had the same feeling and my instinct told me there was someone else inbetween. But my best girlfriend said i was thinking too much given the guy's already in a complicated situation, it's impossible for him to have a third woman. But I still broke up with him after the taste of love changed and almost 2 years later I got to learned the truth, which was what exactly my heart told me. My lesson is there're always signs before the other one stopped loving you. If you keep sensitive all the time, your relationship might still have a chance to last. But if you became sensitive at the final stage, it's too late to do anything with a man or woman who doesn't love you any more. Then it's time for you to leave and go without turning back. Otherwise, you'll stay being the victim for the rest of your life...Remember, there's always a reason why the relationship doesn't work out as we wished!

Beautiful song but we shouldn't dwell ourselves into it and keep punishing us with the past mistake!

Now I'm insenstive! | Reviewer: Rudy | 7/19/12

with my wife for 10 years, gorgeous woman but a complete narcisist to the extreme... destroyed all of my female relationships - all good friends - I was not allowed to go out with friends without her - she'd followed me if I tried. Could not go skiing or hiking by myself - who are you seeing? built a great life for her - $500K home, condo overlooking the lake, great sex life, great friends and family, I did everything around the house - bills, cleaned, maintenance, repairs, house was immaculate and all she had to do was work... went to the gym and worked out 4 days a week and in great shape... got laid off from my high tech job and she left the next month... I thought I was a model husband... she never cried, showed any emotion, refused counseling, just coldly left, forced us into mediation, never looked back... cruel, stunning, horrible, I have no heart left, just scar tissue - my new girlfriend tells me she loves me and I just stare at her with a blank look on my face - now I'm INSENSTIVE!

his unfair! | Reviewer: rish | 2/9/12

Hi Jake, how's your day? Just read your message.. i'm busy this past few days, so i wasn't able to come online everynight..

Yah, it really hurts me a lot when i decided to give up him..our relationship will not work anymore if he himself doesn't feel the same way before; if he is so insensitive to me unlike before; he is not already sweet, caring, loving just like before, he can't even call me Babe anymore.. I am not that kind of person having the feeling of numb, that's why i noticed all those things..

The last time we chat, he told me everything.. it really hurts, i don't know what to say. i cried and cried while chatting to him.. my hands are shaking 'cause of nervousness.. he is so unfair.. his ex girlfriend wanted to win him back.. after her ex-gf said that to him, he is already confused with his feelings for me.. :-(
he can't say his decision to me frankly, but i feel that he wants to go back to his ex-gf.. it really hurts.. i thought he loves me so much, just like the way he said to me before.. just as easy as that, he made his final decision.. i don't know what to do, though it hurts, i have to let him go, for me to ease the pain.. its a long process to recover from breakup.. its hard to trust again.. so i do hope, when someone will come into my life, im praying that he's the one.. but on the other side, i do not know, if that someone will come.. that's the story of my life when it comes to love.. so my status now is zero.. (smiling/laughing)

What is love? | Reviewer: elgnurt | 12/16/11

Every now and then when I am alone, I listen to this song and I remember about how insensitive my ex to me. It hurts me knowing that she did not love me as much as I loved her. It is so hard to remove her image from my mind so I could move on with new people who come to my life. I hate her yet I am happy for her when she moved on with someone else who could give her things that I could not. Both of us are cursed by the fate of life.

Love it! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/21/11

I always feel neglected by the person whom I love so much. Someone close to me said that I should not be that sweet, caring, loving and understanding girlfriend because my bf is taking advantage of me. But what should I do, its the real me. I feel that Im only the one loving and he doesn't feel the same. Or its just that its how he show his love? Why most of the guys are so insensitive with our feelings? Right know Im avoiding him just to make him feel neglected just what he did to me. But Im the one who's hurting. You wont any reaction from him. As if its Ok to him. Can you help me guys? thanks.

hurt by the past | Reviewer: junie | 9/16/11

this song reminded me of the guy, we loved each other but we never had the chance to be together, it was me who's in a relationship if its him who's free or its always the other way around for the two of us.. We respect each others companion or I'd rather say that its he who cant fight for us... it hurts but i could say that he never loved me as much as I loved her.. and now, im married..... I know its not right to comment anymore but still the pain is here. Im sorry

My past. | Reviewer: Madison | 6/17/11

This song really reminds me of my ex. I hate him so much that I love him. He cheated on me with 5 different girls. Even got one pregnant. Then left me, and engaged the pregnant one. She lost the baby, and they broke up. Yeah, I took him back. Why? Because I loved him. I wanted us to work out. I thought he was the one. After we got back together, it lasted about 2 months. I left him. I couldn`t do it, knowing that he had done that to me. I knew I could do better, but I still wanted him.

``How do you teach your heart
It’s a crime to fall in love again``

I hear from him once and a while, and he tells me he's inlove. He tells her everything he use to tell me. I feel so replaced. But time will heal my broken heart.

insensitivity is stupidity | Reviewer: aaoi | 4/19/11

an insensitivity of a person, passes all the pain to the other person.

my interpretation of the song is simply about a girl who was used by the guy she loved. and then dumped after all the things that happened between them. it's heartbreaking how the guy was able to forget everything so fast like nothing happened.

i've been in this situation. the song fits me well. but yeah, you'll move on. it seems like eternity everyday it hurts, but prayers really help. Faith in God is what we all needed, to be able to pass at all the lowest points of our life :)
