Turn It Up Tuesday: Say Something (I'm Giving Up On You)

Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'll be the one if you want me to
Anywhere, I would have followed you
Say something I'm giving up on you

Hey! Karlie here, dropping by for Turn It Up Tuesday. Say Something by A Great Big World is today's feature.

They say love is blind. For two of my characters, Clark and Aria, that was certainly true, but in vastly different ways. He loved her so much he let her step on him, ignore him, laugh at him. See right through him.
She loved someone else so much she never saw his true colors until he betrayed her, all her friends, and tried to kill her - nearly succeeding. When all that heartbreak and pain was over, Clark was still there for her, just like he'd always been. And she realized that she loved him, and had all along.
  But he was tired of waiting. Most of all, he was sick of being second choice. The day she tells him the truth, is the day he's decided to say goodbye.

And I
Am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all
And I
Will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl

He suddenly realizes all the chances he's missed out on. Letting her go hurts, but it's a cleansing pain. The sudden feeling of freedom is intoxicating. For the first time, his perceptions of her don't color the world.

And I
Will swallow my pride
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye
Say something I'm giving up on you
And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
Anywhere, I would have followed you, oh, oh,
Say something I'm giving up on you.
Say something...

Time will tell if their love is dead, or if circumstances throw them back together - one thing's for sure, any relationship these two share will be anything but boring....anything but easy.
But true love never is.



  1. I LOVE this song. Have you heard Alex and Sierra's version? They were the winners of the most recent X-Factor show. I like Alex's voice better for this song than the original guy's. Also, I've never been too fond of Christina Aguelera (sp) personality-wise, so I can't exactly enjoy watching the video, though I do have to admit she can sing beautifully.

  2. I'll have to look that up and listen to them. I'm not a huge fan of Christina either - she can be so mean and rude to people.
