Codependency on a stick! Song lyrics seep in and mess with our thinking, just as easily as parent’s words. I’m working on a chapter and want to mention some of the most popular codependent song lyrics. You know, those that say that someone else or something else will make someone happy or crush them, that you can’t live without someone or need them.
I’m thinking of:
“I Can’t Live (If Living Is Without You) by Pete Ham and Tom Evans, sung by Mariah Carey, Badfinger, Harry Nilsson, Air Supply and many others:
America’s “I Need You” …like a flower needs the rain.
Got any other ideas for me?
