You know the song, right? “I know you wanna leave me, but I refuse to let you go. If I have to beg and plead for your sympathy, I don’t mind coz’ you mean that much to me. Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darling, Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go.”
Great song. I love that song. You hear it, and you can’t help but sing along. Gotta love the Temptations! They were, after all, the first “’boy band.” 🙂
If you’re in a relationship with someone, should you beg them to stay if you know they want out? If they stay, won’t that just postpone the inevitable demise of the relationship?
Or is begging supposed to by a way to show how much you truly care? If the other person is thinking about leaving because they think you don’t care about them, then I guess begging would work.
I think I prefer the advice in “Leave the Pieces” by the Wreckers. “It’s all right, I’ll be fine, don’t worry ‘bout this heart of mine, just take your love and hit the road. There’s nothing you can do or say, You’re gonna break my heart, anyway, So just leave the pieces when you go.”
It’s almost painful in it’s honesty.
Ooo, this opens up a whole new avenue for me. I might after to start blogging about the relationship advice in songs. Won’t that be fun?
