Unhealthy Song Lyrics: Codependent, Abusive, Jealous, Needy

Codependent, jealous, violent, damaged, needy, suicidal, no boundaries …oh the messages we sing about love! Skim through the zinger lines below or listen to the Youtube playlist: Unhealthy Relationship Lyrics,  (then call your therapist):

How Am I Supposed to Live Without You – Michael Bolton

How am I supposed to live without you. How am I supposed to carry on, when all that I’ve been livin’ for is gone.

Without You – Air Supply

I can’t live, if living is without you.

Because You Loved Me – Celine Dion

I’m everything I am, because you loved me!

Run for Your Life – The Beatles

Well, I’d rather see you dead little girl than to be with another man. Better run for your life if you can little girl. Catch you with another man, that’s the end.

All of Me – Frank Sinatra

Why not take all of me? I’m no good without you! Take my arms, I’ll never use them. I’m just a mess without you. You took the best. Why not take the rest?

If You Leave Me Now – Chicago

If you leave me now, you’ll take away the biggest part of me. No baby please don’t go. If you leave me now, you’ll take away the very heart of me.

(Words & Music by Peter Cetera)

Love Hurts – Nazareth

Love hurts. Love scars. Love wounds and mars.

Bend Me, Shape Me – American Breed

Bend me, shape me, anyway you want me. As long as you love me, it’s all right. (Similar idea as Bread – Anyway You Want Me)

  2. You make a very valid point here. I love music, but listen mostly to instrumental or inspirational, uplifting music. There was a time in my life that I immersed myself in the take-me-back-into-the-past music and wallowing in unhealthy emotions. Music can evoke many feelings within us. We need to choose carefully what plays in the background of our minds. Thanks for sharing this.

    • I think so too! I’ve studied sound therapy a bit. I think our sound diet is like our food diet. A little junk is okay, but the foundation should be nutritious, nurturing.

      And a bit of wisdom in our pop music wouldn’t be the worst thing, would it! It’s encouraging to hear some of the Jason Mraz and others who have some great messages and great music.

      Thanks for your comment!

  5. “Drain You” by Nirvana:
    I don’t care what you think
    Unless it is about me
    It is now my duty to completely drain you
    A travel through a tube
    And end up in your infection

    “Heart-shaped Box” by Nirvana:
    She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak
    I’ve been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
    I’ve been drawn into your magnet tar-pit trap
    I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black
