I’m not going to lie. When I first heard this song I thought WTF? “I can’t stop how I’m feeling/It’s like I need you/And if you let me, I can fix you” – um…ok – I suddenly hear The Police in my head and imagine an ex I once had. Here’s the video –
It’s fluffy, I know – I actually like the beat. The more I listen to it, the more I can picture teen/early 20′s me saying, “If he could just stop doing *insert inappropriate behaviour* we would be so happy. I can change him.” In a way, it makes me wonder how many young people actually feel this way. You know the ones – they always date the guy/girl who treats them like dirt and yet they just can’t seem to let go. “Let me fix you.” It has an almost creep factor to it, and a desperation. Creepy because I can actually associate with it. Desperation because I know that feeling – “Let me fix you.” I’ve matured significantly since my youth and know all too well that you can’t ‘fix’ someone. They aren’t broken. They may be wounded, lost, angry, or just overwhelmed – but you can’t fix them. They have to help themselves.
PS – I won’t comment on styling or clothing.
