#MusicMonday ft. Broken by Seether ft. Amy Lee

Hi and welcome to #MusicMonday, originally hosted by Drew a.k.a. @SarcasticEnigma over on The Tattooed Book Geek. Each week he presents a song that he really loves so be sure to check out what he has in store for you!

When I was on YouTube last week for Careless Whisper, I not only discovered a Careless Whisper cover by Seether, but also this song, which I LOVED back in the day, but had somehow completely forgotten about. So I decided to feature it today, and reminisce 😊 I love Amy Lee’s voice and the combination with Shaun Morgan’s gravelly voice is just amazing.

Some fun facts:
Lee and Morgan were an item at the time.
Morgan said in an interview once that he wrote the song for his daughter.
The location where this music video was shot used to be a real-life trailer park that was burned to ashes by a crystal meth lab explosion.

[Verse 1: Shaun Morgan]
I wanted you to know that I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph and I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain
[Chorus 1: Shaun Morgan & Amy Lee]
Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away
[Post-Chorus: Shaun Morgan]
You’ve gone away
You don’t feel me here anymore
[Verse 2: Amy Lee]
The worst is over now and we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There’s so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain
[Chorus 2: Shaun Morgan & Amy Lee]
Cause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away
[Chorus 2: Shaun Morgan & Amy Lee]
Cause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away
[Chorus 1: Shaun Morgan & Amy Lee]
Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone
[Post-Chorus: Shaun Morgan]
You’ve gone away
You don’t feel me here anymore

Thanks for reading & listening! See you next week for another Music Monday!
