Tell Me Why!!

Posted by Hannah at 9:32 AM

Someone mentioned the song, "Tell Me Why" by Taylor Swift.  I'm not truly familiar with her music, but her words were very telling.  The first time I listened I thought WOW she is speaking about the dynamics of verbal abuse and emotional abuse...I wonder if most people noticed that?

On the other hand, when I listened to Tell  Me Why a second time?  I thought of all the rebukes this person would get.  I won't say 'woman' because quite frankly?  I could hear the excuses being handed to every man, women and child.

The artist doesn't have a video for this song, but I found a video link on You Tube for Tell Me Why that gives you the lyrics on the screen.






I took a chance
I took a shot
And you might think I’m bulletproof
But I’m not
You took a swing
I took it hard
And down here from the ground I see who you are

I’m sick and tired of your attitude
I’m feeling like I don’t know you
You tell me that you love me then you cut me down
And I need you like a heartbeat
But you know you got a mean streak
Makes me run for cover when you’re around
And here’s to you and your temper
Yes I remember what you said last night
and I know that you see what you’re doing to me
Tell me why

You could write a book on how to ruin someone’s perfect day yeayea yeaah
Well I get so confused and frustrated
Forget what i’m trying to say, oh

I’m sick and tired of your reasons
I got no one to believe in
you tell me that you want me, then push me around
And I need you like a heartbeat
But you know you got a mean streak
Makes me run for cover when you’re around
Here’s to you and your temper
Yes I remember what you said last night
and I know that you see what you’re doing to me
Tell Me Why
Taylor Swift Lyrics on www.lyrics-celebrities.anekatips.com

Why ah ah
Do you have to make me feel small
so you can feel whole inside
Why … do you have to put down my dreams
so you’re the only thing on my mind

I’m sick and tired of your attitude
I’m feeling like i don’t know you
You tell me that you want me then cut me down
I’m sick and tired of your reasons
I’ve got no one to believe in
You ask me for my love then you push me around
Here’s to you and your temper
Yes I remember what you said last night
And I know that you see what you’re doing to me
Tell Me Why
Why
Tell Me Why

I take a step back, let you go
I told you I’m not bulletproof
Now you know

Tell me Why?  How often do victims ask that? It speaks of the cycle of abuse very well.  The entitlement people feel, because they think you are bulletproof.

I am a 29 year old sexual child abuse survivor. My abuser was a removed distant family member. I am looking to make connections with other surviors and specifically other survivors who are writing. I just recently published a Christian Childrens book that aims to give hope back to children whom have had theirs stolen. I have a site with my backstory and info on what I have written. Please check it out and leave me a comment.http://auntloubooks.weebly.com/
