Darren Hayes – Unlovable lyrics

Are my lips unkissable?
Are my eyes unlookable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Am I unlovable?

Cynical, jaded, faithless, disappointed, disillusioned, used
If I could take back all my sweat, my tears, my s**, my joy I would
My time, my love, my effort, passion, dedication
In case of mistaken identity I gave these things to you
If I sound angry, bitter, sad, infatuated, it's the truth
Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, just a few
Stages of acceptance that it's really over
It's just so complicated and I'm stupid for believing in you

You make me feel like my father never loved me
You make me feel like the act of love is empty
Am I so unlovable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you don't like?

I had your back, I held you up, I told you you were good enough
It was not reciprocated, you kept affection and yourself apart
You fed your love to me like crumbs to pigeons in the park
Sometimes I think you're satisfied to see me begging like a dog
I wasn't armoured, you were king, I gave my everything
Because sometimes you showed me just a hint of you and then
For just a moment I romanticised the notion
I can take away the torment, I can love you like they never did

You make me feel like my father never loved me (you never loved me)
You make me feel like the act of love is empty (I felt so empty)
Am I so unlovable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you don't like?

You make me feel like my mother, she abandoned me (you abandoned me)
You make me feel like the act of love is empty (I felt so empty)
Am I so unlovable?
Is my heart unbreakable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you despise?

Are my lips unkissable?
Are my eyes unlookable?
Is my s** undoable?
Am I unlovable?
Are my words unlistenable?
Are my hands untouchable?
Am I undesirable?
Am I unlovable?

You make me feel like my father never loved me
You make me feel like the act of love is empty
Am I so unlovable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you don't like?

You make me feel like my father never loved me (you never loved me)
You make me feel like the act of love is empty (I felt so empty)
Am I so unlovable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you don't like?

You make me feel like my mother, she abandoned me (you abandoned me)
You make me feel like the act of love is empty (I felt so empty)
Am I so unlovable?
Is my heart unbreakable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you despise?

You make me feel like my father never loved me (you never loved me)
You make me feel like my mother, she abandoned me (you abandoned me)
You make me feel like my father never loved me (you never loved me)
You make me feel like my mother, she abandoned me (you abandoned me)

    Darren said in an interview that he was once in an abusive relationship and some time after it ended, the other person sent him this long and hurtful email telling him all the reasons why it never worked. He wrote out this long and heartfelt response but never sent it, and this song is nearly word-for-word what that reply would have said.
    This song touches me very much because I've had people make me feel the way he describes having felt. It's devastating.

    Wow, if only there was just one meaning, but that is one of the amazing things about Darren Hayes, and artists in general, they take all the feelings and thoughts etc. That you didn't know how to put into words and they put into a song or poem or something and it's always better than any way you could have described it. When you love somebody and you give and you give and you give and they leave, it sucks and it hurts, and it's one of the pains without visible wound when you wear a smile. They convince you that the only person you can trust or depend on is them and that they are the only person who could ever really love you and then once they get inside you they leave or they convince you that you're not meant for love and that makes me wonder if I really am unlovable, I've spent most of my life changing to be what other people want me to be, it's amazing at what someone would do for love. This song just leaves me truly speechless and these words don't even begin to do justice to this song and it's very breathtaking =]
