He treasures the fact that he doesn't give up on his sweetheart, with whom love doesn't come easily. Instead maybe the two of them should go their separate ways. Someone kick some sense into him; maybe it'll get through that way, huh? The protagonist in this rock song is fed up with "screaming, deceiving and bleeding" for her lover.
Having reached rock bottom, she feels like she's going under, and she's trying to escape their dangerous affair. She can no longer discern his lies and the truth. This is what happens when a toxic relationship goes on too long—it eats away at your sense of self.

She says the so-called love she has for her man cripples her, leaves scars, and makes her bleed love. But she keeps coming back for another helping.
Girl, you are better than this. Pull yourself up by your high heeled boots and keep walking. There's begging a desire to chain one partner up and tie them down and a description of the couple's love as fire, torture, and going to war. Either this lover boy is messed up on drugs or he's not right in the head. Girlfriend, don't stay around to find out.
Run away as fast as you can before something really bad goes down. You know what to do. Her lover has finally changed his toxic ways but instead of being happy she misses the misery.
She misses the lies, fights, screaming matches, fault-finding, the hate, the hurt, and all of the other things that made their relationship poisonous. Some people are never happy.
This should be a deal breaker. She's spent a long time getting over him, yet here she is, acknowledging that she's too lit up to try to turn him down. Bennett was shrewd enough to itemise all the period's teenage style signifiers: And relentless enough to record another song, 'My Boy Flat Top', that, aimed at boys, celebrated the rockabilly hairstyle.a typical teenage love song // tate mcrae
The style that scored with the young public was the slow, unearthly ballad, such as the Penguins' 'Earth Angel' - a true teenage swoon. Its success made Dootsie Williams's Dootone label a magnet for Los Angeles groups and the Meadowlarks - led by year-old Don Julian - were the smoothest. One of their few rockers, 'Boogie Woogie Teenage' is little more than a standard boogie riff. The lyrics celebrate the new youth world - 'Well, if you're ever on jukebox street, let me tell you about the kids you'll meet' - but despite an energetic performance, the horn-based arrangement is rooted in a style that was becoming obsolete.
But the buzzword was out. Entering the US pop charts before 'Heartbreak Hotel', the fresh, doo-wop of 'Why Do Fools Fall in Love' reached number six, making the group authentic adolescent deities and an inspiration to their peers. Sweet Little Sixteen, Chuck Berry Berry's huge hit is a peerless invocation of the young female consumer upon whom pop culture rests. The last verse gets to the heart of the problem, sex: Released the month after Buddy Holly's death - the Belmonts had been on the same tour but could not afford the money for the fatal plane ride - this was their biggest hit to date.
Sparse and melodic, it hit the market for adolescent self-absorption fair and square, rising to number 5 in the US. Like Frankie Lymon, Dion's innocent vocal worked against his own experience. Unlike Lymon, however, he survived and continues to record today. I've got the blues, man. Teenage Love, The Five Chesternuts With a good dose of brutally simple instrumentation and yearning lyric, 'Teenage Love' marks the moment when Brits started to make decent pop records.
It was quickly followed by Cliff Richard's 'Move It'. Real-life teens, the Five Chesternuts included future Shadows Bruce Welch and Hank Marvin, who co-wrote this rudimentary Buddy Holly knock-off that contains within its lilting energy the first-time innocence of a generation finding its voice. A Teenager's Letter of Promises, Sun Ra The word 'teenager' was such a hot branding device that Sun Ra, the jazz band leader who claimed to have been to Saturn, turned his hand to the topic.
Already experienced in doo-wop, Sun R as Mr V put together this bizarre, spookily effective mixture of echoed recitative 'And now reminiscent of the lover's voice, I shall be the shadow lying at your feet' and yearning female vocal by Juanita Rogers.

Teen Angel, Mark Dinning With its melodramatic storyline - car stalls on train line, the pair escape, the girl goes back for Mark's high school ring and dies - this ghoulish slice of kitsch went to number one in the US. Dinning was a country singer in his mid-twenties when he recorded 'Teen Angel'.
Its morbidity tapped into the Romantic nexus of youth and premature death that had been a staple of 20th-century culture - think of Rudy Valentino - and what Fifties teens claimed as their own with James Dean and Buddy Holly.
The Beat Generation, Bob McFadden and Dor 'Generation' had long been one of the keywords unlocking the key to the 20th-century youth world. In the hands of the Expressionists and the Futurists during the s, it tended to take on a punkish, crudely ideological flavour - ie we're young: From the lost generation to the beat generation was not too big a step: The beat generation became national news after Jack Kerouac's On the Road By the term had become shorthand for a new youth style.
Sixteen years later, Richard Hell stole the riff and the lyric for his manifesto, 'Blank Generation'. Nowhere is his determination 'to cater to the teenage market' more apparent than on this early attempt. An American dancer and actor, Chakiris was one year away from stardom and an Oscar in West Side Story when he cut this formulaic ode to the mythical girl 'who is only 17'. Meek would soon perfect his approach. Despite a Norrie Paramor production - Light Programme strings and brass, dreadful 'ye-ye-ye' back-ups - she stamps her authority on the lyric: The Young Ones, Cliff Richard The theme tune to the 'let's do the show right here' clean teen film and the start of Cliff's imperial period, 'The Young Ones' went in at number one in the UK in January and stayed there for six weeks.
A great pop production - with the swing of the Shadows balancing producer Norrie Paramor's sweetening tendencies - the song celebrates living in the present and the transience of youth. I Saw Her Standing There, The Beatles Titled 'Seventeen' until the last moment, the lead track from the Beatles' first album acted as a manifesto for a new pop age.
No pizzicato strings or shrill female back-ups here, just tough, guitar-driven rock'n'roll and sharp, colloquial lyrics 'she was just seventeen, you know what I mean' that described teenage life as it was or could be. Right from the count-off, these tough girls know what they want and know how to get it. It was put together by Shadow Morton, of Shangri-Las fame. When I Grow Up To Be a ManThe Beach Boys A fascinating concept - a look at adolescence from the point of view of adulthood written by an adolescent - is matched by an inventive production: As a term that had often denoted adult exploitation, it had become obsolete.
Pop groups did not discuss what it was to be young, they just hit you with the raw emotional state. However, the word generation still held power, no more so than in this blast of fury, where the manic air raid finale takes you right into the state that the lyrics are attempting to describe. The extraordinary thing in retrospect is that this record was a hit. Many observers have stuck on the 'hope I die before I get old' lyric, but 'My Generation' goes deeper.
Pete Townshend was one of pop's most psychological writers, and 'My Generation' sounds more like war damage than anything else. My Degeneration, The Eyes Tragedy replayed as farce. Their failure to do so was their 'degeneration', which was not how moralists would have seen it.
This song recast the frustration of 'Summertime Blues' within folk-rock modes but, despite a TV plug on Batman, it succumbed to the fate predicted by the lyric: When I Was Young, Eric Burdon and the Animals Burdon was only 25 when he wrote this confessional, but he had gone through some kind of rebirth.
In place of the hard-drinking r'n'b singer who had made tough beat records, there was a reflective, angst-ridden man looking back at his brief life: If the psychedelic production didn't alert you, then there was the flip: Excerpt from a Teenage Opera, Keith West A huge UK hit in the autumn ofthis four-and-a-half minute song summarised many of that year's fads: However, it does not refer to adolescents at all, being a taster for producer Mark Wirtz's ambitious and stillborn A Teenage Opera - which is very of the period.
An Open Letter to My Teenage Son, Victor Lundberg In America, Vietnam was the flashpoint for the generational war and as the conflict escalated, so the sides became more entrenched. This long recitative begins with Lundberg talking about long hair and beards on men - he can deal with them - and his willingness to judge his son 'not merely as a teenager'.
Not all teenagers are 'drunken dope addicts or glue-sniffers'.
Then the patriotic music swells. Pot Party, Mike Curb Over ominous bass and guitar fret-scrapings, our gravel-voiced guide extends an invitation: Sugar Mountain, Neil Young A definitive emotional summary of adolescence.
Teenage Lust, MC5 With the turn of the Seventies, a new micro-generation sought to distance itself from the hippies. From Back in the USA comes this witty tale of frustration.
