i  glorified you
thought it was love
maybe so…
maybe so…

you basked in my devotion
pretended to love me
addicted to the adoration
and the power it gave you

i  worshiped you
until the day
you laughed at my love
thinking it wouldn’t matter

in that moment
i  lost my religion
knew you were no good
…..no god

i  revered  you
learned it wasn’t really love
even so…
even so…

“Losing My Religion”   Anouk

lyrics {or an approximation} ~

Oh life, it’s bigger
It’s bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I’ve said enough

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep an eye on you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I’ve said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Every whisper
Of every waking hour
I’m choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt, lost and blinded fool, fool
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

Well, consider this
Consider this the end of the century
Consider this, as well
It brought me to my knees,  Hell
What if all these fantasies
Come flailing around
Now I’ve said too much

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep an eye on you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
Try, try, try
That was just a dream
Just a dream
Just a dream, dream….

  1. Sad and plaintive but beautifully written dani ♥ thank you for sharing your Lovely words with us.

  2. Very sad to love someone deeply and then find that they didn’t treasure the love in the same way! Well expressed, Dani.
