It's a heartache



Bonnie Tyler is one of my favourite singers. Last night I was just listening to her, when her famous song “It’s a Heartache” struck me with lightning. Not for any other reason but each word of the song looked as if a person betrayed by his friends, colleagues, relatives or even “politicians” is crying and lamenting. I am writing down the lyrics and see for yourself.

It's a heartache, nothing but a heartache
Hits you when it's too late, hits you when you're down
It's a fools' game, nothing but a fool's game
Standing in the cold rain, feeling like a clown

It's a heartache, nothing but a heartache
Love him 'till your arms break, then he'll let you down
It ain't right with love to share
When you find he doesn't care for you
It ain't wise to need someone as much as I depended on you

Oh, it's heartache, nothing but a heartache
Hits you when it's too late, hits you when you're down
It's a fool's game, nothing but a fool's game
Standing in the cold rain, feeling like a clown


All of us have heartache these days when we view our political environment. Those who voted now repent for having so as now its too late, as we have been hit and hit again when we are now lying s down fainted of crying and protesting for against the price hike, non availability of sugar and flour and many other things. We played a fool’s game and now we stand in the cold 9as there no rains, so I skip the mention of the rain) and surely we do look like clowns (ain’t we?).

We loved and revered our candidates and enchanted slogans for them with our full blast till our throats got soar and arms got weary of clapping. But they let us down. And they don’t care for us anymore. So was it wise to have needed them? No it wasn’t and here we stand in the cold, feeling like clowns.

Siting before computer at this hour (see the time stamp of this comment), I too am feeling like a clown, for different reasons though.

I am a man of written words. I made an earlier comment after reading the song. But I was tipped to watch the video. Seeing Bonnie Tyler in action, I sort of forgot about words. Bonnie Tyler mesmerizes the audiences. No?

Thanks Jalal HB for sharing this here.
